The mVoice G2 is not any ordinary smartwatch, but rather, this is the first hybrid smartwatch of its kind that will boast of a smart display alongside traditional watch hands. It would make it quite the novelty, don’t you think so? This is exactly what makes us so enamored with the mVoice G2, where it features a timeless and preserved watch design that offers smart access to the wearer to virtual assistants, apps and others using all but a simple voice command.
Who would have thought that mainstream fashion label DKNY would end up churning out their very own smartwatch for the masses? Yet, this is exactly what happened, and the first smartwatch from them would be known as the DKNY Minute. Now available for interested parties, the asking price of the DKNY Minute stands at $155 and goes upwards from there. This is a representation of the dynamic synthesis of style and technology, where the latest hybrid smartwatch technology will work in tandem alongside a classic DKNY watch style. Oh yes, it is meant for the ladies only, so the men will have to sit out on the DKNY Minute.
It has taken less than a year after materials science pioneer Matrix Industries’ crowdfunding effort took off to great success, and now the shipment of its PowerWatch to initial backers has commenced. This highly sought after PowerWatch is touted to be the first device of its kind, in the sense where it is powered by the wearer’s body itself. This is the perfect demonstration of Matrix’s proprietary thermoelectric energy converter, where the energy harvesting performance of the PowerWatch can be attributed to a trio of key technical advances that are currently unmatched by existing technologies.
Casio’s G-Shock has long been the gold standard for affordable timepieces that are extremely tough and more than capable of handling just about anything that you throw at it. There is a constant improvement in the kind of G-Shock models that hit the market, and the newest two models under the MR-G connected watches from G-Shock will boast of 3-way time sync connectivity.
A smartwatch more often than not comes with its very own collection of features apart from simply telling the time. It will, most of the time, be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, alerting you of any incoming messages or phone calls so that you know who is contacting you without having to go through the trouble of taking out your smartphone from your pocket. However, smartwatches have far less battery life compared to their standard issue counterparts, for one simple reason: the processor within, screen time, and other chips require plenty of juice compared to just having a few hands ticking away. Why not harness the power of the sun? This is exactly what the deal is with LunaR, a solar-powered smartwatch that has been launched on Kickstarter.
The humble watch used to be a tool to tell the time, but over the years, it has ended up as a fashion statement, one that could even cost more than an entire house if it is studded with jewels and other kinds of precious gems. Well, the watch was said to die a slow death with the introduction of smartwatches, but such a prediction has proven to be otherwise. The luxury line of watches continue to sell well regardless of the economic climate among the well-heeled and famous, while the regular watch maintains its market share as smartwatches struggle to break into the mainstream consciousness and being a “must have” item on everyone’s wrists. Casio forges on with its very first connected watches for men, the G-Shock G-Steel line.
Timex is well known for rolling out GPS watches for the sports enthusiast, and with the $99 Timex Ironman GPS watch, their latest effort is no different. In fact, Timex claims that it is going to be the most simple GPS watch that they have launched to date, and we are simply not surprised at all with that claim. In fact, it boasts of the latest antenna technologies alongside an easy to use interface which would appeal to just about anyone, be it a seasoned triathlete or your everyday fitness enthusiast who would like to get a spot of running, swimming and cycling in from time to time.
Not all timepieces are created equal. Some of them happen to be far more advanced than the others, and K-ICT Born2Global Centre’s vision for a unique device that is not only capable of telling the time, but also to ensure protection for the wearer arrives in the form of the Carah safety watch. Of course, the Carah safety watch will continue to remain a dream if it is not fully funded on Kickstarter, but we do believe that it is definitely on the right track. The Carah comes across as a real analogue watch that features smart capabilities as well as a built-in SOS safety alert.
Timepieces are more of a fashion accessory these days than a tool that we use to tell the time. Sure, watches are useful to wear, but the traditional time telling method has been more or less made obsolete in the cities and urban areas thanks to our smartphones and computers that provide a constant reminder on what time it is. However, there is still room for watches, as smartwatches have proven that it is not going to phase out the old school timepieces, which is why we are excited to bring the Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch to the consciousness of everyone else.
When it comes to smart watches, most of the time we would think of the Apple Watch. After all, it is the marketing juggernaut from Cupertino that has pushed smart watches into mainstream consciousness, and while Apple continues to maintain a level of secrecy over the sales numbers of their Apple Watch, other industry players such as Huawei have also jumped aboard the bandwagon. However, there are other players that are in the smart watch market as well, and Sequent is one interesting proposition for those who intend to get their feet wet without wanting to commit a whole wad of cash upfront. What makes the Sequent smart watch so special?
