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.

Microsoft has Android Wear keyboard that draws on smartwatch

While smartwatches are definitely catching on, particularly for the early adapters of technology, the idea of having keyboards on the watchfaces are still pretty much a novelty.

Android-powered Halo smartwatch is both analog and digital

Smartwatch era? I can’t say we’re already in that period but smartwatches are being introduced left and right ever since Apple announced its own Watch wearable device. However, the Cupertino giant is not the first to officially bring a smartwatch in the market. The likes of Samsung and Kickstarter-funded Pebble went ahead with the smartwatch idea and turned out to be popular. Although let’s admit it, Apple’s iPod Nano worn as a watch was the inspiration. Motorola and LG have joined the bandwagon the past months while HTC is still working on a model. Other manufacturers are expected to follow suit but this one from Longshine is a bit different.
