Vogard announces a new twist on an old concept, the Chronozoner

Posted on 17 June 2009 by John Biggs

czVogard is a name you may not have heard before, but they have been around for a while. Recently as Baselworld, they announced the “Chronozoner” – a world time chronograph with a rather unique method of changing time zones.

By simply turning the bezel on the front of the watch, it is possible to select from any one of the 24 major time zones. And to celebrate the launch of the Chronozoner, Vogard has announced a limited edition 24 piece run (one for each time zone). The limited edition pieces will feature a platinum bezel, and be numbered from -12 to +12.

Garmin Fortrex 401/301 released

Posted on 17 June 2009 by John Biggs

301Garmin announced a new wrist wearable GPS today, which I think looks remarkably like military tech seeping into the civilian sector. Considering that GPS technology itself was originally military, this doesn’t come as a great shock. And while there have been other wrist wearable GPS options available, the Foretrex line seems to be hitting that sweet spot of functionality and features. Garmin has brought some wrist based units to market before, but they have been aimed more at the jogging crowd and less at the high adventure types.

Currently, there are only two units in the Foretrex line, the 401 and 301. Both units are WAAS (used to improve the accuracy of the GPS system) enabled, and highly sensitive, intended to lock on and stay locked on in order to track your path as you move on your hike or trek or off road adventure. Both models are expected to be released in the 3rd quarter 2009, with the 301 retailing for $199, and the 401 for $249. For the price difference, I’d definitely recommend the 401, the compass and barometer could save your life. Here’s the press release with all the info:

Six for the ladies – new Casio “Baby-G” wristwatches announced

Posted on 02 June 2009 by John Biggs

pinky-gCasio announced several new additions to their Baby-G line recently, including some eye-catchingly bright pink models. Despite the questionable style choices, the new additions are solid watches.

In keeping with the typical G-shock design, the Baby-G is water resistant to 100 meters, solar powered, syncs with the atomic clock, and has the typical combination of 5 alarms, a 1/100th of a second stopwatch, world clock, and an LED light.

Retailing for $99, expect to find the Casio Baby-G at your favorite woman’s jewelry counter.
