AT&T brings back the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Ed LTE

It's not yet even near the second half of the year, but we're not one to complain about extremely early good news. At least hopefully it's good news. LG promised that its second Watch Urbane smartwatch would indeed be going back to the market, but it seems that it will be happening earlier than promised. AT&T has once again put the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE up for pre-order. Presuming it isn't just a fluke, it gives hope that LG has finally resolved the issues that led to the smartwatch being unceremoniously pulled out shortly after launch.

Samsung, de GRISOGONO to make a luxurious Gear S2 smartwatch

Samsung, de GRISOGONO to make a luxurious Gear S2 smartwatch

If you thought that Samsung is over its jewelry obsession, better think again. It may have curiously skipped Swarovski this time around, but this diamond-laden smartwatch isn't going to be less luxurious. Or expensive for that matter. This time, Samsung has partnered with famed jewelry and watchmaker de GRISOGONO to co-create, not merely co-brand, Samsung insists, a special, limited-edition Samsung Gear S2. Naturally, this is more a fashion statement than a simple smartwatch, blending the latest in wearable technology with some of the most luxurious materials and stones in the fashion world.

Fossil Q Motion is like a rebranded, redesigned Misfit Ray

October last year, fashion outfit Fossil revealed its first generation of wearable accessories, including an Android Wear Q Founder smartwatch. A month later, it acquired Misfit, a company that specializes in smart fitness wearables and software. Its intention was pretty clear. It needed Misfit's expertise in wearables to augment its own portfolio. Barely half a year later, Fossil is revealing its first wearable since that purchase, the Fossil Q Motion. Interestingly, it is a dead knocker for Misfit's own Ray, announced just last January.

Fitbit Blaze is now available for purchase

They say looks can be deceiving and that might apply very well with the Fitbit Blaze. What looks pretty much like a smartwatch actually isn't. Unequivocally a fitness tracker, the Blaze just happens to come with a few more bells and whistles than normal and a display to make those worth your while. Despite meeting with a bit of skepticism, even falling stocks prices, when it was unveiled at CES, Fitbit forged ahead and has finally put the Blaze on shelves, available for purchase online as well as in partner retailers' stores.

Joule Wearable Caffeine Patches Review : Better Than Coffee

Joule Wearable Caffeine Patches Review : Better Than Coffee

Over the past several weeks I've been testing out Joule, a system of wearable caffeine patches that administer the drug gradually rather than all at once. With coffee or soda I'd have been getting high and getting low within an hour. The sugar crash happens, I'm back below where I was when I started. What the folks making Joule have suggested is a fix. Not just a short burst of energy, but a lengthened distribution of caffeine through my skin.
