    The Apple Watch’s unlock feature could turn the smartwatch tides

    Pull on your commenting pants because I’m going to offer up some wild speculation coupled with real-world experience to come to a conclusion that some of you might find ludicrous and others will find just weird.

    Reverie Classic is a crowdfunded watch with some beautiful bones

    Print your own triple-axis tourbillon (trust me, it’ll be cool)

    In the world of horology there are few things fancier than the tourbillion and there are few things extra fancier than a triple-axis model.

    The Garmin vivofit 3 makes me want to move again

    I’ve long been an activity tracker kind of guy. I strapped them all onto my fleshy wrist: the Fitbits, the Nikes, the Polars. I’ve watched circles fill up on my Apple Watch and I’ve watched ghost competitors race me on early GPS watches. But for the past few months I abandoned any wrist-based tracker because the battery in the one I was using kept dying. And so I went… 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.

    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

  • 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
