  1. With Google having announced the smartwatch-optimized Android Wear OS as short while ago, it’s looking increasingly likely that Apple will respond with a device of its own. Even though, as revealed last year, the Cupertino company has apparently assigned a dedicated team to the process of developing the so-called “iWatch,” we don’t, as yet, have much idea as to its form factor. The various concept designers have regularly offered their takes on what might be in the offing, and Nermin Hasanovic’s latest effort presents a very circular, Moto 360-esque approach. When Google launched Android Wea
  2. Google announced the smartwatch-ready Android Wear platform in March with LG And Motorola immediately confirmed as the first two manufacturers to embrace it. Those two are expected to finally completely detail their offerings at the Google I/O developer conference that begins next week. However, a new report now suggests that they will be joined on stage by what is currently the biggest player in the smartwatch game – Samsung. According to CNET sources familiar with the matter, Samsung is planning to launch its own Android Wear-running smartwatch at the event. The wearable will allege
  3. With Microsoft’s BUILD and Apple’s WWDC now done and dusted, Google will be the last of the Big Three to run its annual developer event when I/O kicks off in San Francisco next week, and following on from the recent announcement of its smartwatch-flavored Android Wear software, the search giant’s emphasis on the emerging wearables market will likely be atop the agenda. In advance of arguably the biggest date in the company’s calendar for this year, an introduction clip of Android Wear has just been released, offering even more of an insight into what smartwatch owners can expect from this exte
  4. LG is going to launch the G Watch this June with a pricetag of €199 in Europe (probably $199 in the US). LG France has confirmed the information to the news outlet Lesnumeriques. It’s almost certain that the G Watch is going to be the base for the first Google Nexus smartwatch, which too will run the recently announced Android Wear OS. The G watch’s display is going to be always on and packs a resolution of 280 x 280 pixels. Last week, LG uncovered a new Champagne Gold color to join the Stealth Black, which was showed at the official announcement of the watch. The G Watch is also
  5. With Google announcing their smart wearable ambitions, they noted they were working with various OEMs and chipset manufacturers to get the ball rolling. Shortly after launch, we saw an LG smartwatch, which will be featuring google’s new Android system for wearables. Now it’s Motorola’s turn, and they’re promising something pretty big. Via the official Motorola blog, the company is announcing the Moto 360. A modern looking smartwatch, it’s got a very Movado-esque style, but promises all the same functionality we heard about with the Android wear announcement. For those not exited about squ
  6. Google recently announced Android Wear, which is described as being a "project that extends Android to wearables." Specifically, the Android Wear project will initially be focused on watches. With that having been said, the individual announcements have already gotten underway and up first we are seeing news of the LG G Watch which will be powered by Android Wear. LG has yet to offer a full set of details for the G Watch, however there were some interesting pieces revealed. For example, while not yet offering a price, LG has said the G Watch will be available during the second quarter of
  7. Mid-March is here, and so are Android wearables. Google has just announced via their Android blog an SDK, new operating system, or maybe an API. They don’t officially say exactly what it is just yet outside of calling it a “project”, but Android Wear is being aimed squarely at Developers who want to laterally integrate into the wearable sector. Starting with smartwatches, and coming to us by the end of the year, Google wants to occupy your wrist as well as your smartphone. Open source and ready for a preview, Android Wear brings to life some of the rumors we’ve heard lately. The “Ok Google”
  8. There have been murmurs and mumblings about Microsoft’s smartwatch which has reportedly been in development since last year, and a new report indicates that the Seattle-based tech giant may make their upcoming wearable play nice with multiple platforms. Big M’s smartwatch will purportedly work with Windows Phones, as well and Android and iOS devices and will also measure your heart rate and push the data to your handset of choice. Turns out that Microsoft even enlisted the help of some of their Kinect developers to work on the smartwatch, so that it cane “continuously measure heart rate
  9. Google is releasing info and video tutorials for developers to get them ready for the Android Wear platform. One of the recent tutorials details how notifications on a wearable will be richer than the ones in the notification area of your phone. Android Wear notifications will feature pages – side-swipeable screens that will offer additional info and functionality. Developers can watch the video below for a quick tutorial of how they can update their apps to use the new Pages feature. One use (shown above) offers playback buttons on its multiple pages. Existing apps will co
