New dog-friendly Riley’s Sandwich Co.
opening soon in Shorewood
What happens when a love for both delicious sandwiches and furry friends collide?
Customers will find out when Riley’s Sandwich Company opens to the public on Feb. 20 at 4473 N. Oakland Ave.
Inspired by sandwich icons like New York’s Katz Deli and San Francisco’s Deli Board, the new venue will specialize in creative sandwiches, salads and sides. At the same time, the business will also showcase a separate-but-front-facing retail space where dog lovers can hang out with their pooches and purchase dog treats and swag.
Behind Riley’s Sandwich Shop is Jessica Ludwig, a long-time dog lover who says her dream job has always been to open and operate a dog sanctuary. It’s an idea which evolved over the years into a vision for Riley’s Sandwich Co., a place where folks could come and grab a bite of something exceptional to eat without leaving their furry friends behind.
“I have such a huge love for both food – especially sandwiches –and dogs,” says Ludwig, “That it only made sense to bring the two together. We take our dog Riley with us whenever we can; but we’ve also run into any number of scenarios where one of us has to stay outside with the dog while the other person goes inside. My goal was to create a place where both dogs and people were welcome.”
Ludwig says she’s taken inspiration from dog friendly venues like the Iron Horse Hotel where Riley – a rescued Beagle, Corgi, Jack Russell Terrier mix – is just as welcome as any human.
“It’s one of those amazing places where you do run into people and their dogs on a regular basis,” she says. “And spending time there really inspired me and gave me confidence that we could create a similarly dog friendly spot.”
Ludwig says she was able to move forward with her idea thanks to help from Athena Agoudemos of the UW-Milwaukee Small Business Development Center, who assisted in brokering connections and offering business guidance that assisted in bringing Ludwig’s vision to life.
Inside the 600 square foot venue, located next door to Nino’s Southern Sides, guests will find two things: a welcoming, dog-friendly retail space decorated with homage to precious pooches; and a pick-up spot for beautifully presented, creative sandwiches.
Inside the retail space, guests can expect elements like dog-themed wallpaper, a television highlighting dogs available for adoption and interactive elements like a dog selfie booth, offering the opportunity for canine owners to capture special moments with their happy hounds.
They will also be able to pick up dog treats from local companies like Leashless Lab and Good Hound Co., and peruse an evolving collection of swag and fun dog-themed finds.
And while Riley is unlikely to spend much time in the shop, she’ll be there in spirit thanks to a wall of puppy portraits on her namesake wall.
As for the sandwich shop… that’s an element that will be significantly less visible. Guests will find a menu and ordering instructions (Riley’s Rule) inside the shop; but in order to keep food safety at the fore, the sandwich shop portion of Riley’s will operate a bit like a ghost kitchen, with no dining area, pick-up window or counter.
Instead, all orders will be placed online (via the Toast app or QR code) for either pick-up or delivery. Carry-out guests can wait for their orders in the retail shop, if they’d like. When their food is ready, they will receive a text alert and a Riley’s employee will tranverse the tiny alley alongside the building, bringing the goods from the hidden kitchen directly to the consumer.
In keeping with its unique model, the restaurant will also operate sans tipping; instead employees will be offered bonuses based on sales and given opportunities to contribute to the business based on their own unique skill sets. The goal, says Ludwig, is to create a place where employees feel invested, a true part of the operations.
As for the menu, guests will find a small ever-changing selection of housemade sandwiches (including brunch options on weekends) along with salads and sides, all driven by both demand and the seasons.
There will also be a selection of beverages, including beer from Black Husky Brewing and wines from New Glarus’ Bailey’s Run Vineyard & Winery (also, unsurprisingly, named for a beloved pup), along with cocktail kits, including brunch-worthy mimosa kits with freshly squeezed orange juice.
The non-traditional restaurant kitchen will use sous-vide as a primary cooking method, with proteins and vegetables finished in the oven. And guests will find a mix of imaginative sandwiches and salads, along with staples like house-braised brisket sandwiches; a chicken Philly with onions, peppers and housemade cheese sauce; and mid-rare steak with garlic, onions, peppers, mushrooms and cheese (pictured below).
Vegetarian and vegan options will also be a feature, as will brunch sandwiches featuring omelettes a la sous-vide. All sandwiches will be served on breads sourced from Wild Flour Bakery, and sides will include items like Wisconsin-sourced potato chips; vegetables and hummus; and housemade guacamole and chips. (You can get a peep at more by following Riley’s on Instagram).
Ludwig says she’s excited to introduce Riley’s to the public, as well as to be a part of the lively business community in Shorewood.
“We love this area,” she says. “We love the lake. And it’s such an active area in so many ways. It’s the perfect location for a business like this, and we can’t wait to welcome all of our neighbors and their dogs.”
Beginning Feb. 20, Riley’s Sandwich Co. will be open Wednesday through Friday from 5 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

How to choose a watch?
Have you decided to buy a wristwatch? In this article, we will help you understand the various functions, mechanisms, glasses, water resistance and other parameters of a wristwatch. You just have to decide which brand of wristwatch you like the most.
It should be noted that the wristwatch on the wrist must correspond to the time and place. Despite the fact that some models are versatile, a gradation should be made between models for outdoor activities and wristwatches for social entertainment. Most companies have a wide range of models, among which you can choose a wristwatch for any situation.
Among the huge assortment of Swiss watches, however, there are certain patterns. As a rule, men’s wristwatches are distinguished by strict elegance. In contrast to them, women’s wristwatches often play the role of decoration. Authentic wristwatches can be anything – they are always reliable!
Quartz or mechanical? That is the question!
Undoubtedly, when choosing a watch, every person has ever wondered which mechanism is better and more durable – quartz or mechanical? After all, the mechanism is the first thing to pay special attention to when choosing a watch.The movement is the heart of the watch, in which all elements must work harmoniously, with the most minimal errors.
What is the main difference between quartz and mechanics?
