honor magic watch review feat

Honor Magic Watch hands-on review

Honor has taken the Huawei Watch GT and made it a little smaller, designed it a little better, and come up with the Honor Watch Magic. The alterations are winners, for the most part, and we’ve tried the various different versions on to see if it’s a worthy alternative to Huawei’s own fitness-focused smartwatch.
Mobvoi Ticwatch S2 review

Mobvoi Ticwatch S2 review

The Mobvoi TicWatch S2 is not the best looking smartwatch you’ll strap on your wrist, but it may be the toughest, and it’ll almost certainly be the cheapest. At $180, it has an astonishingly complete feature list that’ll appeal to anyone who spends time hiking, running, or swimming. We’ve been wearing it to see how it performs.
Mobvoi Ticwatch E2

Mobvoi TicWatch E2 review

Want a smartwatch that can track heart rate, has GPS, and allows you to interact with notifications? Mobvoi’s TicWatch E2, which runs Google’s Wear OS platform, can do it all, for just $160. It only lacks NFC for Google Pay, but the thick body packs a bigger battery that lets it stay on for more than a day.
Garmin VivoActive 3 Music

Garmin VivoActive 3 Music 4G LTE Verizon hands-on review

Garmin takes its already great VivoActive 3 Music fitness smartwatch and adds a 4G LTE connection, courtesy of Verizon. The watch now has streaming music, independent GPS, and best of all, SMS support and various safety features. We’ve tried the watch out at CES 2019 to see what it’s like.
Kate Spade Scallop 2 Smartwatch review

Kate Spade Scallop 2 hands-on review

The new Kate Spade Scallop 2 smartwatch takes the successful original and brings it up to date with the latest wearable tech, and into line with the fashion brands latest clothes and accessories.

matrix powerwatch 2 review feat

Matrix PowerWatch 2 hands-on review

Matrix has unveiled the PowerWatch 2 at CES 2019. Building off the PowerWatch X, the new smartwatch packs more capabilities into a smaller, sleeker case -- that charges solely using body heat and solar rays. We take a first look at the PowerWatch 2 to see exactly what the device has to offer.
huawei watch gt review feat

Huawei Watch GT review

The Huawei Watch GT shows what Huawei can do when it ditches Google’s Wear OS and comes up with its own smartwatch operating system. The result is a stylish watch with amazing battery life, and some strong fitness tracking features, but with some surprising omissions that limited the device’s audience.
lg watch w7 review feat

LG Watch W7 Review

The LG Watch W7 is a Wear OS smartwatch, but it differentiates itself from the pack by offering mechanical watch hands. We appreciate LG’s efforts to try something new, but the execution on the W7 is flawed. At $450, the price is also steep for the limited features available on the smartwatch.
Mobvoi TicWatch C2 full review

Mobvoi TicWatch C2 review

The Mobvoi TicWatch C2 smartwatch may be powered by an older Qualcomm chip, but it does pack all the fitness features you need -- including built-in GPS along with a heart-rate monitor -- and it runs Google’s newly designed Wear OS. For $200, it’s a sleek-looking smartwatch you’ll want to wear everyday.
Polar Vantage V review

Polar Vantage V review

Polar’s new Vantage V is a high-end fitness tracker with more features than you can shake a stick at, and an updated look to compete with the best looking smartwatches out there. But with no actual smartwatch features at launch, can the fitness veteran really compete? We’ve reviewed it to find out.
michael kors access runway review

Michael Kors Access Runway review

The Michael Kors Access Runway boasts important health and fitness features, all packed into a beautiful case. While it includes Google’s newly redesigned Wear OS, it doesn’t include Qualcomm’s latest chipset. Is it still worth the purchase? We take a closer look.
Apple Watch Series 4 home screen.

Apple Watch Series 4 review

Apple already ruled the smartwatch market with the Apple Watch Series 3, but the Series 4 elevates it to new levels with more screen, a sleeker design, and a world-first electrocardiogram app that lets you keep tabs on your ticker.
Montblanc Summit 2 Revoew

Montblanc Summit 2 review

Montblanc’s Summit 2 is the first smartwatch to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor. It’s feature packed with GPS, NFC for Google Pay, and a heart rate sensor, but it also has a classic timepiece design that will leave you questioning whether it really is a smartwatch. It’s expensive, but it’s the luxury smartwatch to buy.
Skagen Falster 2

Skagen Falster 2 review

Skagen unveiled the Falster Wear OS smartwatch earlier this year, and not even a year later the Falster 2 has arrived. It’s still one of the most beautiful smartwatches available, and the new model adds NFC, GPS, and a heart rate monitor. Our Skagen Falster 2 review explains why this is among the best stylish smartwatches around.
Fossil Sport Review

Fossil Sport review

Fossil has released its first-ever smartwatch featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100. For $255, each quirky-colored version of the smartwatch comes packed with a heart-rate sensor, built-in GPS, and more. We took the Fossil Sport through its paces to see whether the new technology lives up to the expectations.
misfit vapor 2 review feat

