E Ink technology isn’t new, but it’s finding a home outside of the Kindles of the world with specialty iPhone cases that integrate E Ink displays into the rear of the case. InkCase is, obviously, one of those cases. Produced by Oaxis, InkCase i6 adds a 4.3″ E Ink display to the rear of a case that also protects your phone. Once you connect it via Bluetooth, you can get push notifications, weather updates, contacts and even e-mail without ever engaging the full-color display. One of the biggest benefits of E Ink has always been the low light readability and power consumption, so you can also use inkCase to read a book or just put a cool black and white picture on the back of your case. The entire system only adds 4.2mm—about two credit cards—to your phone, so it’s not much more than a standard case.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. 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.
