Best Moto 360 Watch Straps

0
Moto 360 Watch Straps

If you’ve just picked yourself up one of Motorola’s second gen Moto 360 smartwatches, it’s essential to add a top-looking strap to make it your own.

 

The problem with most smartwatches is that while looks are improving all the time, the straps are often an afterthought. This was the case with the original Moto 360, which came with a rather lacklustre leather band.

 

Motorola has since upped its game with the Moto 360 2, which not only is available in three different sizes – 42mm and 46mm ‘mens’ options and a 42mm ‘womens’ female – but also now features stylish lugs either side of the circular body to easily attach one of the best Moto 360 watch straps.

ISAW EXtreme Action Camera Review

1

IMG_0002 copyIt was the arrival of the original GoPro HD that saw action cameras come of age.  Before then, they’d been chunky affairs, lacking quality optics and the rugged requirements of an action-addict. Since then,  lots of imitations of the GoPro have surfaced, though few have managed to compete with the quality of the diminutive action camera. Enter: The full HD ISAW EXtreme action camera.  Is this the camera that could finally take it to GoPro? Read on to find out.

Narrative Clip Review

1

NarrativeGifIn early Autumn 2013 we started seeing the new wave of wearable cameras make their way on to the market, with the Autographer from Oxford Metric Group leading up the charge.  In November I visited The Gadget Show Live @Christmas, where I had my first hands-on with the Autographer. However, it was a Swedish wearable camera that caught more of my attention: the Narrative Clip.

3

AppleAirportExpress (1)Apple’s Airport Express is a mystery device to some, and little more than an alluring Apple device to others. “What does it do?”; “Why is it better than my existing router?”; “Is it too much hassle to set up?”; “I think I’ll just stick to what I have”. All common questions or phrases consumers ask or say when finding out about it. In this article, I’ll look at five features about the Airport Express that are useful, and great to make people aware of, especially if someone is considering a network solution.

HTC BoomBass Speaker Review

0

IMG_0036 copyIn the words of The Fresh Prince, backed by DJ Jazzy Jeff, “Boom! shake-shake-shake the room, Tic-tic-tic-tic Boom!” And with that, I present to you an unusual smartphone accessory in the form of the HTC BoomBass.  It’s a Bluetooth speaker cube that pairs via NFC, and has a rather novel sliding base on which you can rest your smartphone. The curious part? It’s not a normal speaker. So if you own one of HTC’s One smartphones, keep reading…

Motorola Moto G Review

0

IMG_0002 copyMotorola was bought out by Lenovo in a surprise move that cost Google a few billion US $ earlier this year.  A strange move considering Motorola has started making some of the boldest moves since the company came out with the first so-called ‘Super-phone’, the Motorola Atrix in 2011. Boldest of all, the Motorola Moto G, the cheaper sibling to the flagship Moto X. It’s proven incredibly popular, but is it any good? Keep reading…

Swann PenCam HD Review

0

SWVID-PENBK4The Pencam “Spy-cam” is a beautiful writing pen (think Mont Blanc style), with a hidden 720p camera and microphone just above the clip.  Operated by a push of a concealed button, hidden LEDs indicate when you’re filming, which you can do for about 90 minutes. Unscrew the pen to reveal a USB stick with 4GB of storage and a simple way transfer your film/audio/pics to your PC. Initially I thought the Pencam was only for the most ardent gadget geek – would anyone in normal life ever want a pen that doubles as a camera?” After 2 weeks I’m a convert – read on to find out why!

Nude Audio ‘Move’ Bluetooth Speakers Review

0

IMG_0015 copy I admit it – I giggled like a child when I was offered the chance to look at the NudeAudio ‘MOVE’ Bluetooth speakers.  I presumed they’d be another set of speakers with more style rather than substance, though I’m happy to report I was largely surprised. There’s more than just a funky brand and lovely design at hand, so as the late Marvin Gaye would no doubt say… let’s get it on with the Nude MOVE in sizes medium and small.

PCTV AndroiDTV Dongle Review

IMG_0011 copyHauppauge have made a well respected name for themselves in PCTV devices for PCs as well as a range of capture boxes for gamers and video editors alike.  Last year they brought to market a dongle that enabled iPads and iPhones to pickup Freeview TV, and now it’s the turn of Android to get in on the party with its own TV-anywhere dongle (that works with Windows too!).  Is there really a need for such a device in the world of iPlayer and other streaming services?

IMG_0132IT’S CHRISTMAS! Or at least it will be in less than two short months.  I’m not one for pre-empting the joys of the festive season and tend to avoid anything festive until mid-December, but a chance to play with some of the latest tech due to hit our shelves is an opportunity I’ll never pass up.  After visiting The Gadget Show Live at the NEC earlier in the year I was eager to see what the Earl’s Court London event would have in store.
