Anyone who knows me know that I love anything pink. Throw some rhinestones in, and that's the icing on the cake. That's why it was love at first sight when I noticed the Phosphor Appear watch on the wrist of a stranger at CES. Seriously, a watch that uses Swarovski crystals to display the time? After seeing it in action, we put it to the test. I've had the Phosphor Appear for a couple of weeks now. Is the watch as good as I first thought? Read on for our full review.
The Phosphor Appear is a great looking watch, and a cool gadget to boot! We saw this one at CES, and had to get our hands on one as soon as we saw it. The Phosphor Appear is driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information. Every minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, which in turn, displays the passing time while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line. You can pick up the Phosphor Appear on Amazon. This video was recorded at CES 2012.
We came across the Phosphor Appear watch line at CES. Although the company wasn't exhibiting there, we spotted the watch on someone's wrist and asked them about it immediately. It's definitely an eye-catching timepiece, and it's a cool gadget as well.

We'll have our review of the Phosphor Appear up later today. For now, enjoy this photo gallery showing it off! You can find great deals on the Phosphor Appear on Amazon.

Want beauty, practicality and the opportunity to get a free pair of chicBuds? Then read on, because we’ve got something you’ll want to hear…
On the beautiful side, chicBuds are detailed with Swarovski Crystals, and come in five delicious colors. On the practical side, they have a cool little clip that allows you to attach them to your bag (so they donʼt get lost,) or to your clothes when you’re at the gym (to keep them from flying around.) The cord also has five stopping points so you don’t have to deal with a cord that’s too long or too short and they are completely retractable so they don’t get tangled. They also come in a candy-like designer tin that will allow you to store both your iPod and the earbuds.
The best part, though, is where the whole “free” thing comes in. Purchase a pair of chicBuds from Dillard’s (online or in-store) or Fred Meyer (store only) before midnight PST on November 28th, and email your copy of your receipt along with your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first 100 people to send in their information will get a free pair of chicBuds sent to them - how’s that for a giveaway? Be sure to check which stores carry them in your area - or just order them online and email in your receipt. The giveaway is only available to US residents only, you know how that goes.
