Although the wearables market has been noticeably having a hard time in the United States mobile market, it is actually doing okay across the globe.

According to recent reports, Apple is apparently planning to release an LTE edition of its one and only smartwatch offering, the Apple Watch. If this turns out to be true, the tech giant will have basically liberated the wearable device from being dependent on the iPhone for connectivity.
According to a report recently published by Apple Insider, it seems that a number of familiar apps have been removed from the Apple Watch, including Google Maps, Amazon, eBay, and Target, just to name a few.

Well known Swiss watch maker TAG Heuer has effectively confirmed that it will be officially announcing a new Connected smartwatch device this coming March 14th.