The main difference between a quartz watch and a mechanical one is that it is used as a source of energy that ensures the operation of the watch mechanism.
In a quartz watch, the energy source is a battery that powers the electronic unit of the quartz watch and the stepping motor.The electronic unit sends a signal to the engine once a second, which in turn turns the arrows. A very high stability of the frequency of the generated pulses and, therefore, a high accuracy of the movement is ensured by a quartz crystal, in addition, the battery is designed for several years of operation, so a quartz watch does not need to be wound up.
Mechanical watches use a coil spring located in a drum with a toothed edge. When winding the watch, the spring is twisted, and when it is unwound, the spring sets in motion a drum, the rotation of which sets the entire clockwork in motion.
Which watch is more accurate?
In mechanical watches, the accuracy of movement depends on many factors, such as ambient temperature, position of the watch, wear of parts, adjustments. In a quartz watch, everything is simpler: the frequency of the pulses generated by a quartz oscillator is practically constant. And the engine and arrows are just an additional device, their job is to rotate on command.
Therefore, for mechanical watches, it is considered the norm for a discrepancy with the exact time of 15-30 seconds per day, and the best result is 4-5 seconds per day.And if for a mechanical watch a deviation of + -20 seconds per day is considered a good result, of which + -5 seconds is almost the limit, then the bulk of quartz watches provide an accuracy of about + -20 seconds per month, and the best ones – up to + -5 seconds per year.
Even a cheap quartz watch is more accurate than a mechanical chronometer. But at the same time, mechanical watches are considered at times more status and win in terms of their image.
It is necessary to distinguish between waterproof watches and waterproof ones, i.e.j. most water resistant watches can withstand a small amount of water for a short period of time. Washing your hands or being in the rain will not harm a water-resistant watch, but showering, especially with gel, or being under water for a long time will allow moisture to enter the case and damage the mechanism.
Unfortunately, very often people, seeing the inscription “water resistant” (water protection), boldly jump into the water to swim, and then not very pleasant consequences await them. The problem is that some do not fully know what the number next to the water resistance label means.
The indicated meters of water resistance correspond to a certain value of pressure that the watch can withstand. Pressure is expressed in atmospheres, one atmosphere is equal to the pressure of a water column of 10 meters, but this does not mean at all that in a watch you can submerge under water to a depth of 10 or 30 meters.
on the case
|II||3 atm (30 m)||+||–||–||–|
|III||5 atm (50 m)||+||? *||–||–|
|IV||10 atm (100 m)||+||+||+||–|
Hermetic watch 3ATM (30 m. ) – 5 ATM (50 m.)
If the watch bears the designation “Water Resistant” or “Water Resistant 30m” or 5 ATM (50 m.), The watch is designed and manufactured to withstand pressures up to 3-5 atm (minimum degree of water resistance), in order to safely withstand accidental and slight contact with liquids (rain, splashing), but they are not intended for swimming or immersion in water or being in the shower.
So, if the watch has the designation “Water Resistant 50m”, it means that the watch is designed and manufactured to withstand pressures up to 5 atm.Such a watch must withstand the penetration of sweat, rain, water droplets when washing hands, and also withstand short-term (accidental) immersion in water.
Hermetic watch 10 ATM (100 m.)
If the watch bears the “Water Resistant 100m” designation, the watch is designed and manufactured to withstand a pressure of 10 atm. Such a watch is convenient for water sports, but it is not designed for scuba diving. After being in seawater, the watch must be rinsed in fresh water and dried.Do not operate the winding mechanism in water.
Hermetic watch 20-30 ATM (200-300 m.)
The watch, which is marked “Water Resistant 200m” and above, can be used for scuba diving, but not more than 2 (two) hours.
Pressure expressed in atmospheres (1 atm – 20 atm) should not be considered equivalent to the depth of immersion in water. When diving, movements performed at a constant depth increase the pressure on the watch.
About glasses in watchmaking
An extremely important part of a watch is glass. It protects your watch from dust getting into the movement. Even a speck of dust imperceptible to the eye can damage the watch. The watch glass also protects the dial from minor mechanical impacts. Through the glass, we look at the dial. How clearly it is visible also depends on the glass. For clearer visibility in watches, usually sports watches, an anti-reflective coating is used. The price of a watch also depends on the hardness and quality of the glass in the watchmaking industry.
Today, as a rule, there are 3 main types of glass used in the watchmaking industry:
- Plastic (hesalite)
- Mineral glass (artificial crystal)
- Sapphire crystal (synthetic or artificial sapphire)
Mineral glass (artificial crystal or silicate glass)
Relatively inexpensive, but harder glass than plastic.Less scratch resistant, but more durable. The advantages of mineral glass are that it can withstand more significant loads than sapphire. And if, in the event of damage to the sapphire glass from its maximum permissible load, the glass breaks into parts like a tempered one and can damage the hands or the dial, then the mineral glass under the same load, at best, will remain intact, at worst it will crack. Mineral glass is widely used in the watchmaking industry (90%), which is why it is often called “ordinary”. This glass, despite its strength, is easy to break, but also inexpensive to change, since any size is produced in large quantities.
Sapphire is one of the hardest and most expensive substances on earth. It is numbered 9 on the Mohs scale, which is used to measure the relative hardness of various materials. (Diamond has number 10, the highest possible hardness.) Sapphire is a hard, transparent material formed from crystallized alumina at high pressure and temperature.Due to this, sapphire has a distinctive feature in comparison with other types of glass – strength, transparency. Your watch may already be worn and scratched, and the glass is still as good as new.
However, sapphire glass can still be scratched, but only with something more durable than sapphire, for example, diamond or synthetic materials containing silicon carbide and occupying an intermediate position between sapphire and diamond on the Mohs scale.
A number of companies (for example, Seiko) use combined glasses consisting of two layers: one thick mineral glass and a thin sapphire layer on top.
It is impossible to visually distinguish the sapphire crystal. Mineral and sapphire crystal look almost the same.
