Google Glass 2 coming 2016

The second iteration of smart glasses from Google will arrive in 2016, but unfortunately it won't be for public amusement according to Slash Gear. The Google Glass Enterprise Edition will be apparently be aimed towards businesses that use the Android for Work program. How fun.

There are purportedly two improvements over the first Google Glass; a larger battery to be kept in the users pocket and attached via a wire to the glasses and a Wi-Fi connection, which will be boosted from 2.4GHz up to 5GHz.

Microsoft Band 2 incoming

Microsoft chief operating officer Kevin Turner, speaking during the company's Worldwide Partner Conference, confirmed that Microsoft is working on a second iteration of its fitness tracker.

We weren't exactly enamoured with Microsoft's first effort - take a look at ourMicrosoft Band review to find out why. The sequel is expected to address the failings of the original. Making it actually wearable would be a good start.

Cooling clothing helps weight-loss

Thin Ice is a clothing line on Indiegogo that uses targeted cooling to trick your body's metabolism into working harder and thus burning extra calories.

You can pick up both the vest and the insole for $75 each, half the price of the RRP. Your kind of thing? Read about the best gym wearables and othercrowdfunding projects.

Turkish smartwatch goes live

TeknoSA, a tech chain store in Turkey, is releasing the Pwatch; offering distance, step and sleep tracking, as well as measuring calories burned, body mass index and even give a chance to prepare a diet program for you.

Aimed at people wanting a healthy lifestyle, the smartwatch straps will come in a variety of colours and will retail for 99 Turkish Lira ($40). The style, features and pricing hints towards this being more of a fitness tracker than a smartwatch. It looks a lot like the Fitbit Charge HR, don't you think.
