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. That's a huge discount there but Google wasn't the only one who did lower the price of the Android Wear smartwatch. 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.

More colorful straps, watch faces for Android Wear added

By now, you've probably decided that you like Android Wear, that you want a wearable, and that you're finally getting a smartwatch. There are several models from different manufacturers already you might have a hard time choosing only one. Personally, I like the Huawei watch and the customizable Moto 360 and maybe in future, that Tag Heuer smartwatch. The smartwatch game appeals to me because there's so much you can do with such a small device and wear it around your wrist.

Samsung to reportedly release their first round-faced smartwatch

Round-faced smartwatches used to be a big deal, if only because there were only very few in the market. Back then it was just the LG G Watch R and the Moto 360 competing in the Android Wear market. But now there are other players like Huawei and LG has released other models as well, trying to get a piece of the pie and attracting those who would like a wearable that looked like a normal watch but had the functionality of a gadget.

Charge your Pebble smartwatch on the go with NomadKey

If your original Pebble smartwatch is a hotbed of activity, meaning you get notifications every few seconds, or you constantly use it to monitor your workouts and activities, then chances are, you would need to constantly charge your wearable device. But since it has quite a unique charger, as compared to the micro USBs of most smartphones or gadgets, that just means additional baggage for you. But a new portable charger called NomadKey for Pebble is tiny, convenient and just perfect for your quick charging needs.

Olio brings its first smartwatch to the wearable market

While most of the current smartwatches in the market are trying to outdo each other when it comes to features and looks, almost turning it into a really tiny smartphone, one company believes that the simpler and the prettier, the better. And it is their first product ever, so it's a pretty bold move going up against more established OEMs. But Olio is confident that they'll find a niche amongst those who prefer their notifications few and their smartwatches stylish.
