Android Wear is described as small powerful devices worn on a body to give useful information when you need it. You ask questions and it answers them. It also helps you achieve your fitness goals.
The screen can show the time and the temperature and the the minute the user says something it can complete the task. The screen can also be used to "to do" items or other notifications as well as text messages. The software can be adapted to track heart rate, distance walked or other fitness uses.
The Android Wear software platform will be for smartwatches at first and will incorporate Google-cards like those seen in Google Now.
Google has approved the SDK for Android Wear and is working with LG, HTC, Motorola, Samsung and Asus for devices with processors by Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm. Fashion watchmaker the Fossil Group has also been working with Google.
Devices should go on sale later this year. Developers can try out a preview that allows developers to run Android Wear in simulator
However Motorola has already announced the Motorola 360 (a round faced) and LG has announced the LG G Watch both for the second quarter of this year.
A preview video of the Motorola 360 calls it a modern time piece and amazing technology.
LG's news release noted that the G Watch is LG’s fourth device developed in close collaboration with Google following the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. The LG G watch will be square shaped (see photo above.)
