Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE smartwatch review

REVIEW – The Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE is not your grandfather’s wristwatch. OK. I have nine grandchildren, so there is that small possibility.

Casio PRO TREK WSD-F30 Android WearOS smartwatch review

REVIEW – Casio manufactures a wide range of electronic goods, from calculators to musical instruments. But I would argue, Casio is best known for their wrist watches…particularly their G-SHOCK line. For decades the G-SHOCK has been one of the goto watches for rugged dependability. A watch engineered to survive a march thru hell and back …

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.

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. …
