Android Wear comes to iOS

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's happening Brian Tong here with the show currently known as Googlicious. We're back I don't know about you all, but this week feels like the Week of the Smart Watch with announcements and leaks galore. The Google-announced Androidware is now cross-platform with iPhone through the Androidware app on iOS. That's right, Android Smartwatches will work with your Apple iPhone. It officially only supports the LG watch [UNKNOWN] and watches moving forward right now, but come on! This is a big move and it's Android. They aren't gonna lock everyone out like Apple does. Now that;s where users on the interwebs come in and they tried out their watches like the LG G watch R and the Moto 360. And with a quick factory reset, these watches and others currently work with the new iOS Android wear app, but unofficially. So you can try this out, but just a heads up it's not technically supported. Now Apple watches still aren't flying off the shelves, and this is another smart move by Google and friend. We also talked about the new Moto 360 last episode, and if there's an award for one of tech's worst kep secrets, this might be it right now. We know how Motorola made a boo-boo tweet a couple of weeks ago, and Brazil's FCC revealed there might be two models. Now it's HelloMoto HK. Has leaked the first images of the two different sizes for the 360L and the 360S watch faces side by side that feature the same leaked design we've seen. Evleaks is also back at it, releasing an image of the two different color designs we can expect to see and new renders from website Upleaks have now revealed a sport variant of the new Moto 360 featuring black, white and orange as its primary colors. The standard watch design is expected to be available in September and the sport version Is expected to arrive in November, but we'll hear plenty more about this at IFA 2015 in Berlin. But what might be the Android watch to look out for this year? Forget about Android. How about the best-looking smart watch to date? period. It's the Huawei watch we saw at Mobile World Congress. Now, the Amazon pages have been pulled down now. But it's been revealed the watch will come in four variants, based on color and material, ranging from stainless steel with a leather band Starting at $349, and high as $699 for an all gold-plated stainless steel version. A deleted wallway tweet also pointed to a September 2nd announcement with a curious iOS compatibility that might have been foreshadowing the recent Android Wear app announcement. So again Stay tuned to [UNKNOWN]. And I know there are still remnants of blackberry loyalists that are hoping somehow someway the company can dig itself out of the ground and give you all something to look forward to. Well this could be it. After detailed leaked images of the often rumored Venice phone I made it to the web detailing it's slide out physical keyboard that looks nicely executed from the pictures. You also see this includes both a SIM card slot and a SD card slot for expansion. Images of the camera point to an 18 megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation. The phone looks to be running Android and might come with some sort of blackberry skin but we'll wait and see. And really. The might by the phone that came out three years too late, but it's unique enough and I'm curious. But, if you're really curious and you want to see what happens when you put your brand new Galaxy Note 5 stylus backwards, don't do it. We didn't get to talk about this because we were gone last week, but videos everywhere Showed off how accidentally putting in the S pen offers no resistance at all, but could also end up jamming in the phone and also cause it to break pen detection once that happens. And you can see this happening if a kid got a hold of your phone or if you're in a rush. You might even do this yourself. It's clearly a design flaw. But what's Samsung's response? We highly recommend our Galaxy Note 5 users to follow the instructions in the user guide To ensure there are no issues. Basically they're saying, you're sticking it in wrong. And you know what this deserves? C'mon Sung. Seriously. This is a flaw and they aren't going to figure it out in any kind of fix or create a way to prevent this. There answer is just read the manual. Yikes. All right that's going to do it for this week's show. Keep emailing us at googlicious@cnet.com. Or tweet me @briantong. Thanks for watching and we'll see you next time for some more of that Googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious.