Plastic (hesalite or organic glass)
This glass is used, with some exceptions, in inexpensive watches, as it is the cheapest material. Such glass is good at taking shocks. It is easy to make almost any shape for any watch, which makes this glass affordable. Plastic glass has a fibrous structure and is difficult to break, which is why it is often used in sports watches.
All about the inscription Swiss Made
Swiss Made literally means Swiss Made. If you see such an inscription on your watch, you, of course, imbued with considerable respect for this watch, associating its origin with the glorious traditions of Swiss watchmaking.
The Swiss think the same. They are so proud of Swiss watches, one of the symbols of Switzerland, that they protect them at the level of legislation. A whole body of laws has been developed to protect Swiss quality. And the quality of Swiss watches just needs to be protected, paradoxically, due to its impeccability. Swiss watches are reputed to be the best around the world, and therefore all over the world, almost from the beginning of the glorious history of Swiss watchmaking, they have been pursued by counterfeits. It was to support conscientious manufacturers that the famous “Swiss Made” marking and similar phrases (Swiss movement, Swiss quarz, Suisse and others) began to be used.
In Switzerland, several agencies are involved in the protection of these marks of origin, the main one being The Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, which has issued a list of parameters for conformity to Swiss quality (Verordnung Swiss Made).Their illegal use is punishable by huge fines and product confiscation.
In order to be fully qualified to bear the Swiss Made mark, a watch must:
- Have Swiss movement
- To be collected within Switzerland
- Pass the final quality check in Switzerland
Today, only about a hundred watch companies can mark their products with the inscription Swiss Made, since their products fully comply with the listed requirements.
Swiss Made markings can be present on the dial, watch case or bracelet, and can be translated into other languages, but in any case they must correspond to the information contained in the certificate, which is necessarily attached to the branded watch.
We offer you a list of questions that will help you decide on the choice of watch:
- Do you prefer a mechanical watch or, due to its reliability and convenience, quartz is more suitable for your occasion?
- Do you have one watch and wear it every day?
- Do you prefer a strap or bracelet?
- Do you prefer Roman numerals or Arabic numerals?
- Which watch shape do you like? Circle, square or modern barrel?
- Does the color combination match your outfit?
- Would you like something brighter, more modern or a more classic design?
- Is this brand known in your circle?
- Is the feature set about what you wanted?
- Do you like the design?
- Is the watch the right size and weight?
- Is it comfortable to sit on your arm?
- Is the clasp comfortable?
We have tried to highlight the main points in buying watches that are usually of interest to our customers. We hope that the book will help you in your choice.

The best smartwatches of 2021 – Rating (Top 15)
A few years ago, we could not imagine that soon electronic watches will be called smart. Devices produced by major manufacturers are already capable of replacing a smartphone. But most often they work in pairs – this allows you to quickly read an incoming message without taking your phone out of your pocket.
Of course, all smartphones show the time and date. But what a thing – thin and light, they are now not so compact at all. So let them lie in their pockets and bags, and other smart devices are able to stay in touch, count steps, monitor the state of the body (and much more).
The best smart watches of various price categories, for adults and children, experienced and not very athletes, yes, in general, for everyone who appreciates convenience and comfort – the topic of our today’s rating.
Which brand’s smartwatch is better?
It is only natural that the best smartwatches are produced by companies that make the most popular (in general or in a separate class) smartphones. And there are actually not so many such firms.
Apple . Products with the bitten apple logo have a myriad of fans around the world. And the newly minted owners of the new Iphone almost inevitably strive to complement them with compact, but incredibly multitasking and high-tech Apple Watch, each of the subsequent generations of which, while retaining the recognizable design, becomes more and more modern and advanced.All is well, but the brand is fundamentally focused on compatibility only with its own devices on the IOS axis. And not everyone can easily pull the price tag of “fresh” apple hours (credit organizations rub their hands). Especially if we consider models in a ceramic or titanium case.
Samsung . The South Korean brand is Yabloko’s main competitor. He leads an irreconcilable struggle with them. Sometimes even through legal action. But still the main principle is the release of our own high-quality gadgets of excellent quality with extended functionality.Smart watches of this brand traditionally have a classic round design, are incredibly smart, beautiful and reliable. In addition, they are more versatile in terms of compatibility – they support both the Android OS and the “enemy” IOS. However, Samsung smartwatches work best with branded smartphones.
Garmin . An American brand known as a manufacturer of excellent navigation equipment, but no less famous for its smart, sports watches. In which, by the way, support for GPS, Glonass is a common thing.A lineup for every taste, style and wallet. True, all the best in the upper price range. In full accordance with the truth of life.
Honor . A well-known Chinese company from the structure of Huawei. The assortment includes smartphones and smart watches, the characteristic feature of which is the notorious optimal quality-price ratio. And then you bet! Watch Magic – stylish and inexpensive “wearable devices” with good features for everyday needs and sports. There are analogues from the main brand, but it just so happened that the popularity is higher with Honor.
Amazfit . He’s Huami, he’s Xiaomi. Another good manufacturer from the Middle Kingdom. The watches of this brand are mainly presented in the niche of the mid-price range, but the range also includes, perhaps, the best version of the smartwatch in the budget segment – Amazfit Bip. In general, the lineup is as versatile as possible. The Apple smartwatch design is square or classic round.
There is no point in listing other Chinese and Russian (reselling) brands of inexpensive “handicrafts”.Their name is legion. As a rule, their products show themselves well in the quality of, in fact, watches. But there are enough complaints about smart functions. Much depends on how successful or not very successful the model or even a particular instance.
Rating of the best smartwatches of 2021 – Top 15
How to choose a smartwatch? A small debriefing by category
Let’s start in order.
It is hardly a secret for anyone in which country the affordable electronics are produced.Ordering goods directly from China is already a feature of national shopping. And a considerable number of domestic online stores are not purchased at a local wholesale base. Simple advice: if you want cheaper – choose products from trusted manufacturers from China (for example, Xiaomi, aka Huami, Amazfit). But indistinct remarks with unknown names are best avoided. In addition, many of the declared characteristics of such products often turn out to be software fake.
