Android Wear 2.0 launched earlier this month on LG’s duo of new watches — the LG Watch Sport and Style. Over the coming weeks, though, it will be rolling out to the majority of other, older Android Wear devices. Now, Fossil is giving us a time frame for that rollout on its devices…

Android Wear 2.0 rolling out ‘over the coming weeks,’ these are the watches that will get it

Pricing for LG’s upcoming Watch Style said to start at $249

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I didn’t expect LG/Google’s upcoming Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches to be all that affordable. Personally, I expected LG to follow Motorola’s example with a starting price of at least $299. However, according to Android Police, the LG Watch Style may, in fact, be priced at just $249, […]

Opinion: Google’s ‘Magic Minute’ marketing campaign simply highlights that Android Wear is practically useless

I’ve talked about this time and time again, but it seems today Google is giving me another opportunity: smartwatches just aren’t compelling. I haven’t always been this skeptical (many will know that I was on the “wearables are the next big thing” bandwagon for quite some time), but they’ve become little more than a way […]
