The LG Watch W7 would be a hybrid timepiece, hoping to bring together the best of both worlds on your wrist.

Here are my thoughts on the Redmi 6 after spending some time with it.
The smartwatch world has certainly come a long way since it the idea of it was conceived in the previous century. The Pebble smartwatch really kicked things off big time, but discontinued a couple of years ago as the company ran into turbulent times. While a smartwatch does boast of an array of features and functionality, there is one major drawback: the battery life. This is where the niche of a hybrid smartwatch was born, and the NOWA hybrid smartwatch from France would prove to be a classy addition onto virtually any wrist.
