GEAK Watch wants to be the first true Android ‘smartwatch’

While wearable technology and computing is really starting to take off, I've found myself struggling with the idea behind a smartwatch. I've admitted I'm not a fan in the past, but this new watch from a Shanghai-based company called the GEAK Watch has my attention. Why you ask? Because it claims to do so much more than most of those other so called "smartwatches" we've seen in the past.

Google Nexus smartwatch concept has us dreaming for the future

I have a confession to make. I'm not a fan of the entire smartwatch idea. Especially after trying out the Pebble, although our pal Robert Nelson loved it in his review. I just can't see myself actually spending my hard-earned cash on a smartwatch. However, this new concept (not real) video of a Google Nexus watch might change my mind. We'll just leave this here for you to enjoy for the weekend.

Pebble watch goes waterproof after raising a million bucks

Yesterday we brought you news of the Pebble smart watch project on Kickstarter, and almost immediately the organizers reached their $100,000 goal. They've raised just a bit more than that since then: a million dollars in just a little over 24 hours, and almost 1.5 million at this point. To celebrate thier success, they're adding in an extra feature. When the watch enters production later this year, it'll be waterproof. The organizers say that it won't be a dive watch, but you'll be able to shower or swim with it without worry.

Pebble combines Bluetooth smart watch and e-paper in Kickstarter campaign

Smart watches are finally starting to catch on, but unfortunately, they're all pretty expensive - not to mention bulky. One Kickstarter project aims to change that with a lowered featureset and Kindle-style e-ink technology, bringing both the size and the price down to something a little more manageable. The Pebble watch is currently in the concept stage, but with a Kickstarter campaign that's nearing completion, it looks like it'l be hitting stores before the end of the year.
