An update for Android Wear was announced this morning by Google and will start to rollout to all watches over the “next few weeks.” The update will introduce expanded functionality to items like voice actions and gestures, but will also activate the speaker (for those with speakers) that has been hidden for months inside of select devices.

We have been spreading reasons why you should buy the top Android smartphones on the market, but starting today, we are shifting our focusing to smartwatches and will kick things off with the Moto 360 Sport. Released earlier this month, the Moto 360 Sport is Motorola’s hybrid device, created to meld both fitness tracking and smartwatch functionality into a usable, easy to understand device.
Having recently reviewed it, I came away very impressed with its ability to track my fitness routines, while also giving me the info I need that comes directly from my smartphone. This includes email alerts, Hangouts notifications, as well as Google Maps info when I am busy driving myself around town. The Moto 360 Sport is the first true attempt at combining everything you need from a fitness tracker and baking it into an Android Wear smartwatch, so again, if you have not yet checked it out, read our full review.
If you already went through the review, or just don’t have time, here are three reasons why the Moto 360 Sport is a good buy for you. (more…)
At CES, TAG Heuer announced an update to its Connected app on Android that would introduce the first wave of custom watch faces from the company’s ambassadors. Those ambassadors include the likes of Tom Brady, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jeremy Lin, G.E.M., David Guetta, Kai Lenny, Jessica Korda, and more.
Since we happen to have a TAG Heuer Connected in house (our review), we fired up the app to see what was in store. What we found are about what you would expect – a bunch of watch faces from the ambassadors that will please ultra-fans of each, but won’t necessarily work for someone who just wants a clean, no non-sense watch face. Maybe we’ll get more of those in the next update, eh, TAG?
Either way, here they all are. (more…)
We already named the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) the best Android Wear device you could buy in 2015, but it’s 2016 now, and Motorola has a new device for those who enjoy going for runs and hitting the gym. Recently released, the Moto 360 Sport has fitness on the mind, complete with a bunch of sensors to help collect data for all of your calorie and step tracking needs.
While Motorola has been somewhat dominating the Android Wear game with practically priced, fashion-friendly smartwatches, can the Moto 360 Sport, priced at $299, get folks who are interested in Fitbits and fancy step counters to dive all of the way into the world of Android Wear?
This is our Moto 360 Sport review. (more…)
The Moto 360 Sport went on sale in the US last week through both Motorola’s online shop and Amazon. Today, Motorola’s new sport-ready watch joined the list of Android Wear watches at the Google Store as well.
For the same $299 price, you can order the Moto 360 Sport from Google, in case you (for some reason) had issue ordering from those other two outlets. (more…)
Android Wear is now on Twitter, folks. That means all the hot and heavy Wear news you can handle from a single account. To stay up to date on all of the latest in Android-powered smartwatches, this account is probably worth a follow. Not that you won’t get your news from us as well, but you know, Twitter or something.

During CES, there is all sorts of fun that happens behind closed doors, in “exclusive” or private settings, most of which is never meant to go public. Last week, though, we attended a private event by the folks at TAG Heuer, who were there to make an announcement involving their Connected smartwatch, an announcement that is now public. On January 20, the luxury watchmaker will introduce new watch faces via Android app, all of which were made in partnership with their brand ambassadors. (more…)
New Balance is ready to get into the age of digital sport, tracking, and community.
