Wear OS app v2.14 will add a shortcut to block app notifications [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

While you can run apps on Wear OS, the main reason for it to exist is to serve notifications. But for as much as notifications are useful, too many can be counterproductive. If you're finding that one or more of your apps is getting too noisy, but you're not quite ready to shut down notifications altogether, one good solution is to block those notifications from reaching your watch. Soon, you'll be able to access the settings screen to configure blocked apps by using a launcher shortcut.

Facer introduces watch face games to help you kill time (and your smartwatch’s battery life)

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

A day or two of uptime for a smartwatch is accepted as the norm these days — a sad state of affairs, indeed. So when a nifty feature is introduced, excitement is immediately doused with the reality that it almost certainly means conceding some already-scanty battery life. Facer recently announced watch face games for Wear OS and Tizen smartwatches, and they seem like a clever take on uber-casual gaming worth your while if you're fine keeping that charger nearby.

TicWatch Pro now available – offers 5-30 days battery life, Wear OS, ‘Layered Display’ technology

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

It's been a while since there's been any excitement surrounding Wear OS, the artist formally known as Android Wear, with no notable recent hardware releases outside of expensive fashion products. The OS itself is feeling dated and has arguably never really been fit for purpose; the platform really needs some attention from Google if it's to escape a slow, boring death.

Peering through all the doom and gloom, however, Google-backed Mobvoi is launching a follow up to its well-received, affordable S and E smartwatches.

Facer update brings interactive watch faces to Wear OS

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

Don’t you wish your favorite Wear OS watch face could do more? Thanks to a huge new Facer update, it can!

Facer 4.6.0 adds support for interactive watch faces for the first time, giving users the ability to launch apps, play mini-games, trigger fun animations, and lots more right from their wrist.

One of the best things about Wear OS, which Apple Watch still hasn’t matched, is its support for third-party faces.

Update Notes for YouTube, YouTube Music, Gmail, Wear OS, Google Assistant, and Creator Studio (Mar 24, 2018)

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Skagen Falster review: A very sleek Wear OS watch let down by terrible hardware decisions

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

Over the last year, we've seen a tangible shift in Android Wear's — now Wear OS — direction. Previously geared toward the demanding techie crowd that was tough to win over, Google's smartwatch platform found a sort of reprieve in more niche markets. We've seen Wear watches made for extreme sports, outdoors, running, and a slew of fashion-forward models from recognized brands like Michael Kors, Diesel, GUESS, Fossil, Kate Spade, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.

Google improves Play Music experience on Wear OS, adds shuffle functionality

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Google rebranded Android Wear as Wear OS last week, but the change didn't bring any new features with it. The reason behind the rebranding wasn't stated explicitly, but it may be that Google wants to make the wearable operating system seem more platform agnostic — one in every three Android Wear watch owners uses an iPhone, so dropping the 'Android' from the name of the platform might help even more people realize that Wear works with iOS devices, too.

Hublot’s $5,200 Wear OS watch to be worn by 2018 FIFA World Cup referees, limited to 2,018 pieces

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Hublot has become the latest watchmaker to delve into the realm of Andr- I mean, Wear OS watches. Its new watch, dubbed 'Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia' (seriously) will be worn by referees for the --- you guessed it --- 2018 FIFA World Cup, and it'll retail for 5,000 Swiss francs (~$5,200 US). It'll be limited to 2,018 pieces.

That's some pretty majestic music.

As you'd expect from a $5,200 smartwatch, the Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia (henceforth referred to as 'BBR2018FWCR') is pretty well-equipped.
