Last year, Google announced Android Wear, an operating system for smartwatches and other wearable gadgets. For its ambitious project, the company roped in popular hardware manufacturers including Intel, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung, HTC, ASUS, LG, Broadcom and others. One year later, what was destined to set the tone for smartwatches, a step up from rival Pebble, and conquer the nascent market even before Apple had a chance, only a handful of companies have shown trust in Android Wear so far, and the number instead of going up has dipped. What is wrong with Android Wear? More →

Is Apple Watch the reason the Pebble Time is pre-selling three months before its launch?
