Hackers can steal your ATM pin from your smartwatch or fitness tracker

A recent study from Binghamton University also suggests your smartwatch or fitness tracker is not as secure as you think – and it could be used to steal your ATM PIN code.

The risk lies in the motion sensors used by these wearable devices. The sensors also collect information about your hand movements among other data, making it possible for "attackers to reproduce the trajectories" of your hand and "recover secret key entries."

Apple Watch help save teen's life

Having suffered chest and back pain following a football training session, Massachusetts resident Paul Houle used his Apple Watch to keep tabs on his heart rate.

With the wearable revealing his vital signs remained at an alarmingly high 145bpm for two hours after practice, Houle went to hospital where he was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis - a condition triggered by exercise that can cause muscles to deteriorate and seep proteins.

Omate's new smartwatch makes phone calls

The TrueSmart+ comes with WiFi, 2G, 3G and a SIM card slot to handle all of your communication needs on its 320x320-resolution 1.54-inch screen.

The wearable will be released in October or November priced at $169 (£109) and will arrive on the market alongside the budget-friendly TrueSmart-i.

The $149 (£96) TrueSmart-i takes things down a notch with Android 4.4 on board and a 240x240 display, but comes with the same screen size and rubber straps.

Samsung seek piece of nascent smartwatch market

Apple Watch was the leading smartwatch in the second quarter, with an estimated 4 million shipped worldwide, for a market share of more than 75 percent, according to Strategy Analytics. Samsung was a distant second with 400,000 shipped and a 7.5 percent market share.

However, the market is still nascent, and Apple Watch isn't an option for people who use Android smartphones.

Samsung's Gear S2 will work on Android - and for the first time, not just Samsung's Android phones. Meanwhile, watches running Google's Android Wear software will now work with Apple's iPhones.
