Logo Sneak Peak!

When we Welcomed Smartwatch Fans to the Mobile Nations family on January 1st of this year, we told the story of how the site came to be. In reality, we actually started 2013 with the goal of building a community and resource with a broader focus, covering not only smartwatches, but also other wearables and the broader world of connected devices often referred to as the internet of things.

The problem was, we couldn't find a domain name and brand that we loved. With the months rushing by and 2013 coming to a close and the urge to get a new community launched just as strong, we decided to not delay and get things rocking with the more niche-focused Smartwatch Fans. It's been a busy four months on Smartwatch Fans, and things are about to get a whole lot busier and way more fun.

We FINALLY have a name and brand we love for the destination we've been wanting to build, and later this month we'll pull the trigger on the change. We're going to keep the name a secret for now, but above you can gander at the awesome logo for the rebrand. Starting immediately, we'll begin ramping up the coverage on Smartwatch Fans to include more topics like connected fitness, connected home, connected automotive, connected toys and more. In fact, we've already expanded the discussion and help forums to cover this new range of topics, so the community participation can begin immediately.

We're going to keep the name a secret for now, but above you can gander at the awesome logo for the rebrand

We have big plans for where we're taking the new community. We're now living in the post-smartphone era. It's no longer a dream that every phone will be a smartphone - it's a certainty. And whether you're an Android, iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry user when it comes to your smartphone, this new site will become your preferred destination when it comes to all the things you can connect your smartphone to. Beyond our regular Mobile Nations personalities dropping by to contribute on the new site, expect to see a lot more new faces join in on the fun as we add to our passionate team of experts throughout 2014.

Guess our new name and win a Sonos Play:1!

You'll want to keep it locked to SmartwatchFans.com for the rebrand to kick in, but in the meantime and in true Mobile Nations fashion here's a chance to win an awesome prize. Leave a comment to this post taking a guess at what the new name will be. The first person who guesses right will win a Sonos Play:1 (and Sonos Bridge of course) the day we officially announce the new name.

Smartwear.com is for sale for 90k. I'd do that if I were you. Then give me the Sonos for this great idea.

Simon Sage says:

Dude. That logo is baller.

blindfaith76 says:

are we looking at the same logo?

Simon Sage says:

I hope so, otherwise I'm in some alternate dimension. Or you are. My head hurts.

I'm seeing sharp lines, good colors, vaguely Lego imagery which is a neat parallel to connected devices I wouldn't have otherwise made. Recognizable at a distance. Both 3D and 2D perspectives. What don't you like about it?

Yeah, the logo is awesome. And this is just one usage case. We have some aweeeeesome implementations of it.

Wrist Centric

My guess would be connected...connected central...something with connected in it because that was repeated in the article.

That's what I was thinking too.

Then again, maybe not... Especially since I'd presume they would have already registered the domain they want.

Wicell says:

See that's the first thing that popped into my mind, but I did some Googling and found that there is a connectedlifetv.com, which would cause some confusion. I do however, agree that connected is in it.

aubinhick990 says:

Wearables World? My best guess for now...

Devhux says:

Since there will be much more than wearables being discussed, I don't think that would be the name.

That's my guess anyway.
On a related note: That logo is super slick.

pre2930 says:

My guesses would be "Wear Central" or "Wear Connect". Anything with 'Wrist' would be too limiting.

tdizzel says:

I'm guessing the new name fo all this conneccted stuff will be Connect Four

Wrist Action? If not, you can have that for free.

The name, that is.....not wrist action.

startac7868 says:

Watch Life or Life Watch (with or without space or uppercasing).

Awesome logo! My guess is AllWear or EveryWear.

Looking at the logo, I think Connected Life is a great guess.

All I can say is "Thank the gods". Much as I liked the content of smartwatchfans, every time I looked at the site, it made my eyes hurt. I kept wanting to close the content because it looked to much like a popup ad.

jean15paul says:

Let's see. My first thoughts were connected.com or connectedthings.com or connectedfans.com or connectedcentral.com

Then I said, guessing is for chumps. If yall are launching a new site, you've already registered the domain name. After doing "whois" searches for about an hour and reading through 184 domains registered to "domains@smartphoneexperts.com", I can conclusively say 2 things.

1) Yall know how to keep a secret. I couldn't find anything connected related.
2) Yall are crazy thorough and aggressive with registering domains. Seriously!

major payne says:

All they have to do it hide the whois .. i even tried searching using the address and phone listed on their other domains

Everything Connected ??

Wicell says:

I'm just gonna put it out there that anyone with:
1)Watch
2)Wear
3)Wrist
or any other combination with those 3 in the name are most likely wrong, you gotta remember is EXPANDING as well as rebranding, so it's not gonna have that in the name. I also agree it has connected in the name, just unclear as to where and what else.

exilis says:

Life (or live) Connected was my immediate thought from the logo.

I am going with Connected or Connection (or at least connected wear.com) as the logo is actually a C just using a 2d wear blocks!
