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 [...]

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 [...]

I'm a big fan of Withings health and fitness gadgets. I have reviewed their wireless body scale, their wireless blood pressure monitor and their Pulse activity trackers. Their newest fitness gadget is the Activité activity tracking watch which pairs a Swiss-made movement with a fashionable design. It features a stainless steel case and a fine [...]

ihome-idl46-5

I've had my iHome docking alarm clock since the 3nd generation iPod Touch came out. I enjoyed the easy interface that iHome brought, and that it worked with my iPhone when I got one. Sadly, when they upgraded to the Lightning connector the dock no longer worked with my phone, but I had grown so [...]

watch01

I like wrist watches.  OK, I said it and that probably makes me a dinosaur.  Although I have a cell phone which I can reference for the time, to me there's nothing like the convenience of having a timepiece on my wrist, and I don't have to fish it out of my pocket to check [...]

papago-770-5

I've never been much of a fan of watches. I'd either lose them, break them, or forget to wear them. Then cell phones came along, further denying my need for a time keeping device. However, I came upon a change of heart when I started coaching tennis. The girls would ask me what time it [...]
