September 19th is the confirmed date for the launch of the new Mate 30 series of phones. At this time, its not clear what the situation will be regarding the inclusion of Google services (and if not included, how easy it might be to side-load). Fingers crossed, there […]
I have to say it was a bit odd to return to the same venue this year for the latest smartwatch from Samsung. The seventh if you count its very first prototype from 1999. The same venue, same stage in the circular auditorium, same presenter and most of […]
I was going to start with the phrase ‘third time lucky?’ but then realised just how stupidly successful Pebble has been on both occasions it used the crowd-sourcing service to get funds to build some smartwatches. It’s around an hour since Pebble unveiled a new collection of devices […]
Last week I attended the lavish launch of Huawei’s new smartwatch, which has been talked about for so long that you could be excused for thinking it has been on sale for months. The event, held at the Mondrian boutique hotel, in London, brought together the world of fashion and […]
On my trip to IFA as a guest of Huawei, I’ve been seeing rather a lot of their smartwatch. It’s not a brand new watch – it was announced early in 2015 – but at its recent press event, it has announced the release of the watch outside of a […]
Samsung officially took the covers off the Gear S2 watches last night, revealing at the same time that these Tizen based watches will now work with Android smartphones – although without some of the functionality. The new watch has a rotating bezel and is available as a classic […]
I’ve had my ‘Kickstarter Backer’ Pebble Time for about two weeks now, and in that time I’ve had people asking when I’ll finish my review. It’s fair to say that I should have written my thoughts earlier, but I wanted to try a few things out properly. See […]
My Pebble Time is here! Just over 12 hours from when I got my initial shipping notification from DHL that it had left Ireland, which more than makes up for the extra fee I had to pay to avoid the standard 4-6 week shipping from Hong Kong. Naturally I couldn’t […]
Earlier today The Verge wrote a very interesting article about the new Apple Watch, revealing just how many people reviewing mentioned the same thing; that the new Apple Watch is ‘not for everyone’. Was it just a coincidence, or might there be another reason? It’s easy to come up with […]
At 3pm UK time, Pebble unveiled its new smartwatch, called Pebble Time, and the company has returned to Kickstarter to attract investors in the watch that is due to go into full scale production in time for a May release.
The Verge has today reported that Pebble shipped its one millionth Pebble at the end of 2014, as well as revealing plans to launch new watches in 2015. This is great news, as hearing very little from Pebble for some time had me wondering if all was well at […]
