The latest, snazziest version of Huawei's Android Wear offerings is now on sale. The Huawei Watch 2 Classic, which is the metal-clad variant of the Huawei Watch 2, is now available for purchase at Amazon and Best Buy. It is also available for preorder at B&H. If you've been waiting to grab one, now you can. In our review of the non-classic, plastic-clad variant, we didn't find it to be quite at the level of excellence that its predecessor strove for, but the sporty styling of ...

Android TV is getting a new launcher with Android O

thumbnail

Android TV hasn't had much attention from Google in the past few months. The first Android O Developer Preview had no noticeable differences on the platform, and YouTube TV still doesn't have an Android TV application. I suppose good things come to those who wait, because Android TV is getting a brand new launcher with Android O. The launcher has mostly stayed the same since the platform's introduction in 2014. The top row has recommendations from all of your installed applications (as long as they support the ...

NBC releases its app for Android TV

thumbnail

Last night the US cable network NBC released an app for streaming content to the Android TV platform. It's pretty similar to NBC's other Android app, but, you know, for Android TV. The UI has been reworked to look better on a larger-format display but, presumably, offers all the same content you expect.   NBC did a major update to the Android app last fall, and some of that same design language seems to be present in the Android TV version, as well.

Leaks of Fitbit’s latest watch show the spirit of the 80s is alive at Fitbit

thumbnail

It looks like Fitbit's latest smatwatch has been leaked today. The writers over at Yahoo Finance managed to get ahold of some images of the new device, and it's very unique looking, with a brightly colored square beveled-edge aluminum unibody design, a textured rubber strap, and knurled buttons. It certainly sets itself apart from most other wearables. It's... not the best-looking device I've seen, but the super-bright 1000 nit display, GPS support, and alleged 4-day battery life might compensate for that and provide it with a ...
