Wristwatches have been around since the 1920s; their main function (and sometimes their only function) is to tell us the time whenever we need to find that information out. But we are in the 21st century now, and watches should do more than just tell us the time, right?
So, maybe you’ve had enough of your standard TAG Heuer and want to move from the classic style into something futuristic… Well if you want to find out what the future holds for watches, wait no more as we bring you details on 5 futuristic watches that you can actually buy today!
Phosphor Touch Time Digital Watch

Digital watches haven’t really changed that much in the past 20 or so years, but here is where the Phosphor Touch Time digital watch aims to revolutionise the digital watch market.
This next generation of digital wristwatch has a smartphone feel to it, with the ability to launch a number of apps – alarm, stopwatch, reminder, world time, calendar, calculator, and even an app to display information on moon phases and horoscopes!
There are no buttons on this watch; one just simply uses the touch screen to swipe across the different apps and functions. A user-replaceable standard watch cell battery powers it and last over a year before requiring replacement.
The Faceless Watch

Who said that watches of the future had to have a display or face on them? The faceless watch by Hammacher Schlemmer has four disguised LCDs, which are seamlessly blended into the watch’s stainless steel links.
The top row of LCDs display the hour and the lower row of LCDs display the minute; and with the press of a button, you can switch the view to day and month.

This is such an awesome watch! It has no hour and minute hands on it; instead it combines the beauty of colour and form by displaying the time using two transparent coloured, overlapping discs, creating a stylish blue and grey array of colours.
The ZIIIRO Celeste has a matt coloured stainless steel case and strap, and is available in four different colour combinations – black (with mono discs), gunmetal (with mono or coloured discs), and chrome (with coloured discs).
MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt Watch

Probably not to everyone’s tastes, but the MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt Watch is an aviation-inspired wristwatch, which is very definitely futuristic!! Boasting over 65 main components, it has dual dials; one for displaying the time and the other one for showing you how much (battery) power you have left.
It is made from grade five titanium and sapphire, and its “horological engine” consists of 311 tiny components.
TechAffect Colour Arc

The TechAffect Colour Arc watch has a kind of retro feel to it. Featuring 29 super bright multi-colour LEDs, they offer an alternative way of telling you the time, as well as what day and month it is. It has adjustable brightness control, and it can light up automatically every 10 to 50 minutes.
If you like all things shiny and bright, then you simply must get yourself this watch!
