Yesterday Google announced Android Wear, a new Android platform for wearable devices. Android Wear will be available on various smartwatches from OEMs like Samsung, Asus, Motorola, LG and others. LG and Motorola have already announced devices that will be out later this summer. The G Watch and Moto 360 will be some of the first Android Wear devices to hit the streets, and if what little we've seen so far is any indication, they could be some amazing devices.

Android Wear Roundup - Here's everything you need to know!


I'd rather not have talk be the main input. And if this gets popular everyone will be saying ok google all the time and I can just imagine the false triggers. Much prefer touch or button input. Voice could be secondary.

Posted via the Android Smartwatch Fans App on my BlackBerry Q10!

+Gregory - pretty much why I broke down and bought a Pebble a while back. It did everything I wanted but the voice interactions, and the more I thought about those, the less appealing they became.

What I want to know:
1) Is Android Wear useful on a device without a voice input?
2) If #1 is yes, will Wear run on a Pebble?

If Pebble can manage to run both somehow, they'll win big.

i just want it to be able to go in the water with no problems at all , thats the only thing that is pulling me towards the gear fit

question are the gear neo and gn2 water proof ??????
