Nexus Player and Moto 360 get price discount from Google Store, Amazon

Google has just listed the Nexus Player on sale with a $20 discount only months after its official launch last year. From the original retail price of $99.99, the Nexus Player is now $79.99. The Android-powered set-top box's price drop is an indication that perhaps the Nexus Player isn't really selling and flying off the shelves or Google could be planning for a new version already.

Smartwatches certainly have potential to have more functions than just display notifications, allow WiFi calling, and act as a health and fitness tracker.

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.

LG gives official statement on G Watch R ‘no wifi’ issue

It has been kind of a roller coaster ride, a soap opera if you will, regarding the “no wifi” issue on the LG G Watch R smartwatch.

Those who regularly use Google Maps and actually have a smartwatch will notice a Google Maps app on your Android Wear device, or at least, those smartwatches that run the latest Android Wear software update.
