LG G Watch – Review

A watch fundamentally is foolproof, you look at it wanting answers and it duly obliges, although for many years this has been a rather simple transaction. i.e what is the time? It is 5am. Simple. This idea hasn’t been played about with for a long time. With

Aces of Luftwaffe review

I don’t normally review games for smart phones as I don’t normally play them but this one caught my attention in a big way so I figured what the hell.   The premise of the game is very simple it is a top down rolling shooter that

My time with Google Glass

I have been a big fan of Google Glass for a while, pretty much ever since I saw the demo at Google I/O back in 2012. At the time it was tested jumping out of a plane whilst streaming via Hangouts. Now, whilst that is not something

Fitbit is a great service, allowing you to track steps, sleep, food, active periods of time all using a handy little Bluetooth wearable. I’ve been using the Fitbit Flex for a while now and it’s really interesting/motivating to see the latest figures. The Fitbit app has been

My Kronoz smartwatch – A cheaper alternative

It’s not quite the full-on Android Wear watch you’d expect, but it is somewhere quite close. This, the Kronz watch, will let you take and reject calls from your smartphone and it’ll also alert you when your phone is out of range so that you don’t forget

HTC to the the smartwatch arena?

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. This is pretty ugly. You’re right too, but it’s an apparent “artists representation” of what the new HTC smartwatch could look like. This one, as usual, comes from @evleaks and he’s his usual confident self when it comes to authenticity… To

Up-close with the LG G Watch

Packing an always-on display, 400mAh battery (which is enough for a day of activity) and powered by Android Wear, this is the LG G Watch. It’s both dust and water resistant, plus you can just say “OK Google” to ask it questions, such as “Come on KITT

LG announce a kid friendly wristband

Gunnar Optics Glasses review

I know what you are thinking. I have clearly lost my marbles. Maybe you’re right, but not with regard to this review. The reason I found these interesting is that I work in front of a computer screen all day, and I regularly end up with pretty

Garmin Vivofit Fitness Tracker – Review

Wearables are very much the “in thing” at present. It is pretty much a free-for-all as to what they do and what their purpose should be. This is pretty interesting state of affairs because, due to the fact that everyone is having a shot at wearables, it

A closer look at the Moto 360

We got a brief introduction to the not-quite-available-yet Moto 360 smartwatch just a few days ago, but here’s a closer look at the device. It has a tiny bezel and a screen which almost seems to float on the top of the watch, but is slightly thick.

Gunnar Optics glasses unboxing

Time for something different. I have to wear glasses for work as I spend the vast majority of my day in front of a computer screen. Now, while the screens have got better than they once used to be, it can be very tiring on your eyes.
