Save up to $50 on the TomTom Spark, one of the best GPS fitness watches around

When someone says the name “TomTom,” fitness trackers definitely aren’t the first things that come to mind.

It looks like Watch battery life is still a problem Apple can’t easily fix

It looks like Watch battery life is still a problem Apple can’t easily fix

One of the things we expect Apple and other device makers to fix in the coming years is battery life. We want more juice, but without compromising on features, especially when it comes to smartphones and wearables, devices that can’t house generous batteries. A new report detailing the features of the Apple Watch 2 reveals that Apple is yet to fix battery life for its next-gen wearable, and the company will ditch a feature that some users want: cellular connectivity that would give the device more independence.

Apple Watch ‘architect’ opens up about what developing the Apple Watch was really like

Apple Watch ‘architect’ opens up about what developing the Apple Watch was really like

The Apple Watch hasn’t yet become the groundbreaking and culturally transformative device many initially assumed it would be, but one would be hard-pressed to call the device a flop just yet. As we highlighted last week, the Apple Watch 2 will introduce a number of compelling new features that may transform it into an unequivocal and mainstream hit product as opposed to a device worn by a niche and passionate group of users.

With the Apple Watch nearly 18 months old, Fast Company recently sat down with former Apple employee Bob Messerschmidt, an integral member of the team that helped bring the Apple Watch to market. Specifically, Messerschmidt helped develop the heart rate sensor on the Apple Watch, one of the devices more widely used and important features. Indeed, there have even been instances where the Apple Watch’s heart sensor has helped save lives.

Apple Watch 2 will be the game-changing device we’ve been waiting for

Apple Watch 2 will be the game-changing device we’ve been waiting for

Colored by the immense success Apple experienced with both the iPhone and the iPad, the Apple Watch launched in April of 2015 with tremendous fanfare and exceedingly high expectations. It would soon become apparent, however, that the first-gen version of the Apple Watch was not destined to become an immediate hit in the same way that the iPad burst onto the scene and broke any number of consumer electronics sales records.

Apple’s next wearable might not be a new Apple Watch

Apple’s next wearable might not be a new Apple Watch

Apple is often advised to launch new products that will ensure the company’s future beyond the iPhone, but the company is yet to make any announcements. The Apple Watch marks the latest new product entry for the company, a highly successful product that’s often downplayed in the media. Reports based on indirect evidence and Apple’s own statements suggest that the Apple car or VR – or both? – might be the company’s next big things. B

ut a fresh report out of Asia indicates Apple might launch a whole new product next year, one that’s not related to the car or VR industries. Instead, we’re looking at a new Apple Watch flavor that might not be included in the Apple Watch family because of its sophisticated health features. More →

Apple Watch 2 said to feature a thinner display

According to a new report from Digitimes, the second-gen version of the Apple Watch will incorporate a display technology that should help make the device thinner than the original and perhaps free up some internal space for a slightly larger battery. Per touch panel maker and Apple component supplier TPK Holding, the Apple Watch 2 will utilize a One Glass Solution (OGS) for the display as opposed to the Glass on Glass solution currently used on the original.

These might be Google’s first Nexus smartwatches

A few days ago, a report said that Google is working on two Nexus-branded smartwatches that will come with Google Assistant support. Google apparently needs such devices to highlight remind everyone that Android Wear exists, and it’s a viable platform for wearable devices. After all, it’s not like anyone else is building hot Android Wear gadgets, ready to take advantage of the next-gen features of the wearable platform. The previous report did not include images showing these purported Nexus smartwatches, but the source is back with renders showing the wrist gadgets. More →
