The Cogito Classic from ConnecteDevice

As so-called smartwatches become more smart and less watch, they run the risk of losing some of the latter's charm and style. Building on the success of its Cookoo "connected complication" that combined analog movement with a connected digital display, Hong Kong's ConnecteDevice has released two versions of a new Cogito model – a Classic dress watch and a fun-loving design named Pop. Gizmag stopped by the company's booth at Baselworld in Switzerland for a closer look.  Read More

Most of the early smartwatches we've seen run scaled-down software designed for teeny-weeny screens.

Meet the Rufus Cuff, a "wrist communicator" that can pair with both iPhone and Android smartphones.  Read More
