I really like the Apple Watch. Or at least the idea of the Apple Watch. But for all its amazing-seeming functionality, it just doesn't seem like it would be tough enough for me. I'd want to wear it 24/7 and for the activities that I engage in, it would need to be pretty durable. The folks… Read More

I recently reviewed a unit that I've been using for almost a year to recharge my Apple Watch on the go - the Pod from Nomad. This week, though, I was sent a test unit of a similar device that not only does what the Pod does, but also fixes the few qualms I had… Read More

One of the most interesting innovations that the Apple Watch brought, in my book, is the method for attaching bands to the main unit. Rather than loop materials through a spring-loaded pin inserted into the ears of the watch body, you simply slide the band into place and it locks there. To remove it, there… Read More

About a year ago, Nomad, those folks who understand wandering Gadgeteers and their need for on-the-go charging, released a product called the Pod for Apple Watch.

I don't have an Apple Watch. It's not that I don't want one, mind you. It's just that for years I've been wearing watches like G-Shocks that are water-, dirt-, and shock-resistant---really tough watches. And as much as I'd like to have an Apple Watch to pair with my iPhone, I just don't see the… Read More

Julie knows how much I love gadgets - and gadgets for my gadgets.  When Belkin offered The Gadgeteer their new Valet Charge Dock for Apple Watch + iPhone for review, Julie asked if I'd be interested in giving it a try.  I loved the idea of needing only one wall outlet to charge both my… Read More

Face it, if you're using an Apple Watch, you're going to need to charge it on a regular basis. As in daily. And, like many other devices, most of us want to charge our watches where we want, not "have to" go to a certain location. To facilitate charging on the go, the folks at… Read More

The Apple Watch Sport doesn't come with a charging case or dock, just a charging cable.  You'll either have to charge your Watch as it lays on a table, putting it at risk of not being seen when you drop something else on the table, or you'll have to purchase a third-party charging stand of… Read More
