Android Wear is here.

Gizmag snagged a Samsung Gear Live, and, though it's too early for a full Gear Live or Android Wear review, we do have a few early thoughts on the new smartwatch and the new OS.  Read More

Android Wear is on its way, with watches running Google's new wearable-focused OS landing in a couple of weeks.

A small notification card cover the lower part of the clock screen

The word from Google I/O this week was that the intriguing Moto 360 would not be available until later on in the northern summer.

Many wearable tech devices get the job done, but aren't necessarily very good looking. It's an image that devices like the Netatmo June, the Cuff and the Pebble Steel are trying to change.

What's old is new again, as Gizmag reviews the Pebble Steel smartwatch

When companies release follow-ups to their existing devices, they usually bring some upgrades to the table. Bigger screen here, faster processor there and maybe some fun new features.

Most of the wearable computers we've seen so far have been unabashedly masculine. Okay, to be fair, women can enjoy Google Glass or a Gear 2 smartwatch just as easily a man can (and I know some awesome women who do). But I'd also bet that most buyers of these beefy and utilitarian devices have been geeky, early-adopting men. Ringly, on the other hand, is the rare wearable that's being marketed solely to women.  Read More
