Google's smartwatches may arrive in Q1 2017, will run Android Wear 2.0

Android Wear hasn't received much love in the past few months. The first major update, Android Wear 2.0, was announced back in May. Two months later, we revealed the first leaks of Google's own smartwatches, set to debut with the new update. Although developer previews for 2.0 are still arriving, the update itself has been pushed back to 2017, and multiple companies won't release any new AW devices this year.

[Deal Alert] Pebble Time Round is down to $113 ($84 off) on Amazon

 

The original Pebble predates Android Wear, and since the first model, the Pebble line has continued to improve and develop. One of their newest watches, the Pebble Time Round, has dropped in price significantly on Amazon. It's now only $113 for the Silver model on Amazon, almost half off from its original price of $199.

Michael Kors Accesss smartwatch line now available, powered by Android Wear

One of the more interesting aspects of Android Wear, and smartwatches in general, is how they are being embraced by traditional watch companies. Michael Kors, one of the most well-known fashion brands in the world, has officially released their Michael Kors Access brand of smartwatches.

There is a total of seven smartwatches to choose from, with four of the 'Bradshaw' lineup (seen above) and two more of the 'Dylan' line. The price range from $350 to $395, while expensive for an Android Wear watch, isn't nearly as pricey as the TAG Heuer Connected. All watches include exclusive Michael Kors watch faces, wireless charging, and interchangeable bands.

TAG Heuer's Android Wear Watch Is Called The Connected, Costs $1500 With Sapphire Glass, A Titanium Body, And 1GB Of RAM

TAG Heuer has now officially announced the most expensive smartwatch running Android Wear, which means (by the infallible logic of luxury watch enthusiasts) that it's also the best. To be fair, in terms of materials and technical hardware, the TAG Heuer Connected probably is the best Wear device at the moment: it uses a new-to-Wear 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor and 1GB of RAM, along with 4GB of storage and a 410mAh battery. That means it should be faster than most current Wear devices, and with double the memory, it might have significantly better performance. It had better: TAG's suggested price and the going rate on the online store is a whopping $1500.

Hands-On With The (Turned Off) LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition

Though LG said it wasn't the "star" of today's event, the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (a mouthful) did make a cameo at the presentation. We got a few minutes to play with the device hands-on, but eyes-off - the watches on display were actually powered off, so we couldn't even use them in demo mode. Still, it's worth taking a look at least at the form factor of the watch.

Motorola '360S' And '360L' Items With Different Batteries Listed On Anatel In Brazil, Point Towards Multiple Sizes For Next-Gen Moto 360

We've seen a possible early look at the next version of Motorola's Moto 360 watch earlier today, and now it looks like there are new indications of multiple models for the Android Wear line. Anatel, Brazil's federal telecom regulator (the equivalent of the FCC in the US) has listed two new Motorola devices for certification: the 360S and 360L. The product names obviously point to new watch models, but it's the batteries that should really pique your interest. The listing was spotted by 9to5 Google.

In addition to standard radio documentation for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, Anatel lists the 360S with a 270mAh battery and the 360L with a 375mAh battery.
