Tokyo Flash Kisai Rogue Touch
Whether it’s the polished gunmetal finish or LCD/LED display, your wrist is destined to shine. Set the time and control watch settings with the four-sensitive touch hotspots. The lines on the display represent hours, minutes, seconds, date, and another time zone if necessary. It may take awhile to adapt to, but with time, you’ll figure it out.
The Mutewatch is super low key. Its simplistic design resembles a wristband, but with a light tapped to the display, life is given to this sweet piece of machinery. Features consist of an alarm and timer, which support swipe, tap, and pinch functionality. A built-in motion sensor controls the alarm vibration and light intensity. Hook it up to a USB and spoil yourself with upgrades.
