Timex is looking to make its own entrance into the smartwatch market, and it is doing so in collaboration with Qualcomm and AT&T. The smartwatch, called the GPS One+, will run a hefty $399 USD this coming fall, and for that price tag consumers will get a cellular-connected wrist piece that doesn't require a smartphone.
LG is pushing out a software patch for their LG G Watch, and the reason is a bit stranger than usual. It seems some users are reporting a buildup of residue on the charging pins -- something that has no effect on the device performance, according to LG. In an aim to keep people happy with the G Watch, LG is sending out a software patch for the problem.
When Apple first decided to enter the automotive industry, they didn't decide to create the iCar. Rumors of the iWatch swirl - Apple's hired an army of watch and wearable-friendly professionals over the past several years, and they're making something new. But the quickest way to the top of your business is to turn it upside down - and the modern Apple model isn't above collaboration.
The brand you’ll see on the smartwatch coming from designer Michael Bastian is Gilt - but given that you’re a tech reader, the first name you’ll recognize in this collaboration is Hewlett-Packard. While the triple team-up here hasn’t let it be known what software it’ll be running quite yet, the concept views of this smartwatch have been revealed - and it looks rather nice.
OnePlus, who have barely got a smartphone out the door, may be turning their attention elsewhere. In addition to the well received smartphone, OnePlus is said to be working on a smartwatch. Currently dubbed the "OneWatch", this is one you’re going to want to keep an eye out for.
Apple’s iWatch is a curious thing; we expect it to arrive at some point very soon, but we’ve heard next to nothing about it. A team of up to 100 people is reportedly working on Apple’s wearable, and Healthkit will make use of wearables for iOS — but still, no actual device to look to. We may have seen that device, though, with recently discovered patent filings.
HTC has made no bones about their wearable ambitions; they’ve just not given us much to go on. A new video, highlighting something else entirely, may have given us our first look at their incoming smartwatch. A bit of crafty product placement may showcase just where HTC is going with their wearable, expected this fall.
Google and Samsung have an interesting history. Often working together, the two eventually end up splitting apart at the seams. Be it Nexus devices or Chromebooks, there has almost always been a very Google-centric Samsung device floating around. The latest Samsung-for-Google device, the Gear Live, may have drawn a line in the sand.
