The Apple Watch was the most popular smartwatch in the world from the moment it was announced, and we'd imagine the Moto 360 is the most popular Android Wear watch. We have both in-house, so why not take a quick look at two very different approaches to the smartwatch.
Microsoft has really picked up its Surface game in the last year. First the Surface Pro 3 took a big step forward, and now the Surface 3 brings many of the same principles to a smaller and cheaper device. Read on for Gizmag's Surface 3 early impressions.
LG's first Android Wear watch was pretty uneventful, but the company took a big leap forward with its fast follow-up, the G Watch R. Now LG's third Wear smartwatch, which is almost identical to that second one, is also available. Read on, for Gizmag's LG Watch Urbane review.
The smartphone world is one of never-ending oneupmanship. About a month after the launch of two of the best phones we've seen, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, LG is trying to knock the new kings of the mountain off their perch. But can the LG G4 keep up? Let's compare the G4 to the Galaxy S6 and GS6 edge.
How will the arrival of the Apple Watch
affect Google's Android Wear
? Well, we probably won't see evidence of that until later this year, but we do now at least have our hands on the first Wear watch to go on sale
after the Apple Watch. Read on for our first impressions of the LG Watch Urbane (and the new version of Android Wear that it's running).
The LG G3
wasn't a perfect phone, but it still cracked our list of the top handsets of 2014
. Can the company's 2015 flagship, the LG G4
, do better? We can start by comparing the two phones' features and specs.
After more than two years' worth of rumors, the Apple Watch is finally here. As the company's most closely-watched launch in five years, can it follow the Sasquatch-sized footprints of the iPod, iPhone and iPad? Join Gizmag, as we review the Apple Watch.
LG's flagship smartphones don't have the marketing clout of rivals from Apple and Samsung (and apparently LG also lags behind in secrecy, as the new LG G4 was leaked from here to Timbuktu before today's announcement). But the G4 will be worth keeping an eye on, with some key improvements to its display and rear camera over last year's G3
. Oh, and there's also that cowhide you'll find on its backside.
When LG announced its latest Android Wear smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane
, earlier this year, it didn't go into detail on exact pricing or release info. That changed today, on the eve of the LG G4 announcement, with Google now taking orders for the all-metal watch.
In case you haven't heard, a smartwatch from a little fruit company in California started shipping today. Gizmag has an Apple Watch in house, along with some early thoughts (very
early, mind you, as we're going to take some time before running our full Apple Watch review).
