The Apple Watch is the world’s most popular smartwatch and today, Apple is updating the operating system it runs on: watchOS. This is watchOS 4 and it focuses on making things easier for you with a brand new Siri watch face.
Even with the introduction of new smartwatches, Fitbit has shown resilience in the past few years maintaining the top spot in the wearable market. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case according to the latest report from Strategy Analytics.
Apple has taken over the number 1 spot and to rub salt into the wound, Fitbit is also overtaken by an affordable Chinese rival.
Fitbit is still struggling to launch its first proper smartwatch. Initially planned for this quarter’s release, the upcoming wearable has been delayed until later this year due to several issues which include GPS performance.
Now we get an early peek of Fitbit’s upcoming smartwatch thanks to Yahoo Finance and it looks like an evolution of its current Blaze fitness watch.
To me, fitness trackers should be as discrete as possible. The more comfortable and unobtrusive it is, the more likely I will wear it. So, when Fitbit launched the brand new Alta HR today, I was definitely looking forward to seeing if it could take the place of the Charge 2 on my wrist.
You would probably know by now that Pebble is officially dead after its acquisition by Fitbit. As a result, Pebble’s cloud services which are quite dependent on most Pebble users would eventually come to an end.
To ensure that all existing Pebble smartwatches would continue to tick in the foreseeable future, they have just released a new software update which allows you to use your smartwatch independently.
During the launch of the P10 series, Huawei Malaysia has also showcased its new Huawei Watch 2. Powered by the latest Android Wear 2.0, it supports standalone apps, Google Assistant and customisable watch faces.

Huawei wants to take centre stage at this year’s MWC event with the announcement of its new P10 flagship. This comes as a surprise as the Huawei P series is often launched in Q2 and their Huawei Mate 9 was launched just 3 months ago.
Despite the declining smart watch market, ZTE believes there’s still room for another player. Meet the ZTE Quartz, their first Android Wear smart watch which is expected to make its debut at MWC 2017.
