In what could be either the saddest or happiest thing you see today, a woman on a Korean TV show called Meeting You was filmed interacting with her dead daughter in VR.(more…)
Sleep tracking is an odd thing. It’s something I never really thought about, and then way back when I got my Fitbit (which I’m now over) I got interested in those numbers. I had grand plans, but it just basically was a way to quantify why I felt as tired as I did. While the DreamOn band will indeed track your sleep, it’s goal is to help you get to sleep more easily.(more…)
I’m late to the Apple Watch Series 5 game and I only bought mine last night. I’ve been putting off the purchase primarily because I’ve seen the 44mm on multiple wrists and the most common face, called Infograph, looked so odd. What was this abomination? Why were people using it? Why were there so many little circles?
I finally bit the bullet and ordered one and now I can unequivocally say that Apple’s watch face designs are awful.(more…)
Well, well, looks like I had basketball on the brain coming up with that headline. No, Skagen isn’t doing anything with the NBA (Tissot has that locked). Rather, they recently introduced a new version of their smartwatch, the Skagen Falster 3.(more…)
When I first got my Fitbit One, I wasn’t sure how it would it would fit into my life. I was more interested in the sleep tracking, but in the five years since that original purchase (and one replacement unit later) it because a regular, daily part of my carry. Silent alarms and steps and stairs tracking were great, but I’ve taken to re-evaluating things, and it’s time for me to say so long to this formerly trusty piece of tech.(more…)
As a consummate snorer I’ve always wondered how much I’m killing myself/annoying my wife at night. I found out by going to a doctor but the folks at Withings might have a better way.
Their new Scanwatch can sense when you’re suffering from sleep apnea and watch for heart arrhythmia, two silent killers. From the release:(more…)
Well, as you are no doubt aware, we are well into the swing of all of those year-end sales. It used to be Black Friday was a one-day thing, and now those sales are stretching across longer ranges. One brand that is giving you some extra time to decide is Misfit.(more…)
They slipped the watches in, all sneaky like and silent. Well, no, that’s not really the case – I got the email about the new releases just as I normally do. But unlike brands that don’t see fit to give their watches clever names (and hope the model numbers do the trick), Misfit didn’t just name their watches – they named the specific colorway they released. In this case, we’ve got the new “Ninja” palette gracing the Misfit Command and Misfit Path watches.(more…)
The Moto360 was the most memorable of the Android Wear smartwatches. Known both for its round screen and flat tire sliver at the bottom of the display. People loved it, but not enough to make it sustainable: Moto killed it off in 2017. But as we learned through 8 seasons of Game of Thrones applies: What is dead may never die.(more…)
Over the last year or two, I’ve reviewed a number of watches in the Casio ProTrek lineup. Those most prominently have featured their Triple Sensor technology, which give you compass, altitude/barometer, and temperature readouts on your wrist. Well, friends, we’ve now reached the realm of the (wait for it) quad sensor. What does this do, you ask? Well, read on for our review of the Casio ProTrek PRT-B50.(more…)
