Motorola has made its two new variants of the Moto 360 smartwatch official, adding Champagne Gold and a second Light Metal to the list of offered finishes. The Android Wear smartwatch keeps the distinctive circular display - though gives it some new watchfaces to match the casing colors - but throws in a narrower metal band than Motorola offered before.

New Apple Watch tip points to February 14 launch

Apple might have a lovely Valentine gift for its fans next year. That is, if this latest leak coming from France proves to be true.

According to one law firm, that may not have been a legal thing to do.
