Several Android Wear devices expected at IFA


A report out of CNET today claims that there will be a wave of new Android Wear devices unveiled at IFA in a few short weeks. This isn’t particularly surprising news since we have been waiting on new wearables from Motorola and Huawei for quite some time. The CNET report claims that in addition to Motorola and Huawei, we will see new Wear devices from ASUS and LG as well.


The 2nd generation Moto 360 is definitely the most frequently leaked of the upcoming wearables. We’ve already seen the watch pass through the FCC, and this past weekend several Motorola employees were seen flaunting the watch around Chicago. The Huawei Watch was originally announced back at MWC in February and it has been a long wait since then. We have seen a few leaks of the watch which show a high-end design and packaging consistent with a high-end timepiece. In terms of ASUS and LG, we don’t really know what to expect from them. ASUS already announced the ZenWatch 2 earlier this year in Taiwan, but perhaps now is the time to announce the availability and final pricing for the device. We haven’t heard much from LG on the wearable front since the launch of the Watch Urbane, but perhaps they have a few more tricks up their sleeve.

In addition to the new crop of Android Wear devices, Samsung will fully reveal their Galaxy Gear S2 smartwatch based on Tizen at IFA. It seems that IFA will be full of wearables this year, pretty fitting considering it has been a slow year for Android Wear releases.

Which smartwatch are you looking forward to most?

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
