    Google has been constantly changing how it sells to customers. When it started with its marketplace for only digital goods meant for Android devices, it launched Android Market. Then came along the Play Store, which then merged digital sales with sales of Nexus devices, then Chrome OS, then Android Wear watches. At this ...

    When it comes to smartwatch news, this should be Apple's week. The company just took the lid of its hugely anticipated release plan for the Apple Watch, which customers will be able to start going hands-on with in just another month. And certainly, we've run our fair share of Apple Watch headlines over the course of the ...

    Delivering a smartwatch with its own internet connectivity is, to put it mildly, tricky. Besides worrying about excess battery consumption, you've got to convince users to sign up for one more line of cellular service – and if they're already dropping several hundred dollars on an accessory, an ongoing fee just to get ...

    If you haven't used a smartwatch yet you're really missing out! These wearables are in no way supposed to replace your smartphone or tablet. Rather, wearables - smartwatches in particular - are designed to work with your smartphone so you can keep it in your pocket (or on the table or nightstand) rather than pulling it ...

    I’ve spent the last couple of months debating if I should buy a Moto 360. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of hardware that I’ve seen over the last couple of months, and even after using the Gear Live for a few weeks, I simply can’t stop drooling over every Moto 360 that I see on the streets. I ...

    Mobile World Congress 2015: an iterative flagship smartphone and a reimagined one. A handheld intelligent object and a new midranger from a very old brand. And enough wearable releases to completely cover your forearms in technology. But mainly ... we just talk about the Vive. That’s right: against all odds, a room ...

    MWC has come and gone and we saw a number of really great products coming out of Barcelona. A couple of those products really broke the mold when it comes to “traditional products.” Those products were, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and the HTC Vive. Neither of these products are necessarily “new”, per se. Both are ...

    At this point, it's fair to say that much of the wind has left MWC's sails. From a Sunday packed with pre-MWC launches, we've been seeing a steady dwindling-off of new high-profile hardware as the week unfolds, and by now if a manufacturer had something good to launch at the expo, it's been launched. However, MWC isn't ...

    Right now, if you're looking to buy a smartwatch, you know to expect to pay a couple hundred dollars. And if you go for a nicer one with a premium strap (assuming you have a choice at all), we might even be talking $300, $350 – somewhere in that range. But in the very near future expectations for smartwatch pricing ...

    One of the great things about the nascent wearables market, as more and more manufacturers churn-out product after product in an effort to find what works, is that we get to see a ton of variety in the product types released. Those range from the extremely simple to models that are practically a full-fledged smartwatch ...

    Whether we're talking full-blown smartwatch or dainty little fitness tracker, users of wearables everywhere find themselves dealing with the consequences of battery life. You may recharge your watch every day, or your workout band every week, but sooner or later they're going to need new juice. Maker of connected ...

    Just a couple days into its run, and Mobile World Congress 2015 is already starting to slow down - way down.  That's largely a consequence of so many manufacturers jockeying to get their big announcements out first, leading to a pre-MWC Sunday that was positively stuffed to the brim with new hardware. Ever since, the ...

    At last year's Mobile World Congress, Android Wear and the Apple Watch weren't realities. That is to say, the wearables race at that point in time was nowhere near as heated as it has become now, and the devices themselves weren't all that abundant. This year, though, all that changes. We saw Huawei launch its new ...

    We first got our hands on the Pebble smartwatch back in the spring of 2013, following the wearable's crowdfunding campaign. About a year later, at CES 2014, we got our first look at the Pebble Steel, putting the old hardware in a shiny new package. This year Pebble took the next step forward in the evolution of its ...

    Yesterday was a hugely busy one for new mobile hardware, led off by HTC and Samsung's announcements of the One M9, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. And while those gave us plenty to pay attention to, we hadn't even really gotten MWC fully started yet - that would wait for today. And the first official day of Mobile World ...

    There’s a thing that happens at mobile trade shows ... we'll call it "time evaporation." Like Bloc Party, you make plans for good times, only to get bogged down and distracted – by videos. And articles. And all the work involved in bringing you all the news that’s fit to leave the beautiful bastion of Barcelona ...

    At MWC this year, if you're introducing a new smartwatch, it had better be one with a circular screen. LG liked that idea so much, it brought along two such models. Huawei wasn't about to be left out on this trend, either, and in addition to some new fitness tracker bands, launched a full-fledged smartwatch, the Huawei ...

    The last few weeks have been full of rumors of ambitious plans from Google: ideas we may have heard before, but picking up new layers of support, or looking to re-invent old systems with the intent of breathing new life into them. Google I/O may still be a couple months away, but today at MWC Android head Sundar Pichai ...

If you've been following today's news, that's going to seem like crazy talk to you, but manufacturers just can't wait until Monday to share word of all their new products with you, leading to today's flood of early announcements.

    The Huawei Watch isn't the only new wearable the manufacturer is introducing at MWC this year - far from it, as it turns out. Last year at MWC 2014 Huawei introduced its TalkBand B1, and now it's following that up with the TalkBand B2 and TalkBand N1 hybrid Bluetooth headset/fitness trackers. If the TalkBand B2 (below) ...

    Late last week we caught a glimpse of Huawei's newest wearable in the Barcelona airport, ahead of its MWC launch. The round-screened smartwatch looked quite sharp and ran Android Wear, but that's all we could suss out at the time. Well, now it's finally time for the smartwatch to go official, and we're getting the full ...

    I love weird phones. This isn’t really a secret. I’ve had a parade of weird phones march across my desk for the past eight months. Now, the Galaxy S6 Edge is official. Another weird phone has come to the masses! The phones themselves were shaped weird, worked in a weird way, or were just weird to use (by societal ...

    If you thought that the HTC One M9 was the only thing the Taiwanese company was preparing for MWC 2015, you were wrong. Enter the HTC Grip, the company's take on a fitness tracker, powered by UA Record, and Under Armour. Accurate tracking is the keyword HTC uses in describing the functionalities of the product, and ...
