h-tang

Most smartwatches on the market are chunky, bulky and definitely not feminine. Enter the H.Tang smartwatch, which is currently seeking funding through Pozible.com. This smartwatch looks more like a fancy bracelet than a watch that can track your activity, calorie burn, display the weather and notify you when you have an incoming call or text [...]

iampuls

will.i.am (I find it really annoying to type his name that way) is a well known musician who makes top selling music with his band the Black Eyed Peas, but is he the new leader of what he calls fashionology with his new i.amPULS cuff? Notice I didn't call it a smartwatch. He doesn't want [...]

Truffol-Strap-01

The Pebble has been one of the original smart watches to kickstart (pun intended) the smart watch revolution.  I backed the KickStarter campaign and have really enjoyed using it for these last couple of years, but boy, is the plastic wristband less than stylish! Luckily, the watchband can be switched out with various bands of your own [...]

apple-watch

You really have to give Apple a lot of credit when it comes to putting on a new product announcement event. They are definitely the masters of hype and showmanship. Even though I say I don't care about the iPhone anymore, I still get excited just like the rest of the planet to hear about [...]

martian-watches-notifier-8

  Last year, I reviewed the Martian Watches G2G smart watch, and I loved it.  Not only did that watch display information about incoming calls, emails, text messages, and other notifications, it had a Bluetooth speakerphone built in.  I loved the vintage styling of the G2G, and I loved that I could replace the watch [...]

tokyoflash-kisai-radioactive-watch-2

The face of the new Kisai Radioactive watch from Tokyoflash Japan looks like it could be the monitor display on a nuclear reactor.  The lights flash to display the time, and an animation mode will look like a constantly changing status display (can be turned off).  The case and band are made of brushed stainless steel, [...]

tokyoflash-kisai-kaidoku-wood-2

Instead of interesting graphical displays, the latest Tokyoflash watch uses a word matrix to tell you the time or date.  The words needed to display the information flash on the face of the Kisai Kaidoku Wood watch, so you don't have to learn to decode a pattern to tell the time.  As a matter of [...]

unnamed

Smartwatches have been a dream of technophiles since the Dick Tracy days.  While they have not yet reached the dream of the standalone phone, what they can do while partnered with a smartphone far outstrips anything Tracy's wrist gear aspired to.  Hot on the heels of Samsung's Tizen-powered Gear 2 watch, the Gear Live watch [...]
