Air Berlin

Besides a complete redesign that makes some other airlines apps look tired by comparison, Air Berlin has added support for Pebble with the release of version 3.0. And that means you can get your boarding passes on your watch. Air Berlin isn't the first airline to...

The Fan TV box and remote

There's change in the air for the cable industry, and it's coming from an unlikely source: Time Warner. With over 100 million cable subscribers in the United States, almost all of them locked in to the existing system of renting a cable box from their cable subscriber. Time Warner, on the other hand, just announced a partnership with Fan TV that will see the first third-party boxes on their...

Google Glass updated to XE16.1 with no noticeable changes

Google Glass XE16.1 update

Following up on the big jump from XE12 to XE16 last week that brought Google Glass up to running KitKat, a small bugfix update to XE16.1 is now hitting the wearable. We have no official word on what the update brings, but given the relative instability we've noticed on Glass since the XE16 update we're not surprised that a quick point released bugfix update was required. As far as user-facing...

Withings Pulse O2 keeps tab on your oxygen levels

Withings has announced a new health band called Pulse O2. It does all of the usual stuff, like monitor steps, heart rate, elevation, distance traveled, sleep habits, and estimates calories burned, but the really cool feature here is the ability to monitor the oxygen level in your blood. That information is estimated from the infrared heart rate monitor, then beamed to your phone through a...

Rip Curl's new Search GPS is a smartwatch for surfers

Anastasia Ashley with the Rip Curl Search GPS smartwatch for surfers

Fitness wearables are a dime a dozen at this point, and here comes another one geared toward wave-seekers. Rip Curl has announced the SearchGPS surf watch. It’ll record your top speed and how far you’ve ridden, number of waves, and just how gnarly you truly are. (That last one’s a feature we suggest they add, anyway.) It looks a tad clunky, but function trumps form for this one. And you’ll be...

Here's how you'll charge the LG G Watch

Here's how you'll charge the LG G Watch

One more little nugget out LG's new G Watch promo page, from which we got our first look at the champagne gold and white version. It looks like you'll be charging it through some sort of dock, judging by the connector we see on the back of the watch. LG also reiterates that it'll be water-resistant (no surprise there) and that the face will be "always on," never mind that you don't actually...

LG G Watch Photo Gallery

LG G Watch Photo Gallery

We haven't seen too much of LG's G Watch previously, but along with some new details on the upcoming Android Wear device, we have some new images to go along for the ride. Sadly they don't lend too much to other new features or specs, but for those of you drooling over the G Watch, these should help satiate your appetite for a little while at least. The slimmed-down device lacks any buttons...

Sony Smartwatch 2 update brings custom watch faces, wallpapers and more

One of the biggest gripes with the Sony Smartwatch 2 was that there was no way to customize watch faces at all. Today a new update has arrived that not only adds custom watch faces to the mix, but also provides a built-in editor right within the app. You can still choose from the base set of faces that include the standard digital and analog faces in a variety of styles, but now have the option...

LG G Watch will come in gold, too

LG G Watch

Good news for those of you who want your gadgets in some color other than black. LG tonight has taken the wraps off a champagne gold G Watch, which will be one of the first members in the Android Wear club. And, well, that's pretty much still all there is. No real date for the G Watch (or its Moto 360 counterpart), other than the "summer" timeline we already knew. Unofficially it's been priced...
