Google has announced Android Wear, a project that extends Android to wearable devices.

We’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible with mobile technology. That’s why we’re so excited about wearables—they understand the context of the world around you, and you can interact with them simply and efficiently, with just a glance or a spoken word.

The company is initially focused on watches. Here are some of the features that Android Wear will bring to devices.

Features:
● Useful information when you need it most. Android Wear shows you info and suggestions you need, right when you need them. The wide variety of Android applications means you’ll receive the latest posts and updates from your favorite social apps, chats from your preferred messaging apps, notifications from shopping, news and photography apps, and more.
● Straight answers to spoken questions. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions, like how many calories are in an avocado, what time your flight leaves, and the score of the game. Or say “Ok Google” to get stuff done, like calling a taxi, sending a text, making a restaurant reservation or setting an alarm.
● The ability to better monitor your health and fitness. Hit your exercise goals with reminders and fitness summaries from Android Wear. Your favorite fitness apps can give you real-time speed, distance and time information on your wrist for your run, cycle or walk.
● Your key to a multiscreen world. Android Wear lets you access and control other devices from your wrist. Just say “Ok Google” to fire up a music playlist on your phone, or cast your favorite movie to your TV. There’s a lot of possibilities here so we’re eager to see what developers build.

Starting today, a Developer Preview of Android Wear is available so developers can tailor their app notifications to devices powered by Android Wear. Additional developer resources and APIs are coming soon and will be available at developer.android.com/wear.

Google says it's already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring watches powered by Android Wear to market later this year.

Now all this Apple Trolls are butthurt, cause they have nothing to compare it to, but in their vague mind, they think apple has designed a watch that doesn't eve exist. Now Watch apple copy all this just like the did everything else. At least Google is being Original. Whatever you say does not count, bunch of wanna be, gayboy, fanboys and apple trolls. iphone 5c 8gb $530.00 what a rip off, but is their normal way of business, white collar thiefs.

Now all these samscum trolls are jealous praying for successful shit they try to have, cause they do nothing but act like the CEO has the power of innovation but waits for new features to copy to stay alive, it's like a parasite and trolls just can't learn to face it, they design shit just to compete and show their feeling when it comes to ads, how about stop with the illogical methods you rely on and how about come up with shit apple hasn't planed or concepts you get ideas off of. At least not every company is not this retarded to do the same like microjunk, HTC and Motorola are about as good as apple, googay though, who needs them anymore after googay plus and the bob, oh the hate spread over youtube, the old styles many miss, and look what happens. Whatever you flatter yourself, gimmick about, or myth make doesn't prove a shit because no Fck agrees, bunch of ignoranting moronic mindless SOULESS samsheeps worshipping like this all they want. 5c $29 at Walmart, not a rip off, this is business with deals, black sheeps thieves.

Both of you whiny pathetic ranting fckers, they're just fcking watches, what's the big deal if either of you think how releasing a tiny wearable gadget makes that much sense to make anyone jealous or copy from another? It doesn't matter how they did it or how it works, watches how their own creativity, no matter how long it takes to make one or how it looks, both of your attention seeking delusional statements is just ridiculous. Think of it as consoles. Many choose what they want, pick the controller they would prefer, and what kind of graphics suits them best, and there you go, they are happy with what they have, convincing another what they don't want changes nothing but how you both act, grow up, pick what both you want, and shut up.

this is really lame attempt to get attention since no one has a battery life solution color display always on, microphone analysing your voice without multiple microphones always on is just a no brainer to scrap

Google plus, google TV to google watch are overly price useless toys. It should be called good-gle enough but not the best!
