Meet A New Kind Of Luxe Apple Watch That Has The Grandeur Of Royalties

Luxe up Apple Watch or any type of gadgets is not new, but I have to say what Russian luxe customizer, Aurum Edition, did is pretty mind-blowing. Everyone knows how to coat an Apple Watch with gold, or any precious metal, but Aurum Edition does more than mere coating it to 8 microns thick; it has an intricate engraving in form of floral pattern that extrude of sense of royalty. At least, that’s my first impression. TBH, I have never heard of Aurum Edition until I saw a review of its Monarch Counsel Apple Watch and it was a love at first sight.

Huawei Unveiled Huawei Watch GT And Huawei Band 3 Pro

Before Samsung and LG, Huawei was already making smartwatch that actually looks good, and the new Huawei Watch GT is no exception this time. The design itself pretty much speaks for itself, though it is nothing radical. Anywho, perhaps more importantly to me is, it is not small. The watch has a quite sizeable case of 46.5 mm and while so, it is does not look rough – thanks in part to the 10.6 mm thickness. And it weighs mere 46g without strap.
