Source: The first new smartwatch with Android Pay, the LG Watch Sport, will cost $349

After revealing late last week that LG's Watch Style will come in at $249, today we can confirm via one of our trusted sources that its bigger, LTE-enabled brother will cost $100 more. The LG Watch Sport will have an MSRP of $349 here in the US, though it is unclear if color or band options could raise that price for certain configurations.

As a reminder, the Watch Sport brings a lot of features that the Watch Style will lack: LTE for true standalone functionality, NFC for Android Pay, GPS, a heart-rate monitor, a bigger, denser screen, and more buttons.

[Update: Now ~$260] Deal alert: Grab the Gear 360 for $273 at many retailers, $77 off its original price

360 cameras are awesome. I love my LG 360 Cam and find it is perfect for encapsulating a moment in time into one shot and letting you sort of travel back in time and immerse yourself in everything around you during the second the picture or video was taken. If you haven't bought a 360 camera yet and you're wondering what the fuss is about, there's a nice deal on Samsung's Gear 360 today at several retailers dropping the price down to around $273 from its original MSRP of $350.

The Gear 360 has dual 15MP f/2.0 fisheye lenses for 3840 x 1920 360-degree (horizontally and vertically) videos and 30MP still images.

[Update OOS] Deal Alert: Samsung's truly wireless Bluetooth headphones, the Gear IconX on sale for just $79.99 at TechRabbit ($70 off)

We've been calling Bluetooth headphones, 'wireless headphones' for quite some time now. However, truly wireless headphones are a fairly new phenomena. This new generation of completely wire-free headphones are more liberating than ever, but come with a couple of trade-offs from more traditional Bluetooth earbuds. One is battery life, which tends to be shorter, and the other is price, which tends to be higher – but not today. Right now you can pick up a pair of Samsung's Gear IconX headphones for only $79.99 at TechRabbit, that's almost half off.

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe review: Buy a OnePlus 3T instead

Budget flagships are all the rage these days. After all, why would anyone pay $769 for something like a Google Pixel XL when similar or only marginally worse performance can be had from a $439 OnePlus 3T? The category has come a seriously long way since the Nexus 4 first pioneered it, largely thanks to loads of new entrants in the past few years from both new and storied nameplates.

The Honor 6X fails catastrophically in JerryRigEverything's durability testing

When companies send us review units, they usually expect that our testing will not include intentionally breaking them. That's why JerryRigEverything has a niche on YouTube. He buys and destroys phones to see how durable (or not) they are. His latest victim is the Honor 6X, and it doesn't go well for that phone. At all.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 details leak ahead of expected MWC unveiling [Update]

There's a dearth of high-end Android tablets on the market, mostly because people don't buy many of them anymore. If anyone can move a tablet, though, it's Samsung. The Galaxy Tab S2 was launched in late 2015, and now it looks like the Tab S3 is headed for MWC. A new leak lays out the specs for the device, as well as an alleged (very high) price tag in Korea.
