I was strongly considering picking up a $100 Android Wear LG G Watch to tide me over until the next generation came out, until I read that it doesn't work well with Lollipop. Personally, I just like having a watch strapped to me at all times, although with the Android Wear ones currently available current battery lives are so low that I would need to charge it regularly rather than being able to wear it to bed. I loathe clockface timepieces and have been wearing a digital Suunto for a while now so it would be nice to upgrade. Perhaps I'll rock the Buckminster Fuller lifestyle and wear both.

Timex unveiled a raft of new watches at the BaselWorld fair in March, returning to its heritage and rich archive in a number of products. Launching at BaselWorld 2010, and in-store in selected locations from September 2010, Timex Originals is a collection of vintage-influenced timepieces which celebrate Timexs 156-year heritage. Inspired by its extensive product archives, the collection aims to describe the Timex story through design, while delivering a message of authenticity. The highlight is a striking reissue of a Timex watch from the 1970s. Maintaining all of the design details and signatures which give it individuality, the watch has been reproduced using modern materials and technology to deliver a contemporary... Dial designs from key decades also feature strongly, while Timex has sought inspiration from classic watch faces from the 20th century. From a pocket-watch in the early 1900s to a 'Q electric watch in the 1970s, via the 1940s and 50s, each of the dials pays homage to its era through type-face, colours, detailing and finish. Key features include water-resistance to 50m and the Timex-patented Indiglo night-light.
