[Update: 4G can now be activated] Mobvoi launches a revamped version of the TicWatch Pro with 4G/LTE

Wear OS smartwatches are seen as sub-par compared to the competition, mainly because most of them still use outdated processors or lack key features. With the TicWatch Pro, Mobvoi managed to design one of the most attractive intelligent timepieces powered by Google's OS on the market. However, despite its good selling points, the product lacked LTE connectivity, which prevented owners from using all their watch's features on the go. Thankfully, the manufacturer is announcing the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE, which builds up on its predecessor's specs and adds 4G functionality on top, confirming the leak we reported last month.

Xiaomi unveils Mi Band 4 fitness tracker with color screen, NFC, and voice assistant

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 was an insanely cheap fitness tracker (£26.99 in the UK, which works out as about $35) with a relatively impressive feature set. Its successor has just been announced by Xiaomi in China, and this time it includes a color display and microphone for voice assistant functionality. There's also a slightly more expensive variant with NFC, although it's still cheap as chips.

If you are rocking an Android Wear device that won't be getting the 2.0 update, then chances are that you're in the market for a new smartwatch (that is, if you still are digging Android Wear). One of the sharpest looking options in the current crop of devices is the second gen Moto 360. If you can forgive the flat-tire, there is a lot to like in this watch, including its price today. Right now, over at B&H, there are three different styles of the 360 on sale at some of the lowest prices we have ever seen.

[Update: OOS already] Deal Alert - LG Watch Urbane on sale for just $99.99 at Verizon

Here's a deal that may tempt you to lighten your wallet today. Verizon has the LG Watch Urbane marked down to a paltry $99.99.

[Update: Sold Out] Deal Alert: Black 42mm Moto 360 Second Generation With Black Leather Strap On Sale For $229 - Lowest Price Yet

Motorola sure knows how to make pretty Android Wear watches. I wear a Sony SW3 because it is practical, but if I needed something beautiful my top two choices would be the Huawei Watch and the Moto 360 second gen. Are you vacillating between these two watches? Well, I have some information that might make your decision easier. The Moto 360 second gen is on sale at BuyDig for $229, the lowest price we've seen yet.

There is a small catch, only one color option and size is available, the 42mm black watch with the black leather strap. That's a good looking combination though, so I think many of you will be happy with that model.

[Deal Alert] Silver & Rose Gold Asus ZenWatch First Gen $99 At Amazon

The first gen Asus ZenWatch is $99.95 today on Amazon. It's been that price before, and it will likely be that price again. The silver & rose gold model with a tan strap is the only color option.

For someone still on the sidelines wondering what this whole Android Wear craze is all about, this is a solid entry into the world of wearables. The ZenWatch sports a 1.2 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM along with a square 1.63" 320 x 320 AMOLED touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3. It's also dustproof and splashproof and has a heart rate sensor, which was oddly not included in the second gen watch (probably because people complained the one in the first gen watch isn't all that good).

[Deal Alert] ASUS Zenwatch 1st Gen On Sale For $99 At B&H If You Don't Mind Waiting (It's Backordered)

The original ASUS Zenwatch isn't the best Android Wear device on the market. It does, however, happen to be one of the cheapest options available and is a great entry-level option for someone wanting to see what this smartwatch craze is all about.

The current retail price on the Zenwatch hovers in the $130 to $150 range. Right now you can grab one on B&H for a significantly lower price of $99.99. That's a good price for a smartwatch with a heart rate sensor, a premium leather band, and pretty solid reviews.

There are a couple of small caveats to keep in mind though.

[Deal Alert] LG G Watch Urbane Available For $200 From BuyDig Via eBay Once Again

Even though it's been out for a while now, the LG G Watch Urbane is still one of the most premium Android Wear devices you can buy. Its normal price currently sits around $250, but today you can pick one up for just $200 on BuyDig via eBay. We posted this deal a couple of weeks back, but that was just days after the holidays and I expect that some of you were too broke or hung over to notice. You're welcome.

The device ships free anywhere in the US and retail tax is only charged in the state of New Jersey.
