Withings Smart Blood Pressure Monitor (for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch)

81S2Pew7dpL._SL1500_

Withings Smart Blood Pressure Monitor (for iPhone, iPad and Touch)

1. It’s super easy to set up! I pulled it out of the box, connected it to my iPad with the cable that is attached to the monitor, and it was all ready to go! Three minutes or less! Since I had already configured my scale, it immediately recognized who I was and was ready to go.

2. You can configure your blood pressure monitor for more than one person, so I set my husband up, too. A simple tap on user icon changes the user.

3. You can configure the monitor to take your blood pressure one time or take it three times and average the results. (I like this because I have a phobia to blood pressure cuffs and always read high the first time.)

4. The results were accurate compared to a blood pressure monitor I own that was recommended to me by my doctor.

5. My iPad and iPhone keeps track of my daily progress – weight, fat, and lean with the Withings scale and blood pressure with the Withings monitor. You can even track results both in the morning and evening. The results can be read as a listing or as a graph.

6. It stores neatly in a small box.

81JZFlM0pNL._SL1500_Stuhrling Original’s Special Reserve collection was created to honor the timepieces we’ve produced that deserve extra attention. Some of our finest and most well known watches can be found here, and this is especially true when you’re talking about the Old World Treasure Series. We’ve included horologic wonders here that shock and amaze from the moment you first set eyes on them with full intention on keeping your attention for years to come. Here is the latest addition to the series: the Emperor’s Grandeur.

True to its name, the Grandeur makes an exceptionally grand impression; this watch doesn’t just feature one or two details that make it stand out. The entire piece as a whole is bold, imposing, beautiful, and has a commanding presence that can’t be found anywhere else. A spectacular achievement of craftsmanship, the Grandeur bears a few similarities to its predecessor, the Emperor, but this timepiece is larger by 8mm, bringing the case size to 50mm. Whereas the Emperor features an open heart complication that displays the balance wheel, the Grandeur is completely skeletal, and on top of that, it is a pure mechanical watch, the way watches were made over two hundred years ago. The movement, ST-91011 caliber, was tested and certified by our highly trained and certified watch makers has 22-jewels and powers the balance wheel at 21,600 vibrations per hour. On top of that, the Emperor’s Grandeur has an amazing 60 hour power reserve. That’s five days on a pure mechanical movement.

The massive case was blanked from solid bars of 316L surgical grade stainless steel, and along with our very own Krysterna crystals, this handsome timepiece is rugged and well protected in form and stature. Equipped with an alligator embossed genuine leather strap, strapping on the Emperor’s Grandeur will give you a commanding presence that cannot be ignored.

81UFhyQD2ML._SL1500_The Winchester Family is part of the Classic Collection, timepieces inspired by the classic era of watchmaking. Members of this family feature skeletonized dials that boldly display the mechanical and automatic movements.

Summary of Features

• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Automatic Movement

Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.

Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They’re considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).

• Complications: Classic Three Hand Movement
• Dial: Inner Ring with Embossed Markers
• Hands: Alpha-Style Hands

711MraX88mL._SL1500_Twin alien dials make the Android Alien Blue Dial Watch as unique and stylish as a modern watch can get. Identical dials tell time in two different time zones and are fashioned to look like blue eyes with white sliver indices to mark the hours. This timepiece features Seiko PC11 quartz movement to keep time. The bezels are silver-tone brass steel and the polished case completes the futuristic look of this timepiece. Two polished plates connect the case with the silver-tone bracelet band that secures around your wrist with a fold-over clasp with safety. The watch is presented with a black gift box and is splash water resistant.

Twin Seiko PC11 quartz movements power this unique looking (alien inspired), dual time watch. It features blue colored dials on the left and the right. Both dials feature white hour and minute hands with a white second hand. A stainless steel bracelet is attached to a stainless steel case with a crown on both sides for setting the time. The nicely fitted bracelet comes with a fold over, double security clasp. Domed mineral crystals protect both dials. The Alien’s futuristic styling made it the perfect timepiece for actor Christian Bale in the 2003 Sci Fi film “Equilibrium”.
