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.

UnaliWear Kanega Watch: a wearable for the elderly

UnaliWear Kanega Watch: a wearable for the elderly

There's no shortage of wearables on the market, but their uses tend to be narrow, focusing on health, fitness, and bridging the land between your smartphone and your wrist. We've seen some devices crop up that tailor their functions to a more defined user base, but that user base is typically children. The UnaliWear Kanega Watch takes the opposite approach, targeting elderly users in particular with features that both facilitate independence while putting a caretaker's mind at ease. Medication alerts, directions home, and more are all available.

21 Apple Watch developers reveal their wares

21 Apple Watch developers reveal their wares

While the Android world is setting its eyes on MWC 2015 next week, those from the Apple camp are more fixated on late April. That is when the company will be fully launching the Apple Watch and when the world will finally get to see what Cupertino's take on smartwatches will really be. But as experience showed so far, a smartwatch is only as good as the stuff you can do on it, and some developers are now revealing the things you will be able to do once the Apple Watch hits the stores.

Hasbro rehashes Skip-it and Twister into fitness tracker

Hasbro rehashes Skip-it and Twister into fitness tracker

Depending on when your childhood took place, you might have an entirely nostalgic new fitness tracking option (it's meant for kids, but we won't judge): Hasbro has tweaked its popular Twister and Skip-it games/toys to have a health-centric slant. Skip-it, for those unaware, was that ball connected to your ankle by a loop; you skipped it around to make the number counter increase, something that seems exceptionally archaic such a short while later. And Twister, dare we say, needs no introduction.

Microsoft Band catches up with keyboard, cycling, and SDK

Microsoft Band catches up with keyboard, cycling, and SDK

You could be easily forgiven if you've forgotten, or more likely didn't know, that Microsoft just launched it's own smart fitness band. The company itself didn't make such a big fuss out of the Microsoft Band and it was probably smart to do so. The initial experience that we got from our review of the device was nothing to write home about. At least not yet. That was just the beginning, however, as Microsoft is now rolling out a bunch of updates, as well as an announcement, that could turn its first wearable into more than just a flawed promise.

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.

The Apple Watch Edition is not for you

The Apple Watch Edition is not for you

There's a lot of chatter right now on what sort of madness it'll be seeing the prices of the highest-end Apple Watch Edition devices this Spring. But check it out - they aren't being made to sell to the same people that buy iPhone 5c. The 18k gold Apple Watch Edition isn't going to be aimed at a person who doesn't buy the most expensive iPhone. Remember when it was insane to think that Apple would make a gold iPhone? That happened!

Apple Watch orders reportedly top 5 million for first retail push

According to the familiar unnamed sourced, Apple has reportedly asked suppliers to provide between 5-6 million Apple Watches for their initial push to retail. The sheer volume of the order suggests Apple is preparing for massive onslaught at retail stores, which will likely bring lines much like we see with iPhone releases. Apple is also keeping themselves grounded, and have reportedly asked for half of those orders to be the entry-level Apple Watch Sport, with much of the rest going toward the Apple Watch.
