Apple Watch may play the importent role in wireless charging

Apple Watch may play the importent role in wireless charging

Apple's embrace of wireless charging for its new Watch may be a defining moment for a technology that's languished for years amid competing standards and consumer confusion.Supporters of wireless charging see a future where people no longer worry about topping up their gadgets; are free from tangled power cords and low-battery warnings and where terms like "outlet" and "plugged in" will be as anachronistic as "dialling" a phone.Users seem to like the idea too: in a recent survey by technology consultancy IHS, 83% were interestedin wireless charging; in China, the figure was 91%.But, while the technology is largely there to do this, competition to set a global standard is getting in the way of delivery. It's reminiscent of the Betamax vs VHS videotape wars of three or four decades ago, or t...

Moto 360 Review: Fail to Impress

Moto 360 Review: Fail to Impress

The Moto 360 has a lot to live up to. Motorola's wearable spoiled our first taste of Android Wear smartwatches back in July, leaving the first square-faced examples to run the platform looking hopelessly geeky in comparison. Arguably the closest to a regular watch in design we've seen so far, and - though the Apple Watch may respectfully disagree - quite possibly the most handsome, the Moto 360 certainly has the style box ticked, but is that enough to earn a place on the wrist?DesignUntil now, wearing a smartwatch has effectively singled you out as a geek. Options like Pebble Steel have shifted the needle away from "Dick Tracy" and closer to something more akin to a high-end Casio, but it's still a long way away from the sort of timepieces traditional watch fans would o...

Apple Watch will automatically lock when stolen

Apple Watch will automatically lock when stolen

Even after getting our hands on with the Apple Watch we still have a lot of questions about Apple's first wearable, for example, what happens if a thief gets their hands on it?They wouldn't just be absconding with a $349 smartwatch, but also your iTunes account and credit cards though Apple Pay.Cult of Mac claims users can rest easier because the Apple Watch will automatically lock whenever the user takes off their watch. Supposedly the Apple Watch has sensors on its backside that will detect when it's not being worn and locks down the payment options behind a passcode as a security measure.Of course, it's possible the wearable thief could also crack your passcode, but there will likely be some sort of added "Find my Apple Watch" security that allows users to remotely wipe their smartwatch...

ASUS announces their first wearable device, the ZenWatch

ASUS announces their first wearable device, the ZenWatch

The smartwatches have started their grand entrance even before IFA 2014 has officially started. ASUS announced the arrival of the ZenWatch, the Taiwanese OEM’s first smartwatch and it is in partnership with Google. It is now officially the fifth wearable on the Android Wear platform, after the Samsung Gear Live, the LG G Watch and G Watch R, and the soon to be launched Moto 360.Aside from being a smartwatch that you can pair with your Android device that runs on 4.3 and higher, the ZenWatch is also being positioned as a "wellness manager” as it can track several of your health-related statistics. This includes number of steps taken, calories burned, heart rate, activity intensity and even relaxation level, all through your smartwatch’s 9-axis sensor and bio sensor, as well as the ASU...

Apple Watch effect: LG cuts G Watch price

Apple Watch effect: LG cuts G Watch price

Apple's long rumoured smartwatch may be months away from actually being strapped onto consumers' wrists, but Google is wasting no time discounting one of its Android-based wearables.Google Play Store kicked off "special fall savings" on the Android Wear-powered LG G Watch, which is now $50 cheaper than it was prior to the debut of Apple Watch at a media event in Cupertino on Tuesday.Now priced at $179 in the same Black Titan or White Gold color schemes, the discounted price appears ill-timed in the wake of Apple showing its own smartwatch hand yesterday, although that wearable won't hit stores until early 2015 at a price tag of $349 and up.For owners of compatible Android handsets, that makes G Watch a bargain by comparison (especially considering Apple Watch requires an iPhone 5 or later)...
