TCL NXTWEAR AIR promises to fix the worst thing about wearable displays

No, the NXTWEAR AIR isn't an AR device.

What you need to know

  • TCL's new NXTWEAR AIR wearable display glasses are designed for comfort and portability.
  • The NXTWEAR AIR features dual 1080p Micro OLED screens with a 47 pixels-per-degree resolution for a "cinema-like level of clarity."
  • The glasses are compatible with over 100 smartphones and can also be used as a second screen when paired with a laptop.

TCL expanded its wearables lineup at CES 2022 with the launch of the new NXTWEAR AIR. The company's second-generation wearable display glasses tout a more comfortable fit and happen to be 30% lighter.

Just like the NXTWEAR G glasses that the company announced last year, the new NXTWEAR AIR is basically an external display that you can connect to your phone or laptop. It is equipped with two Full HD Micro OLED displays, which TCL claims can create a viewing environment "equivalent of watching a 140-inch screen, 4 meters away."

Thanks to a 47 pixels-per-degree resolution, the wearable display glasses promise to deliver a cinema-like level of clarity. The glasses also come with dual speakers that can play back stereo audio for spatial effects. You can also connect any wired or wireless headphones to the NXTWEAR AIR for a more private experience.

The new TCL NXTWEAR AIR weighs just 75g with the standard lens, which means it won't weigh you down when watching movies or gaming for hours. Besides greater comfort, the glasses can also be customized to match users' style with two exchangeable front lenses.

TCL says the wearable display glasses are "perfect for commuters, anyone travelling for work, or on a flight." When paired with a laptop, the glasses can act as a second screen as well. Users can also enjoy a "private arcade experience" by pairing the NXTWEAR AIR's companion device with a Bluetooth controller.

Since it uses a USB Type-C connector, the NXTWEAR AIR is compatible with all the best Android phones on the market. It also works with a wide range of tablets and laptops.

TCL hasn't announced pricing or availability yet, but we expect the wearable display glasses to go on sale in select markets sometime later this year.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
