Watch Series 4 gets big Amazon love

And finally: Google's notification wearable

Apple is set to make getting hold of its smartwatch from one of the biggest online retailers a whole lot easier. That's according to the folks at Cnet and the news that Amazon has signed a deal with the Cupertino company to start selling more Apple products on the site worldwide.

Those products will include iPhones, iPads and the Apple Watch, including the new Apple Watch Series 4. The new listings are set to start rolling out on Amazon in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and India.

In the past Amazon has opted not to sell certain Apple products while many that are available are via third party sellers. This is a big deal for Apple as it'll no doubt help the company shift even more devices. But it's also a big win for Amazon, especially with Black Friday and Christmas on the horizon.

Samsung Galaxy Watch gets Tidal app

And finally: Google's notification wearable

Samsung was the first wearable to get a proper Spotify app and now it's added Tidal to the mix to offer more music streaming options from the wrist.

The new Tidal Samsung app is available for Samsung's fitness trackers and smartwatches, which includes the Gear Fit2, Gear Sport, Gear S3 and of course the Samsung Galaxy Watch. The official offering will let you browse music and podcasts and view playlists from your wearable. There's voice support to help make it easier to search and the all important offline playlist support is there too when you want to listen to that exclusive new Jay Z album sans smartphone.

To make the most of the app, you will need to be a paid up member of Tidal and if you sign up for the first time with a compatible Samsung wearable, you'll get three months to try it out for free.

Dyson's wearable air purifier plans

And finally: Google's notification wearable

Dyson is of course best known for vacuum cleaners, hand dryers and pricey hairdryers, but it could have plans to add wearable air purifiers to its collection of tech.

That's according to Bloomberg who said it's spoken with two people with knowledge of the project. The device, which will primarily work as an air purifier could well double as a pair of headphones too. The company has already filed patents for a 'wearable air purifier' this year to suggest it's working on a wearable device.

The idea of a wearable air purifier could have great appeal in heavily polluted cities across the world including major cities in Asia. Of course, Dyson like a lot of companies file hundreds of patents that never see the light of day. But the fact that sources close to the private project believe it is in the works, could suggest this is one Dyson idea that could become a reality.
