You can speak to Assistant in Korean on your phone and Android Wear watch

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

At I/O this year, Google promised support for the Korean language would be coming by the end of the year to Assistant. Then at the October Pixel event a couple of weeks ago, Google also stated that Actions on Google (third-party Assistant integrations from different services) now support Korean. Between then and now, it appears that support for the Korean language has gone live on Assistant.

Google's help pages now say that you can talk to Assistant in Korean on your phone, your Wear watch (which makes sense since it's connected to your phone), and that developers can add it in their Actions on Google apps.

[Deal Alert] Misfit’s Vapor Android Wear smartwatch appears on Amazon for only $151 ($48 off)

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

According to a new Amazon listing, it looks like Misfit's Vapor Android Wear smartwatch might actually exist soon. Even better, you can buy one now over at Amazon in both Black and Gold/Pink for just a bit over $151. It's "temporarily out of stock," but you can place an order.

The Vapor is supposed to cost $200 when it launches later this October, so we aren't sure if this is a mistake with the listing or an actual reduction in price.

[Deal Alert] ZTE Quartz has dropped to $96 ($96 off) at T-Mobile

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

ZTE announced its 'Quartz' smartwatch back in April, and it was the company's first Android Wear watch. It had LTE capabilities and was priced pretty competitively, but was exclusive to T-Mobile. That exclusivity hasn't changed, but the price has - it's now half off.

As far as technical specifications, the ZTE Quartz has the same Snapdragon 2100 CPU and 4GB of storage that most Android Wear watches have. It also has a 500mAh battery, a 1.4" full circle OLED display with Gorilla Glass 3, and GPS connectivity.

New Android Wear 2.0 features can now be delivered through the Play Store, no OTA required

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Android Wear is entering a potentially critical time. Wear 2.0 hasn't been received nearly as well as might have been expected, with many observers understandably worrying for its future. Watches were conspicuously absent from Google's big hardware event last week, and the Google Store site refresh has removed all non-Google products, including LG's recently released Android Wear watches.

Wear fans could use some more good news to add to the recent announcement of the Oreo beta program for the LG Watch Sport, and it looks as though we have exactly that.

Nixon Mission now comes with stainless steel band in three colors for an extra $25/£50/€21

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

For such a small platform, there are a surprising number of different Android Wear watches on the market. Traditionally non-techy brands like Michael Kors, Diesel, and Tag Heuer all sell smartwatches powered by Google's wearable OS. Nixon is one of those brands, and now offers its Mission watch with stainless steel bands.

The Mission with its plain-jane silicone band was already a pretty handsome watch, but its chiseled face didn't match the rather dainty strap.

[Update: Googler confirms Google Store now only stocks in-house hardware] Android Wear section vanishes from Google Store, with LG Watch Sport and Style now showing as “no longer available”

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Android Wear isn't an especially popular platform these days, but plenty of people still use it - enough for Google to have released two new smartwatches, the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style, earlier this year.

Android Wear section vanishes from Google Store, with LG Watch Sport and Style now showing as “no longer available”

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Android Wear isn't an especially popular platform these days, but plenty of people still use it - enough for Google to have released two new smartwatches, the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style, earlier this year. But just eight months after their release, the Android Wear page has disappeared from the Google Store's home page. And more interestingly, both the Watch Sport and Watch Style are now marked as "no longer available."

A lot of stuff was introduced today: the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the Pixelbook, Home Max, Home Mini, Google Buds, Google Clips, and the new Daydream, and the Google Store got a bit of a redesign to freshen things up.

Android Wear beta program opens up for Oreo 8.0, only available for LG Watch Sport

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Now that Android 8.0 Oreo is out of beta and making its way onto devices in earnest, the Wear team is taking a turn with its own preliminary firmware update. Starting today, Google's Beta Program page is now distributing an early version of the next release of Android Wear. However, if you were looking forward to a lot of new features, you might be disappointed to hear that this is being referred to as a "technical upgrade to API 26" – mostly an update to the underlying infrastructure.

iHeartRadio releases standalone app for Android Wear 2.0 [APK Download]

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Internet radio app iHeartRadio is pretty popular with Android users and with good reason. It's built up an impressive feature set to go along with its attractive interface and is frequently updated with useful additions, such as Google Home support earlier in the year. The latest version brings with it a dedicated Android Wear 2.0 app, and you don't need your phone for it to work.

As long as you have an internet connection on your Wear watch you can now use it to listen to live radio and artist stations, perfect for when you head out for a run without your phone, for example.

Verizon discontinues the Wear24 smartwatch after just 4 months

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Verizon announced its very own Android Wear smartwatch earlier this year, powered by its LTE network. It started selling the Wear24 in May for $300 on contract and $350 without one. That seemed like an interesting proposition when consumers have shown little interest even in cheap smartwatches. Verizon didn't let this product languish too long, though. We've confirmed with the carrier that Wear24 is dead.

Verizon didn't actually announce the smartwatch was going away.
