Flytecam ($TBA) is another contender for the POV video camera space. It's a 1080p shooter that comes with a rubberized body that is waterproof down to about 18 feet. This should save you the hassle of having to buy a waterproof case like other POV video cameras. Other specs include a 120-degree lens and it shoots 60fps at 720p. The Flytecam also comes with a battery with an expected life of 3 hours per charge. The specs put the Flytecam just above GoPro's cheapest offering. The final price will determine whether Flytecam will be able to compete with GoPro. Pre-orders will be starting shortly.

Trying to steal a little thunder from the up coming release of Apple's smartwatch, LG has announced its new luxury smartwatch. The LG Watch Urbane ($TBA) wraps the classic styling of a traditional watch around the guts of a modern day smartwatch. The new watch features a 1.3-inch circular P-OLD display and an all metal case. Several finishes are available for the case including stainless steel, polished silver and gold. Because the watch uses a standard 22mm strap, you can use pretty much any strap you want, e.g. rubber, nato, or leather. The one downfall of this watch and the Apple offering is their water resistance. The Urbane is stated to have an IP67 dust and water resistance, which mean its OK for spills and rain but isn't meant to be worn while showering or swimming.

The result is an absolutely stunning piece of work.
