LG G Watch R, 1st Watch Urbane joins Android Wear 2.0 club

Almost mirroring the fragmentation on Android for smartphones, Android Wear 2.0's rollout is happening bit by bit and was even held back for a while by an undisclosed bug. But more than that, there are also smartwatches that may not even get the update at all. So it's probably with great joy that owners of the LG G Watch R, LG's first round Android Wear watch, and the first gen Watch Urbane were greeted by the update that brought their 2015 smartwatches to the present.

Pebble update keeps your watch ticking when the clouds fall

Pebble, the company, is dead but its smartwatches are still out there in the wild. People still hold on to the remnants of a once highly popular crowdfunded project. This creates a conundrum for those users, however. The smartwatch connects to remote Pebble servers for some functionality but Fitbit, who now owns Pebble's IP, has no plans on keeping those running indefinitely. Trying to do good by its loyal community who stuck with it through thick or thin, Pebble is pushing out an update that will put the smartwatches on life support when those server lights finally go dark.

Android Wear 2.0 update is being delayed due to a bug

The official launch of Android Wear 2.0, which happened last month, was supposed to have happened around December last year. Almost true to its delayed nature, the actual rollout of the update is going to be delayed yet again.

Garmin Forerunner 935 smartwatch helps athletes train smarter

The mobile world might be awash with news about the Galaxy S8 and its little friends, but some companies still seem to have a smartwatch hangover from Baselworld last week. Coming late to the party is Garmin, which, contrary to the trend of recent smarwatch announcements, isn't coming out with an Android Wear 2.0 wearable. Instead, the Forerunner 935 is more like a superpowered fitness tracker with a watch face that has one specific objective: to help athletes, especially runners, train better.

Samsung Gear smartwatch rotary dial could also have a screen

Samsung has yet to prove that it can do flexible and foldable devices, but it seems to already be dreaming up of something different yet also ambitious already. A recent patent application reveals that Samsung has an idea for a rather interesting and almost literal twist to its Gear smartwatch. Instead of a plain, boring rotating bezel, future Gear watches might have dials that not only rotate but also display data at the edges. This way, you can take a glance at information whether you're viewing the smartwatch from the top or from the sides.
