Mini Review of the Casio G-Shock GW-1310

I'm only doing a mini review of the Casio G-Shock GW-1310 because it is almost identical to the G-Shock GW-1100 that I reviewed late last year with just a few subtle differences. Before reading what's different between the two watches, you should probably check out that review first, if you...

Review of the Tissot High-T MSN Direct SPOT Watch

View the Tissot High-T photo album. Up until now, I had reviewed SPOT watches from all the MSN Direct watch manufacturers (Swatch, Fossil, Abacus, and Suunto) except Tissot. And now that I have finally had a chance to put the Tissot High-T through its paces, I can honestly say that...

Review of the HighGear Summit Watch

I didn't even know that the HighGear Summit watch existed until I discovered this review over on WetDawg. If you're in the market for an outdoor sports watch with an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, and compass, this looks like it might be a viable and affordable option. The HighGear Summit sells...

Review of the Suunto n6HR MSN Direct Watch

View the Suunto n6HR photo gallery. If you're interested in this watch, I can make the decision really easy for you. As always, I'll go into all kinds of detail below, but for the majority of you, this first paragraph will be all you need. Here it goes: If you're...

Review of the Fossil Philippe Starck Collection

View the Fossil Philippe Starck photo gallery. Update (3/18/05): Watch Report reader John Dale recently informed me that the Sand Digital is no longer available on Fossil's site. Thanks, John! When I first decided to review Fossil's Philippe Starck collection, I initially associated the French designer with minimalism. As I...

Review of the Abacus Wrist PDA (AU5005)

View the Abacus Wrist PDA photo gallery. The first thing I'd like to do is congratulate Fossil for finally bringing the Wrist PDA to market. The Fossil and Abacus Wrist PDAs have been in the works for at least four years, and now they have finally arrived. Thanks, Fossil, for...

Review of the Abacus Wrist Net (AU4003)

View the Abacus Wrist Net photo gallery. There are two things which distinguish the Abacus Wrist Net from the other dozen or so MSN Direct watches currently out there: 1) It is the cheapest ($129 retail), and 2) it is, in my opinion, probably the best looking. If you've been...

Review of the YES Zulu Watch

View the YES Zulu watch photo gallery. It's not unusual to see cool new features and functionality packed into digital watches these days: MP3 players, infrared remote controls, cameras, compasses, flashlights, PDAs. Telling time has even become secondary for many watches by companies like Casio, Timex, Suunto, Fossil, and dozens...

Review of the nTren MP3 Watch

View the nTren MP3 watch photo gallery. The nTren MP3 watch is a welcome addition to the rapidly growing world of wrist MP3 players. Ironically, what sets the nTren MP3 watch apart is not its prowess as an MP3 player, but rather its surprisingly good looks. Just when most watch...

Review of the Xonix 256MB MP3 Watch

View the Xonix MP3 Watch photo gallery. The Xonix MP3 watch is essentially a simple quartz analog watch embedded inside a small and equally simple MP3 player on top of a 256MB USB storage device. Although the Xonix MP3 watch packs a fair amount of functionality into a single device...

Review of the New Fossil Wrist Net MSN Direct Watch (FX-3005)

View the Fossil Wrist Net photo gallery. Update (12/13/2004): Fossil has lowered the price of the Wrist Net FX3005 discussed in this review from $200 to $149 which, in my opinion, makes it much more attractive. Well done, Fossil! Fossil recently polished up and re-released their Wrist Net watch in...

Review of the Casio GW-1100 Analog G-Shock Tough Solar Waveceptor

View the Casio GW-1100 photo gallery. I reviewed this watch's all-digital little brother about a month ago, and found it to be a good watch for someone who needs something durable and inexpensive. If you're really into Casio G-Shocks, though, you'll definitely want to look at something more like the...
