Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung’s Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Icon X are all variations of designs we’ve seen before. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung’s outdoor smartwatch I reviewed last year.

With MIL-STD 810G durability and 5ATM water resistance the Gear Sport  [Read More…]

It looks like the pivot isn’t going well.

Back in March of last year, Google announced a Bay Area only test of a service called Hands Free. It was an alternative payment solution for people who thought taking their phone or wallet out of their pocket was a lot of work.
