canyon bikeWhen you think of Android Wear, your mind probably thinks of smartwatches. This is because unlike smartphones or tablets, smartwatches have screens that are too small for regular Android to function properly, which has made Google create alternatives such as Android Wear. That being said, if you’re looking to make your bike “smarter”, Canyon might have something for you.

The company, together with a partnership with Sony, has announced a new computer designed for your bicycle that will rely on Android Wear for its computing needs. It will reportedly be able to track all sorts of things during your ride, like the distance you have travelled, elevation gains/drops, speed, path tracking, navigation via Google Maps, and also the ability to work with third-party apps such as Strava.

lumia_950_xlNow some of you guys might have heard us report on devices like the Lumia 940, Lumia 940 XL, Lumia 950, and the Lumia 950 XL. The specs of these devices are similar which has created some confusion, but a recent tweet by @evleaks has cleared it up. According to him, Microsoft’s Lumia flagship will be officially branded as the Lumia 950, not the Lumia 940.

Like we said, both model numbers have been tossed around before and we have to admit we ourselves were just as confused, so hopefully this makes it clearer now. Of course it is still a rumor as Microsoft has yet to confirm it, so take it with a grain of salt for now, but given @evleaks’ track record, there might be some truth to his claims.

scosche-boombottle-plusIf you love cycling outdoors and want to listen to music, there aren’t many options that are designed specifically for cyclists in mind. You could buy mounts to hook up speakers to your handlebars, or you could wear earphones which is admittedly a tad dangerous since you need to be able to hear oncoming traffic.

However Scosche is here to the rescue with the BoomBottle+. As you can see from the photos, the BoomBottle+ has been designed for cyclists in mind as its shape will fit the bottle holder on most bicycles with each. Of course this means having to sacrifice your bottle of water, but if you’re carrying a bag you could always put your water in there.

LG_WATCH_URBANE_LIFESTYLE_01As far as a “new” smartwatch from LG is concerned, it is probably the LG Watch Urbane Luxe that was announced several days ago. This is basically the LG Watch Urbane made with 23-karat gold and with a heftier price tag, but according to the folks at Android Police, it seems that LG has a newer smartwatch in the works.

According to their sources, they have been tipped that LG will announce the device towards the end of the month, which is a bit odd given that IFA would have been a perfect opportunity to show it off. Not much is known about the watch right now, except that it will sport a circular face and will feature two additional buttons, meaning that in total the upcoming watch will have three buttons.
