Ideal for those who hate clunky smartwatches, the Calendar Watch from 'What? Watch' combines a timeless watch design with a user’s digital calendar to display the user's digital calendar at a glance.

With its singular digital function melded with a classic analog design, Calendar Watch syncs with a smartphone, providing users with a seamless display of their full day’s schedule on the watch face—without buttons or dials.

Calendar Watch syncs with a user’s existing digital calendar via a free companion mobile app on Android and iOS. The watch converts the standard, linear schedule into blocks of time on the watch interface, like pieces of a pie chart. Events are displayed as darkened blocks of time on the watch’s e-paper display.

Calendar Watch features K1 hardened mineral glass and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which lasts for nearly six weeks before needing charged. Because the watch syncs with smartphones via Bluetooth, the watch’s hands will always be synced to the precise time, adjusting to time zones as necessary. Additionally, the watch is armed with a vibration sensor, allowing users to toggle its second hand and Bluetooth off for power-saving mode, and alternate calendar display modes with a simple finger tap against its face.

Calendar Watch is available in three finishes: Aqua Blue, Polar White and Verdant Green for $299 and a special-edition Gunmetal Black for $329.
