Garmin channels the Force, releases pair of Star Wars-themed Legacy Saga smartwatches

After introducing what seems like a boatload of new products at IFA 2019 last month, Garmin is introducing two more: the Legacy Saga Star Wars-themed smartwatches. Predictably, one watch represents the "Light" side and the other the "Dark" side of the Force. Although both watches belong to the same Saga series, there are some important differences.

AR Stickers v1.3 reduces app size by 86% by making Star Wars and Stranger Things packs optional [APK Download]

AR Stickers launched with a handful of sticker packs, all of which were included in the main app's download. Over time, however, Google kept making each pack separate apps that you'd have to download to use, leaving 'Star Wars' and 'Stranger Things' as the only pre-installed ones. Now, Google has spun those two off as well, reducing the AR Stickers app size from 65MB to just 8.5MB.

Disney's competitive cover shooter 'Star Wars: Rivals' may not be officially available, but here is a quick trick that will get you into the game today

Back in June of 2017 Star Wars: Rivals was released as a soft launch title in Australia and New Zealand. At that time I did a brief hands-on with the cover-based corridor shooter. Well, it would appear an official launch is nearing because as of yesterday Disney announced that Star Wars: Rivals is now officially available for pre-registration. This sadly means that most people still won't be able to install the game. But I have some good news, there is a simple way to gain access to the title and download it right now.

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition sports an elaborate Easter egg featuring R2-D2

It's not uncommon to see an Easter egg in a movie, but there aren't nearly as many instances of this in movie-branded products. But the folks over at OnePlus decided to have a little fun with the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, throwing a pretty elaborate Easter egg into the box of every Star Wars version.

Sphero announces R2-D2 and BB-9E remote control droids

Sphero's BB-8 remote control toy was a massive hit when it was released in 2015, partially because it was a great product, but also because the hype machine for The Force Awakens was at full speed. Now that another main series Star Wars film is on the way, it only makes sense that Disney would again partner with Sphero. Except this time, there are two of them.

[Hands-on] Star Wars: Rivals, an uninspired corridor shooter

Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, I am wholeheartedly expecting them to release as many games, toys, mugs, pizza cutters, and door mats branded with the license as humanly possible. Frankly, Disney would be an idiot not to cash in on Star Wars' mainstream and cult followings. That is why it is no surprise to see the beta release of Star Wars: Rivals on the Play Store. It is also no surprise to see that it is a free-to-play corridor shooter rife with poor controls, repetitive levels, and loot crates that are explicitly tied to plenty of in-app purchases.
