It's been a long time since there's been a new Android Wear watch available for pre-order, but this is the big day for the much anticipated Huawei Watch. This device starts at $349 and will eventually go all the way up to $799, but the expensive gold versions aren't part of today's pre-order. You can get the other versions at Amazon, Best Buy, and more. Read More
Asus announced its new ZenWatch 2 at Computex back in May, but not a lot was known about the watch's availability and pricing then. Now the company is ready to unveil the full details of its second-generation Android Wear device at IFA and prepare for its release on the market.
The ZenWatch 2 will come in two sizes in width: 41mm and 37mm. The first has a 1.63" 320x320 screen, runs on a 400mAh battery that lasts about 66 hours on ambient mode, and takes 22mm straps. The second has a smaller 1.45" 280x280 display (which rounds out to about the same ppi as the larger watch), runs on a 300mAh battery that goes up to 57 hours in ambient mode, and takes 18mm straps. Both have a Snapdragon 400, with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.1, Wifi, and IP67 water-resistance rating. Read More
Two trusted sources have divulged information about an upcoming LG Android wear smartwatch to us. Unfortunately, we don't have a name, and we don't have any images we can share. But we do have a very good idea what the watch will look like, and I'll do my best to describe it to you. We also know that the device may be announced as early as the end of this month (September). So, here's what we know.
First: the screen is still circular. It's not clear if it's the same size as the G Watch R and Watch Urbane, though. The most immediately recognizable change on this unnamed LG watch coming from the Watch Urbane is the addition of two more buttons on the body. Read More
CyanogenMod has changed a lot over the years, but we're still seeing custom ROMs pumped out. The 12.1 release is the latest one to go stable. It offers users the ability to run Android 5.1.1, IMAP idle support, and SDK v1.
CyanogenMod has also pushed out new stable builds for versions 11.0 and 12.0. These are security releases that address a number of security issues, including Stagefright. Get the update not for new features but to make sure that your phone or tablet is safe.
Builds are only available for devices where maintainers have marked builds as 'Good to go.' So if the gadget you're holding isn't yet on the list, you will have to be patient or opt to install one of the pre-release builds instead. Read More
Yesterday famed leaker @evleaks shared yet another confirmation of the 2nd generation Moto 360's design. Today, @upleaks is taking things to another level. Not only do we get another glimpse at the upcoming Android Wear device, we see a second model with a plastic band.
This more casual smartwatch is the Moto 360 Sport, according to @upleaks. It looks not too dissimilar to the Sony Smartwatch 3. Only this time you have a circular display, flat tire still included. Read More
Android 5.0 brought major changes to the platform, and that made it hard to get the Xposed system tweaking framework functional. The project's developer has finally announced that Xposed for Lollipop is ready after months of betas and unofficial builds. That doesn't mean it's completely without risks, but nothing should be obviously broken. Read More
Google has officially announced Android Wear for iOS, and above you can see a picture showing as much - an iPhone 6 running what looks to be an Android Wear app connected to an LG Watch Urbane. Wear for iOS is compatible with the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus devices running iOS 8.2 or higher.
Here's a look at it on the upcoming Huawei Watch, showing a Hangouts conversation, as well. Read More
Do you have more money than sense, and also use Android phones? Then the $17,000 Apple Watch Edition isn't an option for you. You'll have to make do with the somewhat less insane (but still pretty ridiculous) LG Watch Urbane Luxe. It's a $1200 version of the Urbane with a nicer strap and 23k gold plated body. Read More
I would say you should feel excited, but we've actually seen the upcoming Moto 360 reboot a few times already. In yet another confirmation that Motorola is on the verge of announcing at least one and probably two new models of the Moto 360, our industry's most famous tipster, @evleaks, briefly came out of retirement to share the above image with the world.
In context, there is no useful additional information offered.
Our highly scientific analysis in Android Police's group chat has revealed that these two renders appear to be the same size in terms of watch face, so are not both the rumored 360S and 360L; just one of the two in different style combinations. Read More
