The best-looking Android smartwatch, but not the best value.

The Android smartwatch ecosystem is improbably competitive again, after a couple years of stagnation where the Wear OS, née Android Wear, ecosystem was practically left for dead.

The invigoration came not from tech companies like Motorola or LG, which led the charge over four years ago, but from Fossil Group — owners of so many well-known watch brands it’s hard to keep track — and other lifestyle companies  [Read More…]

Amazfit Bip review: A $79 smartwatch that does it all

Look no further if you’re in the market for an affordable smartwatch.

The smartwatch segment is in continual decline, and although Qualcomm announced the Wear 3100 platform, we haven’t seen mainstream brands like Motorola or LG launch devices powered by the chipset yet.

Casio WSD-F30 hands-on: MrMobile’s favorite smartwatch gets an upgrade

For my money, nobody builds a better summertime smartwatch than Casio. The company’s ProTrek series has it all: alti-barometers, rugged casings, standalone GPS, and dual-layer displays that offer incredible readability in direct sunlight. Even occasional outdoorsmen such as myself can appreciate the ProTrek F10 and F20 for the sheer boldness of their oversized designs, while those in search of more petite wearables have understandably gone elsewhere.

With the ProTrek WSD-F30, Casio seems to have gotten the memo  [Read More…]
