[VaporWear] Misfit is now saying the Vapor Android Wear watch doesn't have standalone GPS

When things do look too good to be true, they might actually turn out to be just that. The Misfit Vapor was announced in January with what seemed to be a proprietary OS, but when it was later revealed that the smartwatch/activity tracker would run Android Wear 2.0, we were very excited. It suddenly became one of the best value-for-money Wear watches (well, if you don't care about NFC for payments) thanks to its activity tracker roots, big screen with ambient light sensor and no flat tire, interesting touch bezel for controls, 50m water resistance, $199.99 price tag, and integrated GPS to boot...

[Deal Alert] Best Buy has 2nd-gen Fossil Q Marshal, Q Wander, and Q Founder for as little as $153 (40% off)

Fossil's watches pack decent hardware, but the slightly-too-high prices are causing people to turn away and go for more mainstream options. It's a good thing, then, that Best Buy is offering price drops of up to $110 on three Fossil second-generation smartwatches today. These discounts are the biggest we've seen on these watches yet, and they definitely make the Q Marshal, Q Wander, and Q Founder more enticing.

Despite attempts to the contrary, the smartwatch industry has slowed. Surprisingly, it's been the luxury brands that have kept Android Wear alive well into 2017.

This is the Tambour Horizon, a smartwatch whose price starts at the paltry sum of $2,450.

Gear S3 Classic LTE now available from Verizon

Carriers and manufacturers are still trying to figure out how to sell smartwatches, and the latest idea is to make watches your phone away from phone. The LG Watch Sport and Verizon Wear24 are two Android Wear watches with LTE connectivity, allowing you to pop in a SIM card and receive phone calls and texts without a Bluetooth connection to your phone.

The Gear S3 and S3 Classic are Samsung's latest Tizen-powered watches, but until now, only a Wi-Fi version of the Classic model was available. An LTE model was announced in March, and it's finally available today at AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.

[Funny But True] Video shows what an honest smartwatch commercial should be like

Smartwatches have been available for a few years, but I'm not sure we have yet found a really legitimate and indispensable use for them.
