Virtual reality has been treading water for a long time now. There have been some releases and announcements, but for the most part, the water’s been stagnant. That all may finally change though. Today at Google’s announcement, they revealed Daydream, a VR platform designed with immersive experience and mobile technology in mind. Hundreds of apps and games are incoming, including Harry Potter games, Hulu programming, YouTube channels, and Street View tours. Google’s throwing a ton of weight behind VR technology, so expect some significant advancements to come out of this announcement. But tech’s not the only aspect to this announcement. They also showcased their VR headset, called the Daydream View. It’s a significantly different approach, emphasizing comfortable fabrics over hard plastics and further reducing the distance between the average consumer and VR technology. And the tech’s not going to be proprietary. Other phone manufacturers and tech developers will have access to the Daydream platform, making it even more accessible. Overall, we’re excited. It’s about time VR got some energy back.

Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
