Guess goes all in on Android Wear 2.0 as it reboots its smartwatch strategy

While we haven’t seen too much in the way of must-have Android Wear 2.0 wearables from traditional tech companies like LG or Google, fashion watch makers are fully embracing Google’s new mobile OS. In the past week, Tag Heuer and Montblanc have both announced Android Wear 2.0-powered smartwatches, and now Guess is looking to get some skin in the game too. The company announced at Baselworld that it will be releasing a range of smartwatches powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 2100 chip, both under its own Guess moniker and the higher-end Gc brand. The new watches represent something of a reboot for the original Connect, which was released in late 2015 as a hybrid powered by Martian.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Fossil updates its three Q watches to Android Wear 2.0

When Google announced Android Wear 2.0 was finally ready to ship, a bunch of watch makers lined up to be first to push out the new update. Now, Fossil is among the first to make good on its promise, announcing it has begun pushing the new OS to its trio of smartwatches. Owners of the Fossil Q Wander, Q Marshal, and Q Founder can now enjoy all (well, most) of the new features of Android Wear 2.0, including the standalone apps, an on-watch Play Store, improved navigation, and fitness enhancements. However, since the original batch of Android Wear watches weren’t built with NFC chips inside them, they won’t be able to take advantage of the new Android Pay support.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

LG Watch Sport review: Not the watch Android Wear needs right now

Android Wear has a problem. Sales are slow. Motorola is backing out. Samsung has its own watch platform. What Google’s watch ecosystem needs is a reboot. New software, new hardware, fresh marketing, the works. Unfortunately, the two LG watches chosen to be the launch partners for the new Android Wear 2.0 platform fall well short of the fresh, forward-looking, “gotta have it” hardware that’s really needed. The LG Style is missing some of Wear 2.0’s best features, and the LG Sport, which showcases everything Wear 2.0 has to offer, is laden with faults.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The ultimate guide to increasing your Android phone’s battery life

We all use our phones differently. And while the batteries inside them should be plenty big enough to last all day without worry, that’s not always the case.

Let alone actually last as long as the spec sheets claim. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are quite a few ways your phone’s battery can adapt to your particular routine, and with a few tweaks and toggles, you’ll can gain precious minutes and even hours on a charge. No matter how big your battery is, you can squeeze a little more juice out of it just by making a few changes, some of which you won’t even notice.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The 12 worst Android phone gimmicks once hailed as ‘innovations’

Sometimes innovation is best left on the drawing boardImage by Ryan WhitwamIt’s hard for a phone to get noticed by consumers when it looks like all the other flat black slabs out there.

In fact, there are a lot of gimmicks that look cool at a tradeshow, but in real life they’re terrible ideas.
