Kairos, proudly announced as „the world’s first and only mechanical watch hybrid”, is one of those gadgets that you just have to have even from their pre-order stage. Luckily, this shiny wrist toy will be available in less than two months, the early bird special prices having as much as 60% discount from its retail price. (Even with these discounts, the prices still range from $499 to a steep $1199.) These being said, let’s move on to what the watch is all about and see why getting one is absolutely worth it.

Available in two models, MSW and SSW, in metal and gold, the Kairos draws its name from an ancient Greek word which basically means „the right moment”, translating into the motto of „make every moment an opportunity.” The watch itself will come with the option of being sent in for upgrades, each upgrade coming with the price-tag of $99 but ensuring that your „moment” will always be updated and therefore will last forever.

[adsense300gray]Telling the time and only that is no longer the sole feature of a watch, especially not in 2014. We are living in the future, so we need watches that keep up with the demands of our rushed lifestyles. From texts to e-mails to push alerts from your favorite apps, the Kairos will keep you informed. Not only that, but you can use the Kairos watch to control your smartphone or tablet remotely, enabling you to take pictures from far away. Plus, you can now track how many steps you’ve made, how much calories you’ve burned and how much time everything took through the smart watch alone. 

International buyers, fret not! The Kairos has an expanded language support, including English, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Its battery lasts from 5 to 7 days, while the mechanical movement lasts up to 42 hours. Perfect for business travelers, the Kairos even has a GPS enabled automatic world time display function.
