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?

Suunto Kailash watch offers adventure log, sapphire glass

Are you an adventurer at heart in need of a watch but not terribly keen on the idea of a typical smartwatch?

Swatch’s new non-smart watch does mobile payments in China

Swatch’s new non-smart watch does mobile payments in China

Traditional watch makers have not been so eager to jump head on into the smartwatch buzz but the advancement of mobile payment might be giving them second thoughts. Swatch, however, while still mulling over a proper smartwatch product, does have a stopgap solution to that. It has just announced a non-smart, some call it dumb, regular watch in China and while it doesn't do all the fancy things smartwatches can do, it does do at least one thing they can: make payments without the need for cash or credit cards.

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.

The Gear S2 vs Apple Watch showdown I really care about

You can debate specs, argue square versus circle until you're blue in the face, but the big Gear S2 vs Apple Watch argument is which is more fidget-friendly. Samsung's new Tizen-powered smartwatch, launched at IFA 2015 last week to broadly positive reviews, is not only the first from the company to have a round display, but the first to use a clever rotating bezel for navigation.
