[Update: Rolling out now] Android Wear v2.9 will add unread notification counter and more

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

Google just started rolling out Android Wear 2.8 earlier this month, but it's already talking about Wear 2.9. Like the last update, this one isn't making huge changes to the nature of Wear. It does, however, include a few new options for notification counters on your watch face and some changes to the way developers handle complications.

[Deal Alert] Verizon’s discontinued Wear24 smartwatch is down to just $49.99 ($300 off) with coupon code

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Last May, Verizon thought it would be a good idea to start selling a $350 Android Wear smartwatch. Several months later, it discontinued the Wear24, and the leftovers have been popping up at a steep discount ever since. Today, the Wear24 has hit an all-time low price of just $50. That's $300 less than the original price.

The Wear24 is mostly the same spec-wise as any other "premium" Wear device right now.

Skagen Falster Android Wear smartwatch now available for $275-295

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Earlier this month, Fossil announced new Android Wear-based smartwatches, under its Kate Spade and Skagen brands. Both watches use the same round frame that the Misfit Vapor and Fossil Q Control have, but with different lug styles and bands. Now you can buy the Skagen Falster smartwatch, starting at $275.

The watch has a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, with a round OLED screen of an unspecified resolution. Compared to the Misfit Vapor and Fossil Q Control, the Falster has a larger side button and larger lugs.

Android Wear v2.9 will add unread notification counter and more

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Google just started rolling out Android Wear 2.8 earlier this month, but it's already talking about Wear 2.9. Like the last update, this one isn't making huge changes to the nature of Wear. It does, however, include a few new options for notification counters on your watch face and some changes to the way developers handle complications.

Starting in Wear 2.9, a dot-style indicator (which was optional before) will be displayed by default at the bottom of watch faces to indicate you have unread notifications.

The theme is darker, and notifications are getting some potentially interesting changes.

Google has provided a vague changelog of the v2.8 update. Here's what we've got.

TAG Heuer has an Android Wear watch that costs $200K

Monday, January 15th, 2018

TAG Heuer's been showing off a bunch of its watches in Geneva, and one model, in particular, has caught our eye. In addition to the new smaller and cheaper Modular 41 announced yesterday, TAG Heuer has been showing off a diamond-encrusted white gold version of its Modular 45. This Android Wear-powered ostentation can be yours for a mere $200K (190’000 CHF). 

The watch is part of TAG Heuer's Modular 45 series, though this model has the "Full Diamond" name attached to it as well, which makes sense. With 589 diamonds spread across almost every exterior surface on the bezel and bracelet (totaling 23.35 carats), it's pretty full of them.

Blocks modular smartwatch has started shipping to backers after official launch at CES

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Remember when dreaming about modular electronics was all the rage? Even Google got caught up in the fantasy for a little while. Project Ara's notion of a modular smartphone might be dead for now, but there's still a smartwatch with interchangeable components to capture our attention in 2018. Blocks raised $1.6 in a Kickstarter campaign that ended way back in 2015, and there must have been concerns that the product would never make it into production.

Android Wear app hits 10 million downloads on the Play Store

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Android Wear has been out for several years now, though it can't be considered a commercial success. After all that time, the companion app has just reached 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store. That being said, that figure doesn't allow us to draw any conclusions about sales figures.

The Android Wear app is necessary to set up any Android Wear watch, allowing you to check on a watch's status, change watchfaces, adjust settings, and so on.

Weekend poll: Are you giving someone an Android device for the holidays?

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

Finding the right gift for someone this time of year can be tricky. But if there's one thing we're apt to recommend here at Android Police, it's an Android device.

Ripping open that wrapping paper to find a phone or tablet is an excellent way to cap off your holiday. It's better to give than to receive, though, and with all the recent sales, it doesn't have to be a very costly proposition.
