Carnegie Mellon University's Qeexo team is reporting that it has a technology that is capable of detecting the angle with which a finger is making contact with a screen. Here's how it works.
A new rumor suggests Apple is already in the middle of developing Apple Watch 2, preparing it for a release date timeframe of around third-quarter of 2016.
If you own an Apple Watch, then you will probably want a nice stand on which to charge it. They don't come much nicer than the Forté from Twelve South.
Here's how to set up and use any Android Wear watch like Moto 360 with iPhone running iOS 8.2 or above, complete with illustrated step by step instructions.
After teasing it first at its Unpacked 2015 media event in mid-August, Samsung today officially announced its new smartwatch, the Gear S2.
At the Samsung's Unpacked 2015 media event today, the South Korea-based electronics giant has dropped an unexpected surprise at the party. Samsung has just teased us with its next-gen smartwatch; the Gear S2, and it's nothing like its predecessor.
We think it's pretty fair to say that smartwatches and intelligent wearable devices are going to be with us for the long haul. What was initially nothing more than an extension of a smartphone’s notification system has developed into a huge billion dollar industry with major players such as Samsung, LG, Sony and Apple all competing for market share. Of course, it's not only the so-called "big boys" that can produce quality hardware, leaving smaller companies to get in on the action with innovative wearable solutions, which is exactly what the team behind the Indiegogo funded Kairos T-band have done.
The battle for control of our wrists is set to heat up considerably when the Apple Watch enters the fray early next year. With a plethora of Android Wear smartwatches already on the market, such as the Moto 360, LG G Watch etc. it now appears that Apple's offering will also have competition form Microsoft to consider, with multiple reports now pegging the Windows maker as being on the verge of bringing its own fitness monitor set for market before Christmas.
Although Google's announcement of Android Wear means that we're going to be seeing a bunch of smartwatches in the very near future, Samsung has already beaten its rivals to the punch with a host of releases. Starting with last year's Galaxy Gear, we've since been treated to the likes of the Gear Fit, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. But even with the Android Wear-packing Gear Live having been announced at Google's I/O, the Korean outfit is not yet done, and today, the company has taken the wraps off a Swarovski crystal-encrusted strap for the most-recent Gear S.
Although we're still waiting on the Apple iWatch and the myriad of vendors set to push out smartwatches on Android Wear, Samsung has been incredibly busy over the past twelve months. Having launched the less than appealing Galaxy Gear alongside the Galaxy Note 3 at last year's IFA, the Korean outfit then went on and showcased the Gear 2 and Gear Fit at the Mobile World Congress, and with the Gear Live announced for Android Wear at I/O, the company is still not done. For a while, it has been rumored that Sammy would unveil a device packing its own data connection, unlike the current fleet of smartphone-dependent watches, and today, the cellular Gear S has been officially unveiled.
