Smartwatch

moto360-7.0

Yesterday, I reported the news that the latest version of Android Wear will be compatible with iPhones. Based on the feedback I received, it is clear that our readers are as excited as I am that they will have more options than the Apple Watch to join the smartwatch revolution. Today, Motorola announced the availability [...]

  Google announced that as of Monday, Google’s Android Wear smart watches will now connect to Apple’s iPhones (iPhone 5 and up). This is big news for those of us who have iPhones, but who are fans of Google’s many useful tools, such as Google Calendar, Gmail, and my favorite, Google Now. While Google’s Android [...]

I'm a big fan of Casio's G-Shock watches; I've worn them for years and can vouch that they are some of the toughest watches in the world and packed with useful features. The latest G-Shock GB400 models include some new features that caught my eye. Bluetooth Smart enables linking between the watch and a phone for remote control [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
