In this edition of the Android Authority Podcast, Joshua Vergara is joined by Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy and David Imel, with more stories of global travel and bad weather. Topics of the week included further discussion on Android Wear, at least on wearables in general, before diving into fitness trackers and smart watches - do you sense a theme? Finally, we talk about Android keyboards, following the update of Google Keyboard to the new GBoard, which leads us to ask if the basic apps that we have on deck today are enough, or is there room for a new powerhouse app, like Tasker was in its day?

In this edition of the Android Authority Podcast, Joshua Vergara is joined by Jonathan Feist, Joe Hindy, and a returning Nirave Gondhia (happy belated birthday!) as they get together to talk about two of the main topics of the week - rumors that surround the Samsung Galaxy S8 and its potential omission of the headphone jack, and the dissolving of Pebble as a company when fitness tracking company Fitbit bought many of its assets. There is plenty to talk about here as Josh gives his thoughts on Pebble as a company and product that he loves and the gang talks about what they think about smartwatches and, in particular, Android Wear.
