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.

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. …

Barrington Special Edition Watch Winder review

REVIEW – I have a small but growing collection of automatic watches which I love wearing. In the era of smartphones and smartwatches, many say that old school timepieces are a thing of the past.

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

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

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 …
