Android smart watches get in time with iPhone

GadgetMix2

Android smartwatches are starting to become known amongst consumers and tech enthusiasts. But some people are unsure about the differences between Android smartwatches and other brands of smartwatches, like the Apple Watch. Those who enjoy Apple over Google may not want to switch to Android Wear just to try out a different operating system. Well it seems that Google may have a way to solve this problem because they are releasing a new version of their Android Wear software that is designed for Apple’s “iOS” mobile operating system. Android Wear for iOS will be available for the LG Watch Urbane. In the future, there will be other Android Wear smartwatches that will support the Apple iOS. Some of these watches will be Asus, Huawei, and Motorola. Google plans to keep people informed on the latest developments in these future releases. 

This latest move seems to be Google’s way of competing with the highly awaited Apple Watch. When people put on one of these Android smartwatches, it will be able to communicate with their iPhone because of the iOS integration. Now people who are predominately iPhone users can now purchase another Android device and use them together. Before, consumers generally had to stick with one brand. If they bought an Android phone then every other device the purchase had to be Android as well. The same went for Apple users too. People with iPhones needed iPads, iPods and so on. When Android Wear was first released it was only able to work with a Google operating system. But with this new ability for Android Wear to communicate with an iOS, it opens up all kinds of possibilities for cross brand communication.

 Right now the fitness tracker Fitbit is the top selling smartwatch with Apple Watch coming in second place. It would be very hard for Android to make itself stand out amongst these top two competitors unless they did something unique with their smartwatches that no one else has done. This new move by Android will likely be the thing that keeps their watches selling and keeps them stable in the marketplace. For one thing, Android Wear is only $100 whereas the Apple Watch starts at $500. Most people are not going to pay $500 when they can pay $100, especially if it will communicate with their existing iPhone. The one bad thing Apple has going for it is its prices. They are always the most expensive computer brand on the market. Since smartwatches are not really that popular to begin with, it is unlikely that consumers will keep shelling out $500 for the newest Apple Watch. Therefore, Google has a strong chance of getting their Android Wear ahead of the game.

Samsung just revealed the innovative new way its next smartwatch will operate

images-1

Samsung has already become a worthy competitor in the smartwatch marketplace. The thing about smartwatches is that you can’t do too much more to improve them. The only thing you can really do is improve the exterior look. The Apple Watch has a rotating crown that fans of the company seem to enjoy. So in response, Samsung revealed that it will have a rotating bezel in its next smartwatch model. The bezel will be shaped like a circle, which is different than the square shaped bezel of the Apple Watch. Critics believe Samsung is trying to differentiate their watches from Apple’s watches as much as they can by using a different shaped bezel on them. However, the Moto 360 also uses a round bezel design on their smartwatch. But they use the Google Android operating system whereas Samsung uses their own operating system called Tizen OS. Therefore, this operating system may be the only thing besides the round bezel that encourages iOS users and Android users to switch to a Samsung smartwatch.

The smartwatches that have been released in the marketplace so far have relied on simple side buttons and touchscreen tapping in order to operate it. But this can become a problem for people who have fat fingers and end up touching the wrong buttons on the small smartwatch screen. That is why the rotating bezel will come in very handy in the new Samsung smartwatch. It will allow users to navigate and control the functions of the watch by simply rotating the bezel. This means people with fat fingers won’t have such a difficult time anymore because they can easily rotate the bezel with their fingers.

Smartwatches are still very new to consumers and they are just starting to get familiar with them. That is why if a company creates a smartwatch that looks good and is easy to use, then users will rush to purchase that watch. It seems like Samsung is working really hard to try and achieve this goal. The only way a competitor could outwit Samsung is by either creating new features on their own smartwatch or by having a lower price. Right now all of the new smartwatches seem to be priced at around $200, so there doesn’t seem to be much differentiation in price. But if one of the companies were to release a watch at around $150, then perhaps they could get more buyers. Only time will tell.

 

 

You’ll Be Able To Buy The Apple Watch In April (AAPL)

Buy Apple Watch in AprilSmartwatches have taken the tech community by storm. And of course, any kind of gadget that Apple releases is sure to draw attention. That is why excitement has already stirred up in the tech community after Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the “Apple Watch” was going to be available in April. He did not mention a specific date for April, but it still has people curious about it because there was not much information revealed about the watch itself. That is why Apple will likely have another event where the specifications of the Apple Watch are gone over more thoroughly. People at the unveiling last September only got a tiny glimpse of its abilities.

The biggest deciding factor for people when it comes to purchasing anything is cost. Consumers have been pretty quick to purchase anything Apple though. But on the upside, the cheapest variation of the Apple Watch will be around $350. This is still kind of expensive, but not as expensive as a new iPhone. The variations of the watch itself have to do with the materials it is made out of. Some of the cheaper models will be made out of stainless steel while others will be made out of gold. So these aren’t just going to be technical gadgets that you are wearing on your wrist. They can literally be called jewelry because they will be as valuable as real jewelry. The gold Apple Watches are expected to cost in the vicinity of $5,000.

The second thing people consider in their gadgets is battery life. For the Apple Watch, its battery life is currently a mystery to people. The only information revealed by Apple was that you will have to charge your watch every night. This could mean the watch will stay charged all day, so by the time you go to sleep you can just recharge it then for the next day. Some rumors suggest the watch may have 19 hours of battery life on a single charge. This is more than enough battery life for most people who sleep 8 hours per day and are up for only 16 hours.

