ASUS heads to watch shops with VivoWatch

The device you're about to see does not run Android Wear. This is the ASUS VivoWatch, and it's bucking the trend set by its competitors by running its own unique operating system.

Apple Watches appear in fashion stores, ready for April 24

In all the heyday and obsession over the availability and ordering process for the Apple Watch, many interested buyers might have forgotten about one other venue for getting their hands on the smartwatch.

Why I do not plan on buying an Apple Watch

Why I do not plan on buying an Apple Watch

I don't own an iPhone. I really could end this train of thought with that, but here's what's more: study after study has shown that most people planning on purchasing an Apple Watch also have an iPhone. Many of those people also wear a watch on a regular basis. Apple is in a pretty good position to displace the watches on the wrists of iPhone users over the next few weeks, as it were. But for me - there're really no way I'd end up with an Apple Watch on my wrist.

Swimmo smartwatch is a wearable for swimmers

Swimmo smartwatch is a wearable for swimmers

We’ve seen wearables in the past that are created for a specific type of user, such as Garmin’s smartwatches for golfers. Now Swimmo has created a new wearable by the same name, the Swimmo smartwatch. The wearable is made for swimmers who want to track their activities using a bit of smart technology on their wrist, which in this case will keep track of data on things like how many calories are burned and distances travelled.

Apple Watch now shipping (sort of)

Apple Watch now shipping (sort of)

The first pre-orders for Apple Watch have been seeing charges to credit cards as of this morning ahead of Friday's full store launch. Apple Stores across the country will be making the Apple Watch available while try-on appointments have been available for the past week.

It's likely we'll see shipment statuses switch from "processing items" to "preparing for shipment" very soon.
