Samsung Gear Fit

20140225-110258.jpg
Outside of the Galaxy S5, our Samsung event was filled with people buzzing about the Gear Fit, Samsung’s new fitness tracker that has a curved AMOLED display. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around its design, but if anything, it has my attention. The Gear Fit can check your heart rate, allow you to answer or ignore calls, shows notifications as they come in, tracks steps taken and other fitness goals, is IP67 dust and water resistant, can control media, and even has changeable wallpapers. For a fitness band, it really is feature packed. The battery life seems questionable at 3-4 days, but that’s at least better than the original Galaxy Gear could say. Below, you’ll see Samsung take us on a quick tour of the device.

Qualcomm Toq

Qualcomm is slashing the price of its Toq smart watch from $349.99 to $249.99. That’s $100 off the original price, making the phone that much sweeter.

You can argue that Toq doesn’t have as many apps as Pebble does; but it rocks a color screen. That’s Mirasol baby, the power-saving display technology that keeps the Toq working for longer. There’s also the wireless charger included to make it easy to add extra juice to your Toq.

As for those apps, Qualcomm has recently released an SDK, so it’s now up for developers to bring their goodies to your wrist.

Again, the price is set at $249.99, and you can choose between black and white models. Check out the Toq from here.

Omate TrueSmart Smartwatch

Shortly after the Kickstarter project launched, many speculations arose surrounding the watches supposed support for Google Play. Omate has taken to their Kickstarter project page to let backers know that trouble lies ahead. You see, for a device to pass the Google Play Store’s CTS (Compatibility Test Suite), the device would have to have a screen with a minimum of 426 x 320 dp. The Omate TrueSmart Smartwatch 2.0 sports a screen that does not meet the minimum requirements, coming in at 240 x 240 dp.

Apple has completely revamped its iPad lineup. The 5th generation of the iPad is now called iPad Air, and is 20% slimmer than previous generations, replacing the thick and heavy iPad 4. The new iPad is also dramatically lighter, and weighs only 1 pound. It also has the same narrow bezel design as the iPad mini, making it easier to carry and more aesthetically pleasing.
The 2nd generation iPad mini meanwhile has finally been equipped with a Retina Display. Many have been asking for this feature, and Apple has delivered. It has a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels, making its image quality on par with competitors such as the Nexus 7 II.

Both the iPads have been given better computing power, the iPad Air and the Mini are both getting the 64-bit A7 processor and the M7 chip as well.

Both the iPad Air, and the 2nd generation iPad Mini will be available starting November 1st. The iPad Air, will start at $499, and the 2nd generation iPad Mini will start at $399. Meanwhile the iPad 2 will be priced at $399, while the 1st generation iPad Mini will be available for $299 .

At today’s media event in San Francisco, Apple debuted its much-anticipated fifth-generation iPad, re-named the iPad Air, which has been redesigned to resemble Apple’s thinner-bezeled iPad mini. With its narrower side bezels and a slimmer form factor, the iPad Air is significantly lighter and smaller than the fourth-generation iPad, weighing in at only one pound. The iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth-generation iPad.

Along with a redesigned chassis, the new iPad includes a 2048×1536 Retina display with a film-based sensor and an upgraded 64-bit A7 processor alongside the M7 motion coprocessor, plus a 5-megapixel rear iSight camera and a next generation FaceTime HD camera with improved backside illumination for better low-light performance. With the A7 chip, the iPad Air offers twice the CPU and graphics performance of the previous iPad. The 64-bit architecture supports Open GL ES version 3.0, for “game console-like visual effects.”
Available in white/silver and black/space gray, the iPad Air comes in both 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and LTE cellular models that feature two antennas to support Multiple-In-Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology, which offers twice the Wi-Fi performance and data rates up to 300Mbps. Cellular models also feature expanded LTE coverage for additional worldwide LTE networks. The iPad Air continues to offer up to 10 hours of battery life and is available in capacities ranging from 16 GB to 128 GB. U.S. Pricing remains the same as previous models, at $499/$599/$699/$799 for Wi-Fi versions, plus an additional $129 for comparable cellular versions. The iPad Air will be available on November 1 at 8 a.m. local time in the United States and more than 40 other countries in Europe and Asia. The iPad Air will replace the current full-sized fourth-generation iPad, but Apple will continue to sell the iPad 2 at $399 for the 16 GB model. Alongside the iPad Air, Apple has also announced new Smart Covers and cases designed to fit the smaller chassis.

Apple announced that it will be releasing OS X Mavericks today, as a free upgrade. OS X Mavericks boasts some new features and improvements including – Finder tabs and tags, Multiple Displays, new Maps and iBooks applications for OS X, and improvements to Notifications, Safari, and iCloud.

Apple also unveiled new versions of its iLife suite and iWork suite of apps for both iOS and OS X. All of them have been re-written to take advantage of 64-bit processing. Numbers, Keynote, Pages, iPhoto, Garageband and iMovie have all received a simpler look, on both iOS and OS X.

Both iLife and iCloud are free with the purchase of a new Mac or iOS device, and are avaliable today.
