For many tech fans, Pebble represented the "other" smartwatch company. Unlike juggernauts like Apple, Google, and Samsung, Pebble didn't generally get the same amount of attention in the media - but there was something unique about this company that made it particularly appealing. Pebble had always been a smartwatch brand funded by the people - for the people. When the Pebble brand first appeared in 2012, there wasn't much of a smartwatch scene to work with. However, the OS-agnostic and open approach of Pebble helped it to maintain a long-standing status as a wearable hero. As we mov..

If you've been asking Santa for a new Motorola smartwatch this Christmas, then you'll need to switch up your list, as the next Moto 360 smartwatch is unlikely to be released before the spring. At the beginning of December, we learned that Moto would be avoiding launching a new smartwatch alongside the release of Android Wear 2.0 in early 2017, and now the company's plans for new devices seem uncertain at best. The company has highlighted its decision to stay away from the smartwatch market during the festive season, and won't be launching a new model until well into 2017. Whe..

Martian Watches has recently added Alexa home voice control features to its line of "mVoice" smartwatches. The mVoice smartwatch already allows wearers to enjoy a range of fantastic features using nothing but voice commands - a futuristic solution for many technology fans.

Style and practicality have always been components of Swiss design. In the world of jewelry and timepieces, Swiss creations have often acted as status symbols for the rich and fashion-conscious. Though Swiss watches have always been regarded as a sumptuous fashion icon, many popular brands are trying their hand at the modern revolution, and getting involved with time-pieces from a more tech-heavy perspective. Since smartwatches have become more than just gadgets to many people - and indeed represent fashion statements to the masses - it only makes sense that Swiss smartwatches would be ..
Strapping one of the latest pieces of smart technology to your child's wrist makes more sense than you might think these days.

The idea isn't for you to stalk your child - but to ensure that they're equipped with a tool for absolute safety always. In addition to GPS functionality, you might also like to consider a smartwatch that’s waterproof. A waterproof GPS wa..
Google doesn't often have a reputation for trailing behind other manufacturers when it comes to technological development - however it seems that in the smartwatch world, the company has been failing to keep to the cutting edge. For months now, Apple users have been able to pay with their products using their Apple Watches, and Samsung users can even accomplish the exact same results with Samsung Play. Unfortunately, Android Wear users have been forced to linger disappointingly behind the rest of the tech - or use awkward workarounds to get the right results. Fortunately, it seems that ..
One of the biggest hurdles preventing people from purchasing a smartwatch, is the worry that they'll need to plug-in their timepiece every day just to use it on a regular basis. Since smartphones require charging at least every day to work, it makes sense that a smartwatch would need equal maintenance. However, a recent development, known as the "Matrix PowerWatch" could have the answer we've all been looking for. Crafted from aircraft-grade aluminium, and capable of syncing with Android or iOS, the PowerWatch charges using nothing more than body heat. How Does It Work? So..
When the iPhone emerged onto the market for the first time, its touch-screen and button-free interface blew consumers away – it created a brand-new way to interact with our phones, and looking at the phone market today, the rest is history. Since the introduction of touchscreen displays, we've never looked back to the days of clunky buttons even once. Sometimes, a new interface appears, and we simply can't imagine a device working any other way. Right now, the smartwatch hasn't quite achieved that "lightning bolt" idea moment, but researchers at Dartmouth College think they've found ..

Today, it seems that the world's best and most expensive smartwatches have screens covered by a single, highly durable material: sapphire crystal. Not only does it sound as though it's high-quality, sapphire crystal is also extremely hard (sapphire is the second strongest jewel on the Mohs mineral hardness scale), making the watches with screens that are made from this material practically scratch-proof under normal use. In other words, with a sapphire watch screen, you can rest assured that your smartwatch investment will stay protected for years to come. What's the Benefit ..
