Google is all set to launch Android Wear 2.0 and two new Smartwatches at CES 2017

Google are all set to announce two new Smartwatches at the upcoming CES 2017 next month in Las Vegas. Details of which have been kept a hush hush but what we do know for a fact is that both the devices would be operating on the all new Android Wear 2.0 which promises to add a bunch of new exciting features. The most prominent additions to Android Wear 2.0 is the support for standalone apps which don’t require your smartphone, support for Android Pay and support for Google’s voice-activated Assistant that can be currently found in the Pixel devices. The update is also scheduled to arrive on a bunch of newer devices but for those of you who have older devices like the original Moto 360  or the ASUS ZenWatch are (unfortunately) not supported due to their hardware limitations most noticeable being the absence of NFC which is required for Android Pay to work. The devices that are scheduled to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update include the following: Moto 360 Gen 2 Moto 360 Sport LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE LG Watch Urbane LG G Watch R Polar M600 Casio Smart Outdoor Watch Nixon Mission Tag Heuer Connected Fossil Q Wander Fossil Q Marshal Fossil Q Founder Michael Kors Access Bradshaw Smartwatch Michael Kors Access Dylan Smartwatch Huawei Watch Huawei Watch Ladies Asus ZenWatch 2 Asus ZenWatch 3 Even though we were  left a bit saddened by the fact that the Moto 360 would not be getting the update since that was our very first Android Wear device, it does give us an added incentive to treat ourself to any of the aforementioned or maybe even one of the new upcoming Google devices this holiday season. Will keep you guys posted on this in the weeks to...

Introducing BLOCKS – The world’s first modular smartwatch

Introducing BLOCKS – The world’s first modular smartwatch

Not too long ago we were all buzzing about modular smartphones which could very well be the future of most of our hand held devices. When we talk about modular devices, Google’s Project Ara and LG’s latest flagship phone of 2016, the LG G5, would be among the first names that come to mind. If these aren’t enough to make a few jaws drop, we’ve got another exciting entrant in the modular devices family – BLOCKS which is the world’s first modular smartwatch. What’s most exciting about these modular devices is the option to customize them as per your own needs. Same goes for the smartwatch, which offers a wide variety of options for you to choose from. The modules include: Extra Battery Heart Rate GPS Adventure (Module has a 3-in-1 sensor which combines digital humidity, pressure and temperature sensors in one). Flashlight Programmable button   Four of the aforementioned modules come with the watch and the good thing is you get to choose all four of them. The BLOCKS smartwatch is expected to release in October this year and will be retailing for $330 with $11 in shipping costs if you’re in the US and $15 for the rest of the world (Pre-orders have already started). Additional modules can also be purchased separately which will cost you an extra $35 per piece. We really like the idea of customizing your watch according to your own needs and even though Motorola offer a similar option with the 2ndgeneration Moto 360, BLOCKS offers something uniquely different. If you’re on the lookout to get a new smartwatch running on Android Wear anytime soon, then you probably should wait a few more months. The BLOCKS smartwatch features a 1.39” full circular 400 x 400 Gorilla Glass AMOLED Round Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8009w processor, 512MB RAM, a 300 mAh battery, 4GB of storage, a stainless steel casing, microphone, WIFI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) and runs on the latest version of Android (Wear) Marshmallow. The watch is also fully compatible with iOS devices which will surely make Apple users quite happy. Even though the market for smartwatches hasn’t quite gone mainstream as anticipated, the modular technology might just be able to change this norm and in doing so, re-define the future of how smartwatches can be utilized. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below. Cheers! BLOCKS Smarwatch Tech Specs at a Glance 1.39″ AMOLED 400×400 Display 300mAh battery Stainless Steel casing Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8009w processor 512MB RAM 4GB Storage Microphone WIFI 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) G Sens + Gyro E-Compass Android Marshmallow Source:...
