TAG Heuer’s Android Wear watch’s most important detail is mechanical

TAG Heuer’s Android Wear watch’s most important detail is mechanical

Just a tiny portion of the presentation of TAG Heuer's first smartwatch (with Google's Android Wear) was dedicated to its warranty. This relatively tiny detail makes all the difference when you compare the watch - and the brand - to smartwatch competitors like Apple and Motorola. The TAG Heuer watch comes with a 2-year warrantee. After that time is done, the owner of the watch has the option of going in to the watch store to swap it out (for a fee) with a mechanical TAG Heuer watch.

TAG Heuer Connected watch revealed – aimed directly at Apple

The folks at TAG Heuer have revealed a smartwatch that runs Google's Android Wear software. Inside you'll find Google's software - very similar to the software you'll find on devices like the Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch, while on the outside you'll find luxury hardware the likes of which are only otherwise delivered with a far more expensive piece of equipment. This is the first time an Android Wear watch has been released by a manufacturer that hadn't previously released any devices with Android onboard.

Huawei Watch Review

Huawei Watch Review

This device has been a long time coming - and anticipated by round-faced smartwatch hopefuls. This is Huawei's first fully round display-toting wearable device, and indeed one of the first smartwatches with a fully round panel to have been shown to the world, as well. The Huawei Watch is relatively affordable (especially compared to its biggest competitors) and looks generally unassuming or otherwise low-key in design. Is that enough to take on the likes of Apple and Motorola?

Apple prepares for “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”

Apple prepares for “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”

Jony Ive speaks about the opening of a new exhibition at the Met Museum with curator Andrew Bolton and Anna Wintour. Apple's chief designer isn't shy about getting to the point, suggesting that "it’s a completely false notion that there is inherent value in what is made by hand, or an inherent lack of value in what is made by machine." The exhibition will go by the name manus x machina / fashion in an age of technology and will be taking place from May 5th until August 14th, 2016.

Moto 360 Review (2015)

Moto 360 Review (2015)

Today we review the second generation Moto 360 for the year 2015. This is a follow-up to a winning design from Motorola for the year 2014, they being the first creators of a "round" watch for the Android Wear platform. This time around, their design becomes ever-so-slightly more traditional. This time the device has arms (or lugs, if you prefer), and can be custom-ordered like its Moto X smartphone brethren. There's also two different "Designed for Men" models and one "Designed for Women" model for whatever reason.

Pebble Time Round hands-on: up close and circular

This week the Pebble Time Round has been revealed, and with it the promise of the "thinnest, lightest" smartwatch in the world.

In this hands-on look at the Pebble Time Round, we ask whether this a more elegant solution than previous Pebbles, or if it's just a round version of its predecessor.

Today we've gotten the opportunity to have a peek at the body of the Moto 360 Sport. This is a device that's very similar to the standard Moto 360, only here it has a slightly more "sporty" appearance and rugged features. It also has GPS inside to track your movements. While we have a full Moto 360 hands-on for you to look at, we've also got a peek at the Moto 360 Sport - albeit without the display on. This is the hardware in a non-functioning model.

Tencent QQ Watch wearable for kids is rugged, colorful

We’ve seen wearables for kids in the past, some of them with an educational slant, others designed solely for parents to track their whereabouts. The newest kid-friendly wearable is a mixture of both those things, and comes from Chinese company Tencent. The QQ Watch is colorful and styled in such a way that it resembles a legitimate smartwatch, though the wearable isn't as functional as something the child's parent may be wearing.
