MOVADO MEETS HP


Well a while back we heard that HP had Engineered a watch with Movado(Not the singer).

Movado has been Synonymous with artistry, innovation and craftsmanship, Movado has been dedicated to pushing the boundaries of modern design and elevating the art of fine watchmaking to a fine art form since its founding in Switzerland in 1881.

According to HP,the Engineered by HP means that its  is infusing innovative materials, design and custom technology into the style of the devices you love, to make them more connected and responsive to the way you live.The Watch Works with both iOS (8+) and Android (4.4+). Exceptional performance with up to one week of battery life for smart functions. A beautiful water-resistant watch that’s always on.

Well now they have two designs out,namely t the MOVADO BOLD MOTION BLACK/STRAP and    shown Below.

HOW TO OPERATE THE WATCH

The Movado BOLD Motion has a button (1) on the left side of the case that controls the watch functions. Press it once to change the watch view. The views display in the following order: analog, progress tracker status, digital battery status, Bluetooth status. Analog view is displayed by default, and the watch returns to analog view after five seconds of inactivity.

The crown (2) is located on the right side of the case and is used only to set the time.

SETTING THE TIME

  • Gently pull the crown button on the Right hand side out to position (2); the seconds hand stops moving.
  • 2.Rotate the crown in either direction to move the hour and minute hands to the desired time.
  • 3.Push the crown back into position (1); the seconds hand restarts.

Notifications alerts working  by flashing the  glowing Ring found at the top of Both watches.You will get notfication like

  • Calendar Reminders
  • Priority Calls and Texts
  • Active Goals i.e daily step over a week or Months.

The Watch on the Left features;

  • Ceramic Bead Blasted Black Ion-Plated Case
  • Transparent Reflector w/Matte Ring
  • Transparent matte Dot Ring
  • Polished Black Ion-Plated Bezel
  • Rhonda 763 analog movement
  • Matte Black Medical Grade Silicone strap
  • Includes custom USB charger

The Watch on the Right Features;

  • Ceramic Bead Blasted Stainless Steel Case
  • Transparent Reflector w/LUMI Color Ring
  • Transparent Dot Ring with LUMI
  • Polished Black Ion-Plated Bezel
  • Rhonda 763 analog movement
  • Matte Black Medical Grade Silicone strap
  • Includes custom USB charger

For the folks who want technical details these are listed below,Sorry ladies seems that there is not a Women’s Version yet:

movado details.

The Movado Watch does contain   two batteries. One battery controls the digital functions of the watch and can be recharged. The other battery controls the analog functions of the watch and is not rechargeable,which is a bummer.The  Replacement of either battery—for the analog or the digital functions—requires service from a Movado Authorized Service Center. For locations, visitwww.mgiservice.com/movado.  Before you set up the watch, charge it for at least two hours. When the battery that controls digital functions is fully charged, it should last five to seven days with minimal use.That is  amazing but the use of minimal use is always relative  to each user and i always take it with a grain of Salt.I do not have a watch to test so cannot give you an accurate answer.

The Final Piece is the BOLD App(currently at version 1.1) that you download either from Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store.Movado states that should work on devices with 4.4 and upwards or IOS 8 or higher.

The custom USB Charger prices at 19.95 USD  which is cheap considering that Both Watches are currently   Priced at 695 USD,which in my opinion is going to have a hard time selling on the market  when the Huawei Watch Black stainless steel goes for 449 USD currently and have Proper Smart Watches retailing for about 150.00 USD.

Warranty is a limited 2 Year warranty,that anyone ought to read if and when you decide to Purchase one.

What Does Microsoft Smell Like?


Well i imagine that it would smell like Crisp 100 Dollar Bills…i mean they screwed us a couple of years back(remember ME and VISTA) but that another story for another day.

Unless you have been living under a rock then Windows 10 is the upgrade from windows 8.1 and the last Windows that is being released and  is coming this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be served in the  Flavors that were announced are as Follows:

1.Windows 10 Home

This Version is basically the version that you would find in a consumer version aka home setting.Also inluded in this Package will be Cortana aka the world’s most personal digital assistant(hmm not entirely convinced).

2.Windows 10 Mobile

This is the version that is applicable to Mobile Devices.In addition its would  enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen.(Cool !!!)

3.Windows 10 Pro

This is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1’s and could be better suited to a small Business type setting.It also adds Windows for Business and as i understand this including enterprise-grade security, identity and information protection features, reducing complexity and providing a better experience for the modern needs of business. We’ve simplified management and deployment to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or 8 that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete. We’re also providing businesses with more choice in how quickly they adopt the latest innovations, and are delivering continued improvements based on customer feedback.

4.Windows 10 Enterprise

Geared to Medium and large enterprises and would in theory  support the broadest range of options for operating system deployment and comprehensive device and app management.

5.Windows 10 Education

This edition will be available through academic Volume Licensing, and there will be paths for schools and students using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro devices to upgrade to Windows 10 Education.Hmm sounds kind of luckluster and why would i want a Student version if i could get the Full Version?? Now if these is going to be a Discounted Version for student then it would make sense,but at What Price?

6.Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise

Apparently this is geared to business customers on smartphones and small tablets.So what is the difference between this and Windows 10 Mobile edition?Perhaps it also brings greater level of security and mobile device management than Windows 10 Mobile and is flexible when it comes to updating employee mobile devices.

7.Windows 10 IoT(Internet of Things) Core

This is an interesting Edition(flavor) it supports small footprint, low cost devices like gateways.Is this a signal that Microsoft is finally embracing the Internet of Things(IoT).Microsoft has a Website dedicated to the IoT as well please check it out.

NOTE TO ALL USERS

Free upgrades will be available for Windows 7, 8.1 and even Windows Phone 8.1 users for a full year.According to Terry Mason he stated that While our free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 will not apply to Non-Genuine Windows devices, and as we’ve  always done, we will continue to offer Windows 10 to customers running devices in a Non-Genuine state.He went on to stay that When we can’t verify that Windows is properly installed, licensed, and not tampered with, we create a desktop watermark to notify the user. If you ever encounter this watermark on a new machine, I encourage you to return the device immediately to the retailer from whom you purchased it and request a Genuine Windows device. Non-Genuine Windows has a high risk of malware, fraud, public exposure of your personal information, and a higher risk for poor performance or feature malfunctions. Non-Genuine Windows is not supported by Microsoft or a trusted partner.

WHO….ARE…..WE!!!


This is a Short Poem that came to me one Day 4 years ago!!! and i forgot to Publish it.I am by no means a poet but an attempt to Voice My frustration at the World we live in as Shown Below!!!

Who are we when we ignore poverty?
Who are we when we isolate the poor?
Who are we when we practice unfairness?
Who are we when money supersedes morality?
Who are we not to care…I ask.
