There are a slew of smartwatches hitting the market. Some are more impressive than others. The LG G Watch has some really awesome features and does support Android Wear.
One of the really nice features is that it’s water resistant and has an always-on display. This means that if you wash your dishes while wearing your watch, you don’t have to freak out and wonder if it’s going to stop working. Keep in mind that water resistant isn’t waterproof. Samsungs Gear 2 is submersible to 1 meter for a duration of 30 minutes.
It also has an always-on display which means you won’t have to ‘wake’ the device every single time that you look at it. The device will come in stealth black and champagne gold. The always-on display brings to question battery life, which has been an issue in all smartwatches to date.
LG has yet to announce the price for the G Watch and is keeping the release date under wraps as well. A source says that it will retail for $300 and start shipping in July, but that date has not been confirmed.
So, get ready for yet another voice controlled smartwatch that runs on the Android Wear platform.
In today’s times it’s important to keep your information safe and secure. With the release of smartphones and other handheld devices, that information might be vulnerable and we don’t even realize it. Here are a few things you can do to keep your mobile device secure.
Use Grab Prevention Technology
You can use ‘Grab Prevention’ technology which is normally a combination of an app and a device, which in most cases fits on a keychain. Then if someone picks up your phone or it gets more than a preset distance from the keychain, an alarm will sound or some other protection will be activated. You can set these to simply lock the phone screen, locate the phone through GPS, or sound an alarm.
Protect Your Lock Screen
It may seem like a pain, having to pass lockscreen protection, but it really can make a device more safe and even less desirable to a thief. There are many different options on both iOS, Android, and Blackberry devices to protect your lock screen. You can use the password feature, a swip feature in which the user must match a predetermined pattern, and even facial recognition.
Use Find/Lock/Wipe Features
All smartphones have built in functionality that allow users to “try” to locate their phone if it’s locked or stolen. These settings allow you to ring the phone, track via GPS, and even remotely erase all the data in the case of a phone that has been stolen. They may get your phone, but at least they don’t get access to your information.
Protect your phone from people who might want to not only steal the device, but your sensitive information.
