The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage.

Give Your Android Wear Device a Lock Screen with Lockable
Without a doubt, Android Wear is one of the most frequently talked about topics of the last few weeks. The upcoming Moto 360 and other circular smartwatches will be released next week during the IFA in Berlin. These devices have already gathered a following of eager owners and developers working on applications and other goods for this wearable ecosystem.
Nearly every device with Android on board, no matter if it’s a smartphone or a tablet, allows its users to use some kind of lock screen protection. Among the most popular methods, you can find a swipe gesture, a PIN code, face unlock, password unlock, and of course the Android hallmark lock screen pattern. However, this isn’t the case on Android Wear by default. Now, these methods have been successfully ported over to Android Wear by XDA Senior Member Mohammad_Adib. This application can be used to protect your device from other people trying to access it. Lockable can also lock your device when it’s dimmed and much more. It’s a great way to enhance the Android Wear experience in a simple manner.
The free version of the app allows you to use swipe gestures, while other unlock methods can be unlocked with an in-app purchase. We don’t promote paid applications, but a free version offers quite a lot.
If you are an Android Wear device owner or you are planning to get one of these brand new smartwatches, protect them with Lockable. You can get it by visiting the application thread.
