It's bad enough that the flu can make one feel pretty terrible, but the
young, the elderly, and/or those with existing health conditions tend to

thermometer that's designed to read temperatures from the ear, track
illness symptoms, and help people take actionable steps.
Motorola's Moto 360 was one of the first smartwatches that strived to look like a traditional watch. Today the company announced the second generation Moto 360 with a bigger collection of customizable bands, bezels, colors and materials that continue to draw inspiration from the old-school wristwatch world, and probably also from the wearable elephant in the room, the Apple Watch.
Over the past year or so, Lenovo's smartphone strategy has been to build devices, like the Vibe Z2 Pro and others, with impressive specs and interesting features designed to appeal the casual photographer.

The Huawei Watch was shown off at Mobile World Congress
back in March, but the wait for it to actually go on sale has been a
long and frustrating one. Thankfully, Huawei now seems ready to launch
its newest wearable out into the world, with US pre-orders opening today
and shipments beginning on September 17th. The stainless steel and
black models are available now, with the rose gold options following
"later this year" according to Huawei.
