h-tang

Most smartwatches on the market are chunky, bulky and definitely not feminine. Enter the H.Tang smartwatch, which is currently seeking funding through Pozible.com. This smartwatch looks more like a fancy bracelet than a watch that can track your activity, calorie burn, display the weather and notify you when you have an incoming call or text [...]

will.i.am (I find it really annoying to type his name that way) is a well known musician who makes top selling music with his band the Black Eyed Peas, but is he the new leader of what he calls fashionology with his new i.amPULS cuff? Notice I didn't call it a smartwatch. He doesn't want [...]

Truffol-Strap-01

The Pebble has been one of the original smart watches to kickstart (pun intended) the smart watch revolution.  I backed the KickStarter campaign and have really enjoyed using it for these last couple of years, but boy, is the plastic wristband less than stylish! Luckily, the watchband can be switched out with various bands of your own [...]

You really have to give Apple a lot of credit when it comes to putting on a new product announcement event. They are definitely the masters of hype and showmanship. Even though I say I don't care about the iPhone anymore, I still get excited just like the rest of the planet to hear about [...]

  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 [...]

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 [...]

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. As I age, the latter being less appealing than it use to be. Each year I do my best to augment my excitement for pounding pavement with fun and interesting tech, [...]

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 wanted [...]

It seems the consensus that 2014 is the year of wearable tech. And while my vote is still out on the subject, this smartwatch did catch my eye. I noticed, not because of its high-tech look or bleeding-edge specs, but because of its classic understated design.  The COGITO ORIGINAL from ConnecteDevice Limited appears to be a relatively [...]

There are a few smart watches on the market, and the promise of more to come, but they mostly seem to be accessories for a smart phone.  The Neptune Pine from Neptune doesn't need a smart phone to pair with.  Just insert a microSIM card and it is a smartphone.  Neptune says with the Pine, [...]
