Google Glass 2: Enterprise Edition revealed in photos

The second edition Google Glass header has appeared, and it looks... very similar to the first. This is what Google calls the "Enterprise Edition" of the headset, aiming it directly at the industry that decided it was a device that'd be helpful - businesses. Using this headset in the line of duty in a wide variety of trades has been a real boon for the popularity of the device, and here it would appear that it's been kept afloat by the segment that Google doesn't normally go after - not with as much veracity as the consumer world, anyway.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part II: what no other device has

While my first inclination was to title this post "what no other smartwatch has", that just wouldn't be accurate. What we've got here is a bona-fide piece of technology in the Moto 360 Sport that's never been released in any device before. Here, according to Motorola, the Moto 360 Sport equips a "first of its kind LCD display." It's a first of its kind, that is to say, in that it "combines a traditional backlit transmissive screen with a front lit reflective technology." The best of both worlds - always visible.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.

Kyoto University: no smartwatches during entrance tests

Smartwatches are the perfect cheating tool: they're small, easy to conceal, and can be loaded with information before an exam. Some schools and universities have banned smartwatches during certain examinations as a result, and latest among them is Japan's Kyoto University. In a statement late last week, the university said it is banning smartwatches during entrance exams starting in 2016.

Pebble Classic gets Timeline this month, Android testers wanted

If you're a proud owner of Pebble's very first attempt at a smartwatch, or maybe even its metallic counterpart, you might have gotten a tinge jealous of all the attention being lavished on the more recent Pebbles, especially as far as software features are concerned. Although some of those said features do require certain hardware, some, like the core Timeline feature, doesn't. Well, good news loyal fans! As promised, Pebble is bringing Firmware 3.0, with its Timeline and unlimited apps, to Pebble. And it's all happening this month!

Apple Watch 2 release dates and details slipping through cracks

One year on from the first release of the very first Apple Watch and some slightly more solid rumors have just begun to appear. While we've been hearing conjecture on the next model just about as long as we've been able to try the first Apple Watch on, this week we're having a look at the details we're sensing are close enough to the mark to speak of. Remember, as always - it's not 100% confirmed until Apple says it, but given the relative predictability of release schedules in the company's past several years, there are some bits we can glean.

Gear S2 to get Samsung Pay supports in 2016

Smartwatches with circular faces have proven to be among the more popular designs with the Moto 360 and the Samsung Gear S2 among the offerings. When the Gear S2 launched, Samsung had intended to make Samsung Pay available for the smartwatch in November. Word is that the launch of Samsung Pay on the device will now be pushed to sometime in 2016.

Omate Rise smartwatch time-limited Indiegogo campaign skyrockets

We've seen a few crazy crowdfunding campaigns before, but most of them had insane pitches and promises, not all of which are able to deliver. Omate's new Indiegogo campaign, on the other hand, is crazy because of its short duration. Available for little less than three days, the Omate has returned to crowdfunding to make its new Rise smartwatch a reality. And looks like it will indeed happen, at least financially speaking, considering the campaign has already raised more than three times its funding goal.

Now the Fossil Q Founder in Google Store is really for sale

Just last week, we saw Fossil's first Android Wear smartwatch make its way to the Google Store, the tech giant's specially branded store for hardware. Back then, we surmised that the Q Founder would soon expand its availability to this particular retail source. True enough, the Fossil Q Founder is now on sale directly from Google, giving the fashionable smartwatch the Android maker's blessing and making it available to more potential buyers who normally don't have access to Fossil's online and retails stores.

Recon Instruments app binds GoPro HERO4 with Oakley Airwave snow goggles

Winter is coming. That cliche might be ominous for some, but for snowboarding fans, it's the reason and season to be jolly. But in this hi-tech age of action cams and live streaming, snowboarding is no longer something you can only watch from the sidelines. But snow and wind are unpredictable as weather and don't always play nice with our best laid plans. With Recon Instruments' new Airwave GoPro Connect app, snowboarders need no longer risk their safety, or their fingers, just to control GoPro HERO camera.

This cop cam lets you watch in real-time

Social media like Twitter has meant emergencies and security incidents now play out in real-time, but there's nothing like a first-person view for the full story. Wearable cameras are becoming more common on the uniforms of police and other first-responders, but Liquid Image's Ego LS 800 promises something new: the ability to remotely connect and see exactly what the cop sees.
