LG G Watch R to drop in Europe first as global rollout starts

Most of the current smartwatches and Android wearables put in the market today – at least those worthy of note – can trace their very recent history back to IFA 2014 in September, because that’s where most of them got launched. This includes the LG G Watch R (the “R” stands for “round”) which was unveiled at Berlin and is slated to start its global rollout in November, with the first market to get the device being Europe.

Motorola Camera update turns Android Wear into shutter

If you have a Motorola Droid, Moto X or Moto X (2nd gen) smartphone and you love taking pictures (okay fine, specifically selfies), then you will enjoy the newest update for the Motorola Camera app. Aside from the usual bug fixes and improvements, it also has a new feature that will help you take better pictures. Oh but did we mention you need to have a smartwatch, particularly one that runs on Android Wear, to be able to enjoy the update?

Moto 360 firmware update improves performance of smartwatch

The first round-faced smartwatch running on Android Wear, the Moto 360, is pretty sweet already on its own, but of course, as with most 1st generation devices, there might still be some bugs in it. The round smartwatch owners received a prompt to download and install a new firmware update.This has reportedly bettered the performance of the wearable, even if there are no major feature-based improvements.

Wear Tip Calculator uses round-face smartwatches to the max

Round-faced smartwatches like the Moto 360 and the soon-to-come LG G Watch R may look pretty, but aside from its shape, not much differentiates it from the more common square-faced ones. But of course developers would have to eventually create apps that would specifically look good and be functional as well on round smartwatches. Wear Tip Calculator may be one of the first to do so, and while its function is simple enough, it is pretty useful if you dine out often and have trouble computing tips.

Moto 360 shows screen burn-in, Motorola working on it already

The Moto 360 is perhaps one of the most anticipated Android smartwatches in the market today. Pre-order for the Android Wear-powered device already started last week so we’re expecting people to receive their orders soon. A lot have happily received theirs but a few are reporting issues on the screen image.

New Motorola products for pre-order starting September 16

The newly-announced Motorola products, unveiled at the IFA 2014 in Berlin just two weeks ago, will now be available for pre-ordering through various sales channels. This includes the new Moto X (through carrier AT&T), the Moto Pure Edition, Moto Hint and Moto Turbo Charger. The other good news is that their round-faced smartwatch, the Moto 360, has been re-stocked after selling out since it was released in the market almost two weeks ago.

WearFaces makes Apple watch face for Android smartwatches

The more I looked at it, the more I was convinced I knew it from somewhere – it took a friend to look at my browser and say “Hey, that’s the Apple Watch, isn’t it?” For the record, I wasn’t looking at the newfangled smartwatch from Cupertino – I was looking at a smartwatch face designed by UhrArt and uploaded to an Android smartwatch via the same dev’s WearFaces app. The app allows for different watch face designs, and one of them mimicked that “colorful” design from Apple.
