Google is rumoured to be working on a Google Now-focused smartwatch called 'Gem' which experts claim could finally make smartwatches 'intelligent.'
The Samsung Gear includes phone connectivity and apps, whereas the Pebble offers phone notifications at a lower price, but industry experts say that none of the current crop of smartwatches offer a truly 'smart' experience.
This leaves the door wide open for something that multiple sources are murmuring about: a Google Now-powered wearable.
According to Juniper Research, "smart wearables", which includes smartwatches and glasses, will have raked in $1.4bn during 2013, rising to $19bn by 2018. That's more than 50% annual growth, making the segment a lucrative addition to the smartphone and connected devices category.
Shares in video games firm Ubisoft have plummeted by 26% after it delayed the release of two much-anticipated titles.
Hacker-themed Watch Dogs and open-world racing game The Crew have both been postponed until the publisher's next financial year, which begins in April.
The company said it wanted to allow its developers to fine tune their work.
Retailers, including Amazon and Gamestop, have assured consumers who had pre-ordered bundles including both the Chicago-based title and one of the games consoles that they will still receive the machine on the day they had been quoted.
The Crew had originally been due out some time in the first three months of 2014.
EE has slashed the price of its cheapest 4G contract as it aims to maintain its edge over rivals in the race to attract subscribers to the new mobile broadband infrastructure.
The move will put pressure on O2 and Vodafone to cut the prices of their new 4G services.
The company has put 4G at the forefront of its strategy as its French and German owners prepare for a possible flotation or sale.
The American telecoms giant AT&T has said it plans to buy European assets and has been linked with EE, which also still operates the Orange and T-Mobile brands for 3G services.
The network's new lowest priced tariff costs £18.99 per month including a handset, down from £26. It massivley undercuts O2 and Vodafone, who began switching on their 4G networks at the end of August and charge £32 per month and £34 for their cheapest package including a handset, although both offer more inclusive data than EE.
EE also prepared for the launch of Three's 4G network later this year, which will be provided at no extra cost to 3G customers, by announcing Britain's first pay-as-you-go 4G service.
