With the Neptune Duo, the smartwatch plays the alpha role, with the (not quite a) phone ta...

Will smartwatches ever replace smartphones? And, if so, how will we play Candy Crush and watch Netflix or Sling TV on the go? Neptune, the company behind the ridiculously oversized Pine smartwatch, is back with a new device that tries to answer that question.  Read More

Google Glass' fortunes may have turned south, but don't count it out just yet (Original: J...

Now that the Google Glass Explorer program is officially dead, does that mean that Glass itself is dead? Though Google has explicitly said otherwise, some believe that the product is beyond repair and heading to the great rubbish bin in the sky. Sometimes, though, it's easy to overreact to short-term failures and lose sight of the big picture.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of LG's new Watch Urbane (left) and the Moto 360

LG made one of the best smartwatches of 2014, in the G Watch R. Now the company is back with an all-metal variant called the LG Watch Urbane (no "G" this time around). Let's compare its features and specs to those of the Moto 360.  Read More

LG's G Watch R was one of the more fashionable-looking smartwatches of 2014, but the LG Wa...

In the long-term, Android Wear isn't likely to be about just a small handful of watches.

Last week's Wearable Technologies Conference in Munich showcased the future of cutting edge wearable design. While much of the exhibitor area was dedicated to usual suspects like performance-tracking sensors and wearable cameras, there was one design that immediately stood out. Still just a rough concept in need of partners, the i Gel protective system proposes a full-body airbag suit for protecting motorcyclists, bikers, skiers, and other hobbyists and professionals.  Read More

The VR for G3 headset uses the Google Cardboard blueprint to provide a VR experience for L...

Samsung was the first big mobile company to stamp its name on the budding virtual reality craze, by teaming up with Oculus for the Gear VR. Now LG is using the developer-focused Google Cardboard platform to launch a G3-compatible VR headset of its own – and it isn't going to cost a penny to new G3 buyers (at least in select markets).  Read More

Buhel's SG05 SoundGlasses relay calls using bone conduction technology

There are already plenty of ways of taking hands-free phone calls, although most of those involve wearing some sort of earpiece. Not everyone enjoys having something continuously stuck in their ear, however, plus such devices lessen the user's ability to hear other sounds through that ear.

It's not unusual to get a free whistle in a box of cereal, but what about a gold bust of a Roman emperor in a wristwatch? That may sound a bit out there, but upmarket Swiss watchmaker Christophe Claret's Aventicum watch not only has a Roman theme, but also a tiny engraved golden bust of Emperor Marcus Aurelius that seems to float over the center of the dial.  Read More
