Connectedly Logo

Today Mobile Nations and I are thrilled to announce the rebranding (and refocus) of our sister site Smartwatch Fans to Connectedly!

Along with the great new name we are expanding the coverage to include the full scope of next-generation of smart devices and related products hitting the consumer market today — think connected lifestyle (health trackers, wearables), connected home, connected toys, connected automotive, and more! Be sure to visit the Connectedly is Open for Business welcome post for the full manifesto.

The site is hosted at, and we also have which will be used as the URL shortener for story links that appear on social sharing sites like Twitter. 

Nobody guessed the Connectedly name right in our guess the new name contest. Many of you got close, but no cigar. It's not surprising though - it took us over a year to land on the Connectedly name. Indeed, it’s a pretty awesome name for our site as it encapsulates everything that is coming in technology these days, from wearables to home automation and even that Windows on Devices thing announced at Build this year.

Be sure to visit Connectedly, check out the welcome post, and start visiting on a regular basis. On May 1st, we'll kick off our launch celebration contest - you won't want to miss it!
