We’ve said it before, but in case you somehow missed it, we have been using SHIELD TV in our homes since 2015 and we love it.

The original Huawei Watch is still one of our favorite Android Wear watches of all time. It features a classic design, gorgeous display, and enough different variants to fit most of our fashion needs. It also happens to be a part of the Android Wear developer preview program, which is a bonus.

Tablets are all but dead on Android, yet Chromebooks seem to be getting more popular by the day, especially now that they have touchscreens and can essentially act like a tablet.
