Tory Burch is back with a new ToryTrack smartwatch after more than a year away

It has been more than a year since American designer brand Tory Burch released its first smartwatch, the ToryTrack Gigi, and now for 2020, it is back with the ToryTrack Tory Smartwatch. While the name may not trip off the tongue like the 2018 ToryTrack Gigi’s does, the smartwatch has been given a visual update that loses some of the generic styling of the Gigi and adds some recognizable Tory Burch design touches instead.

Most noticeable is the crown on the side of the watch case, which has an octagonal design to match some of Tory Burch’s jewelry, and the two buttons that flank it. These are strict rectangles, which seem to follow the use of blocks and straight lines visible in the designer’s clothing and handbag range too. The face is circular and the case comes in either gold, rose gold, or a blue color. The buttons and crown are gold across all models.

The strap appears to be made from silicone, making it suitable for most situations, as it shouldn’t get uncomfortable and sweaty when worn at the gym. The case measures 40mm and the screen is 1.2-inches with a 390 x 390-pixel resolution. On the back of the case is a heart rate monitor and the body itself is water-resistant to 30 meters, so it should be swim-proof, just like many other watches based on the Fossil Gen 5 platform.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed by Tory Burch, it is highly likely the ToryTrack Tory will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 platform, but it’s not clear how much RAM will come with it, although we’re hoping for 1GB. This makes Google’s WearOS software perform much better than with smaller amounts of RAM. WearOS will make use of the watch’s NFC for contactless payments, plus Google Fit for fitness tracking. The battery should last for around a day, but Fossil’s additional battery-saving modes can extend this if you’re happy to do without some power-consuming features.

The three Tory Burch ToryTrack Tory Smartwatch models are available to purchase on the company’s website now. It’s yours for $295, which is slightly less than the ToryTrack Gigi in 2018. It faces stiff competition from Kate Spade’s colorful and sporty KSNY Sport Smartwatch, which was announced in October 2019 and is priced at $270.

mobvoi ticwatch pro 4glte review 4g lte 20

Mobvoi's Ticwatch series are among your best choices for an affordable smartwatch with basic fitness tracking features running Google's Wear OS platform. But it doesn't just offer budget models -- the TicWatch Pro is notable for its sleek look, great price, and extremely long battery life. Now there's a new TicWatch Pro in town, and it's rocking a 4G/LTE connection -- though the network access won't be enabled until a month after launch.

Despite that hiccup, there's a lot to explore here. Here's everything you need to know about the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE, and check out our hands-on review for more in-depth impressions.
4G/LTE connection
The TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE's biggest new feature is right there in the name -- thanks to the ability to connect to 4G mobile networks, the new TicWatch is capable of functioning independently of a smartphone. Or rather, it'll eventually have that ability. Unfortunately, the feature won't be enabled on launch due to compliance issues with Verizon's 4G network. Instead, it will be turned on a month after the phone launches, on August 10. Until then, you'll still be able to use the watch on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Fossil is preparing 5 new designer smartwatches, and we can’t wait to see them
diesel on full guard denim straps news 25 2

New designer smartwatches are coming soon from Fossil, if listings on the FCC’s website are to be believed. Some detective work by suggests the watches will be released under the Diesel, Michael Kors, Emporio Armani, and the Fossil brand names. Fossil is responsible for all these designer smartwatches, along with models from Kate Spade, Skagen, and Misfit.

The FCC is certifying the new watches for use with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and therefore isn’t revealing much about the specifications and nothing about the designs — which are the most important aspects of a smartwatch. What we can see is a selection of model numbers, all of which begin with DW10, followed by another letter that signifies the brand name associated with the watch.

Tag Heuer’s Golf Edition smartwatch is a lot more than just a flash of new color
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 4G Golf Edition

Tag Heuer has announced a special-edition Connected Modular 45 smartwatch that's aimed squarely at those who spend many hours on the golf course, and want to stay ahead not only in the game but also in technology. Called the Golf Edition, it should not be dismissed simply as a new color scheme, because it’s a lot more than that.

When we first heard it was based on the Connected Modular 45 smartwatch, rather than the Connected Modular 41, we were a little disappointed. The Modular 45 -- so-called because it has a 45mm body -- was always too heavy, and a little ungainly. The smaller 41mm Modular 41 has almost perfect proportions. However, the Golf Edition is different from other Modular 45s, as it’s made from titanium and covered in a black PVD finish.
Strong, but light
Titanium is strong but light, and it makes a big difference in the way the Golf Edition feels on your wrist. It’s still quite large, but the improved aesthetics around the bezel makes it appear less bulky. Combine this with the lower 64-gram weight, and it’s definitely suitable for wearing everyday, or for hours on the golf course. Take note of the bezel’s design too, with 18 numbers referring to the amount of holes on a course. It’s made from ceramic, so those white lacquered numbers won’t fade, and a sheet of sapphire crystal covers the 400 x 400 pixel screen.
