Most of these are looking a bit flat, especially the watches. Realize the close sides of the watches will appear larger than the far sides and the perspective lines should raise your surfaces some to add depth. The second two could benefit from some shadowing and line weight to make them pop more with depth.
Best of luck,

Right now the watches do look flat, but maybe that's what you're going for. You can probably do one watch concept per page and explore the hinges, knob, clasps, materials etc. Rather than have 8 different watches on one page, chose one concept and really work it out per page. Detail sketches and slight variations on the bezel shapes, etc.
The earbuds are just that...earbuds. Nice form exploration but no direction or detailing. Can't really give more feedback.
The electric whisk also looks flat, no shading. The shapes look bloby and the handles too thick. Not a lot of form exploration, they all look blocky. Pay more attention to details; vents, buttons, cord, handle grip, etc.
Seems like you're exploring without direction. Have you done any mood boards? What stylistic direction are you trying to achieve? Organic, monolithic, geometric, minimal, aggressive, inviting, etc. Chose one of the 3 projects and work through it paying attention to all the details. Maybe if you have some inspirational images we can give you more feedback. Why don't you do some mood boards for the Electric Whisk and then some sketches that relate to those specific stylistic directions. I think that will give you more inspiration and direction.

Your line weight can be controlled by simply varying your pen pressure. Maybe the pen you are using doesn't have good pressure variation?
Try just using a ball point.
