There are smartwatches, and there are fitness trackers. If you want any combination of the two, you’ll have to accept the compromises inherent in cramming a lot of sensors into an attractive, wrist-sized package. This is the problem the Moto 360 Sport comes tantalisingly close to solving.
A touchscreen GPS navigator that works in the wilderness and that you can wear on your wrist? That’s a neat idea, but not one that Garmin’s been able to realize with this new Epix. Allow me to explain.
I just got one of the new Garmin Epix touchscreen, GPS navigator smartwatches in for review. I do not have slim wrists; this thing is HUGE. How would you like to see us test it?
Watches are awesome, ancient technology. They’re simple, often beautiful, completely functional tiny clocks we strap to our arms and wear out into the world. I love watches, but I think making them “smart” makes them worse. Instead, we should be making smart bands for the dumb, beautiful watches that already exist.
I run, bike, swim, surf, snowboard, paddle, hunt and ride motorcycles. Not only is the Garmin Fenix 3 the first smartwatch capable of keeping up throughout all those activities, but it’s also the first to genuinely help me become better at them.
Huawei is launching not one but three wearables this year at Mobile World Congress, and the new Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch is the most interesting of the trio. The Huawei Watch is nice but also, well, just another Android Wear watch, and to me it's as bulky as almost every other smartwatch out there—with a…
I have a hard time caring about smartwatches. They sound neat, but most of them have tiny batteries that can barely last a couple days. Why can't someone make a watch that both looks swanky and has a decent sized battery? Well, LG just did: it's called the Watch Urbane LTE.
People want their smartwatches to be fashion statements. And some have gone to extreme measures—including one enterprising, sandpaper-equipped individual—to make them uniquely their own. Now, Motorola is making it way easier to build your own Moto 360 smartwatch—no sandpaper required.
The Suunto Ambit2 (HR) won't read you your email and doesn't know Will.i.am's phone number. But, it will tell you your precise location anywhere on earth and powerfully monitors your physical exertion. How many beers did that climb burn? http://indefinitelywild.gizmodo.com/achieving-hima...
Sony's been trying the smartwatch thing for years, but the original SmartWatch and the SmartWatch 2 both... what's the word I'm looking for here? Sucked? Yeah. But the SmartWatch 3 has solid performance and two nifty features you won't find on any other Android Wear. It's the first with built-in GPS and a screen you…
The Apple Watch was already one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2015 before the year even started. And though current rumors indicate we still have two months worth of waiting, a new leak of the watch's companion app, posted by the ever-reliable Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac, give us even more details on what this watch…
Android Central has confirmed that LG's new smartwatch is powered by webOS. The watch has been shown off at CES by Audi, where it was used to beckon a car on to the stage.
A smartphone company launching a smartwatch is in no way original. In fact, we saw five of them last year—and that's only counting the Android Wear crowd. So Alcatel OneTouch, a company best known for budget-friendly smartphones, is just another marching band in the continuous wearable parade.
