In our inaugural episode of the Smartwatch Fans podcast, Kevin Michaluk, Phil Nickinson and Rene Ritchie join me for a quick podcast to get things started. There's plenty more to come, but for this round we talk about the launch of, our recent visit with Pebble as well as what to expect from CES for smartwatches (LOTS).

Smartwatch Fans Podcast 00 - Ground Zero!


Tried adding the RSS feed to PocketCasts and it appears that the URL to download the podcasts in the FeedBurner is down or incorrect. Looking forward to another MobileNations site that really interests me, already a huge AC fan!

EDIT: Looked in the links and apparently the podcast in the RSS feed is linking to "" and not "" so it is trying to download the Zen and Tech podcast instead ;D

Thanks! It downloaded this time, and I'm really looking forward to this website and it's podcasts in the future!

Nice! I'm watching now. This is my new favorite site, I think. I'm glad there's finally a high quality site to get smartwatch news. Especially since I'm looking to buy one in the near future.

The really good part of Smartwatch Fans is that it really transcends the specific platform. It will be for everyone as the technology evolves and becomes truly cross OS. It wont matter what phone you are using we will all have a common point of conversation. I can talk to an iPhone, Android, or BB user and it won't degenerate into a platform argument. (well maybe not) I am sure there will be watches very soon that will cross platforms, even Galaxy gear will need to expand. Great idea for a sight Adam! Now when my boss yells at me and asked if I am on that Damn Blackberry or Android sight I can truly answer " No I am not!"

I love that too! It's tough on a platform-specific site, but here there are so many options and platforms you can't really get down on anyone for what they choose. Looking forward to some great conversation!

Damn you Kevin for making me want a watch that doesn't exist yet. Joking aside, I think your marketing plan for an iWatch is brilliant. Honestly though, I want to like Apple products and I love the look & quality but I'm just put off by the company for some reason. I will say I was drooling over the look & feel of a macbook but I'd rather spend my money on a really good pc. I can see myself getting a watch by Apple like I would a movado. Meaning I'd like one but it's probably not going to happen.

Having trouble actually downloading the podcast via iTunes on an iPod; not sure if it is just me or not. I can play it off iTunes without downloading. Looking forward to listening!

Dammit Adam. Pebble will have to pay you for this after watching this episode I'm so obsessed with one that I'm buying it next week. I'm hitting my head right now that I didn't get it from best buy when they had it for $120 I hope that they still have it at that price.
