Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Audi’s foray into smartwatches has kicked off some confusion here at CES, over whether the car company is working on Open webOS or Android Wear. Turns out, the answer is "both". SlashGear sat down with Audi’s engineers responsible for both projects, to take a walk through the “Secure Key” project that will allow phones and smartwatches from multiple manufacturers to wirelessly start the car, locate it in distant parking lots, and even loan virtual keys to colleagues and friends. Read on for a full demo of both Audi’s LG Open webOS watch and its Android Wear counterpart.

LG tipped to launch webOS smartwatches in early 2016

In October 2014, word surfaced that LG would be making a smartwatch running webOS, something that came to light when a developer page referencing a "webOS SmartWatch" and "webOS Wear" briefly appeared online. Though that has been pulled and nothing since has been confirmed regarding this rumor, rumbles of the plan have again gone public, and sources are now saying the plan is both valid and in the works. The smartwatches will reportedly be launched by early 2016, and will be joined by another wearable of a more ambiguous sorts.

This is Audi’s custom car-controlling LG smartwatch

The automotive status symbol may no longer be the fob on your keyring but the smartwatch on your wrist, and we’ve got up close with the LG-made wearable Audi casually revealed during its CES keynote. R&D chief Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg used the watch to summon a self-driving Prologue to the stage, the touchscreen timepiece similar in appearance to LG’s existing circular-screened Android Wear model, but updated to suit the German marque’s automotive needs. Audi exclusively demonstrated the new smartwatch to SlashGear, and explained to me why it’s more than just a G Watch R with a custom skin.

CES Day 1: 4K is here to stay, Lenovo douses the competition

If you thought CES was dead, you’re wrong. It’s not the over-the-top extravaganza it once was, but there are still plenty of interesting things to be found. On day one, some heavy hitters brought their arsenal out, giving us something to think about for the rest of the week. TVs were a big deal (literally), while we also got a look at some new phones. In case you weren’t sure, CES also made it clear that 4K is the new normal.

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

I guarantee that the first time you hold the LG G Flex 2 in your hand, you're going to ask yourself why aren't there more phones with a curved display. And that's LG's hook. Instead of making you read this entire hands-on to really know how I feel about the G Flex 2 (though, you know, you really should read it anyway), I'm going to just come right out and tell you that it's beautiful to look at and it's beyond comfortable to hold. I'm not just saying this just because this is another new device coming to market but because, for the first time in a while now, I feel that LG has hit a home run.

LG might be showcasing a ton of new electronics, particularly Smart TVs, next week at CES 2015, but at its mobile booth, the attention grabber will most likely be the odd G Flex 2, the successor to 2013's odd curved G Flex. But more than just the odd curved display that still has to prove its purpose in the market, the LG G Flex 2 is now rumored to bring yet another first to the table: the first 64-bit phone with tri-band carrier aggregation.
