The first-gen Moto 360 may soon have a follow up since we’ve been seeing a lot of leaked photos lately. The Motorola smartwatch was also recently made available in Moto Maker so anyone can customize his own Moto 360 while Google even slashed off a hundred bucks from its original price.

Huawei Smartwatch to arrive middle of the year

Huawei has already introduced its entry to the smartwatch arena at the Mobile World Congress early last month. We were able to get our hands on the company’s first Android Wear watch and we were impressed that it doesn’t look too geeky. It actually looks like any ordinary round watch.

Sony Lifelog partners with IFTTT for new recipes for wearables

Wearables are a great way of tracking your daily activities without having to log it in a notebook, old-school style. But when you add even more "recipes" to the pot, then it will be even easier to take digital note of your fitness routines, how much calories you've consumed, how many hours you've slept, etc, particularly if you need these things for health reasons.

ASUS to launch fitness-centric, 10-day battery life VivoWatch

ASUS' current wearable, the ZenWatch had a pretty great two-day battery life, for a device on the Android Wear platform. It looks like they're trying to top that with a new smartwatch that they're launching, and this time, it's not just 2 days or even 5 days, but it claims it can run on 10 days without recharging it. Will the VivoWatch live up to its promise of being a fitness-centric smartwatch?

Google Store slashes price of Moto 360

The Moto 360 is one of the smartwatch models I've been personally eyeing but there are too many choices out there that it's hard to decide. But this could be The One now for me as Google Store slashed off the Moto 360's price from $250 down to $165. That's a huge discount there but Google wasn't the only one who did lower the price of the Android Wear smartwatch. Best Buy and Amazon also cut off $100 from any variant of the Moto 360--resulting to more people able buying the Moto 360 in any material or color they want.

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.

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.
