The Google Store Is No Longer Selling The LG G Watch, One Of The First Android Wear Devices

It was just over a year ago that we first caught wind of Android Wear. At the same time, we were introduced to the G Watch, which would be the first Wear device—released alongside the Samsung Gear Live—to be sold to the general public. Now, with the addition of the G Watch Urbane and a permanent price drop for the G Watch R, the original G Watch is headed out of the Google Store.

LG G Watch R Is Now Listed At $249 In Google Store, A $50 Price Drop

On the heels of the LG G Watch Urbane's arrival to the Google Store, the G Watch R gets a nice discount. Originally sold at $299, you can now get it for $249. This is a good deal; just several weeks ago we told you about a deal where you could get the G Watch R for $269. The price puts it at a fair distance from the newer Urbane, which is starting at $349.

LG Watch Urbane Is Now Available In The Google Store For $349, Shipping To The US, UK, Australia, And More

LG's round watch do-over just went live in the Google Store, and it can be yours for the Apple-esque price of $350. The LG Watch Urbane looks like a smoother, more attractive G Watch R, but that'll cost you an extra $50 apparently (launch prices). It's available in a number of countries, but it won't leave the warehouse for a few days yet.

[What Apple Watch Event?] Google Releases Catchy 17-Second Android Wear Ad

Apple has a big event scheduled to kick off whenever the hour, with folks looking forward to learning more about upcoming MacBooks and the Apple Watch. The latter will be a first-generation device, Apple's long-awaited debut into the wearables market.

But forget about that product for a moment and remember that, whatever the headlines, Apple's watch will hardly be the only decent smartwatch in town. Google has just released a short commercial showing consumers that Android Wear is a thing and that its watches are cool.

Pebble Introduces The Pebble Time Steel And Smartstraps That Do More Than Simply Hold The Watch To Your Wrist

Pebble has received 12 million in pledges since unveiling its updated smartwatch, but as impressive as that is, it's not what I've come here to tell you. This time around, Pebble isn't waiting half a year to update its creation with a higher-end iteration. One week after kicking off the project, the company has followed up with a second version, the Pebble Time Steel.

Like the Pebble Steel before it, the Pebble Time Steel doesn't change the internals found in its plastic sibling, except for a larger battery, which will apparently provide this model with up to 10 days of use.

A Developer Has Gotten Android Wear To Work With An iPhone Without Jailbreaking

A developer has done the (almost) unthinkable: gotten an Android Wear watch to work with an Apple iPhone. More specifically, it's a Moto 360 and an iPhone 6. Maybe more surprising is that he did not need to jailbreak the iPhone to do it, even though his happens to be. It's not exactly clear how much he needed to modify the watch, but he's obviously loaded custom software onto it. Here's a proof-of-concept video:

If you don't like videos, it shows a text message rolling in on the iPhone and an alert subsequently popping up on the Moto 360.

[What] Neptune Announces The $800 Neptune Duo: Basically A Smartwatch And A Dumb Phone, Which Makes No Sense

Imagine somebody tells you they have an idea for a revolutionary new bicycle. Except it has a gas engine. And headlights. And can be driven at up to 35MPH. You might - mistakenly! - contend that what this person is talking about is in fact a motorcycle, and that it already exists, and why on earth would you invent a motorcycle with skinny bike tires, a tragically low top speed, cantilever brakes, and no sprung suspension (concerns of cost aside)?
