The LG G Watch launches this summer and we still know very little about the Android-powered smartwatch. LG has launched a new promotional website to showcase the G Watch that revealed some interesting information about the Android Wear device.
Google Glass users who pair their wearable tech to an iPhone will soon gain the ability to check their text messages through Glass. An update to Glass will make it possible to read SMS notifications once paired to an iPhone. However, replies will not be available because of limitations of iOS. Another upcoming change is the introduction of a new calendar app that will show an agenda on the left side of the screen. Both changes will be available in MyGlass at some point this week.
Though Google normally updates its Glass software every month, the wearable computer went several weeks without new software until Google today announced plans to release an upgrade later this week. And while users wait on that update, anyone in the U.S. interested in Glass can purchase one today.
Trademark filings by Samsung make whispers of a smartwatch that doesn't need to connect to a phone seem more plausible, and reveal what may be the name of Samsung's Android Wear wristwatch.
We don't know much about the LG G Watch other than the fact that it will be one of the first devices to run Google's wearable-friendly version of Android, Android Wear. We've seen some photos of the smartwatch, but for the first time, we've seen some details about when it will be available.
There are plenty of products on the market that allow owners to control their lighting using a smartphone. Likewise, there are plenty that control music playback through a smartphone. However, it's not every day that you see a product that does both.
Sony has revealed that it will not change its smartwatch strategy in light of the recent announcement of Android Wear, Google's wearable-specific version of Android. Instead, Sony will continue use its own Smartwatch platform that is also built on Android but hasn't caught fire in the consumer market.
LG must not have liked all the attention that Motorola got during last week's launch of the Moto 360 because they just released another photo of the G Watch to garner some more attention.
Motorola and LG are the first two companies to reveal their plans to debut a smartwatch running Google's Android Wear platform announced today. The two companies are also taking very different approaches.
Google today unveiled Android Wear, a platform designed to bring Android and Google Now to wearable technology like smartwatches and other use cases that will allow the device to act as a controller for other connected devices.
