The lifecycle of a new gadget is relatively predictable: When it’s brand new, only early adopters are interested. Once the technology matures, everybody buys one. But smartwatches still haven’t caught on with most people—and that’s because no one has made a smartwatch that’s worth its cost.
Amazon’s first-ever live TV show will air tonight. Called Style Code Live, it will features three exuberant presenters attempting to sell Amazon’s clothing stock. Yes, it’s a shopping channel. No, you probably won’t be able to endure it.
It was really only a matter of time before the Finnish brand known for popularizing playful, accessible, well-designed products for good living made its way into the American retailer that epitomizes those values.
Many of us have bought clothes from Amazon, but we’ll apparently soon have the chance to by clothes by Amazon. That’s right. It looks like Amazon wants to launch its own line of shirts, pants, dresses, and so on.
Back in my day, schools used to recommend bringing a watch into tests so you’d keep track of the time. But now, the rise of smartwatches could lead to a flat-out ban of all timepieces for test-takers, if the latest rule at a major university in Japan is any indication.
A family from the northern Canadian territory of Nunavut is accusing high-end European clothing designer Kokon To Zai of using a sacred inuit design without permission.
All the best-dressed explorers wore glittery spacesuits more suitable to the Silver Surfer than somber NASA astronauts in the early days of the Space Age. These are the helmets, gloves, and boots for the Mercury Seven astronauts.
“It looks like a watch!” my wife proclaimed, when I showed her the Pebble Time Round. She wasn’t stating the obvious. She meant that out of all the smartwatches she’d ever seen, it’s the first one that looks like something she would wear.
So this is a thing that actually happened. Yesterday at New York Fashion Week, Tumblr debuted its very own line of dresses, shirts, sweaters and accessories — inspired by ten of the social network’s artists.
Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360, with its flat tire screen.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.
The Moto 360 was one of the first wearables that got us thinking, “Yeah, this whole smartwatch thing just might work.” It had some flaws, sure, but it was a functioning computer on your wrist and it wasn’t completely terrible. Now, Motorola is taking another stab at with the new Moto 360—cleaning up the design but…
While Android makers like LG, Motorola, and ASUS, are working on their second-gen smartwatches, Huawei is finally getting around to the first. Previously announced back in Barcelona this spring, the Huawei Watch is finally ready to conquer wrists. And it’s a good start—with room for improvement.
These idiotic around-the-neck headphones have been everywhere lately, and I have no idea what and why they are. What in the hell, man?
So far, the most practical use man has found for ferrofluid—the mesmerizing black goo that reacts to magnets in cool ways—is as gorgeous eye candy. And that’s totally OK, because how else would have Nike realized this slick animated display for its new Kevin Durant sneakers?
Slowly but surely, smartwatches are becoming more useful. And this might be one of the most useful feature for a smartwatch yet: Google just announced it’s bringing Google Translate to Android Wear watches, letting you carry on a bilingual converation with a literal flick of the wrist.
Samsung showed us two jumbo phones today that were, you know, more or less what we were expecting—and frankly not all that interesting. At the end of the show, though, Samsung teased the Gear S2 smartwatch, set to be announced on September 3rd at IFA in Berlin. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
Here’s an innovation so impractical, uncomfortable, and expensive, that I can’t stop looking at it. Of course the world has produced a luxury Swiss timepiece that has space on its band for an Apple Watch. It’s a goofy two-faced hybrid watch that packs a gloriously unnecessary double-whammy of bling into a single…
It’s still summer, but these mathematical merino scarves designed with a computer algorithm are getting us in the mood for colder temps. And making us wonder if we need to improve our coding skills.
