The Connected is based on Skagen’s popular Hagen watch, which itself is an ultra-modern and sleek timepiece. The Connected, as such, looks incredible in renders although we are still holding out for case dimensions and crystal specifications, to assess whether or not the Hagen Connected can become a must-have smartwatch in a crowded market where nothing but perfection cuts it now.

As any parent would tell you, life is hard with young children. It’s enjoyable, fun and fulfilling, but it’s hard. So when something comes along that makes life a little easier – such as Bonjela for teething, or the Amazon Fire tablet for quenching boredom – it can be absolutely wonderful. So today we hope to introduce you to the next big thing – or what has the potential to be at least. It’s called Octopus, and it’s a smartwatch for children. Octopus Octopus is an educational timepiece for children aged 3 to 8 years old. Unlike other smartwatches on the market, this smartwatc..
If you are a fan of premium styling but you don’t have the spare cash or desire for more costly brands, then we have found the perfect alternative for you. It’s called the Mlais Android 5.1 Smart Watch and it is very similar to the big names as far as looks are concerned. The 43mm 316L stainless steel case is a dead-ringer for more expensive smart watches on the market today but at half the price. Exceptionally it sports a full-round display without a ‘black bar’ at the bottom. Available in three colours to suit all tastes with steel or leather band options. It wouldn't look out of p..
When one is in the market for a luxury timepiece, one might pay their local Omega or Rolex boutique a visit. Or if we are talking really high-end stuff, then one might make an enquiry with the likes of Patek Phillipe, Greubel Forsey and Richard Mille. Depending on how ‘luxurious’ you want to go, when you step into the world of luxury watches spending £100k is nothing. Smartwatches meanwhile are comparatively cheap and while they might not have automatic movements laced with precious metals or complications, they do offer greater functionality and, in cases, comparable build quality. ..
In an era of digital technology, today’s children have arguably the best tools at their disposal to make something of their lives. However, it can be all too easy for children to become immersed in their digital lives and fail to recognise the world before theirs – a world where analogue reigned supreme and a world that still plays a huge role in society today. Analogue watches are a perfect example of this. In a study conducted by DiscountWatchStore.com last year in the Bronx, NY area, it was found that just 1 in 5 children aged 6 to 12 could tell the time on an analogue watch properly..
It didn’t take long for smartwatches to capture the imagination this year. Several key fashion companies, designers and watch brands announced a smartwatch in January. Some companies, such as Fitbit, decided to use CES 2016 as their launch platform. The traditional watch brands made their play at the jewellery and fashion focused Basel World 2016. While others decided to keep things a little lower key with an announcement on their blog. Since then, several other players have joined the mix too. All of which is to say we have a lot to look forward to this year in the smartwatch world, wh..
The Apple Watch 2 is without any doubt one of the most highly anticipated tech releases this year. When Apple launched their first-gen Watch in September 2014, the pre-orders started flooding in and by the time they started shipping in April 2015, Apple had so many orders that were struggling to keep up with demand. Of course, the Apple Watch 2 is expected to eclipse the demand for the first-gen Watch as has been the case with all Apple’s products in recent years. Rumours have fed this demand ever since the first-gen Apple Watch was launched. But what can you expect from the Apple Watch..
Rumours have circulated this week that the Apple Watch 2 may be 20 to 40 percent thinner than the current generation, after Wall Street analyst Brian White finished up his tours into the electronic factories in Asia that manufacture the wearable. In research notes released via MacRumours, Whyte predicts that the Apple Watch 2 will be significantly thinner than the outgoing model. The first-gen Apple Watch’s thickness is 10.5mm and 10mm for the 38mm and 42mm versions respectively. This compares favourably to its competitors, with the HUAWEI Watch coming in at 11.3mm, the Moto 360 2nd gen..
The Abu Dhabi Police love a little extravagance. Around this time last year, they splashed out and added one of the rarest supercars in the world to their fleet, the Lykan Hypersport, which joined a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, BMW i8 and Bugatti Veyron in the force’s garage. Their funding is huge – so it makes no wonder that they are to be equipped with smartwatches, which for all intents and purposes are small change to the police force. The smartwatches are to be issued to serving police officers for health monitoring and to promote better performance. The project is called “Sm..
There’s big news this week as a patent released by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), originally filed in September 2014, shows that Apple may be looking to incorporate breakthrough safety technology in their smartwatch the Apple Watch. The patent and how the system would work The patent released by the USPTO describes in detail a system capable of interpreting environmental and user data to transmit alerts and the safety technology, which would use the device’s sensors to detect emergency situations, could in theory detect car accidents, muggings, falls, he..
