About Olio Devices
Combining practicality and style is probably the hardest thing to do, but it isn’t so hard if you search in the right place, and that’s what Olio Devices is all about, being a dependable, authentic source of recommendations when it’s time to make a timepiece purchase.
What We Do
What Products Do We Test?
We’ve tried and tested them all! And by all, we’re referring to any wearable gadget that goes around your wrist, be it a watch, smartwatch, fitness tracker, or other.
Who We Are
Our names are Alex (short for Alexander) Ford and Mark Williams; we’re two former engineering students who met in college. We were among the lucky ones who got placed together with a roommate that shared a common passion and interest! Our obsession with watches was the foundation on which our friendship was built.
Each of us had his own drawer with different watches and countless straps that we used to exchange with one another. And though we’re totally different in terms of what catches our eyes (Mark loves the inner workings, and I’m more interested in the features and style,) we’ve found common ground in the fact that we find these tiny and intricate devices absolutely fascinating.
