And also read below for the smaller stories from the week you might have missed, kicking off with some intriguing Apple Watch news.

Apple Watch Sport's colourful reboot

All eyes will be on Cupertino next week with the new iPhones are likely to get an official airing. We're hoping for some juicy watchOS 2 news as well and, if a MacRumours report rings true, we could be seeing some new Apple Watch designs as well.

The Apple blog claims a number of new colour straps for the Sport edition will be revealed with "a focus on darker colors to complement the neon-like shades of the existing Apple Watch Sport bands".

Android Wear gets smarter

We love IFTTT tech and recipes here at Wareable and it's fairly obvious we dig Android Wear too.

So we were delighted on Wednesday when the Do Button for Android Wear went live. The addition means easy one touch controls for a range of scenarios - check out the IFTTT blog for more info.

Martian invasion

A range of new Martian smartwatches broke cover this week, including the Aviator, Envoy and Alpha models.

Martian is gaining in popularity for offering consumers a basic notification smartwatch with a fashionable design. Last year it signed up to a collaboration with Guess and essentially built the blingy Guess Connect.

The new Active Collection will be available exclusively at Bloomingdale's from 12 September 12, with prices starting at $249.

Contactless payments get a boost

Great news if you live in the UK and you like paying for things with your Apple Watch (other digital wallets are available). The upper limit has been raised from £20 to £30.

Apple Pay is one of the key benefits of the Apple Watch, and at last a tangible feature that people can use and enjoy. If you want to know which stores you can tap and pay with your watch just read our Apple Pay guide.
