by in Feature Articles .

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. ..

Helping Children to Tell the Time

by in News .

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..

Apple Watch 2 Roundup: Every Next-Gen Feature to Expect

by in Feature Articles .

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..

Police officers to receive health monitoring SmartWatches

by in News .

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..
