A bit before I started my thankfully small path to find out if I had cancer or not, 1:Face Watch reached out to me to see if I had heard about their unique watch, and wondered if I would like to receive one. They very kindly sent their black touchscreen watch to me. This is NOT a watch though. It’s an opportunity to support different causes in a unique way. This got my attention, especially during the time when I saw the bright pink 1:Face Watch that supports breast cancer.
There are nine different coloured watches, each one represents a different cause. For example the orange 1:Face watch that recently launched supports the SPCA. It’s amazing to me that something like purchasing a watch can have such a strong impact and make a difference. The purchase of 1 red watch provides emergency relief through the Red Cross for Canadians affected by disaster. The black 1:Face touchscreen watch goes towards all of the causes. Incredible!
If you know someone who is a techy they will love this watch. It took me a minute or two to figure out how to set the watch with the touchscreen, but once I knew how it was very easy to do. I really like that the time is not constantly on display, the watch is very much a statement piece. When I want to know the time, I tap on the screen and it will appear in a nice crisp white numbers.
For those who want to know the details the watch has an alloy frame, and a silicone band. The backplate is brushed steel, and the face of the watch is made of a tempered shatter proof. You can also dive up to 30 meters with the watch on, and there is a stopwatch and alarm.
The girl side of me loves the faceplate on this watch. If I’m in a pinch I can use it like a mirror to apply some lipstick, and the mom side of me loves that the faceplate is also shatter proof! My daughter loves to get her hands onto my jewellery, so knowing that it’s going to be durable against her is great. The silicone used for the watch band is nice and soft. The only bad news, is that I have lost the watch to my husband! He has called dibs on it.
If you are searching for a birthday present, or even thinking about Christmas already and you know someone who loves digital items or watches, you should consider this watch. Perhaps you are looking for a unique way to support a cause, please check out 1:Face Watch.
