Every day we are seeing more and more wearables, but wearable sales haven’t really exploded. Perhaps that’s because wearables are inherently personal, and so should look attractive. A wearable should hide technology, and shouldn’t look like a smart device.  Continue reading Fossil gives a glimpse at its Android Wear smartwatch

Android Wear Update- GPS Support and Offline Onboard Music Playback

Android Wear launched last year, and while it has seen more than its fair share of devices, the products in its line really haven’t gained much traction.

iFixit tears down the Moto 360: The Processor travels back in Time

moto 360 teardown1

Motorola’s Moto 360 is one of the most beautiful Wearables, and now that it has launched, aren’t you curious about what is inside it?

Fret not, iFixit has torn down the Moto 360 to pieces, to find out exactly what is under this exquisitely engineered piece of machinery. Underneath, instead of gears like a regular Watch, you would find the innards of a Smartphone.

Unlike the G Watch, which has a modern-era Snapdragon 400 Processor, the Moto 360 uses an ancient 2010-era TI OMAP 3630 Processor.

The other surprise is the Battery, which at 300mAh is lower than the advertised 320 mAH. Motorola says something about 300mAH being the minimum quantity and 320mAH being the typical quantity and that it didn’t get space to print both.

Here’s what Motorola is saying:

The typical battery capacity for Moto 360 is 320 mAh and the minimum is 300 mAh. In the mobile industry, sometimes both the minimum and typical capacity is listed on the battery, with the typical capacity quoted as the official battery size. Both figures are included on the batteries of our Moto X, Moto E and Moto G devices. In the case of smaller devices, we aren’t always able to list both figures. For Moto 360 we only had room for one figure and choose to list the minimal capacity of the battery. We see how this can be confusing and we will look into ways to add the typical capacity as well in the future.”

What do you think about Motorola’s decision to go with an ancient Processor for the Moto 360?
