Huawei Watch priced up. You got £300 spare?

We had a play with some of the Huawei smartwatches at Mobile World Congress and they’re looked really rather good. What was of concern though, was the possible price of their new Huawei Watch. MobileFun appear to have slid it into their website for a cool £300

Microsoft Band – Review

A few weeks ago you may remember that I was able to get hold of the Microsoft Band briefly at its launch event. I have now had some time with the device and thought I would share my thoughts with you. I am not the fittest guy

Pebble Time update.

For a moment yesterday we were concerned that Pebble Time, a device we were waiting patiently for, was going to be nothing but vapourware. This morning there was a collective sigh of relief as, in our inboxes, we were greeted with an email from Kickstarter with an

Galaxy Gear Live disappears –

From the Google Play Store that is. If you either love Android Wear (me) or hate it (James) it appears that one of the first Android Wear devices, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Live has now disappeared from the Google Play Store, no fire sale, nada, nothing, just

Lumia 640 and Microsoft Band deal on O2

The cynic in me suspects this might be a sign that O2 are not shifting enough of their stock of the Lumia 640 and Microsoft Band…but, for those tempted to opt for a pretty well-specced but low priced Windows Phone, look no further than this deal.  

Apple Watch – First Impressions

OK, thanks to another member of the team I’ve been able to get my hands on an Apple Watch. Dover Street Market had stock of the White 38mm, so that’s the one I’ve got. What do I think? Well, getting it out the box is a pleasure.

What will you use an Apple Watch for?

After the Apple watch hit stores, fans have been checking their bank balances before getting that hot new piece of technology. Heck, if you don’t have enough cash right now, that might not matter. Surely it can go on the credit card? ;) The British market is

The stylish LG Urbane smartwatch is also on sale from Clove. Earlier today we saw it appear on Google Play. Clove Technology has the watch in stock now ready for delivery. Retailing at £260 you will receive the luxurious Android Wear-powered smartwatch from LG with the following

LG Watch Urbane – Get it today from Google Play

You’ve got £259.99, right? You don’t need that new TV. No, you need a watch my friend. A smartwatch. This is one we got the full sweaty hands-on with (or should that be ”wrist-on”?) In Barcelona at Mobile World Congress. It’s available in silver or gold (and

Apple Watches available to buy now

For those of you disappointed that you cannot buy an Apple Watch immediately, rest assured that the national treasure that is CEX has some in stock.   Given the relative scarcity the prices are significantly higher than you’d pay at Apple, but if you have deep pockets

The Apple Watch. What’s it like to wear £12,000 ?

Arriving for a meeting in London later in the day I had already decided to visit the Apple store in Regent St. However this was for no ordinary everyday browse, this time it was to try on their new VERY limited ‘Edition’ Watch. This starts at £8,000 for

Sony SmartWatch 2 SW2 gets a serious price drop

It’s been some time since we published our Sony Smartwatch 2 Review. If you wanted one they were still holding out at £149.99, but now Amazon have slashed the price right down to just £68.92 here.. It’s billed as a “wireless smartphone notification device” and will also

GV18 Aplus smartwatch phone, like the one I reviewed, but cheaper.

Remember the Atongm W008 Smartwatch I reviewed? Well, here’s a very similar one for a mere £27.30 – that’s just $40.80. As for the specs, the actual promotional shots state that this one has a “HD Camera” which is apparently “As table 300,000 camera” to “Catch the

Apple Watch availability

Like pretty much everything that Apple produces, the Watch has already proven to be a financial success. Although Apple hasn’t confirmed, it appears that online orders have been overwhelming and that over 2 million were placed within 6 hours. An internal memo from the Senior Vice President

What is iFIT and Does it Work

There are a vast number of fitness products available on the market, each trying to stand out from the crowd with its own target audience. I’ve tried a number of products in the past and had some success, but ultimately having to use a mix of ecosystems

Moto 360 Watch now a bit cheaper here in the UK too

The price of the Moto 360 has dropped in the USA recently, but here in sunny Britain we’ve only just been blessed with a price drop. It’s only on the light finish Moto 360 but it’s £40 off and you can’t argue too much with that. You

Apple Watch – Day one orders hit 1 million

That’s right. A million. On day one. There are always going to be some people who aren’t into wearables, and there will be others who can’t quite buy into the Apple way of doing things, but there are enough people who think differently. In a report from

What can you do with a SmartWatch…

And more importantly – what’s the point? I’ve personally never understood the need for a SmartWatch. Perhaps it’s because of the reported short battery life on some models, or it’s because I’m never separated from my phone, but I never really ‘got it’. However, I’ve become aware that

Hannspree SportWatch fitness tracker – Review

The fitness wearable market is quite a varied one. With many manufacturers creating all different shapes and sizes of wrist bands or watches. A few weeks ago Hannspree announced the Sport Watch which seemed to have the ideal combination of features. They’ve sent me one which I’ve
