    Q&Q SmileSolar Brings Citizen’s Eco-Drive Tech In A Youthful, Affordable Timepiece

    Take the technology behind Citizen’s Eco-Drive watches, cram it inside a hip and colorful case reminiscent of Swatch watches from way back, and slap it with an affordable pricetag.  What you get is the Q&Q SmileSolar, a maintenance-free timepiece that never needs winding or a fresh change of batteries. Sure, it brings none of the sophistication of full-fledged Eco-Drive timepieces with their satellite signal reception and premium construction.  It does get the same solar-charging abilty, though, able to replenish its [...]

  • Moto 360: Sorry Pebble, Someone Else Just Made The Hottest-Looking Smartwatch

    Moto 360: Sorry Pebble, Someone Else Just Made The Hottest-Looking Smartwatch

    We love the Pebble Steel’s classier take on the smartwatch.  More than anything, it gave us hope that even prettier wrist computers will find their way into the market soon.  If the Moto 360 is any indication, that could be happening even sooner than we thought. Sporting a round face and a whole load of style, it’s the first smartwatch that genuinely looks like a fashion accessory rather than a utilitarian computer, making for a fashionable replacement to your wrist [...]

  • Android Wear: Meet Google’s Smartwatch OS Platform

    Android Wear: Meet Google’s Smartwatch OS Platform

    Just like they did with smartphones, Google won’t be getting into the smartwatch market by building their own wrist-gadget.  Instead, they’re choosing to focus on the software the wearables will run on with the freshly-announced Android Wear. A modified version of Google’s mobile OS, it extends the power of Android into the growing world of smartwatches and wearables.  As with regular Android, it’s designed to run on hardware from different manufacturers, lowering the barrier to entry for any company looking [...]

    Filip Is A Wearable Phone Watch Designed With Child Safety In Mind

    Giving your young children a phone can be helpful in many ways.  Not only will it allow you to communicate via calls and SMS, you can also turn on the GPS to track their location in real time.  Provided they don’t drop their phones while climbing a Pirate Ship Playhouse or destroy them from doing any of the raucous things little children do, that is.  The Filip offers a less troublesome alternative. Made by Filip Technologies, it looks like a [...]

    CES 2014 Wearable Tech Gadget And Gizmo Roundup

    Wearables, Wearable tech, gadgets, gizmos, sensors: What ever you want to call them, they’re gonna be everywhere in 2014. While the amount of options consumers are bound to have is definitely exciting, the lack of unique features in most new offerings is definitely a little disappointing. Regardless, it’s going to be a busy year for fitness monitors, smart watches and the occasional fringe wearable that belongs in neither of those two categories. 1. Metawatch Made by Fossil spinoff, Metawatch, the Meta [...]

  • Pebble Steel Classes Up The Popular Smartwatch

    Pebble Steel Classes Up The Popular Smartwatch

    The Pebble Watch is still, arguably the best wearable consumer gadget available today. And while we love its functionality, the design could definitely use a little style injection. That’s exactly what we seem to be getting with the Pebble Steel, which casts the pioneering smartwatch in a more elegant material. Instead of the plastic body of the original, this new version is forged in CNC-machined stainless steel, taking the device’s refinement to a whole different level. That means, you no [...]

    Everyone knows Rorschach tests, those inkblots on a card they show a serial killer that has him saying, “I see a girl hanging by the neck over a volcano with smoke coming out of her nose.”  Or something like that.  Well, Tokyoflash decided to turn those same inkblots into a time-telling mechanism with the new Kisai Rorscharch.

    Garmin Tactix: A Superhero Watch For Land, Air And Sea Missions

    Superheroes with no superhuman powers need all the gadgets they can get their hands on to give them an edge.  And while the Garmin Tactix lacks any weapons to effectively become a de facto superhero timepiece, it brings a whole load of features that make it suited for adventurous vigilantes all the same. Packed with features inspired by various tactical law enforcement and military operations, the watch should make a handy companion whether you’re hunting asylum inmates who escaped through [...]

    Samsung Galaxy Gear: Samsung’s Smartwatch Is Here

    Been holding out on getting a smartwatch until the big companies get in on the action?  While we’re yet to see Apple’s take on the wearable gadget (and, let’s be honest, that’s what everyone is waiting for), Samsung has unveiled their first foray into the category in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Sporting a relatively underwhelming design, it’s far from the hottest timepiece you can strap around your wrist.   If you can embrace the aesthetics, though, then the [...]

    Casio G-Shock Goes Luxury With The Metal Twisted MT-G Collection

    G-Shock and luxury don’t exactly come hand in hand, so we guess most folks will have a hard time embracing the premise behind the G-Shock Metal Twisted MT-G Collection.  Think about how you, basically, treat your G-Shock like a battlefield accessory yet it keeps surviving and, we guess, adding some luxury styling on top of the killer durability wouldn’t be such a bad idea. Casio bills the MT-G as “a completely refined series crafted for select premium styles,”  with all [...]

    Tokyoflash Kisai Neutron Looks Like A Futuristic Wrist-Worn Spy Gadget

    Tokyoflash has a long tradition of making watches that look like they’re timepieces that came right out of a sci-fi movie.  For the most part, though, they still looked like watches — just with some weird digital display on the face.   The Tokyoflash Kisai Neutron, on the other hand, looks like a futuristic wristband that packs advanced superpowers right out of a James Bond movie from 2299. Sporting cut-out bars from the band to the body, it looks like [...]

    Bradley Watch Lets You Touch The Time

    Leaning down to glance at your Seiko Astron to check the time?  Easy enough.  Unless you’re inside a dark movie theater.  Or a really dingy club.  Or trapped inside a coffin buried underground like that Ryan Reynolds movie.  In those situations, the Bradley Timepiece should work way better. Described as “a tactile timepiece,” it’s a watch that lets you tell time by simply touching the face.  That way, there’s no need to look at the watch face if you don’t [...]

    WearIT Brings Standalone Smart Features To Sportswatches

Clad in a stylish sportswatch form factor, the timepiece should look just as swell as your favorite Nike or Adidas alternative, all while packing way more features than you’ll ever get from existing offerings in the [...]
