Smarch (Smart Watch)

I caved and ended up getting a Fossil Explorist gen 4 for $192 at Target. This is way more stylish than the Ticwatch Pro. It just looks like a standard watch, which I like. I didn't like the Ticwatch Pro's LCD screen layout and found it hard to read so I turned it off (removing the one thing it had ...

Smarch (Smart Watch)

The way Amazon charged the TicBand, I can return that for $37 so I am doing that. All in, the TicWatch Pro only costed $178 after tax which is a killer deal.

Smarch (Smart Watch)

Got my Ticwatch Pro. I'm still on the the fence with it mainly because it is 30% thicker than my G Watch R (14.6mm vs. 11.1mm). It just feels so much more massive than the G Watch R. I'll wear it for a few weeks and see if it grows on me. I'll probably also buy a Fossil Sport if those come on sale t...

Re: RE: Google Home (previously: Google's October 4th Event)

80375 My parents got an Echo Dot and I set up the Harmony skill for them. That works pretty slick with cable as you can ask it to turn to specific channels. I even made it so my dad can say turn on the Twins game then it turns on FSN. They were impressed with it. HTC Cable? Does the box/DVR enable ...

Smarch (Smart Watch)

80325 Treat yo self! Is the Pro the one that does 30 days if only in medium smart mode? Its the one that has a dual display which gets 30 days in that mode. I'll likely never use that mode unless I get in a pinch but I think there is a mode that utilizes it to save on battery in ambient mode so I'l...

80292 I'm teetering on buying a Ticwatch Pro with Christmas moneys Aaaaand it is purchased. Got TicWatch Pro for $200 (+ tax) and got a free TicBand ($50 value) which is a super duper deal!

Guess I'll just have to buy a new house. Once we are in the new.house I would like to slowly start adding up to Corey's setup. Seems like I need a Samsung SmartThings if I want to use an actiontiles tablet like him. I wish Google would step up and connect all the dots to this stuff. Buy a hub and t...

80183 I'm jealous you have the new chip and NFC Literally the only reason I'm upgrading from my OG Huawei watch. I still wear it daily and it even got the new Wear OS UI update which actually greatly improved performance. This thing still lasts me all day and works well. Pretty awesome for a smarch...

I need to stay ahead of Blake in # of devices so I added a Bond Home Ceiling Fan controller. All 4 of my ceiling fans are controlled by RF remotes so this one device can control all the fans and the lights on them which is pretty neat.

A VR-dedicated room should have been a requirement in a new home.
