Phosphor has developed digital watches that are not only ergonomic but utilize E Ink in their displays. There are two modes, a standard numeric digital display and a graphic analog hour clock, and you can switch between them depending on your mood. The display autonomously switches between white-on-black to black-on-white time each passing minute. If you like your timepiece busy, the water-resistant watches run $175.00 to $195.00, depending on your choice of style.

Zoombak understands that two of your best friends are likely to get lost, your pet and your vehicle. Their assisted GPS locator can help you find both.
