Best Geek Watch

2012 December 6

Check out the Pebble watch. What? Did you expect one of those iconic (ironic?) calculator watches from the 80’s? Please. Grab this hat while you’re at it. The Pebble watch ( runs apps! It uses an e-paper display which can display any clock face imaginable. It’s bluetooth connection syncs up to your iPhone and displays notifications from twitter, facebook, email, etc. Just in case you weren’t connected enough to social media. At $149 it’s a bit pricey, but did I mention it’s a remote display and control for your iPhone?

Let’s explore a few other geek watches.


Gotta be digital.

Gotta be square.

Gotta be a bit large.

Diesel has some designer watches that fit the bill, such as this Diesel Quartz Black Dial men’s watch. Nice.




If the Diesel brand is a bit too pricey for you, this Armitron 408177SIL will fit any budget.  All the features you’d expect in a digital watch, but with a geek’s style.  Whilst wearing it, I’ve had several people comment… one person mistook it for the Pebble.  Score!  I also think it looks better in person than the pictures.  This Armitron is probably my favorite watch I’ve owned in the last 10 years.
