Briefly: Best Buy LG G Watch price cut, WhatsApp Android Wear support

updated 07:06 am EDT, Mon September 1, 2014

Best Buy discounts LG G Watch price by $50

Best Buy has cut the price of the LG G Watch by $50. One of the first Android Wear smartwatches revealed and released, recently superseded by the G Watch R, has been spotted by Android Police priced at $180 for both the black and white models. Despite the discount, it is likely the G Watch will continue to be sold for some time, most likely as a budget option compared to the round-faced stablemate's estimated $300 price tag.



WhatsApp adds Android Wear support to Android app

WhatsApp has enabled support for Android Wear devices. Ubergizmo reports that the Facebook-owned messaging service has taken the smartwatch support out of beta and into the main Google Play release. The update allows for entire messages to be displayed on the smartwatch screen, with the names of the sending participant being shown in grouped messages, along with stacked notifications to show more than one received message. Messages can also be responded to, though currently only via voice.