  10. LG is still keeping the G Watch shrouded in mystery. Its key specifications aren’t disclosed just yet, as the company awaits the first Android Wear devices to debut at this year’s Google I/O. This leaves the G Watch’s features open to speculation and according to industry sources cited by a Korean media outlet, the watch is going to feature a USIM module allowing it to place calls. Not surprisingly, the report suggests LG U+ carrier will be the first to release the G Watch in South Korea. LG UK has confirmed that the G Watch will launch by July with a price tag of less than €220. The spe
  11. Motorola’s upcoming and highly anticipated smartwatch may cost twice as much as its Android Wear-powered Samsung Galaxy Gear competitor. A Chinese retailer has already listed the Moto 360 for pre-order. It costs CNY 2,800 or about €330, which is almost twice the Samsung Gear Live price in the country of CNY 1,500 or €175. Motorola Moto 360 is probably the most anticipated wearable device lately. It is a premium smartwatch with circular design and display. But being a premium gadget does mean a higher price tag, so the alleged Chinese listing isn’t that unexpected. Motorola has
  12. Google has released the Android Wear application on the Play Store. Although there is not much you can do with it right now, the app will become useful once those who ordered their Android Wear devices start receiving their orders next week. Google has also added a new section in the Play Store for Android Wear applications. Note, that these are not exactly separate apps that will run on your watch but your usual apps meant for your phone or tablet but now with Android Wear support to push relevant information on to the device. For now, the list is not particularly long but it’s goo
  13. HTC may have let slip a tease of its upcoming Android Wear smartwatch. It turns out that a new video focused on HTC's lauded design department also offers an extremely brief peek at something else: an unnannounced wearable. The watch appears on an employee's desk around 35 seconds in, attached to some sort of stand or charger. Getting a closer look requires zooming in significantly, so it's difficult to see much of the hardware's design beyond the square face. We're left clueless as to what the band looks like, for example. An artist's reproduction of HTC's upcoming watch (with a steel b
  14. The future of technology well and truly lies in wearables. And at the forefront of this race are big names like Pebble, Motorola with their recently announced Moto 360, and LG with their G Watch offering. The announcement of the Moto 360 and LG G Watch came when Google unveiled its Android Wear smartwatch OS back in March of this year, giving manufacturers and developers alike a platform to come up with interesting smartwatches with great smartphone-connected features. The aforementioned smartwatches gained storm due to their unique form factors and unique feature sets, but at thi
  15. Google today at I/O event confirmed that the first two watches that were announced alongside the Android Wear debut in March, the Motorola Moto 360 and the LG G Watch, will be water resistant. The water resistance is certainly very important for a smartwatch and these are some great news to everyone who wanted to give Android Wear wearables a try. More importantly the company announced the availability details of the two devices. The LG G Watch is going on sale today on the Play Store, while the Motorola Moto 360 will follow later this summer. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but tha
  16. Samsung is the third company to join the Android Wear fun, announcing its Gear Live smartwatch. The watch is water resistant and will be available for purchase later today from the Google Play Store. The Gear Live looks a lot like the Gear 2. While virtually no specifications were provided, it seems that the Gear Live will carry the same 1.63″ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. Gear Live can be paired with any Android 4.3+ device, not just Samsung ones like the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. The Samsung Gear Live will be available for pre-order for $199.99 through t
  17. The first thing to note is that, at present, Android Wear is built only for Android smartphones. In the future, it’s very likely that Google will humor those rocking an Apple iPhone, but during these early stages, it makes sense for everything to be kept in-house, as it were. Given the close-up clips we showed you of some of Android Wear’s initial devices, it’s probable that you’ll be wanting to know if your smartphone is Android Wear-ready, and in actual fact, it’s very easy to check. Below, we’ve prepared a very short tutorial on the subject, so if you’re keen to grab a Moto 360 or
  18. As we inch towards the end of summer in the United States, we also get a bit closer to the release of possibly one of the most anticipated Android Wear devices of the year, the Motorola Moto 360. Although it was announced in March and teased at Google I/O, we have heard very little information about the Moto 360 since that time. Interestingly, it looks like tech blogger, Luca Viscardi aka Mister Gadget, has gotten his hands on the device and has given his first impressions. Although his words are translated, it seems like Viscardi is fairly impressed with the Moto 360, stating that i
