Amazon is currently offering up to $150 off Huawei Watch with prices starting at $299.99 shipped. Select models also available at Best Buy and Newegg.

Here’s a look at the full selection of discounted prices on this iOS and Android timepiece:

The Huawei Watch features a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal display and stainless steel body. It is iOS and Android compatible, so you’ll be able to get all the latest notifications from your device. Aside from over 4,000 Android Wear apps that are available for this watch, you’ll have access to fitness tracking with built-in heart rate monitoring. We positively reviewed the Huawei Watch when it was released year, calling it the “new standard for Android Wear.” Rated 4.4/5 stars by 592 Amazon customers.

We first told you about What? Watch back in November as it released a new take on smartphone-connected timepieces. Now, four months later, What? has jumped on Kickstarter with its Calendar Watch in hopes of raising $100,000. That goal was easily surpassed within a few days.

Why so much interest? The Calendar Watch has a built-in display behind the face that visually blocks out busy sections of your day. For example, have a business lunch at noon? That piece of the pie on your display will be color coordinated to reflect your unavailability. Add an event later this evening? It will update automatically and show those changes. On top of it all, it’s a pretty good looking watch…

We’ve been inundated with smartwatches and wearables over the last year. Now, 2015 is coming to a close with one more new release. This morning, the Omate Rise Standalone Smartwatch for iOS and Android launched on Indiegogo. In just a few hours it has doubled its initial goal and is beginning to sell out of inventory.

You see, Omate differs from many crowdfunding projects that go on for weeks and even months at a time. This campaign is set to conclude before the end of the week with just over 1,000 units available. With a $199 price tag, it’s no surprise that backers are snatching Omate up while the campaign is still live. More details below.

The BLOCKS modular smartwatch hit Kickstarter today and in just a few short hours it has flown past its initial $250,000 goal. There was a lot of hype initially surrounding its launch, which has proven to be well deserved.

BLOCKS was first teased back at CES with a promise of hitting the crowdfunding circuit this summer. The build-your-own watch offers a unique alternative to Apple Watch and Android Wear examples that are largely limited in function by their software capabilities. Although it took a little more time than originally expected, today’s response has been through the roof. Head below for more details.

Timex is taking another stab at fitness tracking. After releasing its One+ GPS fitness tracker a little over a year ago, the popular watchmaker is back with a new smart timepiece. The Metropolitan+ removes all the excess of Timex’s previously released tracker in favor of a classic design focused on long-lasting battery life. It will have all the looks and functions of a traditional analog watch with Bluetooth connectivity added in.

Even better, you’ll be able to avoid the overly technical look of some smartwatches with this model. Making it a perfect pair for more formal events.  expand full story

Olio announces new Gold and Rose Gold options for its luxury smartwatch

Olio first announced its new luxury timepieces for iOS and Android back in March, today they’ve returned with new models made from custom materials. Its latest watches are available in 24 karat gold or 18 karat rose gold. The company has paid extra attention to the details this time around, creating custom batches of the material for these limited edition devices.

The rose gold is particularly notable, when I spoke with founder Steve Jacobs last week it was easy to see the passion behind this medium:

“It’s not just a new color, we’ve developed a new alloy that was custom designed for us”, he said. “The rose gold is a little bit darker, more of a chocolate hue that really looks nice. We’re like a craft brewery or artisanal coffee shop in that we make small batches of high quality products.”

Olio quickly sold out of the first batch of its watches and is now ready to release a second run. This round will include 500 steel and black options, as well as 100 of each of the gold models. The new rose and yellow gold watches will retail for $1,195 with a leather band or $1,395 with a solid gold wrist-strap. These prices are a fraction of the cost that Apple charges for the Apple Watch Edition, with similar band options.

9to5Toys will be giving away a Olio Black Watch, valued at $745 in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for additional details on how you could win one for yourself.

expiredMoto 360, the best Android Wear Smartwatch, is on sale for $278 shipped in champagne gold (Reg. $330)

Amazon offers the Motorola Moto 360 18mm Android Wear Smartwatch in champagne gold for $277.52 with free shipping, which is a savings of 16% off its list price of $330 and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

In our opinion, the Moto 360 sits atop the Android Wear mountain:

The Moto 360 is the best smartwatch you can currently buy. If you’re thinking about buying one, go do it. Don’t look at the other Android Wear devices because they are inferior, at least for the time being.

… It’s a sleek and well-designed smartwatch that brings all the golden features we’ve seen with other solutions in the same space. I’ll continue to wear my Moto 360 until something better comes along, but even then, a smartwatch that looks this slick will be hard to ditch.

It doubles as an activity tracker and features Bluetooth 4.0 (low energy), a built-in microphone, various sensors, and a stainless-steel case. Use your savings to buy this Motorola charging stand.

Now that all the Apple Watch details are laid out for consumers, there is a big choice to be made for those interested in purchasing a timepiece with smart functionality. The Apple Watch will start at $349, with most of our readers electing for a $400 model, although early adoption levels seem to be low. If you’re thinking that a lower priced watch is more appropriate, it looks like you’re not alone. With the Pebble Time making a timely appearance on Kickstarter, many have chosen to back the lower priced option. In fact, following the Apple Watch keynote, Pebble saw a 167% funding increase.

Despite all the new releases and hype, the original Pebble is still capable of getting the job done at a more affordable price.
