Hyundai’s Blue Link app now available for Android Wear

A man is walking across a full parking lot, when he realizes he forgets where he parked his car. He speaks into his watch, saying "Find car." He glances at the watch, and immediately walks towards the located car, speaks into his wrist again, and the door opens. No, this isn't a scene from a sci-fi movie back in the 90s. This can be an actual real-life scene, that is, if you're a Hyundai car owner. Welcome to life with your Blue Link smartwatch app.

Sony SmartWear luau: Steel SmartWatch 3, Smart B-Trainer headset

We've seen a lot of new gadgets and gizmos at the start of CES 2015 yesterday and tonight, it's Sony's turn on the stage. While not giving any clues about the next Xperia devices, the manufacturer is focusing on its SmartWear line. Nothing exactly new aside from what it calls a prototype device, but fans of Sony's smartwatches will most likely be delighted to know that the latest model now comes with a stainless steel edition. Sony has also improved its Lifelog platform to include more apps and services for your life and activity monitoring needs.

Smart watches have created itself a new category within the technology industry. With so many different options out there, who knows what’s best and most comfortable. It all boils down to opinion and preference. Lenovo has rolled out a new contender that might be able to beat out the competition.

A clean metal body front cover with smooth rubber straps (~30 grams) and new features that notify you’ve steered too far from your phone make it stand out.

Omate to release two new affordable circular smartwatches

It seems like affordable smartwathes is the name of the game this early in 2015 as various OEMs and manufacturers claim that they have the best "cheapest" wearable in the market. The newest one to join the fray is Omate, known for producing stylish smartwatches, and this time around they're bringing more accessible (but not really less stylish) wearables, the Roma and the Racer.

Montblanc brings smartwatch functions to the e-Strap

Smartwatches are still in their early stage but the wearable device industry has a lot of potential. A few manufacturers have jumped into the bandwagon and we can expect that this year, more models will be introduced. We noted recently in a blog roundup that there was an explosion of wearables after Google introduced Android Wear--the wearable OS. Google made smartwatches a hot commodity although companies have yet to standardize the technology. A number of companies and developers are looking into smartwatches, introducing models in different styles, shapes, and functions left and right. But not Montblanc, the luxury brand wants to venture into the mobile industry by bringing fine watchmaking and wearable technology together.

Activite Pop is an affordable health watch to track activities

But if the $450 price tag is a bit steep for you, they've recently announced a more affordable line of health watches called Activite Pop.

The Moto 360 is one of the very few goodlooking smartwatches in the market today. It's my choice of smartwatch when it comes to the looks department but I hope it allows more customization. Good thing there's the SteelConnect M adapter that brings a different twist to the smartwatch. With the adapter, you can now change the strap to give it a new look.
