Smartwatches are great for staying on top of notifications, sending quick messages, and keeping track of fitness statistics. Right now, Amazon is offering big savings on a number of smartwatches from the likes of Fossil, Skagen, and Armani. There are options that will look good on anyone's wrist, and the prices start at just $169 for some of the best Wear OS options you'll find available today.
Android 11 has been out for a while now, and though things might look pretty similar coming from Android 10, there are plenty of changes inside, from revamped privacy and security to partitioning "conversations" into their own new notification category. Now that you've had some time to play with this latest version and you've read our review, here's the Android Police changelog for Android 11.
While it seems like most of today's Wear OS watches come from Fossil, premium watch maker Citizen is finally introducing a device running Google's wearable OS. Citizen may be a major name in the watchmaking world, but the CZ Smart seems perfectly average for a smartwatch — although that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Google Fit has been in a state of limbo for a while now. It has always lagged behind competing services from Apple, Samsung, and others, and sometimes has broke entirely. Thankfully, Google has revealed a major update to Fit today, along with a few minor new features for Wear OS.
Google TV may be the hot new thing, but Nvidia's Shield TV is still one of the most popular Android TV devices out there. We called it the best Android TV box at the time of release, and it's getting even better thanks to a new update rolling out now.
Essential may not be around anymore, but that doesn't mean the talented team that made up the company is taking a break. Essential's head of R&D, Jason Keats, founded OSOM Products earlier this year with a handful of former employees on board. Now a new interview has revealed a glimpse into the future of OSOM — and it's a vision that's focused pretty much entirely on user privacy.
Google may have introduced Google TV earlier this year, but Apple TV has been around long before that. Problem is, there hasn't been any Apple TV Android app, and that includes for Android TV devices — at least, until now. Select Sony ATV models are receiving an update that installs the Apple TV app, which includes access to Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, new and popular movies, and personalized and curated recommendations. A month after its announcement, the app has now arrived in the Play Store.
Luxury watch brand Montblanc announced its Summit 2+ smartwatch back in March. The Wear OS watch is now available to order from Verizon for an eye-boggling $1,170. It doesn't offer much that really stands out except for two things: built-in LTE connectivity and a price tag that's higher than anybody should probably pay.
A Nokia-branded Android TV set-top box is coming to Europe. Called the Streaming Box 8000, the new device won't actually have anything to do with Nokia or HMD Global, who makes the Nokia-branded Android phones we're all used to now. It costs 100€, but what sets it apart from the masses of cheaper dongles is its faster chipset and a ton of ports.
