Moto 360 2015 Leaked – Has a Full Cirlcular Watch Face and New Strap Design

The Moto 360 was considered one of the best smart watches of 2014 running Google’s own Android Wear OS. Truth be told, it had its limitations but for a first generation Android smart watch, it was quite impressive. The circular face of the smart watch coupled with it leather or steel straps made it very beautiful and stylish time piece. Now rumors for the 2nd generation Moto 360 have already started to take shape. One such leak has hit the digital realm, of a fully rounded smart watch face, meaning no more gap at the bottom. This also means that the resolution has been bumped from 320×290 from to 360×360. The other thing which the leaked image above shows, is a whole new band with steel clasps. They seem to slide right in the watch face. If this turns out to be true, then alot of people who damaged their devices while trying to change straps are  going to be really happy. This year seems to be really promising for android smart watches, with companies already showing off their new watches. Huawei amazed everyone with their first smart watch the Huawei Watch and LG came up with the LG G Watch Urbane. This means Motorola has to really up its game if it wants its smart watch to rule the roost once again. Source:...

Huawei’s launches its first smart watch at MWC called Huawei Watch

Huawei’s launches its first smart watch at MWC called Huawei Watch

Huawei is a company which is slowly creeping up on the competition with its affordable and premium smart phones.  Now, they have taken a bold step and ventured into the smart watch territory. Huawei at MWC 2015 launched their first smart watch, the Huawei Watch. The watch as you can see in the picture above looks absolutely stunning and could over throw last year’s king the Moto 360, in terms of looks as well as power. Huawei have made this time piece with the idea of it lasting decades, with the body being made of cold-forged stainless steel and a sapphire crystal lens. The watch will come in three colors, gold silver and black, with a number of straps including leather and steel variants. The display on this smart watch is a whole new ball game with a fully circular 1.4 inch AMOLED display having a resolution of 400×400. This makes it the screen to beat in a smart watch category so far. The display to body ratio is smaller than the Moto 360, meaning looks more like a traditional time piece. The heart of the watch is a Qualcomm APQ8026 1.2GHz processor, with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage. The RAM and the memory is in par with the industry average, so nothing new there. The smart watch comes with a number of sensors including Gyroscope + Accelerometer, PPG and Barometer for tracking heart rate, steps etc. On the charging front the Huawei Watch unlike the Moto 360 charges with a cradle and a wire and not via Qi charging. The battery on the smart watch is 300mAh, which could be enough to last a full day. The sad news though is if you want this bad boy then, you have to wait quite a bit, as Huawei have coined the availability to be somewhere in the middle of the year. So, what do you think of Huawei’s first attempt at a smart watch. Will you be buying it? Let us know in our comments section...

Samsung Gear S – The First Curved Standalone Sim Enabled Smart watch

Samsung at the IFA 2014 in Berlin was on quite a role, unveiling two smart phones (Galaxy Note 4 and  Note Edge), a Virtual Reality headset and a smart watch. The smart watch in particular is what we going to talk about today.  The new member of the Gear family is called the Gear S.

It does not need to be paired with a smart phone via Bluetooth or WiFi, though you have the option to do that too. The Gear S is a curved smart watch, which fits comfortably on your wrist. The display on the watch is a 2 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 360×480 pixels (300PPI). The front face of the watch houses a home button, similar to those found in other Gear watches. The OS running the Gear S is Samsung’s very own Tizen software, which has been improved quite a bit compared to its predecessors. Now as this particular smart watch has a sim card, you will surely be getting many texts, so the watch has its very own little keyboard, which you can use to reply back, Autocorrect really helps when typing. If, you find it hard to type on such a small screen then no worries, you can always use the Speech-to-text feature to reply back to your text messages. Now using the device is not all that hard either, when you swipe left from the clock face screen, a notification center appears where all the notifications of your various apps can be found. Now, if you swipe to the right a home screen comes up where it shows your recently used apps. Finally when you swipe up your app drawer open us, where you can use the numerous apps available at your disposal to really bring out the full potential of the smart watch. On the hard ware front, it has the industry par 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. At the heart of the device lies a 1 GHz Dual-core processor and is powered by a 300mAh battery which lasts for 2 days on a single charge. The smart watch also comes with your usual connectivity options which include WiFi 802.11n, GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB 2.0. The watch is also IP67 certified making it resistant to mostly all weather conditions.  The Gear S also comes with a ton of sensors, an Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Heart Rate, Ambient Light, UV and Barometer.
