Remember MICA? The wildest smartwatch this side of the Moto 360, developed by Intel, and full of mystery? Turns out, it's a real product, and it'll be available to people just like yourself real soon. The My Intelligent Communication Accessory was designed by a company called Opening Ceremony, and Intel's engineering... Read more...
We reported this past spring about a Microsoft patent that dropped a major hint about the company's smartwatch plans, and mere weeks later, we learned that we could have been seeing the device launch in the summer. Well, as we're now in the midst of pumpkin season, and no Microsoft smartwatch has showed its face (no... Read more...
Apple's aptly-named 'Watch' isn't slated for release until early 2015, but it'd be a horrible thing if the actual development kit wasn't released well before then. After all, if the Watch launches with a small collection of apps, hype could potentially die down to the level of non-existence. Well, during a briefing... Read more...
Let's be honest here -- it's a relatively safe bet that Windows 95 was never on your radar when you thought about purchasing a smartwatch, which assumes you're even interested in the emerging wearable category to begin with. Android Wear, iOS, and Tizen? All viable candidates (if not now, then soon), and you might... Read more...
Intel-owned Basis has just unveiled a brand-new smartwatch, and while I'd understand it if you didn't get too excited based on that fact alone, this model does seem to have what it takes to stand out of the crowd. Called Peak, this high-quality smartwatch features a Gorilla Glass touchscreen face and an anodized aluminum body that comes in... Read more...
Some have claimed that the desktop is dead, and admittedly, it's not hard to understand why. Over the course of just a handful of years, mobile has become more important and in-our-face than ever. Not only do we have smartphones in our pockets, we have notebooks at home, and perhaps even a tablet. Soon, we might even have a smartwatch on our... Read more...
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you paid several hundred dollars for your smartwatch, you may have grossly overpaid for the right to be an early adopter. According to market research firm Gartner, Android-based smartwatches will sell for an average of $30 in 2015 as Chinese OEMs and ODMs capture the... Read more...
We've been talking a lot about smartwatches lately - so much so, that I wouldn't blame you if you forgot that other wearables could actually exist. To the rescue for a refresher on that is MOTA, a company that has just announced its first "SmartRing", and based on its name alone, you can probably already tell what... Read more...
With a few companies introducing smartwatch products at IFA in Berlin, Intel's taking a slightly different approach. The chip-maker's wearable debut in Berlin is far different than those being issued by LG, Samsung, and Motorola, focusing on fashion instead of nuts-and-bolts. It's called MICA, which is short for "My... Read more...
Since the announcement of the Android Wear platform this past June, Google has said very little about what's in store for the future. As it stands today, we're anticipating the launch of three smartwatches based on the platform, including LG's G Watch, Samsung's Gear Live, and of course, the much-touted Moto 360. All...

Although IFA doesn't kick off until next week, a few companies are spilling the beans on what's ahead... ahead of schedule. Samsung's joining that crowd, this week introducing the newest smartwatch in its arsenal: the Gear S. While the display isn't round, it is gently curved to fit flush against your wrist, and...

Rather than leave its hardware partners floundering in wearable waters to fend for themselves, Google threw them a lifeline in the form of Android Wear, a viable platform for the smartwatch movement that phone makers seem so eager to chase. It's still early in the game, but we're seeing some interesting smartwatches... Read more...
It used to be that we'd rely on Twitter user @evleaks (real name Evan Blass) to inevitably post press shots of unannounced or otherwise unreleased products, along with with specs and other details ahead of schedule. But with online retailers jumping the gun these days, we can see why Blass went into retirement. Even... Read more...
The first time we heard about Apple possibly launching a smartwatch was nearly two years ago. Ever since then, there's been a fairly steady stream of rumors and speculation, but nary a peep from Apple. So, what gives? Well, if the latest chatter holds any merit, Apple could finally unveil a smartwatch during its... Read more...
