Samsung is beta testing Samsung Pay for the Gear S2

Samsung Pay has been available for almost a year, but it's only worked on Samsung's phones. Now, the company is looking at expanding Pay to its line of Gear watches. Anyone in the US with a Samsung phone and a Gear S2 can give Samsung Pay a shot, but it's not as robust as the phone version.

Exclusive: These could be Google's upcoming Android Wear smartwatches

As we reported last week, Google is in the process of building two Android Wear smartwatches. At the time, we were unable to show you the watches themselves. Today, that changes - what you see in the image above could be codename "Angelfish" and "Swordfish," Google's two Assistant-enabled wearables that we believe will be released after the new Nexus phones.

Disclaimer: No matter the confidence level, there's always a chance product updates, features, and some or all details will be changed or cancelled altogether. As with all rumors, nothing is 100% until it's officially announced.

We do not have possession of any APKs we can distribute or unreleased devices, so please don't ask for them.

Samsung Announces The Gear Fit2 Sports Band And Gear IconX Wireless Earbuds

Samsung is whipping its accessory offerings into shape today with two new fitness-oriented products. The Gear Fit2 is about what you'd expect, a followup to the original Gear Fit smart sports band. The Gear IconX is something new from Samsung. It's a pair of completely wireless earbuds that include some standalone fitness tracking features.

Google's ATAP And Levi Strauss Create Commuter Trucker Jacket Using Project Jacquard's Touch-Sensitive Fabric, Available Spring 2017

There are many opinions about wearable technology, but most criticisms focus on the awkwardness – or just plain unattractiveness – of many products that have come thus far. One of the more interesting presentations from I/O 2015 came during the ATAP session, in which Project Jacquard was introduced. This is a touch-sensitive fabric that can be woven into regular clothing and used a bit like a trackpad. This technology is being put to real use, and in a partnership with Levi Strauss, the first product using Jacquard will be launching next Spring.

Levi's is calling it the Commuter Trucker Jacket, a denim jacket with Jacquard woven into the left sleeve.

Google Releases Material Design Guidelines for Creating Modern Android Wear Apps

Google may design most of the Android Wear experience, but the company doesn't control everything. One poorly designed app is all it takes to sour someone's impression of a platform. And with Android Wear getting a major update, that would be a shame. So to provide users with the best experience and increase chances that they will keep an app around, Google has released design guidelines for the latest version of its smart watch platform.

[Update: $227.72] [Deal Alert] Moto 360 Sport In Black Down To $236 On Amazon

Motorola took its time releasing the Moto 360 Sport smart watch after announcing it, probably because the device turned out to be somewhat mediocre. At $300 it was too expensive, but the latest price drop on Amazon makes it much more palatable. The black 360 Sport is on sale for $236.17 right now with Prime shipping.

Google Stops Selling The LG Watch Urbane In The Google Store

In case you missed the news, LG's Watch Urbane 2nd Edition has started popping up for pre-order after being abruptly cancelled late last year. That means Google can finally let the nearly year-old first-gen Watch Urbane die the death LG would probably prefer it died several months ago.
