Huawei Watch hands-on: Prettiest Android Wear yet

Huawei Watch hands-on: Prettiest Android Wear yet

As Mobile World Congress 2015 is now in full swing, Huawei has wasted no time in announcing its latest product, the Android-powered Huawei Watch. As the company's first smartwatch, the Huawei Watch sports a stunning design, clearly resembling a classic timepiece over a tech wearable. We've had a brief opportunity to play with Huawei's current Watch prototype, and right now it's running the same looped Android Wear demo we saw on the very first smartwatches back at Google I/O in 2014.

Huawei’s TalkBand N1 wants desperately to be fashionable

Huawei’s TalkBand N1 wants desperately to be fashionable

Huawei has a new set of Bluetooth headphones that also serve as a fitness tracker, and it’s hoping you’ll like it so much that you’ll wear it as a necklace even when you’re not working out. The Huawei TalkBand N1 isn’t the first paid of Bluetooth headphones we’ve ever seen, but they’re certainly some of the smallest: just 18g despite including active noise cancelation and a nifty magnetic clasp which holds the earbuds together around your neck when they’re not in your ears.

Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on: Double-duty wearable

Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on: Double-duty wearable

Last year, Huawei tried to convince us that we needed a combination Bluetooth headset and activity tracker; for MWC 2015, it’s the turn of its glamorous sibling, the Huawei TalkBand B2. Hewn from metal and leather rather than the plastic of its B1 predecessor, and targeting wearers who might be looking to replace a traditional watch rather than fitness band, the TalkBand B2 is fronted with a 0.73-inch AMOLED display, while inside there’s a self-learning algorithm that claims to cut down on fake readings.

HP Spectre x360 hands-on: When PC makers get OCD

HP Spectre x360 hands-on: When PC makers get OCD

The HP Spectre x360 is, if you're brave enough to play Devil’s Advocate, the Windows notebook you create when you channel Apple levels of obsessive-compulsion. Latest in HP’s high-end ultraportable family, the new Spectre isn’t just a capable aluminum laptop but a turning point in involvement between an OEM and Microsoft: a never-before-seen investment in time, energy, and Very Clever People. In fact, you could well argue that the Spectre x360 is the Surface Laptop that Microsoft refuses to make. I caught up with both companies to get my hands on their collaborative aluminum slab, and find out what makes it really special.

LG Watch Urbane hands-on – Android Wear in metal

LG Watch Urbane hands-on – Android Wear in metal

You can’t accuse LG of slacking on Android Wear, with the LG Watch Urbane the third model to run Google’s smartwatch platform. Announced a few weeks back, but making its official debut here at Mobile World Congress 2015, the new smartwatch keeps the circular P-OLED touchscreen of its G Watch R predecessor, but frames it in a brand new, high-quality metal casing for a feel more akin to traditional timepieces.

LG Watch Urbane LTE hands-on – Phone freedom

LG Watch Urbane LTE hands-on – Phone freedom

LG has two smartwatches for MWC 2015, but it’s the LG Watch Urbane LTE that’s arguably the most interesting. Packing LTE for standalone connectivity rather than demanding a nearby paired smartphone, and running not Android Wear but a heavily modified version of webOS, it may look like its Watch Urbane sibling, but that’s only skin - or metal - deep. Read on for some first-impressions from here in Barcelona.

Huawei Watch teased as luxury Android Wear option

Huawei Watch teased as luxury Android Wear option

The world clearly needs another circular smartwatch, and Huawei is hoping that its unimaginatively-titled Huawei Watch will be the one to end up on your wrist. Expected to make its official debut at Mobile World Congress 2015 on Sunday, but already previewed in a pair of videos, the Android Wear timepiece aims at the classier end of the scale, with a sleek stainless steel casing, minimal ornamentation, and of course that round touchscreen.

Meizu teases its Ubuntu-powered MX4 for MWC 2015

Meizu teases its Ubuntu-powered MX4 for MWC 2015

We knew that Ubuntu Phones were coming from Spain's bq and China's Meizu, so the only question really was "when?". With bq revealing the Aquaris E4.5 early this month, it was only a matter of time before others followed suit. It seems that Meizu will be taking advantage of MWC next week to do just that. It has just "teased" over at its Twitter account a Meizu MX4 that, without a sliver of a doubt, is running Ubuntu Phone instead of its own custom Android ROM.

ARCHOS smartphones bring Mediatek to MWC 2015

ARCHOS smartphones bring Mediatek to MWC 2015

A number of new ARCHOS smartphones are headed to Mobile World Congress 2015, each of them with MediaTek quad-core processors and relatively low price points. This is not the first time ARCHOS has released smartphones at this time of year - they have the last several years running, in fact. It is the first time they're bringing three phones with Android 4.4 KitKat. They're all coming with displays larger than 5-inches, as well - so that age of small-screen smartphones is pretty much over for this brand.
