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.

So it turns out that there's this big watch convention thing going on in Switzerland (hint: we didn't go), where a lot of smartwatches have debuted. Baselworld 2017 has been a hub of timepiece activity, with us seeing plenty of new entrants into the Android Wear fold. One of these is Hugo Boss with the Touch.

The Fossil Group has just announced a ton of new Android Wear-based smartwatches at the Baselworld 2017 watch show, and the Diesel On is one of them. Although Diesel has made hybrid watches before, the On is Diesel's first Android Wear device. It's a pretty unique-looking one, too. Unfortunately, the press release is incredibly hollow, with little information, only one image, and nonsensical phrases. It's so bad that it's actually kinda hilarious. Read MoreDiesel announces the On, its first Android Wear smartwatch, will start at $325 ...

Samsung is adding an LTE Gear S3 Classic to its smartwatch lineup

thumbnail

The Gear S3 Classic is probably one of my favorite smartwatches to date. The styling is great, Tizen isn't half-bad, and the rotating bezel is awesome. The only bummer for some was that Classic did not share the LTE connectivity option with its brother, the Frontier. Samsung has decided to rectify that, having just announced that the Classic will have an LTE-enabled version. It will work on AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile and will support one-number solutions (so that your phone number remains the same) for all ...
