Over the last year, there has been a push my manufacturers to popularize wearable electronics. Samsung, Sony, Pebble, Qualcomm, etc have at some point over the last year introduced some type of smart watch. Today, Google finally threw its hat into the ring with Android Wear, a version of Android made specifically for wearable electronics. Centered around the excellent "Google Now" experience, it should do for watches what android 3.0 and up did for tablets by creating an experience specifically for the devices.
The video gives a summary of what is to be expected from the upcoming Android Wear:
Frankly, I have yet to own a smart watch, instead using my sixth generation ipod nano to play that role for me. All of the current offerings from manufacturers suffer from either half baked operating systems, terrible battery life, or just ugly design.
The Moto 360 (pictured at the beginning of the article) looks incredible and from the demo looks slick and useful for every day activities. If the price is right, there are no crazy data prices, and the battery life is tolerable or excellent, then I may be one of the first in line for this piece of tech.
