Google announces which Android Wear watches will get Oreo update, and which already have it

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

As the name implies, Android Wear is simply a variation of Android specifically tailored to smartwatches. This year's Wear 2.0 update ran on top of Android 7.0 Nougat, and while some components can be updated through the Play Store, the underlying system can only be updated through normal OTAs.

Google released the Wear version of Android 8.0 Oreo a few days ago, and the update started to roll out to the LG Watch Sport and other models.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Wear24 smartwatch is just $79.99 ($270 off) on Woot

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Not many people are interested in paying $349.99 for a smartwatch, which is probably why Verizon's Wear24 didn't do too hotly prior to its discontinuation. However, we've been seeing some incredible deals since then. Matching the lowest price we've seen thus far, Woot is offering new Wear 24s for just $74.99 (plus $5 for shipping) a pop.

The Wear24 features a 1.39" 480p OLED, a Snapdragon 2100, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a beefy 450mAh battery.

Oreo will be rolling out to Android Wear starting today

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Android Wear 2.0, deep down inside, is based on Nougat 7.0. A bit over a month ago the platform saw news of a coming update to Oreo in the form of a beta program, originally only available for the LG Watch Sport. We presume that beta is now over, because Android Oreo is rolling out to Wear devices starting today.

This news comes according to a post made on Google+ by Hoi Lam, Wearables Developer Advocate at Google, in the Android Wear Developers community.

Monday, November 27th, 2017

LG and Google's Watch Style isn't the most feature-filled smartwatch on the market by a long shot, but if you're just looking for a simple device to read notifications from and check things like the weather, it's a good choice. And since it's just $99.99 from B&H now, the issue with its $249.99 MSRP has been resolved.

The Watch Style features a 1.2" 360p P-OLED display, a Snapdragon Wear 2100, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 240mAh battery.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Wear24 smartwatch is a staggeringly low $79.99 ($270 off) on eBay

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Verizon's Wear24 Android Wear smartwatch originally retailed for $349.99, which was likely a factor in its discontinuation after just four months on the market. We completely forgot it existed until a week ago, when we spotted it on eBay for $129.99 a pop, which we thought was a pretty good deal. Now the Wear24 has fallen to an incredibly low $79.99, which is incredible given the specs behind it.

[Deal Alert] Get 20% off Ticwatch E and S Android Wear watches, 40% off Assistant-enabled TicHome Mini speaker

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Sales, sales, sales everywhere. For 1 to 2 weeks every year, the entire world becomes a huge bargain bin where some sales are a little more enticing than the others. I think this one falls in the former category: Mobvoi is having some discounts on its Android Wear smartwatches and TicHome Mini speakers.

First, the TicHome Mini is a small portable Bluetooth and streaming speaker with Google Assistant built-in. Scott has been using it for a few weeks (his review is coming soon), but his impressions are that the design and build are good, the sound is great for its size, and the portability adds to its usefulness.
