It seems that Apple was holding out during its June WWDC conference. As reported in Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter, Apple will launch a “deluge” of ambitious new products in late 2022 and early 2023. These new products include a mixed reality headset, new “core” devices,’ and revamped versions of the Apple TV, Apple Watch, AirPods Pro, and HomePod.
Believe it or not, but some people don’t want to wear a giant screen on their wrist (and charge it every night). That’s why Fossil sells hybrid smartwatches that combine analog style with smart health-tracking features. And the all-new Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid hides some very fun features.
After a boring year of Android smartwatches, it seems that Google’s new Wear OS 3 is finally catching on. Montblanc just announced the Summit 3, the first non-Samsung smartwatch to support Wear OS 3. It launches July 15th for an outrageous $1,290.
We already know Meta (previously Facebook) plans to release its latest Meta Quest Pro VR headset later this year. In the meantime, CEO Mark Zuckerberg is giving the world a rare look at several neat prototypes the company is busy testing out.
The United States Food and Drug Administration just cleared StrivePD, an app that tracks and detects Parkinson’s symptoms using Apple’s Movement Disorder API. Rune Labs, the company behind this app, hopes that it will accelerate Parkinson’s research and improve the lives of patients.
It seems like Facebook (now called Meta) just can’t catch a break. Declining ad revenue and a shrinking user base have forced the company to pursue a custom hardware ecosystem—smart products and mixed reality devices that it can control on its own terms. But for whatever reason, Facebook appears to be scaling back these hardware projects.
This week at Apple’s annual WWDC event, the company announced watchOS 9 with several changes and new features. And while Apple didn’t mention the Watch Series 3 specifically, its cheapest watch will not support the next update, meaning it’s reaching the end of its life.
We’re about halfway through 2022, which means that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 should launch soon. Naturally, tons of leaks and rumors are floating around, and much of this unverified info focuses on potential design changes—including one that may ruffle a few feathers.
People are really overestimating the Pixel Watch’s capabilities, likely because it’s backed by several years of rumors and hype. And while we don’t really know all of the Pixel Watch’s specs, it probably doesn’t have a crazy battery life. Yeah, I’m making an educated guess, but it’s backed by a recent 9to5Google report.
While rumors of Apple’s AR and VR “mixed reality” headset have been floating around for years, it sounds like things are starting to heat up. Last week, Apple reportedly showed its board of directors the next-gen headset, signaling a release could be near.
