Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

A teaser for the Ticwatch E2 is now live on Mobvoi’s website. The company's Ticwatch line has proven popular in the wearable marketplace and it just recently launched the Ticwatch Pro, which we reviewed. The E and S models were first released in July 2017 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. 

While details are scarce, or actually nonexistent, the teaser page declares that “Water is now a friend of your watch.” As the current TicWatch S and E models are already rated IP67 water resistant, it appears the E2 will feature upgraded water resistance or even waterproofing.

Google Pay on Wear OS works in Germany

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

As we've learned over the past few years, having a Google service available in your country isn't enough to use it on all your devices. Google Pay, for example, is supported for in-store payments in twenty countries, but only if you're using your phone to make the transaction. If you have a Wear OS smartwatch, however, the Google Pay app won't show up on the watch unless you're in a few countries.

Diesel’s fashion-forward Full Guard 2.5 Wear OS smartwatch has a massive 2.5-inch display

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Diesel debuted its first full smartwatch last year, the On Full Guard, a bulky, 1.4-inch display-toting device powered by Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor that was clearly aimed more at achieving a particular aesthetic than serious functionality. After middling reviews and a year to mull over the original product's strengths and weaknesses, Diesel came to an important conclusion: it needed to be bigger. Thus, the Diesel Full Guard 2.5 was introduced today at IFA, with, you guessed it, a 2.5-inch display.

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.
