Android Wear Smartwatches Are Getting Serious

Just after Apple got serious about fitness with the Apple Watch Series 2 and Samsung went rugged with the Gear S3, the Android equivalent is getting some much-needed love in the form of two new smartwatches — the Polar M600 for fitness junkies, and Nixon’s fashionable but supremely functional Mission will handle a 100-metre dive underwater.

Nixon's Star Wars Watch Collection Adds Kylo Ren And Captain Phasma Designs

Here it is — the fourth release in Nixon’s Star Wars series, The Force Awakens Collection: Part 1.

The Most Requested Photo In The US National Archives Is Of Nixon And Elvis

The All-American Expo That Invaded Cold War Russia

Over the course of six weeks during the height of the Cold War, almost three million Soviets visited an exhibition that celebrated America. American kitchens, American art, American cars, and most especially American capitalism. The American National Exhibition in Moscow was a full-court press to convince the Soviet people of American superiority.

Does The Nixon Genie Watch Think It's A Magic 8 Ball? 'Yes'

Can Nixon's RPM Headphones Handle My George Michael Remixes?

Looking not entirely dissimilar from the Danish Aiaiai TMA-1 headphones I liked so much last year, these Nixon RPM headphones have 40mm drivers tuned for DJ use, along with articulated joints for twisting every-which-way.

Wrap These Nixon Socket Earbuds 'Round Your Audio-Holes

You won’t find many audio-nerds swapping their Sennheisers for $US30 Nixon earbuds, but it’s pretty hard finding moulded-wire models that wrap around your ear. They’re available in a few brighter colours for the more-adventurous types, too. [Nixon via Uncrate]

Clumsy Watch-Wearers Rejoice Over Nixon's Gunship Watches