This group of products includes all of the above, but with a small addition.The fact is that smart watches of some brands produced in China and certified for Russia are counterfeited by other Chinese. Be careful when choosing a store. After all, okay, when the cunning Asians put the battery weaker than the declared one, but what if the plastic turns out to be harmful? When buying at retail, it generally makes sense to always check the certification for baby products.
Smartwatches in the middle price range
In this segment, most often there are models of smartwatches with a good ratio of quality and price from well-established manufacturers.But even here there are enough dissatisfied users, the essence of whose claims, translated from negative into Russian, is roughly the following – I want everything to work better than in expensive premium models, but I didn’t have to pay extra for it.
Do not overestimate the capabilities of a smart watch. Example: Wrist-based heart rate monitors are not medical or professional devices. Their readings are somewhat averaged. And to scold the pedometer for the fact that it reacts to the waves of the hands and shaking is a completely thankless task.
Expensive premium Smart Watch
There are few reasons for nagging, but still. Improved performance, an abundance of various functions will inevitably reduce the battery life. And there’s nothing you can do about it. No new ultra-compact and super-efficient power supply is on the horizon yet.
One more thing. The declared support for LTE based on eSIM in some smartwatches (Apple, Samsung) is not yet provided by Russian telecom operators.And it is not a fact that the situation will improve in the near future. Therefore, it is realistic to count on this function only when traveling to countries where it works.

Casio G-Shock – impact resistance comes first
Perhaps the most popular movement ever in the watchmaking industry. Among the unique features of watches of this type, it is worth noting: a truly shock-resistant case [known as “indestructible”], water resistance [and not only “wash your hands”], functions [both typical – stopwatches, timer, alarm clock, calendar, and advanced – dual or triple sensor [implies the presence of a compass, thermometer or barometer / altimeter], GPS and radio synchronization [when the watch automatically corrects itself from the sources of the exact time], solar power, smart crown Smart Access [convenient movement between functions using the “crown “] other.
Under each selection, we display links to stores only from official Casio dealers in Russia and Ukraine, which lead to the model in the list. As our experience shows, prices change often, so we see no reason to update the material every time for the sake of the current cost.
Top Newest G-Shock Watches 2019
A summary of the latest arrivals from the world of watches from the shock-resistant brand G-Shock. Here you will not find detailed descriptions, reviews, etc.- only G-Shock watches that officially went on sale [on a specific month]. If the series turned out to be colorful, we describe it in a separate blog post and provide a link to the text. New items can be both in the global sale and only in Japan. It is not always a new case, new color styles, different types of straps, etc. are also included in the updates. – Text from: G-Shock 2019 – New Arrivals Only – Monthly Update.
Cheapest G-Shock watch under $ 150
This list includes a series of shock-resistant G-Shock watches up to $ 150.Why not up to $ 100? This range allows you to cover more G-Shocks, which will broaden your horizons when choosing inexpensive options. In fact, these are the top inexpensive models that cannot boast of solar power, radio or GPS synchronization. An ordinary Casio electronic watch, but in a shock-resistant case, beautiful design and pleasant functionality. – Text from Material: Cheap G-Shocks Under $ 150 – Inexpensive Impact Resistance.
Top Popular G-Shock Watches
The Japanese brand G-Shock has long dominated the shock-resistant watch market.But why do customers love jishoks so much? The answer lies in the unique technologies for the development of materials and the strength characteristics of the case. Due to the special structure, the case in such a watch is protected from almost any mechanical impact [strong impact or falling from a height]. The 200-meter water resistance allows easy scuba diving to shallow depths. Not to mention the stylish design that does not repeat from case to case, thus giving us a wide choice. – Text from Material: Top Popular G-Shock Watches – Stylish and Shock Resistant.
Top G-Shock watches in the price range from $ 150 to $ 250
Medium price segment of G-Shocks from $ 150 to $ 250. Such a “middling” model, which can skillfully combine pleasant technologies [compass, thermometer, sometimes solar power and radio synchronization] in a beautiful case. Do not forget about the shock-resistant case and precise movement. – text from the material: Mid-range G-Shock from $ 150 to $ 250 – sensors and new features.
Top G-Shock Carbon Watch
Together with the Baselworld 2019 watch exhibition, a completely new era of shock-resistant watches has started – the era of carbon G-Shock cases. The advantages of carbon fiber are no secret to anyone – carbon is stronger, lighter, more durable than conventional polyurethane, not to mention the stylish and modern appearance of the material. Together with the carbon cases, the Japanese showed a new protective structure Carbon Core Guard, which consists in the presence of a special layer reinforced with carbon fiber, in which the watch module is immersed. – text made from material: G-Shock watch with carbon case – lightweight, strong and durable.
Top Watch G-Shock MTG
Sophisticated, durable, attractive and prestigious thanks to its outstanding design – this is how the Metal Twisted G-SHOCK watch can be described in just a few words. Made from robust stainless steel with ultra-strong sapphire crystal, MT-G models are ideal for demanding business people who value exclusive, prestigious chronometers, but do not want to give up the technology and durability of the G-SHOCK. – text from material: G-Shock MTG – expensive materials, sapphire, under the suit.
Top Watch G-Shock MRG
The G-Shock MRG range is something completely different. On the one hand, the consumer gets all the same rugged characteristics and even limited functionality, if we are talking about completely analog versions, but on the other hand, you get a premium “chip” from G-Shock [titanium case, sapphire crystal, DLC coating and the most advanced Casio watchmaking technology].More than just a shock-resistant watch, the G-Shock MRG is more about status and a true love of Japanese philosophy. – text from material: G-Shock MRG – expensive, stylish, beautiful.