People are anxiously awaiting the next update as April is only two months away. Variations of the Apple Watch are expected to have different components in them as well. We will just have to wait until Apple’s next announcement in order to find out what these components are.

Sony Is Secretly Creating A Watch Made Of Electronic Paper That Changes With Your Gestures

 

Sony is Secretly Creating

Smartwatches have certainly grown popular by tech enthusiasts. These are the smart

wearables that you wear on your wrist like a watch. It can give you real time data about your

heart rate, speed and distance traveled. They can even connect to your other mobile devices as

well. But, the one thing people always seemed to complain about with smartwatches was its

fashion design. They have usually been too bulky or too heavy for many people, which made

them uncomfortable to wear. That is why it should be no surprise that Sony is working on a way

to change this.

Sony is working on a new smartwatch called “FES Watch,” which is the first smartwatch

to be made out of electronic paper. This would be exciting news to people who know what

electronic paper is. For others who have never heard the concept, they might still be thinking of

traditional paper. This is understandable because electronic paper has not really gotten much

media attention, even though it is a very impressive piece of technology. It is basically a “device”

that is about as thin as paper and which you can write on. Then instead of throwing the paper out

when you are done writing, you can erase the text on the e-paper and use it to write on again. It

can also display upload images, eBooks and any other designs you put into it. So basically, the

electronic paper has the ability to change looks at any time it is programmed to.

Sony has branded these electronic paper wearables under “Fashion Entertainments.” Now

people will be able to change the design and color of their watches without having to buy a new

one. Instead they can experiment with hundreds of designs and even get creative by putting their

own designs on the watch. But the excitement of Fashion Entertainments doesn’t stop there.

They are also experimenting with bow ties made out of electronic paper as well. Right now the

company has used the Japanese crowd funding website, Makuake, to raise money. They have

been fortunate to raise $2.7 million yen so far. That is worth about $23,000 in U.S. Dollars.

Everyone who contributed to the fund will be able to order the FES Watch in May of 2015.

Smartwatches have never really been huge with consumers, but the innovation of the electronic

paper being used in wearables will certainly make an impression to tech enthusiasts.

Apple Watch will give everyone a super-intelligent fitness coach

4 Apple Watch

For all those people who make excuses about how they don’t have the motivation to lose weight, now they will have motivation with the new Apple Watch. This smartwatch technology contains a personal fitness coach with super intelligence right inside the watch. The coach will send you motivation messages to inspire you to get off the coach and start exercising. Then while you are doing your exercises, like walking and jogging, it will tell you the intensity of the exercise and how well you are doing them. If it detects that your form is off or that you aren’t going fast enough, it will give you suggestions on how you can improve your workout. The new Apple Watch will be like having your own personal trainer strapped to your wrist all day. Then you will never have to hire an expensive personal trainer by the hour ever again. Instead, just make a onetime purchase of the watch and you will get a trainer for life.

 

There are plenty of smartwatches on the market that keep track of things like heart rate, distance traveled, time elapsed and so on. The Apple Watch will blow these out of the water. It will push you to the edge during your workouts by having a voice prompt you to get more reps in and work harder. It is like having your own workout partner that is giving you inspiration. Plus, the watch will be able to connect to the internet and download various exercise routines. Then when you go to perform these exercises, it will track your form on those as well and tell you if you’re doing them wrong. It will also count how many sets and repetitions you have done of a particular exercise. That way you don’t have to keep writing it down on a chart or piece of paper like a lot of people do in the gym.

Apple has not released too much information about the watch such as its release date and cost. They are likely still trying to build up enough anticipation for the device. After all, smartwatches are not the biggest selling pieces of smart technology. Since there is already competition on the market for smartwatches, Apple may be waiting to dominate the marketplace with all of the new advanced features of their Apple Watch. By the sounds of what it can do, it is very likely that it may just become a top selling product during the time of its release.

Apple Watch

AppleWatchSmartwatches have been slowly growing in popularity amongst techies. Apple is trying to get in on the action with their newest innovation, the “iWatch.” If you are not familiar with smartwatches, these are basically similar to the watches you wear around your wrist. The difference with smartwatches is that they can do much more than just tell time. They can monitor your heart rate, distance traveled, speed and more. The new Apple iWatch is going to have a lot of emphasis on monitoring health as well. That is why Apple hired a former employee of Nike, Jay Blahnik, and a former employee that has worked in medicine, Divya Nag, in order to help with the function of the iWatch. These employees have been assigned to the “special projects” area of this innovative development. Of course, nothing official about their work with Apple has been released yet. There are merely suspicions and rumors regarding their reasoning for quitting their former jobs to go work for Apple. After all, they already had great jobs with popular companies. Why quit those jobs for the role of “Special Projects” over at Apple? This is likely a temporary job anyways, unless they will continue assisting Apple in the development of more Smartwatches in the future.

The Apple iWatch is projected to be released in October of this year and will connect to the “Healthbook app” that is featured in the iOS 8. This is the reason why suspicion has grown surrounding these special projects that are being worked on by former employees of the health industry. They might not exactly be computer engineers or app programmers, but their advice on health and fitness could go a long way in helping the Apple geniuses program their app software. Overall, the Smartwatch market still has a long way to go before it becomes as main stream as Smartphones. After all, why would somebody want to purchase any kind of Smartwatch when they can just use the health app on their Smartphone to give them the same results? The only answer to this question is the ability for people to wear the device on their wrists without having to carry it or attach it to some clip on their belt. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to watch movies and videos on your Smartwatch just yet. However, as time goes on the technology of a Smartwatch may be able to achieve the same things as your Smartphone.
