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.

Truffol Strap for Pebble smartwatch review

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 …

Samsung Gear Live…WATCH for it!

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 …
