Google has just released a video on how Android wearables would work, specifically smartwatches. They also released the details in their blog and included a developer preview, giving us a glimpse into Android’s near future.
Android Wear is what Google calls it, and it will start with watches being extensions to Android devices. The whole idea is that all the information moves along with you through Google Now. The interface is full of Google Now design elements and the Cards UI, being operated by voice and by touch. As seen in the video, it gives you access to your time, weather, meetings, sports team updates, Hangouts messages, music and a lot more.
Google has been reported to be working on a smartwatch with LG already and the specs have been leaked here. The potential is there as we can all see, but we still have a lot to uncover as the smartwatch race rages on. Stay tuned!
