LG G Watch

Android Wear update comes to LG G Watch

The Android Wear platform update has been highly anticipated but we knew it might take a while before Google releases it. It was first rumored for an October 15 launch but we saw nothing. We heard it all clear that Google is releasing a new version of the Android Wear but now we’re not sure what Google is calling it or when it will be announced. However, some people have sighted that the LG G Watch has started to receive update for their Android Wear with a couple of new features.

LG details round-face G Watch R smartwatch

Motorola thought they had it in the bag with the first and only (so far, or so they thought) round-face smartwatch on the Android Wear platform with the Moto 360 (still yet to be released). But LG apparently had their ace in the bag when they announced their very own circular wearable with the LG G Watch R and this week at the IFA 2014 in Berlin, they finally displayed and made accessible the first smartwatch with a round P-OLED display.

Android Wear crucial features, updates by end of the year

As we’ve written about before, it seems like smartwatches might be taking centre stage at the IFA 2014 tech expo in Berlin. There will be a lot of eyeballs on Android Wear, as more wearables will be added to the platform to join LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and the upcoming Moto 360, especially since rival Apple is also rumoured to be announcing their own wearable device. CNet sat down with Google executives to talk about their future plans for the smartwatch platform.

Moduul gives your LG G Watch a pretty charging dock

Smartwatches (well most of them) are some of the prettiest gadgets that you can own. But if you think that the accessories to your accessory are a bit of a clunker, then you would agree with Aerios, a tech design firm from Australia, that even those things should be attractive in itself. The Moduul LG G Watch Charging Dock gets rid of the cheap and plastic accessories and replaces them with something more aesthetically-pleasing but still as effective as their ugly counterparts.

Is this LG’s new, round smartwatch?

LG’s G Watch can be considered the first Android Wear smartwatch, if you’re keeping track of that sort of thing. The Moto 360 was then the second, and rounded out the Android Wear offerings (see what I did there?). A few flagship wearables later, LG is back with a second smartwatch, and they’ve taken a hint from Motorola this time.

LG reportedly outing a G Watch 2 at IFA 2014

It’s only been months since Google I/O in July, and only months since LG launched and gone to market with its wearable device, the LG G Watch. But what is this we’re hearing? LG wants to rectify the almost pedestrian design and aesthetic of the G Watch with a new version to come out at the IFA 2014 in Berlin? Most likely a good move for them.

Kiwi for Android Wear controls smartphone with gestures

If it’s always been your dream to control your smartphone with Jedi mind tricks, well you’re one step closer to that with a new app for your smartwatch. Kiwi for Android Wear allows you to control your smartphone through your wearable device not by actually touching it but through hand gestures that are set for specific actions. Yes, just a wave of your hand can now let you use your gadgets even without taking it out of your bag or pocket.

Google launches four Android Wear ads

It may only have two smartwatches (soon to three) running under its platform but Android Wear may soon be the most popular one for wearables. With Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch and the entry this summer of the Moto 360, the first round face smartwatch, it is poised to slowly gain in popularity, at least for the Android community. Google uploaded four new ads on their YouTube channel, showcasing the capabilities and beauty of smartwatches running on Android Wear.

LG to roll out G Watch update after corrosion complaints

LG’s G Watch was a perfectly usable smartwatch, with features that you can easily acclimatize to, but that was before people started noticing corrosion issues on the five exposed contact points behind the watch, which was for charging via the dock. People were also complaining about irritation while wearing the smartwatch, again from the said contact points. The upcoming OTA update for the device looks like a solution for this issue.
