smartwatch

More colorful straps, watch faces for Android Wear added

By now, you've probably decided that you like Android Wear, that you want a wearable, and that you're finally getting a smartwatch. There are several models from different manufacturers already you might have a hard time choosing only one. Personally, I like the Huawei watch and the customizable Moto 360 and maybe in future, that Tag Heuer smartwatch. The smartwatch game appeals to me because there's so much you can do with such a small device and wear it around your wrist.

Samsung to reportedly release their first round-faced smartwatch

Round-faced smartwatches used to be a big deal, if only because there were only very few in the market. Back then it was just the LG G Watch R and the Moto 360 competing in the Android Wear market. But now there are other players like Huawei and LG has released other models as well, trying to get a piece of the pie and attracting those who would like a wearable that looked like a normal watch but had the functionality of a gadget.

Picture of supposed new Moto 360 smartwatch leaked on Weibo

While there are a growing number of players in the smartwatch market, one of the earliest OEMs to have made their mark in the market is Motorola and its Moto 360. Supposedly, it was the first round-faced Android Wear device to come out, but LG G Watch R beat them to the punch in terms of launching. And while the Moto 360 received stellar reviews, it just went quiet all of a sudden. However, a new image leaked on China's social networking giant might see the revival of the smartwatch.

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 a new portable charger called NomadKey for Pebble is tiny, convenient and just perfect for your quick charging needs.

Olio brings its first smartwatch to the wearable market

While most of the current smartwatches in the market are trying to outdo each other when it comes to features and looks, almost turning it into a really tiny smartphone, one company believes that the simpler and the prettier, the better. And it is their first product ever, so it's a pretty bold move going up against more established OEMs. But Olio is confident that they'll find a niche amongst those who prefer their notifications few and their smartwatches stylish.

Have a 30-day battery life smartwatch with Vector

With Google and Apple once again going head to head with thier respective smartwatch platforms (and Pebble still surviving with its own niche market), is there room really for another brand and platform in the market? Of course in this digital world, the answer is probably always yes, and especially if your product is promising a battery life that would last for 30 days. Vector is the newest kid in the market, and it can be an alternative to the leading wearable brands.

Soon on your wrist: Motion X for Swiss Horological Smartwatches

Smartwatches have both been a boon and a threat to regular watch makers. While some people have totally "switched allegiance" to their more technologically advanced younger siblings, still some longed for the elegant and traditional design and functionality of "old school" watches.

Some have grouped together to form a group called the Swiss Horological Smartwatches.
