I’ve always been obsessed with functional and fashionable gadgets, since childhood. My first stylish gadget was a pink smart watch with a flashlight & calculator that all my friends wanted to covet for themselves. Fast forward years later in a world where smart watches are being released every other day, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of the latest and greatest in gadgets. But how do you know which smart watch is right for you?
A few months ago, I was introduced to Martian Watches and their latest award-winning innovation the Notifier watch that was released in stores last month. Now that I have one on my wrist, it’s like my Girl Scouts moments all over again but this time it’s never coming off.
Check out why I’m in love with the new Martian Notifier smart watch below.
Simple style: The Martian Notifier is a classic analog watch with a simplistic feel that’s far from simple. The interchangeable bands keep up with my ever-changing style or I can keep it simple and monochromatic with my all-black timepiece that’ll go with everything!
The Martian Notifier is an attractive, colorful analog wristwatch with an integrated OLED readout that acts as a hands-free gateway to the world, keeping you well informed while your phone remains in a pocket, purse or backpack. This unique smartwatch gives you the ability to receive real-time alerts and notifications on your wrist. Used in conjunction with the free Martian Notifier App, you will automatically receive notifications — including Caller ID, texts, Facebook, Twitter, Weather, Email, Calendar, Instagram, Pinterest, favorite games, bank alerts, fitness stats, and any other alert your device allows. You can also initiate voice commands on your smartphone’s speakerphone for uses such as “read text” while you’re on the move.
Function: A touch of a Notifier button activates your smartphone’s speakerphone, enabling hundreds of voice commands to control music, check a sports score, get directions, search the web, create a reminder or appointment, and more. You can also decline an incoming call, set silent vibrating alarms that only you will sense, get a once-an-hour tickler to remind you to take a break, turn on an LED light to see in a dark room, control your phone’s camera shutter, and more.
You can now find Martian Notifier at Best Buy, Target, Bloomingdales, and Meijer! For more information on the Martian Notifier smart watch visit MartianNotifier.com and connect on Facebook, Twitter andPinterest today.
In a world filled with the latest in wearable technology, its refreshing to discover a smart watch that doesn’t skimp on style and function – and the Martian Notifier is it!
Martian WatchesTM, a California-based, award-winning developer of fashionable wireless technologies, including the world’s first Bluetooth® voice-command smartwatch, shared the debut of its new Martian Notifier™ line of smart watches last week in New York City. Martian Notifier was designed for the fashion- and cost-conscious consumer who wants a notification-enabled smartwatch without breaking the bank, for just $129.
Discover the Martian Notifier smart watch below:
The Martian Notifier line features a timeless analog design, customizable vibration patterns and an integrated OLED readout that delivers real-time alerts and notifications from the convenience of your wrist including Caller ID, Calendar, Weather, texts, email (POP or IMAP), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, favorite games, bank alerts, fitness stats, news headlines, and other alerts your smartphone allows. Vibration patterns for each type of alert are set using the free Martian App on your smartphone, letting you know if you’ve just received, for example, an email, text message or news alert without even looking at your watch, let alone your phone. The Martian Notifier App lets you filter the notification types you want sent to the watch. And you can recall past notification for a quick review.
In addition, Martian Notifier offers several convenience-oriented features. For example, a touch of a Notifier button activates your smartphone’s speakerphone, enabling hundreds of voice commands to control music, check a sports score, get directions, search the web, create a reminder or appointment, and more. You can also decline an incoming call, set silent vibrating alarms that only you will sense, get a once-an-hour tickler to remind you to take a break, turn on an LED light to see in a dark room, control your phone’s camera shutter, and more.

Watch out Samsung Gear, there’s a stylish new tech time piece coming to the market. Motorola’s new Moto360 smart watch is the newest addition to Android’s step into wearables. Driven by voice and easily glance able, this time piece takes a few notes from classic watches of old.
Motorola’s decision to go round is obviously smart, but it’s also bold. With most small, wearable components — including the screen — designed to fit in square bodies, the company was forced to, as its designers and engineers explain in the Moto 360’s reveal video, build a brand new set of components.
While we still don’t know a lot about the Moto 360, Motorola has just announced a live Hangout with Jim Wicks the lead designer on the Moto 360 project. That Hangout will take place later today, March 19th at 2:00PM EST. You can sign up for the event by heading here.
Whatever Google and Motorola can do to make the Moto 360 and other Android-based smart watches as watch-like as possible works for me. Style and technology should work hand in hand and one shouldn’t outshine the other. This Moto 360 (in my opinion) looks like we’ve found the first step towards fashionable balance. But don’t take my word for it, check out the Moto 360 smart watch for yourself below.
Did you notice that even when wearers are speaking to their Moto 360s, they’re not holding the watch close to their mouths, or to their ears to listen to its response. Now that’s a watch worth an arm party! What do you think? Would you rock the Moto 360 or is Samsung Gear more your style? Sound off below.
So Samsung’s big launch is nearly here and we have an idea what to expect. After all, what’s a launch without a few leaks ahead of time. Samsung announced their event a few weeks back. Right before IFA, Samsung is having their Unpacked Episode 2 on Wednesday September 4th. But of course, there was a leak on Samsung’s Galaxy smartwatch (AKA Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch) that was supposed to be released. Check out what we know so far!
What everyone wants to know about the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch is the design. What is it going to look like?
Venture Beat describes it as a blocky health tracker with a camera. The watch will be quite large, measuring 3 inches diagonally. The watch will come with Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities to allow for connection with Android devices and internet access. Now for the crazy features:
The Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch is set to come with a 4 megapixel camera and tiny speakers. The Galaxy Gear Smartwatch will allow you to keep track of your diet by taking pics of your food and labeling. But does it mean that it will be able to detect nutrional value? How will it work with Samsung’s S Health App on the Galaxy S 4?
We’ve been speaking with sources to separate fact from fiction. And this weekend, a source showed us one of the prototypes sent to developers and a few select partners. Note that Samsung is highly security conscious in protecting its designs, and occasionally sends off prototypes that don’t mirror the final design. But it won’t be far off.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch are set to come with the following specs:
- Samsung S Voice for voice commands
- Preloaded with Android apps for social media, health tracking, etc.
- Integration with a companion Galaxy S phone or tablet
- An easy-to-use swipe function to access apps, the built-in camera, and the photo gallery
- Call logs (A cool use-case: You can initiate a call from the watch to a Samsung smartphone device)
- Internet access
- Power button on the side
- Social media integration — you can share to your Facebook or Twitter account from the watch
- 10+ hours battery life
I’m ready for the smartwatch war to begin. It started with MP3 players then smartphones and now watches. Wearable technology is definitely on the rise!
What do you think so far? What do you hope is true about the leak? What do you hope changes? Galaxy Gear Smartwatch or iWatch?
