Android Wear watch from Intel and Fossil: get ready for some competition!

A new Android Wear watch is being made and it is the fruition of a combination between Intel and Fossil. The announcement was made at the Intel Developers Conference, where Intel usually presents its new chips, but also some other things.

This watch was teased for a while now, and the first official image seems to point at a cross-breed between the Moto 360 and LG Watch Urbane. Fossil’s watch and Intel’s Tag Heuer device are the first smartwatches or Android Wear-friendly devices made by old-school watchmakers and not tech companies like LG, Samsung, Apple or ASUS. Fossil is said to possibly supply designs for well-known brands such as Michael Kors and Giorgio Armani.

 

This new Android wear watch is not the only project Fossil has going on as they will soon launch a connected bracelet and watch. It is safe to say that Intel does not want to reveal more information regarding the watch at the moment. It doesn’t have an official name or official specs yet and it is expected to launch sometime this holiday season.

 

That is all we know about the Android Wear watch from Intel and Fossil, but more details will be released soon. Stay tuned!

Gear S2 smartwatch appears in fashion shoots

Samsung pulled a fast one on us today when it teased us the new Galaxy Gear S2; we thought we would have to wait until September to know more about it. But now we can at least see it in its entire splendor because it is part of a fashion shoot.

Samsung usually partners with high fashion companies that help them create strange or unique accessories that may make the public cringe. This time the photo shoot was different because it was meant to showcase the newest devices coming out the door. The Easter egg in some of them is the Galaxy Gear S2. The new phones Note 5 and S6 Edge + are also portrayed in a desirable fashion.

 

The S2 smartwatch appears in two photos and kind of takes the light of the show and it doesn’t even look that big. The photos show a nice mélange between fashion industry and technology. The phones and smartwatch are shown as the most prized possession or ultimate accessory.

 

 

 

The fashion is questionable at best – at least by style editors’ opinion – and some even call it “fashion-for-fashion’s-sake”. Some don’t find these images seductive at all, but is every ad out there really supposed to be sexual and over-sensual in overtly trying to sell a product?

 

We will have to wait until September for more info on the Gear S2, but when that time comes we will definitely discover what the new smartphone is all about.

Android Wear 2.0 to release on October 15

Android Wear 2.0 will be released on October 15th, sources say. No official details are known as of yet, but GPS and Bluetooth headphone support are good guesses. Even if no real details are known yet, a recent CNET interview revealed the launch of a Wear OS update. We do not know what devices are getting the update and when they will receive it, but we do know a minor update will reach Wear devices next week.

The information is not official, but credible, and AndroidPolice says they rely on the source of this news.

Wear 2.0 will bring lots of bug fixes, new features and some new devices as well, considering the multitude of Wear devices announced at IFA Berlin this week. The update is also well timed with the launch of G Watch R and the Moto 360, the two most important Wear devices of the year. The update could be related to their particular launch as well. Stay tuned for more info!
