It would appear that Samsung's readiness for launching their own Rose Gold and Platinum models for the Samsung Gear S2 has become a reality, as both models will be coming to Samsung online, Amazon, Best Buy, and a few other stores imminently. Inside, the watches remain the same. Same innards as the Samsung Gear S2 models that were first launched late last year.

Android Wear speakers activate today

Android Wear speakers activate today

Starting this afternoon, Android Wear smartwatches will be able to use their built-in speakers. Just so long as they have them installed. Users who have a Huawei Watch or the ASUS ZenWatch 2 (49mm) will be getting an Android Wear update that may surprise them. Believe it or not, these two watches (and some future watches) have a speaker inside that hasn't yet been activated. After this update from Google, it's go time.

Razer Nabu Watch hands-on

Razer Nabu Watch hands-on

One of the most unexpected things that I was able to see while visiting with Razer at CES was a product that actually has very little to do with gaming at all. Back in 2014, the company announced, and later launched their fitness band, dubbed the Nabu. Well the Nabu is present here at CES once again, but in the form of a watch.

Samsung Gear S2 iOS compatibility coming this year

Samsung Gear S2 iOS compatibility coming this year

When the original Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch was revealed, it wasn't prepared for the full collection of smartphones on the market. Android and Tizen would work, sure, but not the most popular smartphone on the planet - the iPhone. Now, according to Samsung representatives speaking at CES 2016, they're going to be bringing iOS compatibility to the Samsung Gear S2 by the end of the year. "This year" they said.

Luxury watchmaker Breitling, most known for their aviation-related mechanical watches, has made its first entry into the smartwatch market. The company has just released its Exospace B55 timepiece, a "connected watch" that focuses on smartwatch-like notifications over running full-blown apps like the Apple Watch or Samsung Gear S2. This strategy sees Breitling joining other traditional watchmakers like TAG Heuer and Fossil in appealing to those who would still prefer wearing standard timepieces.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was ever-so-slightly more difficult to work with than its competition. Here in 2015 you have the choice of a replaceable strap with the Moto 360 (2015 edition) with a more traditional set of watch strap arms or using the Sport, a watch with one strap that's attached directly to the bulk of the watch.

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

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.

Apple Watch 2 release dates and details slipping through cracks

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.

Swatch VISA pay-by-wrist release date tapped for early 2016

Swatch VISA pay-by-wrist release date tapped for early 2016

VISA announces with Swatch that they'll be doing a sort of team-up effort in the not-so-smartwatch business. They'll be rolling with NFC in the strap of the watch line Swatch Bellamy. This has to do with an author by the name of Edward Bellamy who wrote a novel in 1888 by the name of "Looking Backward 2000-1887". This novel envisioned "a utopian world in which cash has been replaced by credit/debit cards," the first recorded mention of such a technology.
