Deus Ex Aria brings gesture control power to your wearable

The idea of a smartwatch goes beyond it being used as a small wrist computer, health and fitness tracker, and a notifications device. The technology is new but it has been rapidly evolving, thanks to smartwatch developers especially those who believe that Android Wear is THE future of wearables.

Pre-orders for Pebble Time devices now up on Best Buy

True enough, as previously announced, the brand new Pebble Time devices are already up for pre-order on the Best Buy website starting today. The much awaited colored and touch screen smartwatches from one of the pioneers in wearables started out as a Kickstarter project, but now that the supporters have finally gotten theirs, they are opening up orders to the public, but only if you live or your delivery address is in the US. The rest of the world will have to wait a little longer.

Pebble Time pre-orders on Best Buy will start by June 22

Now that the Kickstarter supporters have received their Pebble Time (supposedly) by this time, what about the next-to-early adapters who want to have their own new smartwatch? Well, if you're eager to have one, you'd have to wait a little longer. But the good news is that you can pre-order already by June 22 through their exclusive partner is BestBuy.com, if you live in the US, that is. If you live somewhere else, then you'd have to wait until the US residents have pre-ordered theirs.

The Aria adds gesture control to your Android Wear smartwatch

Truth be told, there were a couple of things manufacturers – and even Android developers themselves – were willing to sacrifice just to have a microcomputer strapped on to your wrist. In situations where you are doing stuff where your hands are busy (don’t get any ideas) like eating, brushing your teeth, playing ping-pong, or anything that will stop you from swiping your smartwatch to see notifications – we were willing to gloss over that. But really, someone should have thought about it, and it’s about time “The Aria” came out – because someone did think about it.

Stop! Pebble Time shipping on May 27

The original Pebble smartwatch was the first smartwatch to be particularly successful on Kickstarter and commercially. After the Pebble landed on the scene, there were hoards of other smartwatches that launched and sold decently. Fans of the Pebble watch looking for the next big thing from the company will already know about the Pebble Time smartwatch.

Some apps in Apple’s App Store rejected for mentioning Pebble support

The Pebble smartwatch and OS may have been around longer than either the Android Wear platform and the Apple Watch, but that doesn't mean it's going to get a "free pass", at least not from Apple. Reports say that some apps are being rejected from publication in the Apple App Store, because they make mention of Pebble Smartwatch support. This doesn't bode well for the rumor that Google plans to make their platform open to iOS as well.

Charge your Pebble smartwatch on the go with NomadKey

If your original Pebble smartwatch is a hotbed of activity, meaning you get notifications every few seconds, or you constantly use it to monitor your workouts and activities, then chances are, you would need to constantly charge your wearable device. But since it has quite a unique charger, as compared to the micro USBs of most smartphones or gadgets, that just means additional baggage for you. But a new portable charger called NomadKey for Pebble is tiny, convenient and just perfect for your quick charging needs.

Pebble thinks Apple, Samsung over complicate smartwatches

Pebble has set the stage for the smartwatch industry. The Pebble team has put into action ideas of a smartwatch that (admit it or not) Apple presented with an iPod Nano worn as a watch. Other manufacturers soon followed even supported by Google with the Android Wear. And then Apple officially entered the scene, only to leave the fan boys anticipating for a few long months. After a long time of waiting, the Cupertino company is finally releasing the actual Apple Watch on April 24 with a premium price tag.
