I haven't looked at a lot of smartwatches, but this one seems to have a lot of potential, even if it's not quite there yet.
With its Android-based OS, along with Amazon's Alexa voice control, the CoWatch has a lot of potential -- if it can get past a few issues.

Thanks, +Alfred Poor! And for the advice -- I tried it that way, and it actually worked (although the watch had to re-establish its connection to Amazon, and then it took another three tries until it understood what I was saying...).

The LG V10 concentrated on video, photos & audio. The V20 follows that trend.
Shipping with Android 7.0, LG's high-end V20 offers features being dropped by its competitors, like an SD-card slot, removable battery and headphone jack, while concentrating on sophisticated audio and visual technology.

I had a chance to play with the new Moto Z Play, and was pleasantly surprised. It's a midlevel phone, but has great battery life, good performance, and accepts the same nifty modules as its (much) more expensive siblings, the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force.
While slightly less bleeding-edge than the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, this is a solid midrange phone that uses the same useful snap-on modules.

It can get very crowded and noisy, especially during sports events (which may not be a negative, depending on what you're looking for), but the staff is friendly and the various mac-and-cheese dishes are excellent.

We stop there every year on our way to a Boston-area convention. The food is good, the atmosphere friendly and you can choose three used books to take with you. The biggest attraction for us, however, is the bird feeder at one side of the restaurant; we always try to sit by the windows so we can birdwatch while we eat.

My family has been using Altfest for managing our savings and retirement investments practically since the company started. Altfest did very well by my parents, who could retire comfortably because of the company's good management of their accounts.
