Commoditised Android Wear coming soon
Remember Mlais? The Hong Kong smartphone startup is back with its first Android Wear watch, based on MediaTek’s new MT2601 platform.
$99 for first gen square, $199 for round G Watch R
Competition in the Android Wear segment is heating up, which is good news for consumers, as there are some nice deals to be had.
Free up Android Wear
Huawei has called for Google to free up its Android Wear software and allow it to be more customisable.
Factory reset of the watch helps
Apple has finally launched the Apple Wath and all of a sudden the world will be crazy about smartwatches. This actually plays quite well for Google, as there is no doubt that the sales of Android Wear devices will spike as well.
Spec unknown, but the Huawei Watch is a looker
Look out Moto and LG, you no longer have a monopoly on good looking, round smartwatches – thanks to the guys and gals at Huawei.
700 mAh battery, VoLTE meets fancy design
LG is obviously very serious about smartwatches, as it is about to announce its fourth watch, but this one is not based on Google's Android Wear operating system.
Promises better battery life, loads of features
Broadcom has announced a new smartwatch platform, designed to cut the power consumption in Android Wear devices.
New MT2601 SoC inside
MediaTek recently showed off a number of smartwatch designs, including models designed for the tiny MT2502 Aster process, and some Android Wear prototypes.
67% CAGR, $32.9bn by the end of the decade
The smartwatch is still in its infancy, but analysts are already bullish, and many expect the market to take off in 2015, thanks to the upcoming Apple Watch launch, as well as new Android Wear devices.
