The first-generation Huawei Watch (launched 2015) was one of the best smartwatches on the market at the time. The second-generation Huawei Watch 2 (launched 2017) was, and still is, one of the best smartwatches on the market today - especially the Sport version with its neat ceramic bezel and sporty design. What we’re saying is Huawei has a track record for launching brilliant smartwatches, and they’ve announced two new ones for 2019. The Huawei Watch GT Active and Huawei Watch GT Elegant are updated versions of last year’s Watch GT. Huawei Watch GT Active and Huawei Watch GT E..
The Tag Heuer Connected has proven to be very popular with folk who hit the green. So much so, the Swiss brand’s announced the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition, an updated version of the standard device. The Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition has a brand-new golfing app which is preloaded with 39,000 international golf courses. Using GPS to track your location, it notifies you when you’re close to a golf course and automatically recognises which course you are on so you can get teed up without faffing about. It shows you a map of the course you’re on, recommends an iron, and l..
Hybrid smartwatches sacrifice functionality over their touchscreen brethren in return for stonking battery life. They tell the time like a normal watch but collect data like the number of steps you take behind the scenes. This information is then accessed on your smartphone via a companion app. The relationship works well but you’re always left with the feeling the device on your wrist could do more. Citizen think the same. Which is why they’ve just launched the Citizen Eco-Drive Riiiver, a hybrid ‘connected’ smartwatch that can do more. Riiiver (yes, three i’s, which stand for “imagine..
Hot on the heels of luxury timepiece brands launching high-end smartwatches (like the Montblanc Summit and Tag Heuer Connected) Garmin have launched their own high-end smartwatch line with an adventurous vibe. The five smartwatches (Aviator, Driver, Captain, Expedition, Athlete) are targeted towards pilots, ship captains, explorers and athletes. In other words, the cream of the crop. They stand out from ordinary smartwatches through a set of unique features which are model specific. We’ll take a closer look at these below. MARQ Aviator The MARQ Aviator is for pilots. It lets..
More and more parents are choosing to buy their kid a smartwatch so they can stay connected with them while they’re out. The best kids’ smartwatches also offer location-tracking or let parents set up geo-boundaries. What this is all about of course is parents keeping tabs on their children and being there as quickly as possible in an emergency. Kids aged between 5 and 10 are too young for a phone so a smartwatch is the next best thing. If you’re considering a smartwatch for your own kids, the TickTalk 3 is one of the standout devices of 2019. We came across this device while carrying..
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is one heck of a smartwatch. It’s so good it’s one of our early contenders for the best smartwatch of 2019. For a snip under $200 you get top-end hardware and (in our opinion) a better software experience than you do on Wear OS right now. That’s because the Galaxy Watch Active runs Tizen, Samsung’s own OS and it just does notifications and gestures better. We were worried when we heard Samsung had ditched the rotating bezel of last year’s Galaxy Watch, but that has proven a shrewd move (lightness, baby!). Blood pressure on the Galaxy Watch Active..

The fully-round display is beautiful. Apple’s squarish display is nice. But with most smartwatch displays coming in at under 1.4”, they’re hardly ‘immersive’. Enter then Nubia, a Chinese manufacturer best-known for their smartphones. They have launched a new smartwatch this week at MWC. It’s called the ‘Alpha’ and it’s packing a 4” display - enough to make the competition blush that’s for sure. The 4” display is a flexible OLED panel with a resolution of 960 x 192. What that means is it literally wraps around your wrist. The ultra-wide aspect ratio is unique and so is the display concep..
