Today, we’ve got a bit of a last-minute Kickstarter notice for you. I know normally we bring these to your attention with plenty of advance notice, but this one fell into my backlog, and, well, I’d rather pop this one up there than ignore it, as it’s bringing something to the table that I’ve not seen in a watch before.

When I met with the company, they had said they were planning an automatic for the future.

Our pal Matt Himmelstein is back with another Kickstarter watch, the Mouve M01. If you ask me, this one definitely has hints of Panerai and/or Tsovet – which I’ll leave to you as to whether or not that’s a good thing. Read on to see what Matt thought of the watch.

Over at aBlogtoWatch, we’ve been covering quite a few different smart watches as they’ve hit the market, or at least been introduced to the public. All of those watches quite literally require a connection of some sort to your phone for the fun features to be activated. The folks over at Neptune are looking to change that dynamic.
