Smart watches are the must have gadget of the moment. They have been a popular theme on the blog too, with various weird and wonderful schemes suggested. One of the main issues the blog has highlighted is that not everyone who likes these weird and wonderful schemes necessarily needs all the expensive features that come included in a smart watch, and more importantly they don’t want to pay for features they don’t need.

Design submitted by Andy from the Ukraine.
Andy says: I decided to design concept watch based on hi-tec technologies, internet and on-line camera.
I wanted to offer you an up close and personal uninterrupted view with Big Ben by designing a watch that can display the image of Big Ben clock in real time. The main idea is to utilize a camera aimed at this architectural masterpiece, in this case London iconic clock tower.
