iHome iDL46 Dual Charging Stereo FM Clock Radio with Lightning Dock and USB Charge/Play review

By: Ryan Chapman
on Monday, June 16th, 2014

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 soRead More…

Citizen Eco-Drive Military Chronograph review

on Friday, May 16th, 2014

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 checkRead More…

Papago GoWatch 770 review

By: Ryan Chapman
on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

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 itRead More…

Adidas miCoach SMART RUN watch review

on Friday, April 4th, 2014

Winter is nearly over and it is time to get mentally prepared/excited for getting outside and exercising. For me that means tennis and running.

Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch review

on Sunday, January 19th, 2014

When the folks at Verizon asked me if I’d like to try out the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, I had to take a minute to make my decision. Truth be told, it’s been 10 years since I was excited about a watch. That was back in 2004 when Microsoft SPOT watches were popular. I wantedRead More…

Spikenzie Labs Solder:Time Desk Clock review

on Sunday, December 1st, 2013

I am a huge fan of the DIY/maker movement that has come up recently.  Every year since 2010, my significant other and I enjoy going to Maker Faire in Queens, NY.  It sparks my interest in what people create and hack, and gives me ideas of my own.  There are many vendors that show offRead More…

SYNC Burn Fitness Band activity tracker review

on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

I had a strange feeling of déjà vu when I pulled the SYNC Burn Fitness Band activity tracker out of its packaging a few days ago. I quickly realized it was almost an exact replica of the Smart Health LifeTrak Core C200 activity tracker that I reviewed back in June. Are they exactly the sameRead More…

Casio G-Shock G-Aviation Mutli-Mission Combi (MMC) watch review

By: Paul Grunwald
on Sunday, February 17th, 2013

After a long stretch of wearing mechanical, self-winding watches, I got the urge for a state-of-the-art timepiece.  An international trip where I needed to keep track of multiple time-zones was the final straw.  After a lot of research and window shopping, I decided on the Casio G-Shock G-Aviation Mutli-Mission Combi (MMC), the GW3500B-1A (#5173).

By: Elizabeth Daugherty
on Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

SleepTracker Elite is the wear-at-night wristwatch that can monitor your sleep movements and help you ascertain how well or poorly you’re sleeping at night.  Time Magazine calls it the Invention of the Year.  I call it an interesting way to figure out why I’m such a grouch in the morning.  Simply put, it’s a wristRead More…

on Monday, March 12th, 2012

Once upon a time, a locomotive train ran through my son’s bedroom and he didn’t wake up.  Well, maybe not.  But if a train ever did run through his room he wouldn’t wake up.  Perhaps you have a family member who would fall into that category because they sleep so hard.  We have tried aRead More…

Modify Watches Review

on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

I still wear a wristwatch, but I’m part of a dying breed.  News articles suggest that the current generation has turned its back on the wearable timepiece in favor  of checking the time on a cellphone.  Modify Watches is offering wristwatches that are more a fashion statement than for the telling of time.  With multiple facesRead More…
