Android Wear Now Works with iPhones

The rumors were true. In a blog post by Google, it has been announced that Android Wear will not work with iPhones. Currently, the only Android Wear watch that will do the job is the LG Urbane, but all future Android Wear devices will work with iPhones. Let’s face it, this is a very good thing. Smart watches have historically been ecosystem lockers. If you had an Android Wear watch, you knew that your next…

LG G Watch R Review: Apple Watch vs Android Wear

LG G Watch R Review: Apple Watch vs Android Wear

By Rich W Woods I finally finished reviewing the LG G Watch R. I’ve found the LG G Watch R to be an extremely pleasant and beautiful Android Wear watch; however, it’s not for me. I can certainly see the appeal and it certainly has some sport uses as the large bezel keeps it from getting scratched. Check out the video where I review the LG G Watch R and compare it to the Apple…

Moto 360 Gets a $100 Price Cut to $149

LG G Watch R Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods It’s smart watch week for me. Last week, I finally received my Apple Watch Sport. I wanted to be able to compare it to Android Wear, which I believe is more intuitive than Apple Watch. I reached out to LG, asking for an Urbane. They were all out of Urbanes, so they were able to send me an LG G Watch R. I had heard good things about the LG G…

Apple Watch and Android Wear are Not Competing

By Rich W Woods Last year at Google IO, Google introduced Android Wear, along with three smart watches: the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and Moto 360.

Microsoft Band vs Android Wear: Pros and Cons

By Rich W Woods It’s been well over a week since I’ve been using the Microsoft Band and I really have to say, I’m super impressed with it. In fact, I’m so impressed with it that I gave up my Moto 360 in favor of the Microsoft Band. This is not to say that the Microsoft Band is so much better than the Moto 360 but I needed something cross-platform, being someone that gets every…

How to take a Screenshot with the Moto 360 or any Android Wear Watch

How to take a Screenshot with the Moto 360 or any Android Wear Watch

By Rich W Woods In writing my review of the Moto 360, I knew I would need to take some screenshots. Unfortunately, there is no way to do that with Android Wear. After doing a little Binging, I found some tutorials that say to connect it through USB. This would work great with a Samsung Gear Live or an LG G Watch, but the Moto 360 is wireless. Luckily, it’s very easy to do it…

Moto 360 or Other? Which Android Wear Watch should you Choose?

Moto 360 or Other? Which Android Wear Watch should you Choose?

By Rich W Woods After Google IO, two Android Wear watches were immediately released: the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. Motorola had announced the Moto 360 and they told us that it would come later this summer. Back then, if someone asked if you were going to get the Samsung Gear Live or the LG G Watch, most would have responded that they were waiting for the Moto 360. After all, it’s…
