brando-watchlighters

If you have been bummed about the fact that the Apple Watch won't have all the cool features and sensors that were originally promised, here are two watches that I guarantee will turn heads when you use them. These watches have built in lighters. Yes, I know it sounds a bit scary to have a [...]

Seems like everyone is getting into the fitness band market these days and as a runner, I find them nice enough but limited as a 'get in shape/get off your butt' tool in many respects. To bridge this gap between fitness and training, the engineers at Polar have created a hybrid device designed to, not only track your [...]

cathode-corner-nixie-watch-2

Steve Wozniak doesn't wear an Apple Watch or any other kind of smart watch.  The Woz wears a Nixie Watch.  We've shown you clocks made with Nixie tubes before, but who would have thought that the tubes came small enough to use in a watch?  The watch only has room for two tubes, so it [...]

orbit-clock-2

This clock is designed to look like three planets orbiting a sun in a tiny solar system; it reminds me of the Emerald Observatory app for iPad that I wrote about years ago.  The clock face is rubberized, so it won't scuff as the planets move around to show the time.  The planets look like [...]

elliothavok-havokwatch

I'm a fan of watches, and of the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Over the past several years, there have been many great-looking watches on Kickstarter, from burly dive watches to complex smartwatches. Now Elliot Havok, who has run several successful Kickstarter campaigns including the Quarter Century Belt and three versions of the Dash Wallet, have launched their Havok [...]

You have the perfect watch, but what about the perfect watchband? The folks at Leatherman have thought of this and have come up with the new Leatherman Tread. The idea came from Ben Rivera (President of Leatherman) when he was stopped at Disneyland security for carrying his Skeletool. The Tread is designed to be worn [...]

Swiss Legend watch review

swisslegend-1

In today's world, our personal technologies are not only tools to help us survive modern life but in many places status symbols and fashion statements as well. Long before computers, laptops, smartphones, and tablets, a person's wristwatch told much about who they were and where they came from. There are still people who wear watches for status, fashion [...]

LG G Watch review

lg-g-26

Before the holidays Verizon was nice enough to send me the LG G Android Wear-based watch to test drive. It seems like I'm always excited about wrist worn gadgets until I actually strap them to my wrist. Once I do, I quickly tire of them. I was hoping the LG G Watch would buck that trend. [...]

ScoreBand-1

I am a golfer, at one time I could be called an avid golfer playing two, three or even four times a week. Although golf is a great way to free your mind, with all the tranquility I often find my mind wandering on the course. This leads me to forget how many shots I [...]

Being able to read incoming SMS messages on your Google Android Wear smartwatch comes in handy when your phone is in your bag or pocket. But if you want to send a quick reply through the watch, your only option has been to have your dictated voice message converted into text. Some people don't like to [...]
