Tech companies have spent the last decade working on smart glasses with integrated display technology. So when Facebook launched Ray-Ban Stories last week, people were understandably disappointed by its rather simplistic design. Now, Xiaomi is taking the opportunity to show off its smart glasses, which look much more advanced than Facebook’s product.
Fitbit began testing a snore-tracking feature earlier this year, and it’s finally rolling out to Sense and Versa 3 watches. The new feature could help you figure out why you’re snoring so much, but you need to enable it manually, as it comes with a few downsides.
Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 13 event took place on Tuesday, and we have tons of information to share. Apple kicked off its fall “California Streaming” show by immediately debuting an all-new and bigger iPad Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and more, but surprisingly, there are no new AirPods.
In Apple’s recent live event, it announced a slew of fun new gadgets and software updates, including the new Apple Watch Series 7. The smartwatch has an updated design that includes a larger display, new watchfaces, and a few other extras.
Remember when Mark Zuckerberg revealed his “metaverse” concept a few months back? The Facebook CEO imagines a future where social media weaves itself into the real world through wearable technology, eliminating the barrier created by phones. But the “metaverse” isn’t just some dorky idea for the future—it’s Mark Zuckerberg’s idealized business landscape. Ready or not, we’re seeing that landscape take shape with today’s launch of Ray-Ban Stories.
Whoop unveiled its next generation fitness/recovery tracker today, and it’s the company’s biggest update in its short history. The Whoop 4.0 brings more sensors, improved accuracy, better bands, and a whole lot more—all in a smaller package. Let’s dig in.
Facebook and Ray-Ban plan to reveal (or release) their collaborative smart glasses on September 9th and are already offering email updates to interested customers. While these Ray-Ban smart glasses probably lack any mixed reality features, new videos from Zuckerberg suggest that they could replace your GoPro.
A new report from The Information suggests that Apple’s first AR (or mixed reality) headset will rely on an iPhone for most of its heavy-duty processes. The headset could arrive as early as 2022, and while it contains both a CPU and GPU, these components only exist to manage battery life and handle processes that don’t work well over a wireless connection.
This year’s Apple Watch may sport a radical new design, but is that enough to justify a purchase? As reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Apple Watch Series 7 won’t pack any new health sensors, though it will feature a larger display, flat edges, and an upgraded processor.
Fossil just opened pre-orders for its new Gen 6 smartwatch, one of the only non-Samsung wearables that will actually support Google’s landmark Wear OS 3 update. With its cutting-edge Snapdragon 4100+ processor, upgraded display, and unique battery features, the Fossil Gen 6 looks light a bright spot in an otherwise underwhelming Android smartwatch market, especially if you want to avoid all of the proprietary software on Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4.
