Google Fit update finally brings strength training feature to all Android Wear 2.0 watches

Added: 24.04.2017 20:22 | 2 views | 0 comments

Whether you have a new Android Wear 2.0 watch or a first-gen model that just received an update, they’re about to get a lot more buffed. We already know the new Google Fit app brings a bunch of new trackers and motivators for workout buffs, but in the latest update, Google is finally turning on the best new feature.
Back when we reviewed the and watches, we noted a strange difference between them regarding one of Google Fit’s better features. On the Sport, we were able to activate Strength Training, which used the watch’s sensors to automatically track what we were doing (situps, weight lifting, etc.) and count our reps. But on the Style that option wasn’t present, and we couldn’t figure out why.


ZTE's Quartz smartwatch: A good idea hindered by its OS

Added: 24.04.2017 18:41 | 1 views | 0 comments

ZTE's Quartz smartwatch is the Chinese phone maker's first attempt at breaching what's quickly becoming a saturated U.S. smartwatch market. Two of the watch's most promising features are its ability to be used without a phone and its affordability. But how do these promises stand up to the test? I tried it out for myself. 

3G Connectivity may not be as useful as you think 

To begin with, I must point out that a lot of the issues I had while using the ZTE Quartz were not necessarily issues arising from the watch itself, but rather from its OS, Android Wear 2.0, and limitations on the T-Mobile network. 
Quartz comes with 3G support from T-Mobile, as well as WiFi, and a built-in speaker, which means that you should be able to make and take calls without your phone. During testing, calls from the watch worked fine, and I was actually pleasantly surprised by the volume of the speaker, but there's a big caveat: You have to have two different numbers for your phone and for your watch.

Notion Home Awareness Starter Kit review: Smarter sensors, but limited control

Added: 24.04.2017 12:50 | 1 views | 0 comments

Don’t call it a security system: Notion is a “home awareness kit” that offers a somewhat different value proposition. Like a standard DIY security setup, Notion is built around a wireless hub and sensors that you place around your house. The wall-wart hub is fully wireless and requires no hardwired ethernet connection to your router. Just plug the hub into any power outlet and run through a few quick steps in Notion’s iOS or Android app and you’re ready to start placing sensors. Notion is sold in two bundles, with either three sensors or five. Add-on sensors are $49 a pop.
There’s just one type of sensor—a little hockey puck a bit larger than a Double Stuf Oreo cookie—and that’s by design. Rather than building different sensors for different applications, Notion’s single sensor does everything. One sensor can detect position changes (doors or windows opening or closing), temperature fluctuations, water leaks, light, noise, and more. A single sensor can serve multiple needs at the same time.
