Hamilton PSR brings back the Pulsar watch like it was the 70s again

Smartwatches are finally hot thanks to the Apple Watch and its life-saving health features. Some watchmakers are begrudgingly adding some hybrid smart functionality while some still cling steadfastly to classic analog and digital timepieces. Against this backdrop, the Hamilton PSR is both a breath of fresh air and an oddity. In giving homage to its visual namesake, it offers a watch that does one thing and one thing only: tell the time.

This $350,000 handless watch is a sly nod at Apple Watch excess

This $350,000 handless watch is a sly nod at Apple Watch excess

It may look like an Apple Watch, but H. Moser & Cie.'s Swiss Alp Watch Concept Black is something far more unusual - and far more expensive than even Apple's Edition-version of the smartwatch.

Official Apple Watch camera patent sees many ways at once

Assuming you've never seen a wristwatch-based camera before, the Apple Watch camera should strike you as a real wild idea. What better way to capture any and all things around you than to have a camera on your arm, right? But remember the original Samsung Galaxy Gear and you'll find the first big test of concept.

Withings Steel HR Sport Review: Analog style with a smart heart

Withings Steel HR Sport Review: Analog style with a smart heart

Withings wrote the book on making a fitness wearable that wasn't an ugly hunk of rubber on your wrist: now, it wants the Steel HR Sport to do the same for smartwatches. Freshly returned to original co-founder Eric Carreel after a stint as Nokia Digital Health, this first product under new management argues you don't need to sacrifice classic watch style just to get modern smart features.

The newest in a line of (two so far) Diesel smartwatches running Wear OS was revealed today at IFA 2018. This was the Diesel Full Guard 2.5, a smartwatch with a 47mm x 56mm casing - that's pretty gosh-darned beefy. But the display isn't any larger than most other smartwatches on the market today.
