Android Wear Beta Announced

It’s probably fair to say that Android Wear is yet to capture the popular mood in the same way that the Apple Watch has. Although there are a fairly wide variety of watches out there, there is little to differentiate them apart from aesthetics, with manufacturers hardly changing …

Huawei Watch 2 now available to buy

Wearables. I’m still falling off the fence regularly about these. I like the idea, I like the notifications and the whole geeky wonderness of them, but practically… I just end up with the one device every day, and that’s my phone. No matter though, because if you’re after …

LG and Google team up on improved smartwatches

Android Wear 2.0 LG-made Google watches pop up

The all-new Android Wear 2.0 is set to launch on two new smartwatches. Those watches, it seems, will look like this. This low-resolution photo is said to show the LG-made watches, which have been created alongside Google. One looks more “sporty” than the other but both come with …

Pebble 2 Smartwatch – Review

I was one of the Kickstarter backers for the original Pebble smartwatch back in 2012. I still actually own that too. Shortly after I purchased the Pebble Steel. However, when the colour Pebble Time watches appeared, I fell out of love with them. I thought the new colour ePaper interface was a …

Misfit announce a hybrid smartwatch – The Phase

Heard of Fossil Watches? Misfit are part of the same group, and today they’ve launched a smartwatch that looks like an analogue watch. It’s rather lovely as well. The Misfit Phase will be available to buy from mid-November on misfit.com for £165 in 6 colour options. It can …

Is HTC finally about to release a smartwatch?

This has got to be one of the longest-running rumours of the tech world. The first suggestions that HTC were working on some sort of smart wearable surfaced back in 2014, when a picture of this appeared online: Even by 2014 standards it wasn’t the most glamorous of …

Spy Watch – Review

Check me out ladies. I got me a spy watch. I’m just like James Bond, but with an added belly and some questionable reasons for actually owning one. This, it has to be said, does exactly what it says on the tin. There’s two batteries inside – one …

Got a Smartwatch? Want wood for it?

Smartwatches are starting to become a proper “thing” now and, with more and more people buying into the sector, there will be more and more demand for accessories. As an owner of a Pebble Time for nearing a year now, I have grown a bit bored of the “de …

Will you be gaming on your smartwatch?

Do you remember the large clunky desktop computers that we used back in the day? Thankfully, they are now vestiges of the past. Technology has advanced so quickly that nowadays we have computers in our hands and even in our glasses. Before too long we’ll have our cars …

ORSTO Smartwatch with 7 month’s battery life revealed.

I have always worn a watch. I have a weakness where watches are concerned. Tie that in with my love of technology and the smartwatch is my perfect device. However, I love the classic watches. There’s just just something about a mechanical time piece.. watch lovers will understand… …

Bluboo Xwatch approaching – Android Wear for not that much at all

We get a lot of random emails. One company in particular has been pretty incessant, and that’s Chinese manufacturer Bluboo. They make phones (like the pretty powerful and good-looking X9 which is a “monster inside and aesthetic outside”) and watches, like their Uwatch. Next month they’ll be launching …

Pebble Health a stone’s throw away from fitter smartwear

Huawei Watch – Review

It’s the first time that I’ve properly tried Android Wear, and this is the watch I’m doing it with. The Huawei Watch. Truth be told, when I got it out of the rather lovely box, I thought it was a bit fat, but after wearing it for the …
