Despite attempts to the contrary, the smartwatch industry has slowed. Surprisingly, it's been the luxury brands that have kept Android Wear alive well into 2017. Some of their efforts have been disappointing, but that hasn't stopped Louis Vuitton from tossing its hat into the ring. This is the Tambour Horizon, a smartwatch whose price starts at the paltry sum of $2,450.

We're still waiting to see if Android Wear 2.0 does any favors for the platform, but in the meantime it's tough to justify spending a lot on a new smartwatch. The Huawei Watch 2 starts at $300, but you can get one for $35 off today on eBay. That's more probably justifiable for Android nerds. The watch available on eBay is the black "sport" version of the Huawei Watch 2 (the other colors are listed as out of stock). Read More Huawei Watch 2 on sale ...

If the fancy round Android Wear watches just aren't your style (or you're looking for something more fitness-focused), then this deal might interest you. Amazon has the Polar M600 for $250.29, which means that your total savings will be $79.66. As you can tell, the M600 is not a watch that is meant to look pretty. It has a Fitbit look to it, but with Wear 2.0. You also get a MediaTek MT2601, a 1.3" 240x240 TFT display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 500mAh battery, 24/7 ...

B&H has several versions of the 360 on sale, including the gold watch at $190 ($380 at launch). Read More Moto 360 v2 on sale as low ...

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 ...

The latest version of Google's wearables OS, Android Wear 2.0, began its painfully slow rollout at the end of March. In fact, It's only just beginning to make it to most mainstream devices. While health is a key selling point for Wear 2.0, the platform clearly isn't accomplished enough for Alphabet-owned health division Verily. They've just announced the Study Watch, an investigational smartwatch designed to passively collect rich, complex data for use in clinical studies.
