LG Watch Style review: The Pixel of Android Wear watches

The Watch Style is the lower-end of the two smartwatches LG has just released in conjunction with Google. It's not particularly handsome, it's not particularly feature-packed, and at $249, it's not particularly well-priced; however, it's still my favorite Android Wear smartwatch that I've used to date, and one that I think will strike well with the average consumer.

ChronoSpin is a game for Android Wear that looks like a watch face

Games on Android Wear are, for the most part, terrible. Oh, that hasn't stopped developers from trying. You can usually kill time better by simply playing a game on your phone, though. ChronoSpin is a new game for Android Wear that might actually be worth playing.

AccuWeather releases standalone Android Wear 2.0 app

AccuWeather has supported Android Wear for a while now, but the companion app has always been somewhat feature-light. It only showed data for your default location, and only displayed predicted temperatures for a few hours into the future.

Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirms the Huawei Watch 2 will be announced at MWC

The Huawei Watch was many people's favorite Android Wear smartwatch back when it was released in 2015, and it remains so because of its round screen and 'classic' watch look. Huawei CEO Richard Yu has now confirmed on Weibo that the Huawei Watch 2 will be unveiled at MWC, following earlier speculation that this would be the case.

Yu doesn't say anything about the Watch 2, but shares a promotional picture, featuring a man in sports attire wearing the watch. Could this indicate the new model is aimed at the sports watch market? This would mark quite a change from its predecessor, although it's what VentureBeat reported on last month.

Wells Fargo and CITI cards currently not supported with Android Pay on Wear

Android Pay is perhaps the most exciting aspect of Android Wear 2.0, but it has some caveats. It won't work if your phone has an unlocked bootloader, much to the disappointment of custom ROM and root users. Now it appears that some cards already compatible with Android Pay won't work on watches - namely CITI and Wells Fargo cards.

The final version of the Android Wear 2.0 SDK is out

This should come as no surprise to anyone, but Google has released the final version of the Android Wear 2.0 SDK. It adds support for everything announced with the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport yesterday, and also makes a few revisions to some of the app approval processes. On that note, there are two things in this final version to pay attention to (if you're a developer).
