Silent LED Mutewatch sells for PHP 12,950

It’s called the Mutewatch because it’s silent. No moving parts, everything digital. The Mutewatch reminds me of the Nike+ bands that got all-too popular because of the running craze back in 2008. I finally got my hands on one, thanks to the fine folks of Digits Trading and I’ve never been so excited to wear a watch. Because, well, I hate watches. This one is geeky, so it’s a different story.

What it is: A touch screen watch that charges via USB

What makes it cool: Geek factor

It doesn’t play music. It doesn’t store data. So why does the Mutewatch make my head turn? I’m not even fond of watches but I’m wearing this one today!

Above: The strap is pretty much snap-on. And wait, I forgot to set the time!

The Mutewatch is a minimalist archon of beauty with a LED display capable of working for 5 days on a single charge. The watch strap hides a USB slot which you can plug into any computer to charge. Two things to note: the LED display has an accelerometer underneath which lets you flick your wrist to activate the clock. The display is also capacitive, so swiping it left and right scrolls through the slim number of features which are essentially the clock settings, alarm, mode, and timer.

Peel open the strap flap and you’ll find the USB plug for charging purposes. One charge can last about 5 days.

The Mutewatch sells for PHP 12,950.00 and can be bought in Digital Walker.
