Citizen CZ Smart Sport and CZ Smart Casual

Citizen has two new Google WearOS smartwatches at CES 2023, the CZ Smart Sport and CZ Smart Casual, which are differentiated by the case size and the design. Both come with a new wellness app called YouQ, which takes research into alertness and fatigue from NASA, then feeds it through some A.I. from the IBM Watson Studio, all to help you understand how your body is performing.

The Sport model has a 44mm case and a bold bezel around the 1.28-inch AMOLED screen. That bezel is also shared by the Casual model, except it’s wrapped up in a 41mm case with a more subtle design. Both smartwatches have a heart rate sensor on the back that also measures blood oxygen levels, a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, and a battery expected to deliver 24 hours of use. Prices start at $350, and both will be out in March.

Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition

The new Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition continues Fossil’s use of an e-ink screen and physical watch hands on its hybrid smartwatches, giving you the best of both worlds. E-ink consumes very little power, so you can expect two weeks of battery life. The physical hands give it a very watch-like look and ensure you can always see the time.

The smartwatch has a 44mm case size, and there are multiple styles to choose from — including a stainless steel finish, a black IP, and a gold finish too. The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition has a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen monitoring, automatic workout detection, and various fitness-tracking features. Fossil has not revealed the price yet.

Movano Evie

Renders of the Movano Evie smart ring.

Movano first showed its smart ring for women at CES 2022, but didn’t provide much detail about it at the time. For CES 2023, Movano has given the ring a name, the Evie, and detailed more about its quest for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. It also confirmed the ring will cost $300 when it comes out in 2023. Through its sensors, the Evie ring will measure your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and skin temperature.

Its hoped that FDA approval will come before the smart ring is released, as it will mean that it meets set standards for accuracy, making Movano’s Evie ring not only desirable, but also unusual in the consumer wearables space. We’ve also seen the design, which is split to make the ring more comfortable to wear all the time, even if your finger swells. Movano anticipates the Evie ring to be released during the first six months of 2023.

iTouch Air 4 and Active Jillian Michaels Edition

The iTouch Air 4 and iTouch Active special Jillian Michaels Editions.

Lifestyle wearables brand iTouch has announced a partnership with The Fitness App creator Jillian Michaels, who has also put her name on a special edition of the brand’s newest smartwatch, the Air 4. Exact details about the technical side of the smartwatch are limited, but we do know it has a larger touchscreen than the Air 3, an updated biometric sensor, 20 different workout modes, and a feature that lets you send a glowing heart icon to a friend. The feature is called the LoveTap, obviously.

If you buy the Jillian Micheals Edition of the Air 4, it comes with a 90-day subscription to The Fitness App, something that will also be included with the special edition of the iTouch Active fitness smartwatch. The exact cost of the Jillian Michaels editions hasn’t been confirmed, but will range from $75 to $115 when they are released in the spring.

Moto Watch 100

The Moto Watch 100 isn’t actually made by Motorola — it comes from a company called eBuyNow, which was also responsible for the last major Moto smartwatch release, the Moto 360 in 2020. The Moto Watch 100 is pitched as the most affordable smartwatch with fall detection. It also features a 24-hour emergency alert notification and response app, making it suitable for vulnerable people living alone.

It offers heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, fitness tracking, built-in GPS, a circular LCD screen, a silicone strap, and an aluminum case. The Moto Watch 100 works with iOS and Android, plus the smartwatch has water resistance to 5ATM. It joins the recently rumored Moto Watch 70 in the lineup and costs just $100. The Moto Watch 100 is available to buy now.

Oxa Life

Oxa Life sensors and clothing.
Oxa Life

Described as a wearable breathing system, the Oxa Life is a combination product consisting of a custom smart shirt or bra with electrodes and a sensor built into it, ready to measure your breathing, heart rate, and heart rate variability (HRV). It combines the stress-relieving benefits of mindfulness and crucial data about our heart and breathing to reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost recovery.

It’s certainly unusual, and its showing at CES comes after its successful Kickstarter campaign closed at the end of 2022. You can still order the Oxa Life package through the company’s website though, with the shirt and sensor together priced at 400 euros, or around $423.

eSight Go

The eSight Go are wearable smart glasses designed to improve vision for visually impaired people. Digital Trends looked at the eSight smart glasses at CES several years ago, and the new lightweight eSight Go model is designed to be easier to wear in more everyday situations. It uses a combination of cameras, lenses, and high-resolution screens to help those with central vision loss live more independently.

For the eSight Go, the company promises a range of new features and improvements. These include new software that’s easier to navigate, better image stabilization, and a portable and comfortable battery pack that’s worn around the neck, as well as a set of 12-megapixel cameras and OLED screens. The eSight Go is expected to launch in late 2023.

That’s all the CES 2023 wearables we have for you right now, but remember to take a loot at our selection of the quirkiest mobile gadgets at CES 2023 we’ve spotted too.

Apple Watch Series 9: the 6 biggest things we want to see
The Apple Watch Ultra with the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch SE 2.

The Apple Watch Series 8 was a bit of a boring release for Apple’s wearable, as it wasn’t a huge upgrade over the Apple Watch Series 7; Apple seemed to spend more energy focusing on the Apple Watch Ultra instead. The only real upgrades for the Series 8 were the newer-generation S8 chip and a new body temperature sensor, though the use cases for that are pretty limited. But if you didn’t have a Series 7, then the Apple Watch Series 8 was still a great upgrade for those coming from older models.

We’re still a few months away from Apple revealing the next generation of Apple Watch with a Series 9 model, which is most likely coming sometime in the fall, along with the iPhone 15. But until then, here’s what I’m hoping Apple will put in the Apple Watch Series 9 when it finally comes out.

iPhone 15: release date and price predictions, leaks, rumors, and more
iPhone 15 render by 4RMD

As great as the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are, they're both already a few months old at this point, and the rumors about the iPhone 15 are well underway. We still have several months before the iPhone 15 models drop, though, as Apple usually makes iPhone announcements in the fall. In other words, there's still a lot of time for rumors to circulate around the internet.

We're keeping all of the reports and rumors of the iPhone 15 here in a single place for your convenience, but do remember to keep in mind that these are all still just speculation. Nothing is final until Apple confirms it during an official announcement. Still, a lot of the rumors give us an idea of what to expect each year, which is unfortunate if you like surprises. Here's everything we know of the iPhone 15 so far!

These Android apps are spying on you — and there’s no easy way to stop them
Illustration of a giant eye stalking through a phone

Android’s security woes need no introduction, but another threat that hasn’t received its fair share of awareness relates to spyware and stalkerware apps. These apps can secretly be installed on a victim’s phone to monitor their activity and can be exploited to harass victims of domestic abuse and engage in online stalking. All someone needs is physical access to the victim's phone to install these apps, which is not too difficult in cases of domestic abuse.

Call it an app-fueled version of AirTag stalking, but on steroids, because these spyware apps can steal everything including messages, call logs, emails, photos, and videos. Some can even activate the microphone and the camera, and secretly transfer these recordings to a remote server where the abuser can access it. Since Google Play's policies don't allow stalking apps, these apps are sold via third-party websites and need to be sideloaded.
