Like most connected people, most of us at Dvice juggle a bunch of different gadgets to get us through the day. That's fine if you're a juggler, but what if you could consolidate all of that information in one single device in your wrist? That's the idea behind the HP MetaWatch from Fossil.
Gloat all you want with your MacBook Pro or 12 hour and up battery netbook, but neither of them can hold a candle to HP's new EliteBook laptops and its record-setting battery life — 32 hours on a single charge. Top that Apple!

The company partnered with designer Diane Von Furstenberg to introduce interactive touchpanels at her gallery in New York to kick off Fashion Week. And they're actually kind of cool.