Top G-Shock Mudmaster
G-Shock Mudman lineup [recently the Japanese have re-branded and began to call the collection “MUDMASTER”], where MUD = dirt, and dirt is always an inconvenient environment for watches. The marketing message is simple: even dirt [you can often see dust in a promo] is not scary for G-Shocks.The watch has really received a new level of protection: a certain Badoro case structure protects against the smallest elements. Thus, the watch began to be served under a new sauce – an ideal gadget for rally racing on sand dunes, as well as a military instrument in the harsh conditions of special operations. – text from the material: G-Shock Mudman – against dirt, swamps, moisture.
Top watches G-Shock Rangeman
G-Shock Rangeman – G-Shock or ProTrek? An eternal topic of conversation among Casio watch aficionados.Fundamental differences: functionality VS impact resistance. ProTreks have never been shockproof, but they certainly cannot be called fragile. G-Shock didn’t make it very functional, but they definitely have no problems with durability. One company, two departments, two different philosophies. So why not merge ProTrek functions [compass, barometer, thermometer] into a G-Shock case? We often thought about this … Is there internal competition? Surely … – text from the material: G-Shock Rangeman – rugged case, compass, thermometer, barometer.
Top G-Shock Watch with Pedometer
If you like to play sports and keep track of the dynamics of your performance, then you probably use such simple functions as a stopwatch, timer and even in some cases an alarm clock. But for modern athletes, this is not enough, and technological progress does not stand still, so there are more and more gadgets with advanced capabilities, one of which is an accurate pedometer. The selection consists of a G-Shock watch with a 3-axis pedometer sensor that not only counts the number of steps taken [more in our separate footage] but also tracks your daily goal [set in advance]. – text from the material: G-Shock with a pedometer – accurately counting steps in your workout.
Top Black G-Shock Watch
A selection of black G-Shock watches in various price ranges. For you to understand, Casio-vtsy update the color of the existing cases every month. Some styles only appear in select countries, so it is not always correct to display them [or rare limited editions]. We have selected only popular and selling options.The selection includes both metallic black G-Shocks and polyurethane . – text from the material: Black G-Shock watch – stealth and a piece of “coal”.
Top Yellow G-Shock Watch
A selection of yellow G-Shock watches in various price ranges. For you to understand, Casio-vtsy update the color of the existing cases every month [follow our news]. Some styles only appear in select countries, so it is not always correct to display them [or rare limited editions].We have selected only popular and selling options. – Text from Material: Yellow G-Shock Watch – Brightness and Attractiveness.
Top Orange G-Shock
A selection of orange G-Shock watches in various price ranges. For you to understand, Casio-vtsy update the color of the existing cases every month [follow our news]. Some styles only appear in select countries, so it is not always correct to display them [or rare limited editions].We have selected only popular and selling options. The selection includes watches with both an orange case and an orange strap or dial. – text from the material: Orange G-Shock watch – almost like an orange.
Top G-Shock Analog Watches
The G-Shock hand watch is already moving away from the traditional Japanese classic with an electronic dial, but that doesn’t make it any less popular. The Japanese have learned to make the hands functional, so your main task is to deal with all the functions using the buttons [if the watch is not synchronized with the smartphone].Analog G-Shocks try to be like what we call the “classic look,” and they definitely do it. Shock-resistant shooters are a mix that is hard to find from other manufacturers. – text from the material: G-Shock hand watch – advanced features in a classic way.
Top Digital G-Shock Watch
“Real G-Shocks must be digital” – this is the opinion of the editors of the resource Casioblog.RU. This does not mean that other options fail.Not. It’s about the historical background and functionality. The first G-Shocks were only electronic and it should be noted that it was the electronic dial that made them iconic. The advantages of digital display are obvious: better impact resistance [there are no arrows that can “come off” from the desired position under strong physical impact], better functionality [switching between modes allows you to use the full functionality], usability [several buttons that control everything]. – Text from Material: Digital G-Shock Watch – Electronic Dial Only.
Top G-Shock Watches with Ana-Digi Displays
The type of data display “Ana-Digi” [ana-diji] implies the presence of a pointer display of time [hours, minutes] and electronic windows [or a window]. It is the perfect mix of electronic technology and functionality in a classic watchmaking fashion. I want a shooter and functions – this is ana-diji. As for the G-Shocks in this category, the impact resistance is not affected. In case of strong blows, if the shooters “leave” their positions, they easily return either automatically [using radio synchronization or Tough Movement technology], or using manual correction [the process is described in the instructions]. – text from material: Ana-Digi G-Shock watch – and hands and electronic display.
Casio ProTrek – functionality first
Another very significant brand among the Japanese. If in G-Shock we are talking primarily about impact resistance, then in ProTrek we are talking about functionality. Moreover, the functionality is not ordinary (it is already present – stopwatches, timers, alarms, calendar], but with the help of a triple sensor, which in narrow circles is called “ABC” – altimeter / barometer, compass and thermometer.
Top Latest ProTrek Watches 2017/2016
Series names: PRG-600, PRW-7000, PRW-6100
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
Current Casio ProTrek models support the updated triple sensor, which the manufacturer says is more accurate. Do not forget that the new sensor is also smaller in size, which made the new models more compact. Protracks are not as cheap as G-Shocks, because functionally they are more powerful and you pay extra for that.Compass, barometer and thermometer are key functions and must-haves. How accurately do they work? Each owner can calibrate the sensor readings for a more accurate gadget and then the data will be very realistic. Tracks are often chosen by tourists because of the accuracy and the presence of solar power . On long hikes, solar charging plays a key role.
Top Most Popular ProTrek Watches
Series names: PRW-3000, PRW-3500, PRG-300, PRW-6000
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
Casio ProTrek is the choice of sports enthusiasts.Sports can be completely different: from extreme to casual running. If you are not in this category, it does not matter: many people buy protracks just for the sake of such an unusual appearance. The watch is light, lies pleasantly on the wrist [there are gripping links] and has a readable presentation of information. It should also be understood that this direction is certainly not considered shock-resistant , therefore, respect for the watch will affect the integrity and safety of your friend on his hand. As our real experience shows, it is difficult to “kill” a watch in 98% of life situations.It is corny that you do not need to tempt fate and run over with a car [this is how the strength of G-Shocks is tested].
