Alcatel OneTouch Watch launches in White

Alcatel OneTouch Watch launches in White

The software-agnostic Alcatel OneTouch Watch has launched a new color this week - bringing white to the table where before there was black. This is the color we saw the watch in earlier this year, while the Black option was released to pre-orders just a few weeks ago. This smartwatch is different from the rest. It doesn't run Android Wear, it's not running Tizen - and it's certainly not an Apple Watch.

Some of the coolest products that we see around here come from crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. The problem with any project that turns up on these sites is that there is no guarantee no matter how legit it sounds or how much press the product gets that it will ever come to market. The most recent case in point is that slick CST-01 e-ink watch we saw back in 2013 at CES.

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

I don't have an Apple Watch around my wrist. Lets get that fact out of the way right this minute, since every other technology blogger in the universe seems - I emphasize SEEMS - to have one today on "launch day." The Apple Watch, like the iPhone and to a slightly lesser extend the iPad, is a herald of something greater. A new community, and a new way of computing.
