How to clean your Android Wear watch

Scrub-a-dub-dub

You are a dirty, dirty person — we'll help you keep your smartwatch clean

When you put a watch on your wrist, you're exposing it to the outside world in a way that your phone or tablet never sees. Being on your wrist means it's out there, and it's going to get dirty. If you wear your new Android-powered watch in the pool or in the shower (especially the shower) you'll also get an extra-special layer of grunge and gunk where things lay against your skin. Anyone who wears a watch regularly knows what I mean, and if you are like me and only take off your Gear Live or G Watch to charge it, you'll soon need to clean it up.

The good news is that keeping things clean is pretty easy.

Lumsing Ultrathin Wireless Keyboard review

Lumsing Ultrathin Wireless Keyboard Android EVGA Tegra Note 7

Android tablet users have no shortage of keyboards from which to choose. If you own a highly popular tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, you could get a keyboard case made just for that model of tablet. But someone like me who owns the less widely known (but no less excellent) Tegra Note tablet will probably have to look to universal keyboards instead of device-specific ones.

Seeing as how the Tegra Note is a 7-inch tablet, I recently decided to check out one of the smaller keyboards around: the Lumsing Ultrathin Wireless Keyboard. Lumsing's keyboard is extremely small and thin and works great with Bluetooth-enabled Android, Windows, and iOS devices. If you need portability and compatibility in a keyboard, give this one a look.

This is how Minuum on Android Wear looks in real life

22

Minimalist keyboard crafter Minuum promised to bring Minuum to Android Wear, and they're ready to give the first glimpse of it actually in action. Previously we saw Minuum offer a concept of what their keyboard would look like on the Moto 360, but the currently-available LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live have square screens and don't need the arc-shaped layout. Plus they're also available, which made it much easier for Minuum to actually test their Android Wear keyboard in real life — as you can see above on the G Watch.
