<![CDATA[Brands That Changed Your Life for the Better]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/brands-that-changed-your-life-for-the-better/loganrapp
It may sound weird to say that a brand or a company has had a profound impact on your life, but for many, it's absolutely true. Over the years, private companies have created products that deeply change the way we navigate through and enjoy life. From actual physical things to digital products, these companies have found the sweet spot and have figured out how to actually improve our lives. These are all companies that people associate with helpfulness and efficiency, rather than the negative connotations that corporations sometimes come with. This list seeks to rank the most loved brands - those that are improving our lives and changing the world. 

When Apple debuted the iPhone and the concept of a "convergence device," it changed the way we looked at our phones. Now, the actual phone portion of it is almost secondary to everything else a smartphone can do. Google and Facebook have completely changed the way we find things, the way we interact with people, and they way we consume media. Amazon has definitely changed the way that we shop. This is only a fraction of the list, and yet we already know immediately that these brands have changed the way we live on a daily basis. 

So take a look at this list of beloved brands and vote up the ones YOU love the most! Has IKEA made your apartment a much more inviting home? Has Netflix disrupted the way you watch TV or movies? Did LEGO, Mattel, and Nintendo improve your childhood? Have you benefitted from Planned Parenthood's services in a pinch or when you were between healthcare plans? Let the world know by voting up the brands that have changed your life for the better!

<![CDATA[The Best Men's Watch Brands]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-men-and-_39_s-watch-brands/werner-brandes
Watches can function as a statement piece, a show of wealth, a pedometer, or simply as a timepiece. The best watch brands are popular with men everywhere, helping them keep the time and look stylish. Though watches are not as popular as they once were, a watch is more of a fashion statement than it used to be. There are many name brand watches that are still widely worn and plenty of watch manufacturers designing great men's watches.

The most inexpensive and medium-priced watches are used mainly for timekeeping and are electronic watches with quartz movements. Expensive collectible watches, valued more for their workmanship and aesthetic appeal than for simple timekeeping, often have purely mechanical movements and are powered by springs, even though they are less accurate than the more affordable quartz movements watches. In addition to the time, the most popular men's watches often display the day, date, month, and year. Some watches for men provide additional time-related features, such as timers, chronographs, alarm functions, GPS, and heart monitoring.
