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.

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.

Onyx E Ink smartwatch aims for battery life

Onyx is a company that has been making digital readers with E ink screens for a while now. The benefit of using an E Ink screen on a device is that battery power is only needed when the watch refreshes the display. That means it can run longer on a single charge.

Google Glass, Android Wear notifications can’t run simultaneously

Having a pair of Google Glass could be the coolest thing today for geeks. It’s probably the best wearable tech device right now but since it is a first release, the Glass has limited features. A recent update to the MyGlass app brought bug fixes and notifications can now be sent from the phone to show on the Google Glass display screen. While the latter is a helpful feature, it disabled notifications on an Android Wear device. This means you cannot use Android Wear and Glass for notifications at the same time.

Leaks reveal GPS-sporting Fitbit Surge to be released soon

Last week, we reported on leaked marketing images and specs of the two new Fitbit products set to be released in the next few months. There's apparently a third one in the offing, and this one might just be the flagship product for the fitness band. The Fitbit Surge seems like it's meant for "serious athletes" as it has features like a built-in GPS that would benefit those who want to better track all their fitness-related activities throughout the day.

Blocks modular smartwatch lets users decide the features

Phoneblocks is a company that makes an interesting modular smartphone that users can customize by attaching the modules with the features they want and leaving the features they don’t want out. Phoneblocks is now applying that same modular approach to smartwatches with a new platform that lets users decide what features they want on their wearable called Blocks modular smartwatch.

Omate brings Lutetia, 1st smartwatch exclusively for women

Well, someone probably did think of having something like that since we are getting something like it after all. Omate is introducing to the wearable market the Lutetia, the first smartwatch that is exclusively for women.
