    Sony SmartWatch 3 Review

    Sony’s new Android Wear-powered SmartWatch 3 bucks a trend of the company releasing devices that use their own wearable platform, opting instead to jump on the bandwagon that includes a host of other Android wearable OEMs. It ends up being a big benefit, when you compare this device against previous SmartWatch models, which have proven overwhelmingly uninspiring. Basics 1.6″… Read More

    Asus ZenWatch Review

    Asus has entered the Android Wear fray, with a smartwatch that features a bold design, even though it opts for a rectangular face, and materials and looks that might make it the closest we’ve seen yet from the Android camp to resembling an Apple Watch. The ZenWatch is by no means a clone, however, and it very much manages to stand out from the Wear flock, too. Asus has crafted one of… Read More

    LG G Watch R Review

    The G Watch R is LG’s second Android Wear smartwatch, which is impressive given that the platform has only been available to the general public for about half a year, and other big Android OEMs haven’t yet shipped a first device. The original G Watch felt very much like the wearable hardware equivalent of a “FIRST” Internet comment, however, delivering little in the way… Read More
