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.

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.

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.

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.

Impression PI is the fashionable VR headset

It was bound to happen. With the boom on VR-slash-AR (virtual/augmented reality) headsets still going on, somebody was bound to think, “Well, let’s make one that looks good on you.” This is the Impression PI project, up on Kickstarter and has taken in more than twice its funding target already. The project has made sure it’s less bulky than other VR headsets out there, so it has that going for them. Let’s take a look.

Jawbone UP3 shipping later this month, but with limited water-resistance

Months after they announced their newest product, Jawbone has finally released the schedule on when the pre-orders will start shipping the UP3. The wearable device was expected to hit the market late last year after they unveiled it in November, but problems in production have caused a delay as well as a major change in the water-resistance level of the UP3. But if you're okay with that change, then you'll be receiving your device starting end of April until mid-May.
