    This 3D-Printed Watch Doesn’t Tell Time Well But That Doesn’t Matter

    Not unlike Ke$ha, things that go tick-tock are quite interesting and this 3D printed clock is no exception. This clock, actually a tourbillon with a going barrel, is unique in that the DIY plans are available for download and, as far as anyone can tell, you and your friends could be telling time on giant 3D-printed clocks in a few hours. There are a number folks doing similar things online but… Read More

    Top Tech For Kids At CES

    If this year’s CES Kids and Technology Marketplace is the pulse of where we are today, it’s clear that developers, investors and brands need to pay closer attention to kids as a valuable vertical. The market – and the trade floors – are filled with clunky watches that are both an eye sore and cumbersome for a little wrist and pointless screen-based toys. However… Read More

    Meet H. Moser & Cie., The Swiss Watch Company Apple Is Probably About To Sue

    Oh, Switzerland, you seem to have it all: fine chocolates, fondue, goats with bells around their necks. But what you don’t have is a sense of how to beat smartwatch makers without looking silly. To wit: meet the H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alps watch (they probably meant the “alps” to be a play on “apple,” if you catch my drift.) This watch is supposed to be a… Read More

    Casio, the biggest name in rugged sports watches, has dipped a cautious toe into the smartwatch space with their new WSD-F10. This watch features a dual LCD/LED touchscreen and a battery life of about a day. It also features a rugged case and band in line with Casio’s Edifice and Protrek series of sports watches. It also features an internal altimeter, barometric pressure sensor, and… Read More

    The Tag Heuer Watch Is Google’s Best Effort To Get Wearables Over The Luxury Hump

    If you weren’t busy drinking coffee or staring out the window yesterday you could have seen Tag Heuer launch their new Android Wear device, the Carrera Connected. The watch has a handsome titanium case and nice crystal and contains an Android Wear device created specifically for Tag by Intel and Google. In all it’s an interesting proposition: a $1,500 Tag on a rubber strap that… Read More

  • A Few Days With The Pebble Time Round

    I’ve never worn a Pebble smartwatch for an extended period of time before. In fact, I’ve never really worn a modern smartwatch for an extended period of time, either. So when my colleague Drew Olanoff asked me to give the Pebble Time Round a whirl, I was of course skeptical of my need for a smartwatch. The Pebble watches have been some of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns… Read More

    TrueFacet, A Marketplace For Pre-Owned Jewelry, Relaunches With New Texting Feature

    If you were to collect all of the designer-label jewelry and watches in the world and throw them in a pile, TrueFacet cofounder and CEO Tirath Kamdar tells TechCrunch, over 40 percent of the pile would be counterfeit. Knowing that, buying pre-owned pieces of jewelry or a watch from another individual, or even one of the many jewelry stores across 47th street in NYC’s Jewelry District… Read More

    Another day, another fitness device that can track your distance, pace, heart rate, and nag you when you don’t exercise.

The 230 and 235 have colorful screens and the 235 includes built-in heart rate tracking technology. They can connect to a phone to bring up notifications and it… Read More

    Apple’s Moment On The Catwalk Is Here

    If you, like Andy Sachs, don’t believe that fashion is important, Apple just gave you a nudge in the right direction. While not many particularly cared, the first Apple Watch Hermès is a harbinger of something quite interesting. First, a bit about the watch. The only real difference, aside from the fancy new faces, is a leather band that comes in two permutations, single and double. This… Read More

    Crown & Caliber Unveils A New Marketplace For Watch Lovers

    For those of you who still like something ticking on your wrist Crown & Caliber has rebuilt itself from the ground up in an effort to sell some of the watches they’ve bought. Originally created as a watch sellers site – you’d tell them what you had and they’ve give you a price send a box mail it in – they have expanded further into watch sales in an effort… Read More

  • Martian’s New Smartwatch Hides The Power Inside An Unassuming Package

    Martian’s New Smartwatch Hides The Power Inside An Unassuming Package

    The Martian Voice Command Envoy tries hard make you think it’s not a smartwatch. The model I tested, a black faux diver with a non-working bezel and quartz movement, looks more like a drugstore Timex than a piece of precision electronics. However, hidden inside the normal-sized case is one of the better notification systems I’ve used. The company has been making smartwatches since… Read More

  • The Benarus Megalodon Lumbers Back To Life On Kickstarter

    The Benarus Megalodon Lumbers Back To Life On Kickstarter

    We first looked at the original Benarus Megalodon dive watch in 2012 when the massive timepiece first appeared on land. Designed by Steve Laughlin of Overland Park, KS (not a place normally associated with deep dives), the watch is 49mm in diameter, 19mm thick and is designed as a high-compression dive watch. You could, with a little sanding, fit two Apple Watches into one of these. Laughlin… Read More

    Chronos Is A Little Disk That Ensmartens Your Dumb Watch

    Now that I’ve nearly abandoned my collection of watches thanks to the evil Apple Watch, I’m starting to miss the staid, steady ticking of a good mechanical. But how can I be endlessly bothered by a little electronic thing and still celebrate the artistry of the fine watchmaker? Chronos! Chronos is a little disk that fits on the bottom of your fancy watch with… Read More

  • Not Quite Smart, The Luminox ANU Chronograph Is At Least Quite Bright

    Not Quite Smart, The Luminox ANU Chronograph Is At Least Quite Bright

    This weekend’s watch review comes to us from Luminox, a manufacturer well-known for their amazingly bright luminescent hands and pips. Luminox uses small tubes of tritium coated with phosphor. As the tritium decays it excites the phosphor, allowing the tubes to glow for years without “charging” in sunlight. It’s a neat trick and it affords amazing readability in the dark. Read More

    Withings Activité Fitness Tracking Watch Review

    Wearable tech has seemed on a fairly straightforward path throughout the course of its initial development – from the step counter, to the fitness band, to the smartwatch. But the wrist has long been a home for a more refined and storied piece of tech: The wristwatch. And while smartwatches attempt to reimagine that gadget for a modern age, only the new Withings Activité tracker nails… Read More

    Defakto Detail Struktur Review: A Watch Designed With Design In Mind

    Defakto is a boutique German watchmaker that creates the cases for brands with more recognition and history, but which focuses on classic, modern designs for its own imprint. The case shapes themselves are largely traditional and without flourish, with smaller diameter faces that look good on most wrist sizes. Defakto’s watch faces are exercises in minimalism, but with enough detail put… Read More
