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…

Suunto Elementum Terra All Black Watch Review

on Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

The All Black is ‘just…’ a new color scheme in the existing Sunnto Elementum Terra line. The all-black casing and negative display make for a stealthy (Stargate ;)) look, while retaining all the functionality of the Terra clan. I have always been tempted by Suunto’s luxury line of Elementum Terra watches but to be honestRead More…

Phosphor Appear Black Crystal Watch with Black Gloss Leather Strap Review

on Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I really like watches, especially unusual ones.  The Phosphor Appear Black Crystal Watch with Black Gloss Leather Strap is certainly unusual.  It reminds me of eInk screens in a way.  Instead of using LEDs to show the time, these watches turn over crystals to show a clear side or a colored side to create theRead More…

Zazoo Photo Clock Review

By: Karen Nelson
on Friday, November 25th, 2011

I am guessing pretty almost every parent has had a moment where your little one has decided to wake just at the sight of sunlight in the morning, ready to take on the day hours before you would like him or her up.  Zazoo Kids has created the Zazoo Photo Clock to help alleviate someRead More…

Quad Mountain Ultimate One Watchband for iPod nano Review

on Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Most of the watchband cases for the iPod nano have one thing in common – some part of the iPod comes into contact with your skin.  People who wear their iPods while exercising or working intensely find it eventually suffers damage from coming into contact with sweat.  Quad Mountain has developed a watchband for theRead More…

SpikenzieLabs Solder:Time Watch Kit Review

By: Mark Adkins
on Thursday, August 25th, 2011

I enjoy making stuff, and I love electronics, so I generally really like electronics kit projects. The SpikenzieLabs Solder:Time Watch Kit seems like a great option for someone like me. This is actually a hackable watch- they provide the source code and other info, as well as convenient pads on the circuit board to tap into. TheRead More…

Timex Ironman Global Trainer w/GPS Technology Review

on Sunday, August 7th, 2011

In my efforts to prepare for my wife’s 40th birthday wish of us running the DisneyWorld Marathon in January 2012, not only have I been training but looking for tech gadgets to help me do so more effectively and efficiently. The first in this gadget-fitness series was the Sennheiser/Adidas MX 680i Sports earbuds which continueRead More…

Snugg Luxury Wrist Strap for Apple iPod nano Review

on Monday, June 13th, 2011

There are a multitude of watchband straps for the 6th generation Apple iPod nano, and I’ve already reviewed a couple.  Each strap is a little different from the others, and it may require some looking to find exactly the one you’ll like best.  Some lend themselves more to using them as a sports strap whileRead More…

4iConcepts 4iTorq Metal Bracelet for iPod nano Review

on Sunday, May 8th, 2011

There have been a multitude of companies introducing bands to turn the iPod nano into a wristwatch, and The Gadgeteer has reviewed some of them.  The 4iTorq band from 4iConcepts differs from the pack because it’s a metal band instead of the typical cloth, plastic, or leather strap.  Let’s give it a closer look. Note: Read More…

HEX Watch Band for iPod nano Gen 6 Review

on Monday, May 2nd, 2011

When the sixth generation of the iPod nano was released in the fall of 2010, Steve Jobs joked that it was so small that it could be worn as a watch.  Apparently dozens of companies decided to create watchbands that could be used to turn the nano into a watch – albeit a rather largeRead More…

on Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

With the abundance of table radio/iPod docks on the market, it ca be overwhelming in the quest to find out which one will fit your needs. Cambridge Soundworks makes a very impressive bid with the i525 AM/FM Table Radio with iPod Dock. This high-end speaker is impressive from the moment an iPod or iPhone isRead More…

iWatchz Nanoclipz iPod nano Watch Band Review

on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I love it when people take a product and make it do things that it wasn’t originally intended to do. For example, take the latest Apple iPod nano. It’s a music player, but as soon as it came out, people started using it as a watch. I love it! One such company that is helping to makeRead More…

Bedol Water Clock With Alarm Review

on Friday, September 3rd, 2010

I’ve seen lots of clocks in my day – even a clock that ran on power it somehow got from a raw potato.  Bedol has an alarm clock that runs on tap water.  You don’t have to put anything in the water – no salts or anything – just tap water.  It sounds like a funRead More…

Moshi Voice Control Digital Clock Radio Review

on Monday, August 30th, 2010

Last Winter I had reviewed the Moshi Voice Control Alarm Clock and have been using it ever since. I’ve come to rely on the ability to control my alarm clock with my voice. It’s no longer just a novelty for me. That’s why I was super excited when I learned that Moshi was offering aRead More…

TokyoFlash Kisai Round Trip Review

on Sunday, July 25th, 2010

Before the invention of the wrist-watch, there was the pocket-watch.  Developed in the 16th century, the pocket-watch was the main portable way of telling time.  It was only after World War I that wrist-watches became popular after the design of trench-watches for the military.  Now in the 21st century, we can tell time in soRead More…

By: Andy Simmons
on Friday, July 16th, 2010

At one point or another, we all find ourselves in a situation where it would be beneficial to be a fly on the wall; whether it’s to figure out who it is that keeps stealing Netflix envelopes out of your mailbox, to keep an eye on the babysitter, or to reveal an even more unfortunateRead More…

Nifty Thrifty Cell Phone Watch Review

By: cobinrox
on Monday, June 21st, 2010

The Thrifty Cell Phone watch ($80 and the price keeps dropping) is one of the first viable (i.e. affordable, portable) cell phone watches I’d seen in a while.  While not for everyone, the concept offers an easy way to carry a phone without really carrying it.  It’s a nifty idea but is not something forRead More…

By: cobinrox
on Monday, June 14th, 2010

If you have a need to monitor the activities of your nanny, house sitter, house cleaner, or other part-time guests and need a no-brainer contraption to do so, the motion-activated SD-V03 Color Spy Camera from Spy Gadgets can do the duty.  While I don’t have a need to monitor my kids’ nanny, I do haveRead More…

iHome iA5 App Enhanced Alarm Clock Review

on Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Alarm clocks designed around the iPhone / iPod are not something new. But an alarm clock like the iHome iA5 App Enhanced Clock that can be completely controlled by an iPhone or iPod is new. You can use this device as a speaker and as an alarm clock with social networking features. Let’s take aRead More…

SpecialOPS Cell Phone Watch Review

on Monday, March 29th, 2010

Remember the days of mobile phones that looked like you were carrying around a brick with a whip antenna sticking out of the top? Sadly, I do…. Remember day dreaming that it would be great having a watch that can communicate with others like James Bond or even Dick Tracy did back in the day?Read More…

Solar Clock Review

on Saturday, March 27th, 2010

I really like clocks and watches – perhaps you’ve noticed I’ve done quite a few news posts about them.  I have several clocks around the house, and many of them aren’t working.  Most of the clocks I have are battery operated, and I tend to forget to put new batteries in them.  When Julie offeredRead More…

Phosphor E-Ink Digital Hour Clock Watch Review

on Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Last year I reviewed Phosphor’s E-Ink Ana-Digi Watch.  It was a nice and simplistic functioning watch with an integrated E-Ink based display face similar to many eBook readers, qualifying it as a semi-techie gadget and worthy of a review. At the time, I thought Phosphor was just scratching the surface of what this kind ofRead More…

Moshi Voice Control Alarm Clock Review

on Monday, November 16th, 2009

Even though I hate getting up in the mornings to get ready for work, I have a thing for alarm clocks. It’s not that I enjoy hearing them go off in the morning as much as I just like finding clocks with cool and unique features to make the early morning wake ups a bitRead More…
