ILive – Voice Activated Clock with Amazon Alexa Review

The future is NOW: MATRIX PowerWatch runs on body heat!

I’ve been a daily watch wearer for over 30 years now, and one thing I’ve always wished for has been a watch that never needs a new battery (or a recharge, in the case of today’s smartwatches).  The clever folks at Matrix Industries, Inc. may have finally made that dream a reality.  Their MATRIX PowerWatch …

The Misfit Path smartwatch will make you feel pretty

Let’s be honest, the vast majority of smartwatches are designed by and for men. I’m not saying all smartwatches have a bulky masculine style, but most do and it’s time to find a smartwatch that is smaller and more feminine.

Game Boy alarm clock wakes you up to Super Mario tunes

Game Boy alarm clock

Waking up is about to become a bit more fun, or rather 8-bit more fun thanks to the Game Boy alarm clock. Sorry, we couldn’t resist. The Game Boy alarm clock is practically an identical replica of the original console from the 80’s. To that effect, it’s even the same size. But instead of being used …

(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 …

When they were first released, I thought they looked very stylish but delicate, and I felt that I’d be afraid to engage in the types of heavy-duty fitness and other activities that I tend to favor. But as usual, 3rd-party companies have stepped …

I love watches, but I hate wearing them. And now that I carry a smartphone in my pocket almost 24/7, I don’t really need to wear a watch on my wrist. But if for some reason I did need to carry a dedicated watch, I would consider a pocket watch because like I already said, …
