The EVR1 Signature Universal Watch. EVR1 is a really neat company.  Every one of their products has a micro sdhc storage chip that contains the EVR1 Canon (a.k.a. Ultimate Codex of Wisdom).  Seriously the “EVR1 Canon” according to EVR1 is a “Curated selection of humanity’s greatest written works, spanning cultrure, wisdom, spirit and practical know-how.” It can be read/updated/customized on any android phone, pc or mac.  I went ahead and listed the contents of the Canon, to see it simply click the name below to expand it.
