When you open ScrollClock it will display the time, date, and your current battery percentage. Swipe the screen and you can see a list of every function your device performs and the battery life left … Read more
SandArt Clock is exactly as it sounds -- a clock on your iOS device alongside some sand art, and while the art library is interesting, the app offers very little else to recommend it. With limited timekeeping options and an ad at the top that gets in the way of the clock, this clock app is more about the art than it is about timekeeping options.
When you open the app for the first time you'll get a few quick instructions on how to change the time display and the art that displays. Then the app takes over with … Read more
Office Clock for Mac offers nothing more than a basic clock for your Mac dashboard. The widget installs easily and shows time as intended, but lacks any real customization options and settings.

Apart from showing the current time, this widget offers nothing more to add to its usefulness. We were especially disappointed when we clicked on the information icon, expecting to see options or settings, but instead found keyword-based links to other apps available on … Read more
Watchmaker Bathys Hawaii has a different kind of smartwatch in mind these days. The Cesium 133 prototype wristwatch manages to stuff an entire atomic clock into a wearable gadget.
Watches that communicate with atomic clocks to set their time have been around for years, but a wrist-wearable atomic clock is another matter.
The Cesium 133 has the usual gears and levels causing the hands to move, but instead of quartz crystal inside, there's a cesium atomic oscillator. According to Bathys Hawaii, the watch will only lose one second over every 1,000-year period. … Read more

Your future smartwatch may have some company from the Ring Clock, an Indiegogo project that's gearing up to create a unique finger-worn timepiece made from stainless steel and LEDs. When you rotate the ring, the time is displayed.
The Ring Clock is still somewhat in concept form, though the production timeline calls for a prototype to be finished by the end of this year, if the fixed-funding campaign reaches its $287,500 goal. If all goes according to plan, production would begin by the spring of 2014.… Read more
