Michael Bastian & HP's Sleek Smartwatch

Let's be honest, you don't really want to read an email on a 40 millimetre screen, you can't think how a map would look better on your wrist and you definitely don't want to have to recharge your watch before its clocked 24 hours. Which is why you might be interested in the smartwatch designed by Michael Bastian and HP. 

Rather than attempting to miniaturise your phone and repackage it for your wrist, the MB Chronowing looks to be an extension of your iOS or Android hardware. Rather than feeding a stream of data to the 44mm smartwatch and ruin your eyesight, the Chronowing grabs essential information that you'd only want to look at given a glance.

How many emails are waiting for your attention? Who was that whose call you had to miss during that meeting? What's the latest score in the football? Rather than having to dig out your phone in an antisocial manner, a sly button press can display calendar and message information, alongside music playback functions. And the best part is, it actually looks like a watch.

Set to arrive on 7 November in stainless steel for around £220 and in a pricer limited edition black, you'll be able to pick up a Chronowing from online retailer Gilt
