Pebble’s Domino’s app tracks deep dish from your wrist

Pebble’s Domino’s app tracks deep dish from your wrist

It's not entirely clear why smartwatch companies seem convinced we need to manage our food from our wrists, but if you're a Pebble wearer whose been looking hungrily at Android Wear's Eat24 app, salvation is almost at hand. Domino's is launching a new delivery tracker for the e-paper smartwatch, with real-time updates as to where, exactly, your dinner is fed straight to your arm. However, it's not quite the watch to table digital food service that you might hope for.

Sony SmartWatch 3 joins LG G Watch R on Google Play

Joining a whole collection of Android Wear devices in the Google Play market this week is the Sony SmartWatch 3, the first Sony SmartWatch to be offered direct by Google. This is also only the second time Google Play has sold a Sony device from their online store, the first being the massive Sony X Ultra Google Play Edition. Sony comes with their third-generation smartwatch with Android Wear while previous editions used a unique version of a slightly less wearables-aimed Android, before Google jumped in.

Geak Watch II boasts two displays, hits funding goal

Geak Watch II boasts two displays, hits funding goal

Last summer we saw the GEAK Watch, an Android-toting smartwatch that will soon be getting an upgrade in the form of a new model. The GEAK Watch II has been successfully funded and will be shipping this coming January, bringing with it a stylish design and the features you'd expect to find in a smartwatch: fitness tracking, message and call notifications, and more. The maker is hailing GEAK Watch II as "the world's first true round panel smart watch - with no dead "sensor" area".

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

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

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.
