Bottom line: The Huawei Mate Xs 2 features an impressive-looking 120Hz display that can fold outwards. However, this design makes it more susceptible to screen damage than other foldable phones. It unfortunately also misses out on 5G connectivity, something way cheaper phones include. In a livestream today, Huawei announced the global availability of their newest flagship foldable smartphone and a multitude of wearables. The company first launched these devices in China earlier this year, but now they're coming to western markets, starting with Europe. The Mate Xs 2 is Huawei's first new foldable since the P50 Pocket . It packs a massive 7.8-inch OLED screen (2480 x 2200 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate) that folds outwards, unlike competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3. When folded up, it reduces to a more narrow 6.5-inch display, allowing for easier one-handed use. The device is powered by Qualcomm's last-gen Snapdragon 888 4G, as Huawei isn't allowed to … [Read more...] about Huawei launches gorgeous-looking Mate Xs 2 foldable phone for €1,999
L'Amazfit T-Rex 2 a été officiellement dévoilée : une montre GPS robuste et durable conçue pour les aventuriers, car dotée d'outils de navigation et d'une " autonomie ultra-longue ". La montre paraît idéale pour " les randonneurs, les alpinistes, les arpenteurs de sentiers et les aventuriers qui souhaitent explorer des terrains inconnus grâce à ses fonctions de navigation en temps réel ". Elle se veut apparemment extrêmement résistante, ayant été testée à des températures aussi basses que -30°C et aussi élevées que +70°C. L'Amazfit T-Rex Pro, le modèle précédent de la gamme, était dépourvu de ces outils de navigation, et de ce fait elle obtient un avis défavorable par rapport à ses rivales Garmin. Elle s’équipe d'un altimètre barométrique, d'une boussole et prend en charge le positionnement à double bande ainsi que cinq réseaux satellitaires. Avec une résistance à l'eau poussant jusqu'à 100 mètres et l'accent mis sur sa durabilité, l'Amazfit T-Rex 2 se positionne … [Read more...] about La nouvelle Amazfit T-Rex 2 peut-elle faire de l’ombre aux dernières montres Garmin ?
Audio player loading… Sports tech company Garmin is adding a much-needed camera to its Varia line of bicycle radar and tail lights. It’s called the Varia RCT715 and houses a 1080p camera that shoots at 30 fps. The device features Automatic Incident Capture that ensures it continues recording “before, during, and after” an accident. So as you can imagine, the RCT715 is a pretty sturdy device. It has a water resistance rating of IPX7 which means it can survive submerged up to one meter of water for a maximum time of 30 minutes. However, the Varia RCT715 offers no protection against dust or sand. When turned on, the Varia camera will record continuously and save the footage to the Varia app . You can then transfer that footage to your at-home computer or smartphone. The app will even alert you if the rear camera detects a car getting too close behind you (assuming you have your phone clamped to your bike and viewable while you ride). The RCT715 is also … [Read more...] about Garmin’s new rear camera watches your back while you ride your bike
Audio player loading… Casio G-Shock has revamped its digital G-SQUAD running watch and G-LIDE surf watch lines with brand new looks. The newest additions to the G-SQUAD line, or the GBD-200 series to use its less catchy name, come in new gray (200UU-9, pictured above) and black (200UU-1, pictured below) colorways. The GBD-200 series are digital fitness watches that do offer Bluetooth connectivity to the G-Shock Move app, without being a fully-fledged smartwatch. It's engineered to track your steps and running pace, times and calories burned, as well as interval workouts. However, it doesn't offer sleep tracking, constant heart rate updates, or notifications: it's a slimmed-down experience for runners who don't want to feel constantly connected or prefer an old-school-cool aesthetic, rather than the flat black screen of a smartwatch on their wrists. It's also packing a huge seven-year battery life, combined with G-Shock's legendary durability with mineral glass, … [Read more...] about Watch out Fitbit: these new-look affordable G-Shocks might make digital watches cool again
Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 is one of the best smartwatches around, but unlike every other Wear OS device, it didn’t have Google Assistant. Now that has finally changed. Samsung revealed earlier this week that Google Assistant was finally rolling out to the Galaxy Watch 4, which has only had Samsung’s Bixby virtual assistant since the watch was released last year. The good news is that it’s showing up on watches automatically without the need to do anything — in my case, the Assistant icon appeared at the bottom of my watch’s app list, and tapping it started the setup process. If you don’t see Google Assistant yet, Droid Life pointed out you can force the installation by opening the Play Store app listing for “Google Assistant for wearables,” and then choosing your watch as the target device. Much easier than the process for installing Google Assistant on Samsung’s older Tizen-powered Galaxy Watches , which was also an unofficial version. By default, holding down the home … [Read more...] about Here’s How to Get Google Assistant on the Galaxy Watch 4
