Fossil’s new Sport Smartwatch is colorful and packed with features

NEWS – Fossil’s smartwatches have come a long way since Judie and I posted our joint review of their Palm and Pocket PC wrist PDAs over 16 years ago!

Matrix PowerWatch X review

REVIEW – Smart watches are one of the hottest tech trends in recent years, but one of the main drawbacks of these popular “wearables” with their wealth of features is their battery life, or lack thereof. Many smartwatches require daily charging, which can be a bit irritating and sometimes inconvenient.  That’s why the Matrix PowerWatch …

TicWatch Pro smartwatch review

I enjoy looking at watches and reading about watches, but I don’t actually wear a watch. Weird right? I used to wear a watch every day but that was back before smartphones. Now I don’t really need one. Or do I? That’s a question I planned to answer by reviewing the TicWatch Pro from Mobvoi. …

The Misfit Path smartwatch will make you feel pretty

Let’s be honest, the vast majority of smartwatches are designed by and for men.

The Path Hybrid Smartwatch from Misfit looks like it fits that criteria. Misfit is well …

Fossil Q Explorist (& Q Venture) Stainless Steel smartwatch review

Since Fossil sent me two of their latest GEN3 smartwatches, one much more masculine than the other, I thought it would be fun to do a joint review. So I drafted a longtime gal-pal of mine to try out the bedazzled rose gold Venture since it was just too bling for me to handle 😉 …

(Hopefully) the third time is the charm: Apple Watch Series 3 review

The title says it all… I’ve purchased both the Series 1 and Series 2 Apple Watches, taking them both back within Apple’s no-questions-asked return window. Each time going into the relationship starry-eyed and hopeful. But ultimately determining that I didn’t need Apple’s smartwatch or I missed my old school timepieces. Well, oops I’ve done it …

Ghost Studio’s Android Wear watch faces are incredible

Wow. That’s the only word that popped into my head when I clicked a link in an email to the Ghost Studio website. I wasn’t expecting much because I get so many emails asking to look at apps, products, etc, that end up being disappointing when I take the time to check them out. That …

Analog meets digital with SKAGEN smartwatches

Most smartwatches look like smartwatches. But the SKAGEN Hagen Connected Hybrid Smartwatch looks more like a classic analog watch and as far as I’m concerned, that’s not a bad thing. SKAGEN’s watches are available with four traditional analog style watch faces, 20mm wristband styles, and have digital features that include: Automatic date and time adjustment …
