Everybody’s on about Hyperloop these days: For the non tech ones, Hyperloop is a huge aqua park ride with a shinkansen inside – the Japanese bullet train. Just kidding, but it looks like.
Joke aside, Hyperloop was a concept – at that time – introduced by a South Africa-born tech investor, who made a fortune from PayPal and now the CEO of Tesla cars, Mr. Elon Musk right back in 2013 when he published a white paper explaining how the future of public transportation will be.
Is the idea of Hyperloop something new? Yes and no. In 1957, it was predicted that folks would travel through pneumatic tubes by the year 2000 but more about the “history [...]
Whether you want to see the date, time in London, or tomorrow’s sunrise, there’s a watch Complication to show it. In traditional watchmaking, ‘Complications’ are the extra parts of information displayed on a watch face. They can be as simple as today’s time and date, or as complex as phases of the moon.
That Apple chose to name the extra display options on its Watch after the traditional watch term is emblematic of its approach. It was decided from the beginning that the Apple Watch would be a traditional watch first and wrist-worn computer second.
Industrial design boss Jony Ive spent months asking for advice to some of the world’s [...]
Fossil is joining the wearables landscape as the company just revealed its first Android Wear smartwatch, developed in partnership with Intel and Google.

The biggest attraction was the long awaited [...]
Alcatel OneTouch Watch is Alcatel’s first attempt in the smartwatches market and this transpires at times.
After wearing this smartwatch for the past week, I can say I’ve cracked “the code” in Alcatel OneTouch Watch. Alcatel is neither the best smartwatch nor the most accurate fitness tracker and in all fairness, this is its wonderful secret: A compromise.
Alcatel OneTouch Watch does not claim the best spot in above mentioned categories but wins as “cheaper” than most smartwatches and more “fashionable” than most fitness trackers. This is WT VOX review of Alcatel OneTouch Watch.Alcatel OneTouch Watch Review: Design [...]
Jawbone UP3 is – in my opinion – the best looking fitness tracker available. Like the old Jawbone models, this one can measure steps, burnt calories, sleep pattern and as an extra feature can measure resting heart rate as well. This last feature, is really the key differentiator between the Jawbone UP3 and the devices released by Jawbone to date. Unfortunately, it can’t be used for “on-demand heart rate measurement” at least for now.
Jawbone is proud of it. They say that the UP3 is the world’s most advanced activity tracker that they’ve created, packed with lots of sensors and new features.
In its original plans, Jawbone intention was [...]
