BingoFit Smartwatch – Review

I’ll be honest, the lovely people at BingoFit Smartwatches sent me through a review unit of this BingoFit smartwatch some months ago but the entire cancer diagnosis has meant that the review has been delayed somewhat. It’s selling, right now, for just £22.31. Yes, a smartwatch, with app …

Fantastic deal on the Huawei Watch GT

I really do like the Honor and Huawei watches. I’m wearing the Honor MagicWatch 2 that I reviewed earlier this year. Love the thing. I paid over £129 for it. However, the Huawei Watch GT is essentially the same thing and, boy is it cheap right now. What …

Zepp E Smartwatch – Review

Let’s get one thing out of the way. I like smartwatches. No, that’s not quite right. I really like smartwatches. I have reviewed many smartwatches for Coolsmartphone in my years as a writer for the site. They have varied from the complex, like the TicWatch Pro, to the …

No matter if you’re in the USA or the UK, Father’s Day is June 21st, so there’s only one weekend to go. You may remember how the boys at Honor loaned us the Honor MagicWatch 2 and the Magic Earbuds recently. Both are brilliant and come highly recommended. …

Honor MagicWatch 2 – Review

MWC – Meet the nubia Alpha wearable phone

We’ve seen foldable phones in Barcelona, and – in years past (actually, it was 2016!) – we’ve seen flexible displays. The latter was actually first brought to our attention as a possible wearable by FlexEnable but they didn’t have the necessary capacity to make it a full-on production …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Spy Watch – Review
