Huawei Watch goes down in price again

A price reduction is good, but to be reduced twice this week? That’s something. This is the Huawei Watch and I’ve actually just had a “moment” while looking at the Amazon listing. “Ohh”, I thought, “That looks nice, I wonder what it’s like?” Yeah. I’d actually forgotten about …

Android Wear getting iOS support

MyRoll gallery has been around for a few months now, offering a nice gallery replacement app with a nice UI and it bundles your photos together into Moments. The developers have updated the app with a nice material style and rather interestingly they’ve added Android Wear support. So …

A closer look at the Moto 360

We got a brief introduction to the not-quite-available-yet Moto 360 smartwatch just a few days ago, but here’s a closer look at the device. It has a tiny bezel and a screen which almost seems to float on the top of the watch, but is slightly thick. As …
