Tag Heuer’s smartwatch named as the Carrera Wearable 01

We learned about Tag Heuer's upcoming entrance into the smartwatch market. We're expecting it would be big and obviously luxurious and that the company would be partnering with Google and Intel and that it will begin selling the product October or November this year for about $1,400. The official name of the smartwatch wasn't disclosed but Tag Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver mentioned to Wearable in an interview that it would be the Tag Heuer Carrera Wearable 01.

ASUS intros new ZenWatch 2 at Computex

Over at the Computex tech event in Taiwan, ASUS showed off the new ZenWatch 2. It's obviously a follow up to last year's ZenWatch. What's good about the 2015 ZenWatch is that it will be available in two width sizes: 37mm and 41mm. The 37mm features an 18mm strap while the 41mm will have a 22mm band. The ZenWatch 2 versions boast the same AMOLED dipslays, Gorilla Glass 3, magnetic charging cables, as well as, IP67 dust and water resistance.

Google shows of Project Jacquard at developer conference

We somehow knew what to expect at the I/O 2015 but Google still blew our minds with the Project Jacquard. The ATAP team showed off a new fabric technology that can track touch. The aim of the Project Jacquard is to produce a conductive fabric that can sense, control, and react to touch. Conductive threads are nothing new but Google plans to go further with the Project Jacquard by doing a more extensive research and development plus partnership with names that matter in the fashion industry.

Project Soli applies radar tech to interfacing with wearables

Here’s the problem – devices are getting smaller and smaller that it’s getting more difficult by the generation to design ways of interacting or interfacing with them that are natural and logical, not to mention simple enough to create. Here is where Project Soli comes in, another one of the cool things coming out of this year’s Google I/O. Project Soli integrates radar technology with the motive of easier interaction with small wearable devices.

Android Wear hits 4000 apps

Google has another reason to celebrate and gather all Android fans at the Google I/O 2015 conference. Why, there are now 4,000 Android Wear apps ready for download from the Google Play Store. This is good news for everyone who owns an Android Wear-powered smartwatch because it means there are more apps to use and there are more ways for customization even if it's only a small screen.

Spotify now available as an app for Android Wear

When smartwatches and wearables came on the scene, listening to music on your mobile devices became even easier. Not that you'd listen to music directly from something on your wrist, mind you. But controlling the music without touching your smartphone saves you a few minutes and several movements as well. One of the most popular (yet controversial) music streaming services will be arriving soon to your wearables. Welcome Spotify to the (apparently 4,000-app strong) world of Android Wear.

Wear Mini Launcher lets you manage apps in your smartwatch

Unlike with smartphones where you can still survive without an app launcher, Android Wear smartwatches aren't that great yet when it comes to managing and launching apps. You'd have to rely on apps like Wear Mini Launcher in order to quickly find the tools you need at that moment when you need it. Aside from getting to the apps, you also get to customize your settings and options so that it's easier for you to manage your smartwatch, even without opening your smartphone.

ReVault is world’s first smartwatch with wireless storage

Smartwatches certainly have potential to have more functions than just display notifications, allow WiFi calling, and act as a health and fitness tracker. A smartwatch is such a small device but it can be powerful and highly functional and that's what the team behind the ReVault is aiming: introduce a smartwatch with wearable wireless storage.

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.
