Maker of $6,700 Android phone says the Apple Watch lacks prestige

Since Apple unveiled its brand new smartwatch just a few days ago, key individuals in a number of related industries have felt the need to weigh in on whether or not they think it will be a success. One man with a less than favorable outlook is Jean-Claude Biver, who oversees the TAG Heuer, Zenith...

Apple Watch: Apple's smartwatch redefines the market

The rumors were true, and although we didn't actually see the device or any single hint of it before today, the iWatch exists, and it's called "Apple Watch." Tim Cook just showed off the device for the first time with a video that showed a variety of health software and other apps, as well as a pl...

The iWatch is dead, long live the iWatch

Up until Apple officially unveils a wearable, this little beauty is a close as any of us have ever gotten to an Apple smartwatch. The 6th generation iPod nano is still a pretty impressive little device, and with the ability to view photos, track calories burned, count your steps, play music and re...

TUAW Liveblog of the Apple Event 9/9 starts at 12:45 PM EDT

Tomorrow's going to be, in the words of Star Trek's Mr. Spock, "fascinating". Nobody really has any idea what Tim Cook and friends are going to announce, although we're pretty sure that something that looks, feels and works like an iPhone should be given top billing. And then there's that building...

If Apple announces a wearable that's not available until next year...

It'll be genius*. In no small part because, as of right now, no one has reported seeing a single millimeter of the device. If Apple shows off what it has been cooking but delays manufacture until later this year, it will also be one of the bigger tactical shifts for Apple during Tim Cook's tenure....

The smartwatch bar is embarrassingly low, and it's Apple's for the taking

Smartwatches suck. They're crap. Shite. Excrement. Doo-doo. Pretty much universally, the wrist-worn devices we've seen so far are too big, too clunky, and overall a massive disappointment. That could change on Tuesday, when Apple will have a captive audience for one of its most important events in...

The New York Times today published a report claiming that the highly anticipated iPhone 6 will come with a "one-handed mode" to enable easier operation on account of what is rumored to be a larger display.

We don't know anything about the iWatch, and why that's friggin' awesome

I'll go ahead and say it -- Apple media events over the past few years have lost a little bit of their magic. To be clear, this isn't the result of Apple stagnating on the innovation front, but rather due to the fact that every month we're bombarded with leaked photos of product casings and logic ...

Apple's September event may be its most significant event in years

Let's be honest. There's something different in the air about Apple's upcoming media event, now officially confirmed for September 9. Before getting to what products might be announced, it's worth noting that this year's event will not be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts or on Apple's C...

Mark your calendars, folks. September 9, 2014 is primed to be an exceedingly busy day.

The iWatch/Swatch rumor that was, and then wasn't

Citing an anonymous source, VentureBeat yesterday posted a spurious report claiming that Apple has been working with Swiss-based watch manufacturer Swatch in an effort to release a varied number of iWatch designs. Apple has been working with at least one partner, Swatch, to release a line of sma...

Apple awarded iTime wristwatch patent

We don't typically publish Apple patent stories since, well, Apple tends to patent everything under the sun. But with the evidence mounting that Apple is working on a wearable device slated for release later this year, a newly discovered patent detailing an "iTime" smartwatch is worth highlighting...

About those iWatch sales projections

While Apple by most accounts is working on a wearable device of some sort (unofficially and already dubbed the iWatch), the number of conflicting reports about what the device will be able to do and how it will look is astounding. One day, the iWatch is coming with a 2.5-inch display. A few weeks...
