The latest about Hadley Roma watchbands and watchstraps

  • Samsung Gear S2 Classic


    The Samsung Gear S2 classic is not a fitness watch, as it's more a smartwatch. So its level of activity monitoring is minimal. The watch is able to track running, biking and walking with an estimated number of calories burned. The watch is designed to use apps, like Nike+Running and S health that comes preloaded on the watch and will provide the level of tracking most want to see from fitness devices. Having the ability to choose apps that are appropriate to the activity or user's preference makes the Samsung Gear S2 Classic a good choice for those looking for customization. Some basic features on the S2 is that it is able to keep of your activity throughout the day. It will keep track of your pulse, number of steps, and heart rate. It will also alert you if you haven't moved enough.

    The Samsung Gear S2 classic exceeds when it comes to fashion. Unlike many smartwatches that you can tell are fitness trackers, rather than watches, the S2 Classic does well in appearing to be a stylish watch for the wrist. The watch uses premium finishes, and the band can easily be swapped out with almost any 20mm standard strap for all looks and/or occasions. The S2 classic should not be confused with the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 as it does not take standard watch bands at all. The sleek design of the classic coupled with the many choices of band colors and watch faces, make this a great choice for those looking for a watch that can accompany any occasion.

    The Samsung Gear S2 classic is designed to also be durable. By using materials like stainless steel, scratch-resistant glass, the S2 classic should stand up to everyday wear and tear. Match it up with a Hirsch Performance strap and your band will have a 2.5 year warranty as well. The watch is also IP68 rated meaning that it will handle exposure to water, dust and sweat.

    To wrap it up, it sounds like the Samsung Gear S2 classic is an intuitive smartwatch that is designed for those on the go. While those looking for a true fitness watch will want more from the Gear S2 Classic, those looking for basic fitness measurements will be happy with this watch. It can receive smart notifications from smartphones, including text and email alerts, phone calls, and app notification, like Instagram alerts. Adding to this, is the ability to customize the watch's face and change its band as needed. Its touchscreen and rotating bezel help the user easily navigate throughout the watch. All this with a price tag less than $300.

The stainless steel deployant buckle with push button release and flip-lock clasp is best I have used. *Starts at 7 5/8" Long (That plus most watches at 1 1/2") gives you over 9"!

  • 2017 ROLEX New Editions

    Rolex introduced some editions to its Oyster and Cellini collections:

    We know this isn’t timely information to folks; however, we never covered this topic as part of our blogs but better late than never…..
    This was an interesting review of the Sea-Dweller covered by monochrome-watches:

  • The First Wristwatch

    Antique watches from around 1910

    The first wristwatch was made for a woman, Countess Koscowicz of Hungary, by Swiss watch manufacturer Patek Philippe in 1868. Although it was the first timekeeping device to be designed specifically for use on the wrist, it was intended primarily as a piece of decorative jewellery. It has been claimed that pocket watches were adapted to be worn on wrist bracelets prior to 1868, perhaps as early as the 1570s. However, there is no concrete evidence to support this, and Patek Philippe’s design for Countess Koscowicz was the first true wristwatch in the modern sense of the word. Wristwatches were a natural progression from pocket watches, but men did not initially take to the idea, preferring to rely on the larger, more traditional (and masculine) timepiece. However, the practicalities of the wristwatch, which could be operated with one hand rather than two, eventually won over popular opinion, appealing especially to those in the military, who needed to be able to monitor the time while also operating machinery and weaponry. Consequently, the first wristwatches to be produced in large quantities were those manufactured specifically for the German military in the 1880s by Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux.
