    Pebble Time Round Review – White face edition

    Pebble surprised everyone soon after the Kickstarter for the Pebble Time ended with the announcement that they’d developed a round version of their iconic watch. To ensure Kickstarter backers weren’t put out by this they allowed backers to order the round at a discounted price, and if you didn’t like it you could send it…

    LEMFO LF06 Smartwatch Review

    When sent this budget smartwatch for review the expectations were set rather low, after all just how much could they pack into a £50 smartwatch? Things got off to a bumpy start as the watch didn’t allow for an initial language selection and wasn’t set to English by default. Fortunately the icons helped easily track…

    iFit Active Fitness Tracker Review

    The iFit activity tracker is a lightweight activity tracker that comes with accessories to allow you to wear it both on your wrist (like a watch) or clipped to your trousers.

  • Martian Notifier Smartwatch

    Martian Notifier Smartwatch Review

    Martian Watches recently unveiled their new smart watch, the Notifier, at CES 2015.  Rather than a full blown screen on your arm that stands out as a smartwatch, the Notifier has been designed as a traditional looking watch that happens to have notification features. In fact anyone glancing at your wrist wouldn’t think anything of…

  • Huawei B1 TalkBand1

    Huawei B1 TalkBand Review

    The Huawei B1 TalkBand is an interesting take on the wearable activity tracker.  It doesn’t just track you movement and sleep but it also features a detachable bluetooth headset! This detachable headset also acts as a screen which displays 4 screens of information: 1) Bluetooth status, time and battery level 2) Pedometer reading 3) Estimated…

  • Withings Pulse O2

    Withings Pulse O2 Activity Tracker Review

    The Withings Pulse O2 joins the growing number of activity trackers available but has an additional trick up it’s sleeve: it can measure the saturation of oxygen in your blood via a built in oximeter. Provided to me for review I was impressed with what a nice, light, little unit it is and that it…
