watchit

We've all seen car mounts for smartphones, tablets, and even laptops, but have you ever seen a car mount for a smartwatch? Neither have I until now. The Watchit! 3D from byVinzant is a specially designed car mount head unit for smartwatches like the Apple Watch. The Watchit! 3D gets its name from the fact [...]

I was a relatively early adopter of smartwatches; I owned the original Pebble smartwatch before upgrading to a Moto 360 last February. Admittedly, I was initially skeptical of their usefulness; however, my smartwatch quickly and seamlessly integrated itself into my daily routine. The ability to dismiss calls, quickly reply to text messages, and receive notifications from [...]

The Kisai Link isn't one of the cool watches that you probably expect from Tokyoflash Japan.  It's a Bluetooth notification bracelet that's available in 28 different styles, so you're sure to find one you like.  The Link is the rectangular module you see in the top image.  Link uses Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy to connect [...]

nomadkey-charging-cable-pebble-watch

Nomad based the design for the NomadKey USB charging cable for the Pebble Original smart watch on a key.  Since you always have your keys with you when you're out, why not have a key-sized charger on the keyring?  It won't feel like you are carrying anything extra, but you'll have a tough, flexible charging [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

Intel, working with Opening Ceremony, have created MICA, My Intelligent Communications Accessory for the "stylish, connected woman".  If a typical smart watch is too boring and bland for your taste, check out the "premium finishes, 18K gold coating, and curved sapphire glass touchscreen display" used to craft MICA.  This bracelet uses AT&T's wireless service to deliver [...]

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, [...]
