The Quadtec digital LCD watch by Equitime takes a fresh approach to display time digitally. The Quadtec watch can be set to show the number of minutes to the full hour. Additionally it is the first watch to display the minutes at the location of the current quarter.
The design is actually that smart to switch the count down of minutes after the first 30 min. The result is that you actually start reading the time on a digital display as you would on an analog one. You start saying 11 min. to ten instead 9:49. This is really a great idea.
You can customize the Quadtec time display in several ways to find the most comfortable way for you to tell the time naturally.
Japanese online watch store Tokyoflash just informed us about a new LED Wristwatch, which is supposed to be the world's smallest LED watch.
Tokyoflash should have the overview of all LED watches so I believe them if they say the Retsu by Saishin LED watch is the world's smallest LED watch. Measurements of this cryptic LED watch are 25mm x 30mm x 8mm and the weight is 40g. The metal dial features a clean design and the watch comes with a black suede strap.
The small size comes at a price. This LED watch has 10 LED dots to tell time. You have to push a button and then the watch displays in sequence the digits fo the current time. It does not get much more minimalist than this.
Tokyoflash sells the Retsu by Saishin for $127.08 with free world-wide shipping.

HP has revealed its new hub for mobile devices and it's a... wristwatch? Yes it's true HP has developed the first wearable communication hub. The watch will handle a user's connectivity requirements. All the user's mobile devices will simply communicate solely with the hub.

So we have this concept of a watch, which is something we are driving to. Devices just need to communicate with this watch."
At TimeZone, Mike Margolis quotes an email from Jean-Claude Biver. JC Biver is the man behind Hublot. He seems to follow some other smart CEO’s from watch manufacturers, by posting and scanning on watch forums. Below his email, as quoted by Mike Margolis:
