How many of you wake to sounds from your smartphone, charging on or near your bed? How many of you still have a clock in your bedroom for timekeeping (not for decoration)? These two questions will determine your interest in the latest gadget to cross my review desk: the Sandman Alarm Clock. Note: Photos may… Read More

This projection alarm clock is pretty cool. It has a lot of features most radio alarm clocks have, and a few that are not so common. My favorite function on this clock, of course, is the ability to project the time onto the ceiling. I love this because I always sleep on my back, and… Read More

I really like the Apple Watch. Or at least the idea of the Apple Watch. But for all its amazing-seeming functionality, it just doesn't seem like it would be tough enough for me. I'd want to wear it 24/7 and for the activities that I engage in, it would need to be pretty durable. The folks… Read More

The best thing about a wrist watch is that they can tell you the time whenever you look at your wrist. But the worst thing about most watches is that they run on batteries and batteries need replacing or recharging. I say "most" watches run on batteries because not all of them do. Today I… Read More

Many years ago I created my own "wake up light" by setting up a timer to a lamp next to my bed.  It was clumsy and blasted full light in the morning.  Now there's a more refined way to achieve the same results with the IPEAK wake up light. I noticed the box was unbranded… Read More

We've shown you several Nixie tube clocks, chess sets, and thermometers over the years, but they all were steampunk in style.  Many of them were also kits that you needed to assemble yourself.  ThinkGeek has two Nixie tube clocks from Nuvitron that don't require assembly, and they aren't steampunk.  Both clocks use new old-stock tubes… Read More

I recently reviewed a unit that I've been using for almost a year to recharge my Apple Watch on the go - the Pod from Nomad. This week, though, I was sent a test unit of a similar device that not only does what the Pod does, but also fixes the few qualms I had… Read More

Most smartwatches look like smartwatches. But the SKAGEN Hagen Connected Hybrid Smartwatch looks more like a classic analog watch and as far as I'm concerned, that's not a bad thing. SKAGEN's watches are available with four traditional analog style watch faces, 20mm wristband styles, and have digital features that include: Automatic date and time adjustment… Read More