Top cheapest watches ProTrek
Series names: PRG-270, PRG-300, PRW-3000
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
We are not showing you other inexpensive models because they represent the old era of the first sensor. We see no reason to buy a watch, where the information is no longer so accurate, and of a large size.In short, we do not advise taking the antiquity.
WSD-F20 – ProTrek’s most advanced watch
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
WSD-F20 introduces the generation of Casio smartwatches. The watch runs on Android Wear, supports many sports apps and syncs with your phone. Unfortunately, this kind of power needs to be recharged [not often].
If you are interested in shock resistance, you should look towards the G-Shock with the presence of a sensor.Yes, they have started appearing at Casio [for example Rangeman, GulfMaster and others], but still, they still cannot completely replace the full potential of ProTrek watches.
Casio Edifice – first thing car
Less sports direction, although it positions itself as a watch for motor sports. That is, Edifice can be safely attributed to a beautiful men’s watch of a strictly class. Not shockproof, no compass, barometer, etc.
Top Latest New Watches Edifice
Series names: EQB-501, EFB-301, EFB-504, EFR-552, EFR-556
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
Sport can only manifest itself in the form of a tachymeter on the bezel and the presence of various kinds of stopwatches.True, models with the function of a thermometer and a compass began to appear, but this is so, not for professional use at 100% [our opinion].
Among all the variety of models, we would note the smartwatch direction . Only this is not the smartwatch that you are probably used to, it is more of a smart watch control using your phone. The action is very exciting. Just imagine, the watch face is displayed in a special application and you can control each arrow, but from the phone screen.
Top Smartwatches Edifice
Series names: EQB-700, EQB-600, EQB-501

The key function of “smart” direction is the automatic time correction according to the phone data and easy selection of a different time zone for display in an additional window. The sync operation process is described in detail in our reviews: EQB-700D-2AER – elite status with minimal dial and EQB-600D-1A2ER – smart sync and external beauty.

Casio Edifice is notable for the “lower” level of models that cannot boast of expensive technologies, but have a really attractive appearance and price. For this, buyers love them, and the sales of such models always remain at a high level.

Casio Baby-G – Ladies Shock
Shock resistance and electronic functionality have created a wave of popularity for the Japanese brand G-Shock, which has not faded since the early 90s.Over time, the girls also drew attention to durable watches, but they could not find compact models with an attractive design. The Kasia employees have found a solution – they have created a shock-resistant watch for women under the Baby-G border. All the same shockproof case and water resistance, but in a mini size and a more attractive image.

There is no need to divide into the most expensive and the cheapest, because in 90% of cases the models have the same range: from $ 100 to $ 150.The functionality is not the most advanced, it suits basic sports needs: stopwatch, countdown timer, alarms, etc. The latest innovations often boast a world time function where you can read information in a different time zone in a separate watch window [or via an electronic display]. Baby-G watch is style, bright colors, compact size.
Casio Beside – $ 100-150 Men’s Pointer Watch
We have come to the classic men’s watches of the Beside direction.Casio has a lot of simple analog watches, but the Beside is not one. They have a spirit of adventurism and masculine charisma. Pathos aside, men choose Beside for an affordable price [under $ 100] and a very expensive look.
Series names: BEM-506, BEM-511, BEM-151, BEM-154, BEM-313
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
Minimalism, austerity, male conservatism. No advanced technologies and troubles – only arrows, a 3-year battery, a date window and, in some series, a day of the week and a 24-hour time display.Bracelet or strap? This is your choice. Beautiful? Certainly.
Casio Outgear – Inexpensive ProTrek
Yes, friends, Casio Outgear models can be called a kind of analogue of the advanced ProTrek direction. It’s still the same tourist watch, but cheaper. Substantially cheaper. However, you should not be under any illusion: the modest cost manifests itself in more modest characteristics. For example, OutGear almost always has plastic glass, and the strap is not made of dense polyurethane, but thin.Impact resistance is deteriorating at times [although as anyone].
Series names: SGW-600, SGW-100, SGW-500, SGW-400, SGW-300
Prices from official dealers: in Russia → / in Ukraine →
Tourist watch not only due to its appearance, but also due to its internal functions. So, OutGear can contain in its arsenal a dual sensor [eg thermometer and compass], as well as a graph of the phases of the moon or barometer / altimeter. Among the representatives of the generation, there are such categories as “watches for fishermen”, “watches for hunters”, where, depending on the season [or data on air temperature fluctuations], favorable patterns for a particular type of activity are determined.Study the detailed information directly on the store’s website under the model itself.
90,000 Nomos Club. Just a good watch |
Good day, everyone. I have never asked the owners of watches about and why they choose this or that brand. What drives them when choosing, and then makes their hearts sink in anticipation of the coveted box. But this time everything turned out somehow unexpectedly and routinely, when I received an unexpected message from the owner of this watch, where there was a short story about the choice.It turned out that everything is very simple – manual winding and the absence of a date did their job.
But let’s plunge into history a little.
Nomos cannot be called an old brand, because it was founded relatively recently, in 1991 in Glashutte, where the main German watch life lives.
The first movements for the new brand were the Peseux 7001, the basic decoration of which was done on the side by Soprod (which also produces its own movements, which are found, for example, in Steinhart).
Information about the base caliber is available here http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Peseux_7001
But for the right to write “Glashutte” under the name of the brand, as big uncles like Lange or Glashutte Original do, they had to fight for a long time – the requirements there are worse than for the Swiss Made marking.
For this, in particular, they began to heavily customize the 7001 in their production directly in Glashutte.
Gradually, it came to the fact that ETA representatives asked not to name the ETA Peseux movement, and so gradually the first Nomos Alpha movement was born – the caliber that is installed in the reviewed model.
