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.

Bah, that was my guess!
My first was smartgear, which someone guessed earlier, but the domain is already taken. So I thought, smartwear...

Well I'll guess smartthings then.

I was sorta surprised it had not been guessed yet as that was the first thing to come to mind before I saw any comments.

This name makes sense because the site will take about connected things and nations to keep the coherence with mobile nations. In one or 2 years you will merge the 2 websites because the future is in Internet of things, the smartphone will be one of numerous connected device.

If the logo is any indication of the name it should be something about fitting together, and maybe the letter C? But that animated image makes me think "Colours". Of course if you twist it sideways it would either be sort of a W, or a pair of legs walking.

So my guesses:
Clever Connections
Colourful Connections
Walkable Wear
