We’ve covered the Samsung Gear S from the time it was leaked to its announcement at the IFA 2014 in Berlin – and this is one unique wearable that has its own SIM card and hence, its own data connection.

Lenovo might have an actual commercial wearable soon, but it won't be as ambitious as its C1 Google Glass rival . This Lenovo Smartband, with a model number SW-B100, is quite simply a modest fitness tracker that hooks up with a smartphone for your usual notifications and data syncing. Everyone is getting into wearables these days, so it isn't surprising that Lenovo wants to be there too.
With the LG G Watch R here at the start of the year 2015, we've got very little competition in smartwatches. There are several Android Wear watches made by top-tier brands and a few smart watches made by brands we've not ended up sticking with for long. But for now, it's a war with hardware.

Some say that I'm an Australian. And that as well as being an Engineer, I also enjoy a good game and my Android devices, currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 7. All you need to know though is I review hardware and games, write news, and manage the AndroidSPIN Facebook and Pinterest pages.

We’ve covered Samsung’s “A Series” pretty extensively before in terms of leaks and what to expect . We know that somehow – starting with the Samsung Galaxy Alpha – the South Korean gadget giant was out to prove naysayers wrong, that it can’t build a metal phone of note.
Rather than a smartwatch, how about a watch that’s simply smarter?

Before the holidays Verizon was nice enough to send me the LG G Android Wear-based watch to test drive. It seems like I’m always excited about wrist worn gadgets until I actually strap them to my wrist. Once I do, I quickly tire of them. I was hoping the LG G Watchwould buck that trend. After all, I love Android and I love gadgets. But like always, my darn wrist let me down.
