Catalyst, the award-winning manufacturer of some of the most stylish, while protective waterproof cases on the market too to Showstoppers here at CES 2017 to announce they have again raised the bar for overall waterproof protection for smart devices.
There’s a big flaw in the concept of fitness wearables; they really only work for running or biking. Weightlifting, calisthenics, boxing, and other workouts just aren’t conducive to having a watch on, and it cuts out a big chunk of the fitness market. Twelve South may have a solution with their new ActionSleeve Armband for the Apple Watch.
Having an Apple Watch is quite the struggle when you’re on the go all day, only to look down at your battery midday and it’s already low. It’s almost as bad as having a low phone battery, but what if I told you there’s a product that could eliminate low batteries on both simultaneously?
If you have an Apple Watch, then you might be a huge fan of their silicone wrist straps that come included with the popular smartwatch. But what if you wanted something a little bit nicer but with a similar feel? Well, you might be in luck.
I stopped wearing a watch around the time cell phones became small enough to always carry, probably around 2000 or so, with a Nokia chicklet phone or a Motorola Flip phone. Only when I started running long distances and trying to track my times and paces did I start to think it might be time to actually get a GPS running watch.
When the Apple Watch Series 2 went up for pre-sale at midnight PST on September 9th, the lead-times quickly slipped from September 16th to a range of the 28th – 30th. All within one hour of being available to pre-order. That is what I got with my pre-order at 3:45AM EST. However, when Best Buy put up their pre-order availability they kept it set for September 16th throughout the day on September 9th – so I pre-ordered from Best Buy and canceled my Apple order. Pre-orders remained as ‘processing’ with an expected 9/16 release date until the night of September…
Apple had a lot of announcements yesterday, but the one that caught my attention was the new Apple Watch 2. It now includes GPS, waterproofing, and even a model cobranded with Nike, showing that Apple has the fitness market square in the crosshairs. These are all welcome improvements, but will it have an impact in the crowded fitness tracker/fitness watch market? Let’s start by eliminating one group that won’t be buying an Apple watch: the budget conscious folks have a plethora of options available to them that offer many of the same fitness benefits without the cost of the Apple…
If you’ve read our reviews about Monowear’s Apple Watch accessories, but you were wondering if they’d ever put out a stand so you could charge your precious smartwatch and your iPhone, then you’re in luck.
Apple held their Worldwide Developer Conference today. The public portion of the event was the keynote which clocked in at almost 2 hours and featured a top-down review of the highlights expect in what Apple identified as their four foundational platforms – watchOS, tvOS, OS X (later rebranded as macOS) and iOS.
If you have yourself an Apple Watch and have been stuck using the Sport Band, and looking for something a bit more elegant for your wrist wear, you don’t have to look any further. I’ve reviewed quite a few Apple Watch bands over the past year, many being good, but NONE quite like the Nomad Strap for Apple Watch. I’ve been rocking the band for the past few weeks and I can honestly say it’s one of the best leather bands made for the techie but trendy watch by Apple. The band itself is made of leather on both sides…
Since the Apple Watch has been updated to include Nightstand Mode, there are many new options for charging the watch overnight. I recently was able to review the HoverDock by Just Mobile which retails for $34.95. Basically, it is a minimalist way to charge the Apple Watch while using it in Nightstand Mode. Let’s take a look.
Dan and I recently did reviews of some of Monowear’s products for the Apple Watch. We were both pleased with the design and quality of their bands. They have just released a new take on band design that combines open loop and closed loop options. The new leather deployment bands retail for $89.99 and are really cool. Let’s take a look! Historically, when using a standard leather watch band, they push through the little loop and hook into whichever hole is best for your size then run through another loop to hold the access. While this style of watch band…
Since the Apple Watch bands are so easy to change out, most people will collect a few styles. Some of these bands can be costly and need to be stored safely. Monowear has introduced the MonoChest ($99.95) which will safely house and display up to three bands and the watch as it charges. Let’s take a closer look.
With news that the Apple Watch has dropped $50 as of yesterday, plenty of people are out there attempting to get themselves one of the best smartwatches on the market. So why not get yourself one of the best bands on the market? Nomad is popular for their battery chargers and accessories for Apple products, but did you know that they make leather bands for them as well? Available today for $59.99 – $79.95, you can get yourself their Strap for Apple Watch in two styles and two colors. Available in both sizes: 42mm and 38mm, the Apple Watch band…
We were all glued to the Apple event today; unfortunately, it wasn’t with the usual pulse-pounding excitement we’ve had in the past. Some of us walked away a little disappointed … here are our thoughts!
A personal favorite company of mine, Native Union announced today their minimalistic charging line, with a host of new colors! Native Union finally announced that their popular DOCK SERIES for the Apple Watch as well as for the iPhone and iPad will now be available in a midnight blue with gold brushed metal, or a stone color with rose gold brushed metals. These new colors will completely round out the finishes to your Apple Watch or smart device when it needs to be docked to charge. Fabien Nauroy, Head of Design at Native Union comments: “Customers love our charging docks…
Let’s just get this out of the way now: Native Union makes some the most unique products out on the market, and I’m a huge fan. So when I received their most recent Native Union DOCK for the Apple Watch, both my watch, and I were pleased.
There are dozens of Apple Watch docks out there on the market, but if you spend $399 for an Apple Watch, you might want it resting on something that looks just as fancy. Luckily Native Union is known for bringing out the best in your favorite smartphones & watches with their accessories.
There are over 20 Apple Watch docks on the market, and all of them have their own place in the World, but Fuse Chicken’s Bobine Watch for the Apple Watch dock does it in a style that you won’t find with others.
I’ve got an Apple Watch, and from normal wear the stainless steel has a light patina of little scratches. I don’t worry about that, but I do sometimes worry about whacking my watch or breaking its crystal; I’m paranoid like that. If you’re worried that your lifestyle might be too active for your watch, then you need the LUNATIK EPIK.
Mobile service provider Sprint announced today that it will begin selling the Apple Watch in their stores starting this Friday, September 25.
