Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon has joined the Samsung Gear S party, launching the 3G-enabled smartwatch today, though you'll pay a pretty penny for the privilege of equipping your wrist. The wearable - priced up by AT&T and T-Mobile USA last week - comes with its own cellular connectivity baked in, rather than relying solely on a Bluetooth-tethered smartphone to operate. However, that doesn't mean you can avoid a smartphone altogether, and that's where the Gear S starts to get expensive.

ASUS ZenWatch hits Best Buy stores November 9

ASUS ZenWatch hits Best Buy stores November 9

As they tend to do, ASUS is coming on strong with a decent product at a more than affordable price tag with the ZenWatch. A new report suggests the newest Android Wear watch is coming, and soon. Starting November 9 (that’s two days away!), you can pick up the latest Android Wear smartwatch via Best Buy. As expected, the ZenWatch checks in at a much lower price point that the smartwatches it competes with. At $199, it undercuts the rest, but doesn’t skimp too much on the spec sheet.

Gold Moto 360 hands-on – Let’s talk smartwatch luxury

Gold Moto 360 hands-on – Let’s talk smartwatch luxury

Can a smartwatch be stylish? That's an argument set to run and run, but of the options on the market right now, a majority would probably point to the Moto 360 as the poster-child for looks, even if its Android Wear OS is still a work-in-progress. It was joined today as a range with a Champagne Gold version complete with a thinner, 18mm band, along with a range of new leather straps, so I brought my very best wrist along to try out Motorola's take on an altogether glitzier wearable.

Moto 360 goes gold in pre-Apple Watch luxe hunt

Moto 360 goes gold in pre-Apple Watch luxe hunt

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. At 18mm wide, though Motorola isn't saying it directly, it's quite possible that the company is targeting would-be female wearers who may well have been dissuaded by the thicker 23mm metal bracelet previously announced.

AT&T readies FiLIP 2 for kids, TIMEX IRONMAN ONE GPS+ for adults

There's a wearable for everyone these days. Smartwatches maybe mostly a geek's fantasy come true (conversely perhaps a horologist's worst nightmare), but all people of all ages and interests have one that's desinged for them. Starting this Friday, AT&T will be making available two smartwatches for different members of the family. The latest generation FiLIP 2 is just as much for parents as they are for the kids they were designed for, while the new TIMEX IRONMAN ONE GPS+ is a smartwatch for those who want to leave their smartphones at home when running about.

Apple Watch pricing may range from $350 to over 10x that much

At no surprise to anyone, the least expensive version of the Apple Watch has been tipped to be the "Sport" version. Based on what we've seen of the device range so far, the Sport edition of the Apple Watch will be akin to the lower tiers of the iPhone. The mid-range will of course be the steel models, while the highest-end "Edition" will be made with gold, coming with price tags reaching $5000 USD - unofficially, of course. This information comes well before Apple even taps an official release date.

New Apple Watch tip points to February 14 launch

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. IGen claims that its reliable insider sources maintain that the Apple Watch will actually start selling on February 14 next year and will have two additional luxurious color options. This would run contrary to what Apple's own retail exec seems to have implied in a corporate message to retail employees, hinting that Apple's smartwatch won't be launching until spring 2015.

You want a smartwatch, and by many accounts, the Moto 360 is the best you can get right now. Classic style and bleeding edge technology come together to form one pretty great device.

Apple Watch now leaked to land in Spring 2015

Holding on to Apple's every word about the coming of the Apple Watch? You might want to hold on just a bit longer and a bit tighter then. Company Senior Vice President for Retail and Online Stores Angel Ahrendts was said to have given a video message to retail employees, which isn't exactly something out of the ordinary. What isn't ordinary, however, is that her message hinted that Apple's launch of its first ever and much awaited smartwatch might happen much later than expected, all the way into spring.
