New generation Moto 360 sighted yet again

Trust the Chinese to give the world a peak into the yet-to-be-revealed and upcoming gadgets ahead of official launch. If not more smartphones from manufacturers or fake ones from people who have nothing in mind but to earn money, we’ll be served with more images, leaks, or early hands-on photos.

More Android Wear smartwatches to hit the market before 2015 ends

The smartwatch era may still be in its early stages but its obvious that Google is ahead of Apple in the game--that is, if we are to look at the features and not the numbers. Android Wear as a wearable platform is quickly becoming the standard in smartwatches simply because it's Android and there are more compatibles devices that can be supported. Samsung may have the Tizen OS but once more Android Wear watches hit the market, the numbers might change.

Next LG smartwatch visits the FCC

The LG Watch Urbane is a thing of beauty. It's not the first round smartwatch from LG. There's also the LG G Watch R which was revealed ahead of IFA last year.
