Hungry? No problem with Domino’s pizza on your smartwatch

Hungry? No problem with Domino’s pizza on your smartwatch

The idea behind smartwatches is that they become your bridge to your smartphone for instances when you can't dig out your mobile device from your bag or pocket. That is why they have mostly been relegated to simple, one off tasks like notifications, quick replies, reminders, or accepting/rejecting voice calls. They're not usually meant to replace your smartphone, but that might just be what Domino's is aiming for by letting you order a pizza right from the convenience of your Pebble or Android Wear smartwatch.

Pebble Time Steel revealed plus smartstrap sensor add-ons

Pebble Time Steel revealed plus smartstrap sensor add-ons

It's only been a matter of weeks since Pebble showed us its new Time smartwatch, and already there's a second, metal-bodied version, the Pebble Time Steel. Echoing the second-gen original Pebble, which wrapped the guts of the first, plastic wearable in a more premium casing, Pebble Time Steel comes in stainless steel casing and has a larger battery than its cheaper sibling. Meanwhile, the Kickstarter success has also revealed exactly what it has in mind for "smartstraps" for the new Time and Time Steel watches.

Pebble and Windows phones: a tale of what could have been

Pebble and Windows phones: a tale of what could have been

Pebble's new stab at another Kickstarter, this time for the sleeker, more colorful Pebble Time, has renewed interest in one of the pioneers of smartwatches. While Pebble supports both Android and iOS, one of the few smartwatches to do so, it leaves out a portion of the mobile world out in the cold. Granted, the number of Windows Phone users might pale in comparison, but there are always some voices and arms raised in supplication for support. Though things looked hopeful for a while, the reality might be harsher.

Withings Activité Review – Smart gets Stylish

Withings Activité Review – Smart gets Stylish

Rather than a smartwatch, how about a watch that’s simply smarter? Smartwatches and fitness trackers have long tried to borrow from the traditional horological handbook, but tech usually trumps style; heck, the specter of the Apple Watch may loom over all wearables, but even Cupertino’s wrist-candy needs no second glance to be mistaken for something different from a regular watch. Could salvation come from France by way of Switzerland, and the Withings Activité? With a price tag higher even than Apple’s, and a spec list conspicuously shorter, the Activité needs more than just its coveted “Swiss Made” branding, but after two months of it on my wrist, I've realized it has some unique charms of its own.

Pebble Time beats Kickstarter goal in 15 minutes

Pebble Time beats Kickstarter goal in 15 minutes

As of the publishing of this article, Pebble Time will have beaten its goal nearly twice over in its first hour being online. This Kickstarter project mirrors the original Pebble release, this time coming with a device with a color display and three unique color options for the device's border and band. There's a black watch case with silicone band with black PVD stainless steel bezel, white with silver, and red with black - all with the same functionality and specifications, of course.

Pebble Color edition: this is (likely) the new lineup

Pebble Color edition: this is (likely) the new lineup

Details surrounding the rumored color display-toting Pebble have leaked this morning just hours before the final, official reveal by the company itself. This smartwatch is very similar to its predecessor, this time coming with a display that includes color. The physical appearance of this device is unlike its predecessor in that it rolls with a slightly more "sporty" feel - but the buttons are still there, and the strap still looks rather rubbery. The operating system inside may have quite a bit of a change-up.

Exploding Kittens the new Kickstarter backer champ

Exploding Kittens the new Kickstarter backer champ

While the Exploding Kittens card game didn't raise the highest amount of money in Kickstarter history - they were 3rd - they did gather the most backers. At around $35 a pop, users were invited to take part in this crowd-funding campaign which offered a card game similar to War. This new-age War game has users flipping over cards with cartoons on them illustrated by the same fellow who illustrates The Oatmeal. That proved well and above enough for quite a few backers over the past month, that's for certain.

Pebble celebrates 1 million sales with a renewed battle cry

Pebble celebrates 1 million sales with a renewed battle cry

With a million smartwatch sales under its belt, it's hard not to take Pebble seriously. In the face of the onslaught of newcomers like Google's Android Wear, pioneer Pebble stood its ground and refused to become just "another" smartwatch company. Bracing for the storm that Apple is brewing, the indie smartwatch darling is renewing its commitment not just with the prospect of new smartwatch models but with a new software platform that promises to be unlike anything else you've seen in the smartwatch market today.

Sony tipped to be considering an “all e-ink” smartwatch

Sony tipped to be considering an “all e-ink” smartwatch

Smartwatches might be useful, at least to some, but their battery lives are nothing to write home about, given the available space you can cram a battery into. Some smartwatch makes, most notably Pebble, have opted to stay with the colorless but more power-efficient e-ink types of display. Based on an insider source, Sony might be eying something similar too, but with an intriguing twist. It won't just be the watch face that will be using e-ink, but the whole wrist band itself as well.