The caliber is being produced now in-house, it differs from the 7001 already quite strongly and outwardly is close to the standards set in Glashutte – a three-quarter platinum, decorated with the so-called. Glashuttestripes (there are differences from the Geneva stripes)
The movement itself is adjustable in 6 positions and is adjusted for chronometric accuracy (although it does not receive any official certificates). By the way, my observations of the accuracy of the course fully confirm this.
The Club model is one of the less classic models of the brand, which also has a decent water resistance of 100m.On WUS I saw a photo of people calmly swimming with this watch.
There are several versions of the Club line, each in its own caliber – Club, ClubDate, ClubCampus. ClubDate, for example, is notable for the fact that Nomos built in a date complication without thickening the mechanism itself.
By default, this model is sold with a blank cover, the transparent one cost an additional 150 (or so) euros.
Now, as far as I know, Nomos manufactures all components, except for the case and the strap, in-house.The case is made somewhere in Switzerland, the strap is usually made in the US from ShellCordovan. In the photo, you will not see your own belt, as it just worn out and was replaced with another handmade belt.
But let’s have a look at the watch itself.
Frankly, this is the first model from this German manufacturer that I managed to hold in my hands. I liked the watch.
Is the 36mm diameter small or not? Everyone has their own answer to this question, their own opinion.It seemed to me personally that the watch is small, but as soon as I tried it on, the feeling of small size disappeared somewhere. Before that, I thought that watches with a diameter of 38-40 mm are quite small, but I was mistaken. However, I will make a reservation that these judgments relate directly to my wrist. Well, the thickness is only about 8.5 mm.
Traditional photo on hand.
Polished watch case. I will add to this that it seemed to me quite heavy for a watch of this format and size, but 54 grams made me believe what it seemed.There is absolutely nothing to say about the quality of the case. It’s just great. But, as you know, time spares no one, scratches on the case appear regularly during operation. This is an irreversible process.
Sapphire crystal is very slightly convex.
The balance between the color of the dial and the color of the hands seems to me just perfect.
I will show you a little closer photo.
The crown is rather large for such a small watch.On the end there is a faintly noticeable NOMOS inscription.
As mentioned above, the watch has a transparent case back through which you can see the pretty NomosAlpha caliber.
Manual winding, stop-second, small seconds, 43-hour power reserve (fully proven in practice). The accuracy of the course has remained unchanged for several years – +1 second per day, subject to the rule of the morning plant at the same time.
The workmanship of the movement is of a very decent level.Although, there are some minor flaws.
This is NomosClub. Very nice watch from the German brand. I would venture to call them a watch not for everyone. Naturally, this is not because of the price.
Love your watch.
Z. Svyatoslav the greatest gratitude for the provided watch and a brief educational program on the history of the brand.

90,000 what to look for when choosing a smartwatch
A smart watch is a modern electronic device in the form factor of a wristwatch that can be interfaced with mobile gadgets.Smart watches can record physical activity, show notifications about activity on social networks, notify about calls, text messages and important calendar events. In addition, the smart watch allows you to control music, some models even have the ability to play simple games.
Some models have already “learned” to work without being tied to a smartphone, via Wi-fi, while others are “watch phones” – smart watches with a SIM card.
Many predicted the end of the era of traditional watches with the advent of smartphones.A clock is not just a device that shows the current time. This is a fashion accessory that demonstrates the style and financial capabilities of its owner. This is what smartwatch manufacturers are playing on. They offer a traditional accessory generously flavored with the latest advances in hardware and software algorithms. The assortment of stores is rapidly expanding with new smart watches models. Smartwatches are one of the fastest evolving electronic devices today.New, modernized versions are regularly introduced to the market. How to choose a smart watch, what functions should be present in them, what to look for when choosing them? Which smart-watch to choose for a child?
How to choose a smartwatch
What does smartwatch mean in general? The literal translation from English is smart watch. This is a compact electronic device, the mandatory functionality of which is the countdown. These gadgets are made smart by special programs. The app and the ability to remotely pair with smartphones or tablets greatly expand the capabilities of smartwatches.Many manufacturers equip their gadgets with an accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS module, MP3 player and even a video camera.
And nevertheless, the simplest digital models are still in use! The SMA gadget can be safely attributed to one of these – it is a sports model, well-assembled and reliable both during training and in everyday life.
Convenient square body, simple push-button control and maximum information at minimum cost + good autonomy! You get a good gadget that can monitor your heart rate and receive notifications from your smartphone.
Digital models are the most popular and demanded, despite their obvious problems with autonomy: not every smart model holds at least a week! However, this indicator is improving when it comes to “copyright” gadgets. From this point of view, things are not bad at MyKronoz.
In many ways, the familiar design of watches – a circle – will be universal and comfortable for men and women. Despite the fact that the watch is well “equipped” with sensors, autonomy is at a decent level: the model can work for 3-4 days! ZeRound HR, by the way, was also equipped with an NFC module for contactless payments.
Another digital innovation, PowerWatch, promises to solve a radical problem with autonomy. This is literally the hit of the year – a watch that doesn’t need to be charged at all!
They “feed” on the energy generated by a person during wearing, which is quite enough for them to exclude the docking station for charging and forget about this element of the kit, as about the archaic past of a niche.
Smart watches – which to choose , and what they can
Smart watches can work offline or in conjunction with a mobile gadget.Some people think that the concept of “smart” is not quite suitable for stand-alone devices – it is more appropriate to call this type of watch electronic with extended functionality. The software content in them is most often focused on fitness statistics.
Truly “smart” watches are synchronized by mobile devices. To do this, most often use a wireless connection via the Bluetooth protocol. There are a variety of smartwatches on the market, which one is better to choose largely depends on which smartphone they will work with.Manufacturers are trying to reach the largest possible audience, so the vast majority of models are interfaced with gadgets based on the most popular operating systems – Android, Windows Phone, iOS. After synchronization, they receive information about events in the synchronized device. The user receives notifications about incoming voice calls and SMS-ka, letters that came to the e-mail, important events in the calendar. For correct operation in pairs, smart watches require the mandatory installation of a special application in a smartphone or tablet.
