Do you want a carbon fiber watch, but don’t want to spend a ton of cash to get one, well, the Ventus Black Kite on kickstarter may be just the ticket. I covered the brand previously with the Caspian models, which were very successful and well received, with the exception of some issues with the lume. With carbon fiber, you can layer the material or you can shred it, melt it and mold it.

Whether they realize it or not, everyone that wears a watch is an EDCer. Having something that can easily tell you the time has been an essential tool for centuries, and new technology allows our watches to do more than ever before. The Timex Metropolitan+ not only tells time, but also tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned. Activity information is available at a glance thanks to a fourth hand that shows how close you are to completing your goals. Unlike other trackers on the market, Timex used an analog design that doesn’t emphasize the fitness features of the watch. A 42mm brass casing rounds out the classic aesthetic, along with a replaceable leather watch band. The Metropolitan+ also features a backlight and water resistance for continuous use in less than ideal conditions. If you’re looking to keep track of your time as well as your fitness, check out the Metropolitan+ at the link below.
