HTC is one of the only major mobile brands that has not released a wearable yet, despite a smartwatch from the company oft mooted. Indeed, it is widely known that HTC was actually on the brink of launching its first smartwatch two years ago but cancelled the product as the company did not see huge growth in wearables. However, apparently now is the right time to enter the market as HTC is rumored to be launching the One Watch.
Motorola announced the Moto 360 Sport alongside the 2015 edition of the regular Moto 360, but while the latter has been available for some time, consumers are still unable to get the 360 Sport. That is about to change through December and January as Motorola confirmed the price and launch date for the smartwatch.
We like the idea of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE is a nice looking smartwatch and it is one of those rare Android Wear products, one that comes with a unique standout feature. It is the first to come with LTE connectivity to allow it to take calls directly from the device without a need for smartphone connection.
We like the Huawei Watch, the company's first smartwatch, mainly because of its slick looks (in terms of features, it is basically the same as other Android Wear products). The Huawei Watch is good-looking in all guises, but it is the Rose Gold variant that catches the most attention, which sports a 22k gold timepiece and a choice of straps, including high end leather.
Apple has launched a new accessory for its Apple Watch, a dock that lets you wirelessly charge the wearable by placing it magnetically on the dock. Apple has made the accessory available from today via its online store and should be making its way to bricks and mortar Apple locations in due course (November 20).
The Apple Watch is a solid piece of kit, and it has become comfortably the biggest selling smartwatch on the market. However, it is probably not the seismic shift in the market that we expected it to be and in terms of some areas (health and fitness) there are more robust wearable options. Apple is definitely interested in the health sector though and Tim Cook says the company is working on an FDA approved product that is not a smartwatch.
Swiss based luxury watch maker TAG Heuer announced earlier this year that it would enter the wearable market with its first ever smartwatch. Not much else was revealed by the company, although we knew this was going to be an expensive entry in the market. That?s entirely true as the TAG Heuer Connected was unveiled today as the first truly luxurious smartwatch on the Android Wear platform.
Pebble, one of the first wearable brands, expanded into the round faced smartwatch with the announcement of the Pebble Round back in September. If you have been waiting for the chance to buy the device then your wait will soon be over as Pebble has announced that the Round will be making its debut on November 8 in the United States.
We like the Huawei Watch, it is one of the best Android Wear smartwatches on the market, not to mention one of the very best looking wearables available. Consumers in the United Kingdom can now get a taste of the Huawei Watch as the device is rolling out in the nation right now.
One of the best things about the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL flagships announced earlier this month was the Continuum software that allows them to be hooked up to a screen and used as a fully functioning PC. The handsets themselves are excellent, but this feature was unique and difference maker, although it came with one significant caveat.
