ferrolic-clock

The clock called Ferrolic by Dutch designer Zelf Koelman is like a lava lamp clock that does not emit light. The magnetic fluid (a black fluid with magnetic particles suspended in it) within an aluminum casing is attracted to the clock's electromagnets to form the numbers. The best part is that it comes with software that is [...]

switcheasy_blocks1

As a LEGO fan and an Apple Watch owner, I had heard about people building their own Apple Watch charging stands with LEGO blocks. When SwitchEasy came out with its Blocks Apple Watch charging stand, I jumped at the chance to take a look at it. On paper, the SwitchEasy Blocks charging stand sounds great. [...]

evarii-10

Wristwatches haven't really changed that much since they were first invented. They still consist of a single timepiece and a single band that allows you to attach the watch to your wrist. Until now, customization consisted almost solely of changing bands to give the watch a different look. But now with Evarii Modular Watches, a new Kickstarter [...]

moto360-7.0

Yesterday, I reported the news that the latest version of Android Wear will be compatible with iPhones. Based on the feedback I received, it is clear that our readers are as excited as I am that they will have more options than the Apple Watch to join the smartwatch revolution. Today, Motorola announced the availability [...]

Elliot Havok Watch review

elliotthavok-timepiece_00

What makes a great dress watch? Slim and lightweight, elegant simplicity, classic looks? I'd say all of the above. I've read that wristwatches are on the decline due to the proliferation of mobile phones with clocks which everyone seems to be carrying everywhere these days. But I happen to believe there is still a place for wristwatches [...]

Android Wear comes to iPhone

android-wear-lollipop-watchface-variety-970-80

  Google announced that as of Monday, Google’s Android Wear smart watches will now connect to Apple’s iPhones (iPhone 5 and up). This is big news for those of us who have iPhones, but who are fans of Google’s many useful tools, such as Google Calendar, Gmail, and my favorite, Google Now. While Google’s Android [...]

g-shock-g'mix

I'm a big fan of Casio's G-Shock watches; I've worn them for years and can vouch that they are some of the toughest watches in the world and packed with useful features. The latest G-Shock GB400 models include some new features that caught my eye. Bluetooth Smart enables linking between the watch and a phone for remote control [...]

CarteBlanche - 1

Oops, they did it again. The nice people at Apple, with their new products and popularity, are inspiring an entire ecosystem to sprout up around Watch accessories. We've reviewed several here, and I'm sure that trend will continue. This latest charging stand that I was sent comes from Boostcase, and is a rather formidable presence. [...]

iCleverAppleWatchStand - 13

The Apple Watch, like most of the company's earlier products, has begun to spawn a cottage industry of paraphernalia: mostly stands, cases, and  watch bands. Since the size of the charger is the same for both the 42 mm and 38 mm models, and only slightly thicker for the plastic charger versus the stainless steel [...]

spigen-apple-watch-charging-stand-1

I found the Spigen Apple Watch Charging Stand while I was digging around on Amazon for Apple Watch accessories.  Before I found this charging stand, my Watch had just been laying on my nightstand to charge at night, and I had accidentally knocked it off a couple of times because I wasn't used to the [...]

katana-watch

Tokyoflash is known for their unusual watches which require a learning curve in order to tell the time. When I saw their new Kisai Katana Link watch I was really surprised because at first glance it looks like a wristwatch with a traditional analog watch face. But upon closer inspection I discovered that the watch [...]

retro-clock

The Electrohome Retro Clock Radio is styled after the alarm clocks that our grandparents kept on their nightstands. Remember the actual bells on top that rang when the alarm went off? The Electrohome Retro Clock Radio may look like those clocks of yesteryear, but that's where the comparison ends. This clock has a digital display [...]

This is my response to John's article from yesterday. The Apple Watch has been out for 3 months now. I bought a 38mm Space Gray Apple Watch Sport at 12:07 a.m. Pacific Time on April 24, 2015. I showed up on my doorstep in Austin, TX, a week and a half later. I have worn [...]

AppleWatch-News-jpg1

First, let me get this out of the way.  I am an admitted Apple fanboy.  Although I held off on an iPhone until last December when I finally made the Android to iOS switch with an iPhone 6+ (128 GB).  My main computer now is a 2013 MacBook Pro, and I also have a 2008 [...]

withings-activite

Most activity trackers on the market right now have been designed to only track steps, calories and sleep. But if your main form of exercising is swimming, regular fitness trackers won't give you accurate and detailed info on your workouts. The Activité and Activité Pop activity trackers from Withings can now automatically recognize if a [...]

calypsocrystal-timeless-moment-watch-charging-stand-9

Well before the actual release of the Apple Watch, CalypsoCrystal added a couple of Watch accessories to their product line.  Their Timeless accessories included a beautiful leather-wrapped arc of a charging stand, which I loved at first sight.  Once I got my Apple Watch, I decided I needed a charging stand, and I was lucky [...]

acurite-clock-7

We remodeled our basement living room about 5 years ago and continue to decorate it with framed pictures and other items. One thing Jeanne and I could not find was the perfect clock. She wanted something unique and I wanted something more traditional and easy to see. Since we couldn't agree on one, we've settled [...]

ivapo-stainless-steel-watchband-apple-watch

I always want to get the newest gadgets, but I want my husband and daughter to have them, too.  That means sometimes I don't get the exact model I want, because I'm buying three devices instead of keeping the entire budget for myself.  So, I have the Apple Watch Sport with the Sport band instead [...]

starling

I used to carry a pocket watch because I like being different and they are more unique than an ordinary wristwatch. No pocket watch that I've owned or seen featured Chillovean lighting effects like these Starling watches though. Steampunk fans will love these limited edition collectible pocket watches that were invented by Frank Cohen and [...]

The Watchit! 3D from byVinzant is a specially designed car mount head unit for smartwatches like the Apple Watch. The Watchit! 3D gets its name from the fact [...]

As with any new product from Apple, a lot of third-party products have hit the market for the Apple Watch.  Because all versions of the Watch are rather expensive, many of these products have been protective equipment for Watch's screen or case.  The Bumper for Apple Watch from Actionproof is the "first bumper / shock [...]

otium-gear-1

I was a relatively early adopter of smartwatches; I owned the original Pebble smartwatch before upgrading to a Moto 360 last February. Admittedly, I was initially skeptical of their usefulness; however, my smartwatch quickly and seamlessly integrated itself into my daily routine. The ability to dismiss calls, quickly reply to text messages, and receive notifications from [...]