Misfit Vapor 2 review

Misfit’s next-generation smartwatch, the Vapor 2, packs built-in GPS, a heart-rate sensor, and more, into a beautiful design. Even though it’s a fashionable smartwatch, it’s still comfortable enough to work out with. We take a closer look at the company’s new device.

fossil q venture hr

Fossil Q Venture HR review

Starting at $255, the Fossil Q Venture HR brings along top-notch health and fitness features -- including heart-rate and built-in GPS -- without having to sacrifice style for everyday wear. We take a look at what it has to offer, and take Google's newly redesigned Wear OS for a spin.
Suunto 9 Smartwatch

Suunto 9 review

Adventurers and ultrarunners love Suunto's multi-sport GPS smartwatches because of their long battery life. The new Suunto 9 pushes the power envelope ever further delivering a mind-blowing 120 hours of continuous tracking. Does the watch live up to its hype? We went out into the wild to find out how the Suunto 9 stacks up against the competition.
Skagen Falster review

Skagen Falster review

After six months, the Skagen Falster is still our favorite Wear OS smartwatch. It doesn't have a lot of features, and it doesn't have good battery life, but we're mesmerized with how it looks -- and can't keep it off our wrist. The Falster shows the importance of design in a smartwatch. Here's our review.

Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 review

Casio’s second-generation smartwatch -- the Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 -- features a GPS sensor, along with the same outdoor tools as last year’s model, such as an altimeter, barometer, and compass. It runs Wear OS, which means you can also access your notifications. The new WSD-F20A model adds a new color.
samsung galaxy watch review 46mm feat

Samsung Galaxy Watch review

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch has almost everything and anything you’d want in a smartwatch. We’ve been wearing this watch for more than a week, and we’ve managed to stretch the battery up to four days. Say goodbye to one of the biggest pain points about smartwatches. Here’s our Galaxy Watch review.
marc jacobs riley touchscreen smartwatch review feat

Marc Jacobs Riley Touchscreen Smartwatch review

The Marc Jacobs Riley is Marc Jacobs’ first fully-touchscreen smartwatch. It runs Wear OS, has a large 1.9-inch display, and features an eye-catching design. But at $295, it’s pricier than other women’s smartwatches on the market. We take a closer look to see if this smartwatch is worth the high price tag.
Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro

Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro Review

How does adding another display panel to a Wear OS smartwatch end up increasing the battery life? Amazingly, that’s what Mobvoi has achieved with the Ticwatch Pro, which has an OLED panel and an LCD panel to maximise the life out of the watch’s battery. Does it work? We’ve been wearing it to find out.
Casio GPW-B1000 Rangeman

Casio GPR-B1000 Rangeman hands-on review

Casio’s latest Master of G series watch is the GPR-B1000 Rangeman, which has built-in GPS and solar charging, plus smart features and mapping through an app on your phone. It’s also the best looking version yet, and we’ve tried it out.
tag heuer connected modular 41 review feat

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41 review

Luxury smartwatches have been somewhat disappointing so far, with high prices, massive cases, and not a lot of reasons to buy one. Tag Heuer’s Connected Modular 41 overcomes previous problems to increase the desirability, but it’s still pricey compared to most others. We’ve been wearing one to see if it’s worth the extra.
Suunto 3 Fitness Black Review

Suunto 3 Fitness Review

To stay relevant, fitness tracker brands need an ace in the hole. For the new Suunto 3 Fitness, this comes in the form of Adaptive Training Guidance. A feature designed to put a personal trainer on your wrist and develop custom weekly workout plans – and it’s as impressive as it is innovative.
Kate Spade Scallop Touchscreen review

Kate Spade Scallop Touchscreen review

The Kate Spade Scallop is Kate Spade’s first fully-touchscreen smartwatch for women. It runs Wear OS, has a large 1.9-inch display, and is extremely customizable. But at $295, it’s pricier than other women’s smartwatches on the market. We take a closer look to see if this watch is worth the high price tag.
Mobvoi Ticwatch E Review

Mobvoi Ticwatch E review

At just $160, Mobvoi’s Ticwatch E is one of the cheapest full touchscreen smartwatches you can buy, and it hasn’t skimped on the feature list, offering both a heart-rate sensor and GPS. This elevates it beyond watches that cost twice as much. We’ve worn one to see if the low price means corners have been cut elsewhere.
misfit path review feat

Misfit Path review

The Misfit Path is Misfit’s smallest hybrid smartwatch, yet. But don’t let its size fool you – it comes packed with tons of smartwatch features all wrapped into a modern and chic timepiece. You can receive notification alerts, track your activity, and more, all for an affordable price.

Mondaine Smart Helvetica review

Mondaine Smart Helvetica hands-on review

Swiss watch maker Mondaine is ready to release a new smartwatch, the beautiful Helvetica Smart. The classy style hides sensible smart features, backed up by a strong app, making a very desirable overall package. We out it on, and didn’t want to take it off.
