The key point here isn’t necessarily the number of apps the Apple Watch has, though, it’s their overall quality. As with the iPhone and iPad, the Apple Watch app market is choc-full of really great apps and that’s really rather incredible, given the very little real estate (screen size) developers have to work with on smartwatches. And so, coming up with a definitive list of the top Apple Watch apps for 2016 wasn’t easy, but we reckon the apps listed belo..

When it comes to smartwatches for women, we’ll admit there’s not a huge variety to choose from right now. To make a case in point, walk into a shoe store and you’ll find dozens of boots, dozens of heels, dozens of flats and plenty of accessories to try on. Walk into any high street electronics store, and you’ll probably find an Apple Watch on display, select FitBit and Pebble products but little else. That’s where we are at right now as the high street reacts to a new and developing market. The good news, however, is that while there isn’t an awful lot of choice out there in the stores ..
Thought smartwatches weren’t going to catch on? Think again. For the first time ever, smartwatch shipments have exceeded Swiss watch shipments according to research by Strategy Analytics. In Q4 2015, smartwatch shipments peaked at 8.1 million units while Swiss watch shipments peaked at 7.9 million units, marking the first time in history that smartwatches have out-shipped Swiss watches on a global scale. But it isn’t the result of this research that’s interesting (we all knew that smartwatches were going to out-ship Swiss watches at some point) - it’s how fast it has happened. Apple ..

“Fashion comes and goes, but style lasts forever” is a quote from Gabriel “Coco” Chanel made during an interview with journalist Joseph Barry in 1965 for McCall’s magazine. For some reason, that quote really resonates with me as I cast gaze over the smartwatch market today. Some 51 years after being spoken, it just sounds so right and so true; fashion comes and goes, but style lasts forever. Will there ever be a smartwatch that transcends its lifecycle, in a way that will prove Coco Chanel’s quote just? You could argue that perhaps the Apple Watch will become some kind of icon. What we ca..

Tissot are one of the most well respected watch makers in the industry. With rich heritage they introduced the first mass produced pocket watch and are now part of Swatch Group Ltd.