Now large gadget manufacturers such as LG, Huawei, Moto, Fossil are working in partnership with Google, and their watch models are based on the Android Wear OS. Apple, of course, is a serious opposition to this OS – watches of this brand are controlled by the Watch OS OS. Also, a significant share in the market is occupied by the operating system from Samsung – Tizen – on its basis branded devices of the company work.
Other manufacturers, both large (for example, Fitbit), and do not really prefer to develop branded applications for managing gadgets.
Body and design
And here we are in the store and choose the Smartwatch. What should a smartwatch look like? The appearance of the device depends solely on the individual preferences of the user. Most of the models are made in the format of mechanical wrist watches. You can buy smartwatches with a sporty twist, such as the Polar M600. Most often, such gadgets have massive cases, large symbols and wide bracelets. There are also increased characteristics of dust and moisture protection.Straps are most often made of plastic, rubber or silicone, less often of metal.
Others, on the contrary, imitate classic wrist chronometers so well that it is impossible to recognize electronic devices in them either at first or at the twenty-first glance. Runtastic analog smartwatch can be mentioned here.
Outwardly, this is an ordinary clock with arrows, however, when paired with a proprietary application, the gadget can be configured to receive notifications, as well as view activity statistics by steps, calories, distance.
Analog or hybrid smartwatches are so-called “arrowed smartwatches”. Outwardly, these are classic dials, and all smart functions are already manifested in the application. Notifications for such watches come in the form of vibration or a diode signal. The niche has become very popular with the advent of the Fossil brand, which has released an analog smart model for almost every brand in its portfolio.
Nevertheless, there is only one truly hybrid model of smart watches and belongs to the MyKronoz company: ZeTime watches can really work both as analog and digital, and the hands are literally embedded in the center of the display, which will receive digital notifications!
Smart watches differ in the size and shape of the displays.Some models have a traditional dial and a special screen for displaying notifications. Sometimes one or more LEDs perform this function. In other models, the dial is entirely occupied by the display, which can be decorated in any style. The collection of styles most often features dials in a traditional pointer format or digital work screens. When considering which smart watch to choose, it is worth remembering that they are worn on the wrist, so an unnecessarily large case will be inconvenient in daily use.The size 1.4-1.7 inches is considered universal.
Electronic display type
Smartwatch models with several types of screen resolutions were presented on the market:
– e-papier – a special type of monochrome screen that provides long battery life;
– LCD – full color screens. They are distinguished by high realism and detail of the picture, but they quickly drain the battery.
Some smartwatches have touch screens.This solution makes navigation easier, but not always convenient due to the small size of the display. Recently, such a solution has become more and more popular!
Battery performance affects device performance. The biggest problem with smartwatches is the small size of the case. It simply has nowhere to accommodate a large battery. The operating time depends on many reasons – the type of power element, its capacity, the presence of wireless modules, sensors and sensors.Some smartwatch models keep a charge for 1-2 days. They have to be recharged regularly using the original network docking stations. More expensive options work without recharging for 7-10 days. There are models of smartwatches that run on non-rechargeable batteries. Such a watch can work on one battery for six months.
Operating system and RAM size
Smart watches can be equipped with an operating system, but this is not a prerequisite. Some models, when paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth, do not have their own OS and do not support the ability to install additional applications.Others work on an adapted operating shell (usually Android, iOS). In some cases, manufacturers develop proprietary mobile operating systems, such as Samsung’s Tizen. The performance and efficient operation of a smartwatch is affected by the amount of RAM, but this indicator is not as critical as when choosing a smartphone or laptop. In general, we can say that at 512 MB the clock will work correctly and perform all the declared functions.
Basic functions available in almost all types of smartwatches:
– display of the current time, alarm clock;
– fixing, displaying and analyzing fitness statistics;
– the ability to notify about incoming calls and text messages to the paired smartphone;
– the ability to receive notifications and messages from social networks;
– receive notifications about calendar events;
– display of weather information.
Some watch models are equipped with an NFC chip, Wi-Fi module and a video camera.
Smart watch is an excellent companion for people who are fond of sports and outdoor activities. Some models have a built-in heart rate monitor and blood pressure monitor. As a standard, manufacturers equip them with the following functions:
– counting steps;
– calculation of movement speed and distance;
– calculates the number of calories burned.
It would seem, why pay for something that anyone, not even a very smart one, can do for free – an hour, two, counting steps is not so difficult. But all day, and all the next, and so every day. Unlike humans, smartwatches do not get tired, do not get lost, do not forget. They clearly record and analyze, allow you to see the process in dynamics.
Degree of protection
Most modern smartwatches are not afraid of rain or splashes when washing their hands. But keep in mind that the label “waterproof” and “waterproof” does not mean complete tightness at all.The degree of protection against water is marked with an IP code and two numbers. The larger the numbers, the better the tightness. The vast majority of smartwatches are IP68 rated. And although the manufacturers promise that the watch will retain its functionality when immersed in water to a depth of one meter for half an hour, it is still better not to tempt fate and remove the watch before swimming.
Sports smartwatches are likely to be more sealed, but there will either be few or no smart features. Still, we should separate watches for sports – here, for example, we can include Mio Alpha, and smart watches with sports design!
Smart watches for children are distinguished into a separate category
Unlike adult models, smart baby watches are primarily focused on:
– the ability for parents to control the whereabouts of the child outside the home;
– an opportunity for parents to contact the child.
But not only! For example, the VTech gadget is an “almost adult” smartwatch without parental control, designed for entertainment and reminders.
The company, by the way, specializes in the creation of “Adult children” gadgets!
Taking into account the needs of parents, manufacturers of children’s smart watches, children’s watches are equipped with a SIM card to enable parental control and communication with the child: not everyone is ready to give children a smartphone, given their active and mobile lifestyle.
With the help of the children’s watch, the parent will be aware of where the child is at a particular moment, and in which case he will be able to dial him a call or send a message. The child, for his part, can also make an emergency call to the phone to dad or mom to warn about some event.
