Quantifying our health is one of the big technological leaps forward of the last few years. We now have more ability to understand the day to day workings of our bodies than ever before, allowing us to take better control of our health and fitness. Withings is taking that to the next level with their new ScanWatch.
Earlier this year, I reviewed the Huawei Watch GT; I was a huge fan of its long battery life and sleep tracking, but I felt its larger size might be an issue for those with smaller wrists, and I lamented the limited selection of watch faces. Well, the updated Huawei Watch GT 2 is here, and I’ve been wearing it for the past month. How does it compare?
I’ve just returned from Hong Kong, where I was attending the Global Source s Show. Global Sources is one of the largest consumer electronics shows in Asia, billing itself as the “world’s biggest mobile sourcing show” which means that it’s a great source for companies who need to find new products to sell. Here are some of the products I thought were noteworthy.
Whether you’re a yoga instructor, a professional athlete or a casual gym-goer, you’ll want to learn more about the smartwatches on the market. If you have your eye on the Apple Series 5 Watch, here’s what you need to know.
First things first: let me apologize to the fine folks at Keyport for my delay in writing this review. I received a set of Keyport’s Anywhere Tools all the way back in February. I put them on my keys, hoping to get some real-world use out of them before writing my review.
TCL may not be top of mind for smartphones and smartwatches, but they’re hoping to be with a new smartphone and a smartwatch aimed at seniors, both debuting at IFA this week!
Technology improvements creep downwards from cutting edge to every day to eventually being aimed at kids. It’s inevitable that as smartwatches become more popular, kids are going to be interested. Doki sees an opportunity here for a way to offer kids what they want while keeping it age-appropriate with their new watch, the dokiPal.
We are in a golden age of smart wrist-based devices. You can have what amounts to a teeny tiny computer strapped to your wrist, or you can have a basic pedometer. There’s also the in-between, the devices meant to do one thing very well and that do ancillary items as a bonus. The Runtopia S1 exemplifies that type of device.
The big news out of MWC 2019 has been folding phones, but they’re so last week. Nubia Alpha is the next big thing, because it’s your phone, your smartwatch, AND a stylish bit of jewelry!
The most painful thing about wearing a Wear OS smartwatch is that at best (and with few exceptions), you can expect maybe a day and a half of battery life. This means no sleep tracking unless you want to remove your watch at some point during the next day to charge it. The Huawei Watch GT offers a compromise.
If you’re looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for someone you care about and want to impress with little effort, we have a list of products that go beyond chocolates, flowers. and dinner out you should consider before it’s too late.
I’m no numismatist, but I love the idea of wearing jewelry that features coins because they are tiny pieces of art that have both a historical significance as well as an intrinsic and extrinsic value. That’s why the Stauer Morgan Silver Dollar Mens Watch so naturally caught my eye.

For the past few years, I’ve used KeySmart, one of the best ways to efficiently hold my keys in place, so I was surprised to find out that they had released a more updated model of the KeySmart, in leather. The company sent me over a sample to review so let’s see how life’s been while using it.
In case you haven’t heard, the Apple Watch Series 4 has been released – and it is getting rave reviews, which it deserves because it is really an excellent smartwatch. I will detail some of the features I love about this watch later, but first I have to express some annoyances.
Today is shaping up to be an exciting day because Huawei is finally revealing their new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Rather than the all-metal bodies that previous Mate versions utilized, the Huawei Mate 20 series now has a stunning all-glass body reminiscent of the flagship P20 and P20 Pro. But that’s just the beginning…
Even though I rarely need them, I’m a sucker for a good pocketknife. I have a small one I keep on my keychain, and I have a cool fish-shaped one I keep on my fishing rod bag. So of course I said yes when offered the chance to check out the Urbanoider, a compact EDC knife.
I haven’t watched American Horror Story: Apocalypse, but I’m assuming it’s relatively unrealistic. If they wanted to make it more realistic, the only thing left standing would clearly be Casio G-Shock watches. And probably Starbucks. But definitely G-Shocks. Casio has updated the already indestructible G-Shock line with the new GBA-800, which adds fitness tracking to general badassery.
Once, we had Withings, makers of fab health tracking devices and Health Mate, my favorite weight and fitness tracking app. Withings was acquired by Nokia in 2016, but four months ago the original co-founder, Eric Carreel, bought Withings back from Nokia. So now there is a new Withings logo and we get a new product, the Withings Steel HR Sport.
It’s kind of sad that summer 2018 is already behind us – but being able to open the windows in our house and enjoy some cool, fresh air is really lovely! To make the transition into fall a little cheerier, and to take advantage of the gorgeous weather, why not treat yourself to one (or more!) of these terrific outdoor-friendly items?
