    5 Wearables You Will Actually Want To Wear As Jewelry

    There are plenty of wearables out there that look, well, like a wearable. I much prefer an activity tracker or device to look like a piece of jewelry that I would pick out for myself and actually wear. Your money goes a lot further when you choose to spend it on something you will definitely […]

    The New Fitbit Versa Smartwatch Features Women’s Health Tracking

    In December 2016, one of the pioneers of the modern smartwatch ceased to exist. Pebble, once one of the greatest Kickstarter success stories, closed up shop, selling off some of their technology and intellectual property to Fitbit. It made sense for Fitbit — while their fitness trackers and bands have stuck, they haven’t managed to produce […]

    How She Made It: An Interview With Ava CEO Lea von Bidder

    In 2014, Lea von Bidder co-founded Ava with the goal of making it simpler for women to track their fertility window while trying to become pregnant. Ava did just that in 2016, releasing their wrist-worn fertility tracker – a device that, in combination with an app, calculates and tracks levels of hormones like estradiol to […]

    These Are the New Fossil Smartwatches That Need to Be On Your Radar

    I’ve got mixed feelings about wearables, and especially smartwatches. Anything worn is a very personal display of taste and style, and while wearables may or may not be useful depending on who you talk to, they all too rarely add style points (we’re usually happy if they just don’t take style points away). Part of […]

    ZTE Quartz Review

    The excitement surrounding smart watches has drastically died off, with many companies throwing in the towel altogether on their wearables. Yet, ZTE has finally come out with their first smartwatch – the Android Wear 2.0 powered ZTE Quartz. The company has purposely waited to enter the smartwatch market late in the game, so that much […]

    Senstone is a Wearable That Turns Audio Notes into Searchable Transcripts

    One thing I’ve learned over the years: good ideas usually don’t come at convenient times. Today, a new Kickstarter project is launching that promises to ensure no time is inconvenient. Senstone is a tiny, button-like wearable device that records audio with the press of a button. Rote stuff, but it’s the companion software that really […]

    The Samsung Gear S3 is Their Most Well-Connected Smartwatch Yet

    It’s hard for smartwatches to be as useful as they can be when they’re tethered to phones. Hard as it can be to leave a smartphone behind these days, sometimes it makes sense — if you’re running, or maybe if the phone’s dead. Or, maybe you forget the phone and you just want a connected backup […]

    Samsung Gear Fit2 Review

    It was way back in 2014 when Samsung first introduced the Gear Fit. Here in 2016, Samsung has finally followed it up with the Gear Fit2, a GPS fitness band with smartwatch features. The Fit2 comes with advanced fitness tracking, built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, the ability to sync with Samsung’s S Health […]

    These Stylish Italian Shoes Are Actually Connected Smart Shoes

    Looks like we won’t have to wait as long as we did with smartwatches to get fashionable connected shoes. Footmoov brought their kicks to CES 2016, and while the tech inside is nice, it takes a backseat to the stylishness and craftsmanship of the shoes themselves. Footmoov is an Italian company making connected shoes with […]

    Isaac Mizrahi Jumps On The Smartwatch Bandwagon

    Last week, we took a look at a new smartwatch HP and Titan introduced in India. Called the JUXT, that watch combined an analog watch face with a small digital display set behind the hands for displaying messages, notifications, and fitness information. JUXT was meant as a luxury option for men, but today, HP is […]

    The finger is the new prized real estate for this year’s technorati. You’re starting to see a batch of Pope-sized smart rings that you can wear proudly on your finger while you’re getting something useful done. One helps you shop, one helps you sleep, and one helps you stay in touch. While not exactly demure, […]

    Concepter Soul is a Wearable That Tells You Who Your Friends Are

    You’ll have to forgive Concepter for maybe not having the best pitch for their wearable, Soul — when I see ‘time tracker,’ I can’t help but think of a wearable gadget that has been around for, oh, a couple hundred years, give or take a few decades. But, Concepter has a different take on time […]

    Health Band Wearable Wants to Put an End to Nausea

    A solution to nausea that doesn’t involve pills that have side effects that are usually just as unwelcome as the nausea itself? That’s the dream for anyone who’s ever known morning or motion sickness, and it’s one that might come true next year if ReliefBand Technologies can deliver on its promises. Fresh off a successful […]

    Misfit BaubleBar is the Gaudiest Activity Tracker Ever

    As opposed to smartwatches, we don’t usually expect our fitness trackers to be this fashionable, but we’re not complaining. Misfit has partnered up with BaubleBar to create some jewelry-like lockets for bracelets and necklaces bearing the Misfit Flash, and the only thing we’re liking more than the looks is the name of the new line.

    With the holidays fast approaching, UNICEF has found a nice confluence of 2015 holiday gold — wearable technology and Star Wars — to help them get kids active in more ways than one. The UNICEF Kid Power Band is coming exclusively to Target, and while Star Wars might be the bait that hooks kids, there’s […]

    Misfit Shine 2 Is More Accurate, Smaller Than the Original

    The Misfit Shine, an early pioneer of the fashionable wearable, is getting a refresh this week. The Shine 2 is coming with improvements to both hardware and software, but still manages to shrink down the body — always a win when we’re talking about wearables. The Shine 2 won’t do much different, but will do […]
