150301-huawei-watch-promo-videos-official

It appeared early on an airport ad and now the Huawei Watch is officially revealed (sort of) in a couple of new promo video ads. The first video is basically an promo ad which showcases the watch in action. It clearly shows the Huawei Watch running on Android Wear and it has a built-in heart rate tracker as well.

Huawei has also shared a design story in their next video where it highlights its focus on creating a smart watch that has a premium timeless look while offering smart features when you need it. The video is quite fluffy and you can tell most of the participants are paid actors. Videos aside, the Huawei Watch looks like a serious contender against the Moto 360 and even the LG Urbane. The last wearable device they had was the TalkBand B1 which launched during last year’s MWC. Apart from the new Watch, Huawei is expected to released a couple of more wearables that would join the TalkBand line of hybrid bluetooth headset products.

We are in Barcelona for MWC 2015 so stay tuned for our hands-on with the latest wearables. Watch the videos after the break.

HTC One M9 leaked and compared with previous Ones

150301-htc-one-m9-hands-on-leaked

As we get closer to HTC’s new flagship launch, the HTC One M9 has finally leaked in a hands-on video. Now we can confirm that the speculation of a different design isn’t true and it matches the alleged official press photos that we’ve seen earlier.

The main noticeable difference is on the sides, where it gets a dual-tone metal frame and the power button is now moved to the right below the individual up and down volume buttons. Meanwhile, the back retains a similar brushed metal look but it gets a single 20MP main camera instead of a duo camera set up on the One M8. The dual-tone LED flash has been retained as well. For selfies, the same old 4MP Ultra-Pixel that debut on the One M7 has been moved to the front.

Moto 360 now available in Malaysia

Posted:  February 28, 2015   By:    6 comments   

20150228-Moto-260-DirectD-s

Motorola’s Moto 360, the best selling Android Wear device at the moment — is now available in Malaysia. Available from retailer DirectD, the Moto 360 comes with a one year Brightstar warranty for RM899.

The Moto 360 raised to prominence thanks to its circular design. The wearable paved the way for a new format of smartwatches that feature a circular watch face that harks back to traditional mechanical watches. It was unique when it was first launched because of this and it represents a breakthrough in smartwatch design overcoming inherent engineering and software challenges in the smartwatch industry that has been designed for square or rectangle screens.

Powered by Google’s Android Wear, the Moto 360 gives you access not only to notifications and alerts but access to navigation information and Google Now voice commands directly from your wrist.

Full details on the Moto 360 from DirectD here.

These Apple Watch ads are stunning to look at

Posted:  February 28, 2015   By:    No comments   

20150228-apple-watch-hero

Apple wants you to see the Apple Watch not as a smartwatch. Instead Apple wants you to see the Apple Watch as a fine piece of jewelry, a high fashion item. Just take a look at these pages taken from the the March issue of Vogue and you will know what we mean.

The 12-page spread is said to cost Apple “north of US$2.2 million” and it features all three versions of the soon to be released Apple Watch. This includes the ultra-chic 18-karat gold luxe edition, a rubber-strapped and brightly coloured sports edition and the leather-bound standard edition.

True to Apple style, the ad pages look appropriately stylish that resemble jewelry advertising more that an ad for a smartwatch, and perhaps it needs to be for Apple to really differentiate its wearable over the many others that are available in the market right now.

But is the Apple Watch a wearable the focuses too much on form that it sacrifices function? Or can it offer much more than just a stylish design?

Huawei will be launching a smart watch at MWC 2015. Before the covers are off, the new smart watch has already appeared in an advertisement on display at Barcelona Airport.

The ad, which was spotted by Android Central shows a round display similar to LG’s G Watch R and Urbane. A total of 3 colour options are shown – Silver, Gold and Black, each with a different band material. The hero product which is shown above features a metal strap that looks similar to Apple Watch‘s Milanese Loop option.

Highly detailed renderings give us a very good look at the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge?

Posted:  February 28, 2015   By:    3 comments   

20150228-S6-Edge-Render-1-s

CNet Korea has obtained what looks like highly detailed rendering of the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge based on actual specifications of the device. The renders gives us a highly detailed look at what is Samsung’s most important smartphone in recent times.

If the information used to create these renders are real, the Galaxy S6 Edge looks to be a very sleek device with the dual edge screen giving it a ultra-cool factor. It will be interesting to see what new features Samsung will incorporate into the new user interface to make the most out of the dual edge screen.

The render suggests that the S6 Edge will feature a unibody design instead of the two-piece construction that is a trademark of almost all Samsung devices currently available in the market. The unibody design offers the additional benefit of being robust and strong but it will also mean that the S6 will not have a removable battery like previous other Samsung smartphones.

The render also shows a rear camera that protrudes out of the back panel it an attempt to make the device as thin as possible. In my opinion, this is an unnecessary trade-off as I would rather have a camera that sits flush with the back panel rather than one that protrudes as seen in the render because a protruding camera exposes itself to nicks and scratches. A slightly thicker device is anytime better than having scratches on the lens of the device.

Whether these renders are the real deal or not, everything will be revealed on March 1 and we will be at the launch event to give you the latest updates, so stay tuned. In the meantime, head on over to after the jump for more renders of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

PornHub’s new wearable lets you juice your phone with…manpower

Posted:  February 27, 2015   By:    1 comment   

wankband

It was only a matter of time before someone decided to make a wearable that produces and stores energy via kinetic motion, but the last people we thought would be the ones to do it is PornHub.

Produced by the rather ambitious porn tube site, this unisex product is called The Wankband, and apparently has the novel ability to save on energy by generating “Dirty Power” which then can be used to charge other devices via a USB port. You can pretty much guess the kind of “motion” they’re referring to that lets the band generate all that power, thought it would make sense that a runner would be also able to generate the same sort of power on a jog.

We have no clue if they are actually being serious about this product because it just sounds too good to be true, but they’re apparently looking for beta testers right now. All you need to do is contact them with interest to test out the band, though you are going to need to get creative in accessing the site from our end.

Anyone want to lend them a hand?

Flashback anti-paparazzi clothing ruins flash photgraphs

Posted:  February 27, 2015   By:    No comments   

betabrand1

DJ Chris Holmes recently developed a line clothes that are “anti-paparazzi” that ruins flash photographs at night by reflecting excessive amounts of light. The “Flashback” line of apparel as it is called is a partially crowdfunded project which hopefully will be bringing the actual articles of clothing to the market.

Each piece of clothing looks like an ordinary pieces of gray clothing under normal lighting but the material is actually coated with millions of tiny “glass nanospheres” that causes the material to reflect tremendous amounts of light back at camera sensors to create terribly underexposed images.
