AutoWear is a Tasker plug-in for your Android Wear device

We’ve talked about all the wonderful things Tasker is able to do with your Android device here, here, and here – of course, with some investment of your time. The learning curve for Tasker is admittedly steep, but if you learn it, you can basically make your smartphone do anything (well, almost anything).

LG Watch Urbane gets LTE, NFC, and battery variant

It isn't uncommon for companies to try and squeeze all they can from a winning product, but LG might again be going overboard just a wee bit. Just a week after it unveiled the classy LG Watch Urbane, which has still to make a public appearance at MWC 2015, it is announcing a new variant that might make you think twice about reaching for that new smartwatch. As the name suggests, the LG Watch Urbane LTE adds 4G connectivity, but it is also adding a lot more than that.

Photographer 3D prints VR headset for the OnePlus One

With Samsung jumping on the virtual reality (VR) niche with the Gear VR and Galaxy Note 4 combo, and with LG following close behind teaming up with Google Cardboard plus the LG G3 – not to mention the revival of the View-Master in modern VR style – it will not surprise us if the smaller manufacturers make efforts to jump on this market as well.

App now allows Android Wear to play with iOS, sort of

One of the very real issues that any owner of an Android Wear device – that is, mostly Android-powered smartwatches to you who have been living under a rock – is the fact that their smartwatch is rendered practically useless if and when they decide to jump from an Android smartphone or tablet to another platform. In our case, the problem is jumping to iOS. Android Wear doesn’t play with iOS devices, until now, that is.

Android Wear 5.0.2 ready for download on your smartwatch

Before you thinking of getting a new smartwatch yet again, update your wearable to Android Wear 5.0.2 first. Google has recently rolled out the Android Wear 5.0.2 software update but only for some Android Wear devices like the LG G Watch R, Motorola Moto 360, and Samsung Gear Live.

PaperWear brings content to your smartwatch

Year 2015 could be the year of wearables. There are a lot of smartwatch models running Android Wear that are being introduced left and right even before Apple releases the Mac fans' highly anticipated Apple Watch.
