Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was ever-so-slightly more difficult to work with than its competition. Here in 2015 you have the choice of a replaceable strap with the Moto 360 (2015 edition) with a more traditional set of watch strap arms or using the Sport, a watch with one strap that's attached directly to the bulk of the watch.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.

Swatch VISA pay-by-wrist release date tapped for early 2016

Swatch VISA pay-by-wrist release date tapped for early 2016

VISA announces with Swatch that they'll be doing a sort of team-up effort in the not-so-smartwatch business. They'll be rolling with NFC in the strap of the watch line Swatch Bellamy. This has to do with an author by the name of Edward Bellamy who wrote a novel in 1888 by the name of "Looking Backward 2000-1887". This novel envisioned "a utopian world in which cash has been replaced by credit/debit cards," the first recorded mention of such a technology.

Mario watch by Romain Jerome is the perfect $19K Christmas gift

If you're an old-school Mario fan, or need the perfect Christmas gift for someone who is, look no further than this limited edition Super Mario Bros. watch from Romain Jerome.

Pebble Time hits Woot – bad news for the watchmaker?

Pebble Time hits Woot – bad news for the watchmaker?

It would appear that Woot just got a shipment of Pebble Time smartwatches in for their fire sale department. What's this mean for the watchmaker? It might mean little. It could be that one distributor or another just received more Pebble Time watches than they could sell. It could also mean that Pebble is planning on axing the rest of their stock of this particular watch in favor of the original (black and white model) and the more circular of the bunch.

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition’s cancellation: details on a tragedy

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition’s cancellation: details on a tragedy

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition has a bit of a hardware issue - one large enough that after just a week on the market, it's been pulled from shelves indefinitely. What's this mean for people who already own it? And what does this mean for LG, a company that's been releasing highest-end Android Wear watches since the very start of the Android Wear platform? Likely very little, as it were - and the watch itself might just end up heading back to stores early next year. Don't worry.

Apple Watch owners are Kickstarting a string strap

Apple Watch owners are Kickstarting a string strap

Today we've come across a crowd-funded accessory that'll work for most any smartwatch, but is aimed at the Apple Watch in particular. This accessory is essentially a series of pieces of die-cast zinc, twine strands, and a bit of silicone rubber. While the actual execution may seem like a strange use of $30 USD, the concept is sound. While it may look strange, the space between the base of your thumb and your index finger is the ideal place to glance for a smart watch face.

Seiko is re-releasing Ripley’s iconic watch from ‘Aliens’

Listen up Aliens fans, your chance to own the watch worn by Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley is coming soon. Japanese watchmaker Seiko has announced that it's making a limited re-release of the Giugiaro 7A28-7000. Originally sold in the early '80s, the timepiece was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Italian car designer, and while its looks fit in perfectly with futuristic sci-fi setting of Aliens, the watch wasn't produced just for the movie. Rather, it was the movie that made the existing watch a hot commodity.

Withings Activite Steel: fitness smarts with a touch of class

Health wearables-maker Withings is back with its third fitness-tracking analog watch: the Activité Steel. The French company debuted the original Activité last year, releasing an impressive wearable that focused on being a premium timepiece before a bulky smartwatch.
