And finally time, which means it’s time to catch up on the best of the wearable rumours and smaller stories that you may have missed this week.
We’ve got talk about the next Apple Watch, Nike’s supposed smartglasses plans and some good news for Android Wear smartwatch owners.
These are the wearable news tidbits of the past seven days that you need to catch up on.
Apple Watch Series 4 to get a speed boost and maybe more
Now Apple’s smartwatches are by no means slouches on the performance front, but the latest report suggests big changes are afoot in the components department that could be a big deal for the next Apple Watch.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple is planning to introduce new circuit boards across its product range in 2018 and that will include the company’s next smartwatch.
While it might not sound like the most exciting reveal of what we could expect from Apple’s new smartwatch, it will allow the folks at Cupertino to ramp up performance speed and save on internal space, which could free up room for more interesting sensors and other technologies to deliver a more feature-packed Watch.
Nike looking at golf smart specs
Aside from partnering up with Apple for the Nike+ editions of its smartwatch, Nike hasn’t been in the wearable hardware game since the Fuelband. But if a recent patent is to be believed it could be planning a return with a heads-up display designed for golfers.
The patent filing suggests the sports apparel giant is considering a wearable that looks like a pair of sunglasses and features an electronic screen and transparent display. The specs will apparently offer ball tracking so you can see when it’s veered off course and goes flying into the trees.
Tasty Oreo comes to Android Wear
Google has been busy rolling out its Oreo software update to its army of Android smartphones and the latest dessert-named instalment looks like it’s heading to Android Wear watches as well.
The Oreo Android Wear update has apparently been spotted on the LG Watch Sport and while you shouldn’t expect any major changes, it is adding some nice little features like the ability to adjust vibration strength for notifications and the addition of a new touch lock so your watch screen doesn’t turn on when a bit of rain drops on it.
Amazfit Pace 2 is coming
Xiaomi Mi Band-makers Huami have been trying to make a name for itself with its Amazfit range and it looks like it could be prepping to launch its next sporty smartwatch.
The company shared news on Weibo of an Amazfit smart sports watch 2, which could well be the successor to the Amazfit Pace. The first Pace was a running-focused device with built-in GPS/GLONASS, an optical heart rate monitor and a GPS battery life of up to 36 hours. Hopefully there’ll be a bunch of new features to look forward to and it’ll still be as affordable as the current model.
