Cogito Watch

Cogito Watch

If you love the idea of a smartwatch but hate the digital, tech-based designs most of them are built on, check out the new Cogito Watch ($179).  It's a smartwatch that blends an analog watch movement with an intelligent digital display, resulting in a daily wear watch design that fits in anywhere.  Functionally, the Cogito Watch connects via Bluetooth to your phone, enabling you to receive updates via the watch face without having to check your phone.  You can opt to answer or mute the call and you can choose to acknowledge or clear alerts, all without having to access your physical phone.  And unlike many smartwatches, you don't have to worry about charging the Cogito.  It runs on an easily replaceable button-cell battery with a lifespan of more than a year.  Available in 6 distinct color options, the Cogito watch is the perfect for those craving smartwatch functionality in a traditional analog watch.

Pebble Steel Watch

Further seeking to bring smartwatches to the masses, Pebble has unveiled the newest member of their smartwatch family:  the Pebble Steel ($250).  As its name implies, the Pebble Steel's hallmark trait is its metal construction in your choice of black matte or brushed stainless steel, each of which comes with both a metal and leather interchangeable strap.  There's also a new Gorilla Glass crystal and tri-color LED display.  Aside from the construction enhancements, there's no difference in functionality between the original Pebble Smartwatch and the Pebble Steel.  It's compatible with all the current Pebble watch apps, and battery life remains unchanged at 5-7 days before needing to be recharged.
