Android Wear’s iOS victim isn’t Apple Watch, it’s Pebble

Android Wear’s iOS victim isn’t Apple Watch, it’s Pebble

Android Wear has been updated to work with iOS, and while some suggest it's the Apple Watch that'll suffer, we're thinking Pebble. The smartwatch that took hold a couple years ago with its super-simple interface, physical buttons, and most important of all - iOS integration from the get-go. Being the only smartwatch in the world worth a second glance was great for Pebble when it launched. Now things are different. Now there's competition, and Pebble really, truly looks like it's behind the times.

LG Watch Urbane Luxe flaunts gold to make it more timely

We haven't heard much about LG's plans for a new smartwatch, and probably that's because it doesn't have one. At least, not in the way that Samsung, Motorola, and ASUS are expected to show in a few days at IFA 2015.

The Razer Nabu is finally available for pre-order, for real, starting September 15 and will start shipping, for real, in October. Hopefully with no more unexpected delays.

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.

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

Up close and personal with the next Moto 360, it would appear that things are getting a bit smaller this time around. Strange for the smartphone world where devices are always getting bigger, but perfectly reasonable for the Wild West of the wearables market. Here it seems as though the next Moto 360 keeps the "flat tire" display, changes the position of the power button, and added bit of hardware to the top and bottom for easier switching of bands.
