Garmin looking to make its MARQ with a new collection of tool watches

Hey, you know what we really need? A bunch of highly-specific smartwatches, tailored to one of several very specific activities. Just kidding, you never need anything like that.

Samsung’s upcoming wearables leak (through Samsung’s own app)

We treat a lot of tech leaks with suspicion -- not because it's inaccurate, but because we can't believe that they're anything more than 'leaks'. Hey, it happens.
