Nike+ Apple Watch bands match new Air VaporMax running shoes

It wasn't that too long ago, just last month in fact, when Nike announced a fresh new Apple Watch from its NikeLab collection. Pushing its partnership with Apple, it is pushing out new bands for the Apple Watch Nike+ series. These bands, however, have a special trait, aside from their rugged good looks. They are designed to match the color and style of its new line of Air VaporMax running shoes which, in turn, are designed to match the colors of the sky from "Day to Night".

Apple's next smartwatch is expected to test blood sugar levels, and the prototype has reportedly been strapped to none other than CEO Tim Cook.

Likely to be the flagship feature is something that, until now, has only really been offered by medically-licensed devices.

ExxonMobil’s SpeedPass+ brings mobile payments to Ford SYNC 3 and Apple Watch

Back in January, ExxonMobil announced that its SpeedPass+ app would soon support mobile payments through Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system.

Apple is now a better wearable seller than Fitbit [Updated]

This just isn't Fitbit's year. It is believed to be in some financial crisis, or at least will soon be. The situation was dire enough for Fitbit to considering jumping on the smartwatch bandwagon, which is already rumored to be delayed. And to add insult to injury, Strategy Analytics released numbers showing that Fitbit is no longer the top dog when it comes to wearables. It isn't even second dog, with both Apple and Xiaomi overtaking it.

Apple’s paper bag patent granted

Apple’s paper bag patent granted

Back in July of 2016, Apple filed a patent for a paper bag - here in May of 2017, Apple has been granted that patent.

This is the sort of bag that customers feel guilty about throwing away, it's made so extremely well and designed so nicely.

Some big names quietly called time on their Apple Watch apps

High profile mobile apps have been quietly dropping support for Apple Watch, reigniting questions about just what the main point of wearable tech is. The smartwatch most recently spawned a new, NikeLab version, with an updated strap and a focus on fitness. Indeed, Apple billed most of its improvements in the Apple Watch Series 2 as being around health. Question is, are people using their Apple Watch for anything else?

First-gen Apple Watch gets another year of warranty coverage over battery issues

If there's one thing Apple has a great reputation for, it's servicing their devices and addressing product defects when they're under warranty.

Apple Watch NikeLab limited edition tones down the color

Apple Watch NikeLab limited edition tones down the color

There isn't much variety in the Apple Watch world, which isn't surprising considering Apple dictates what and what doesn't qualify as an Apple Watch. But what it lacks in other form factors or designs it makes up for in styles, branding, and limited edition models. Last year, Apple hooked up with Nike to show that the Apple Watch isn't just a fashion statement but also a runner's best friend. This year it is doing so again but with a more muted style. Unlike the Apple Watch Nike+ and its neon highlights, this limited edition Apple Watch NikeLab embraces a less glaring appearance while keeping the same features that runners and marathoners loved.

Apple tipped to be working on non-invasive glucose monitor

Apple tipped to be working on non-invasive glucose monitor

Wearables are great for keeping track of activity and reminding us to stay fit, but they are hardly medical devices. The closest some, but not all, get is having a heart rate monitor or a blood oxygen level sensor. In the very near future, however, at least one wearable might have one more thing: a sugar level monitor. According to insider sources, Apple is probably closer anyone has ever been to creating the holy grail of the intersection of medicine and mobile technology: a glucose monitor that you can simply wear on your skin, just like an Apple Watch.

Pokemon Yellow runs on Apple Watch thanks to GBC emulator

The Pokemon fever has hit the Apple Watch. Well, sort of. We’ve seen all sorts of crazy, and admittedly useless, antics done on Android Wear smartwatches but not so much on the Apple Watch. Well, the Apple Watch does have some “hacks”, and sometimes for things that matter the most. Like, for example, being able to play Pokemon Yellow on the Apple Watch 2, thanks to an Game Boy Color emulator “appropriately” named “Giovanni”.
