If you're excited about Android Wear, you'll be happy to hear that shortly after the Google I/O 2014 keynote, Google Maps was updated to support your favorite upcoming smartwatches. Seeing as Maps will be a major use case for Android Wear, this is great news regardless of whether you're getting the Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360, or LG G Watch.

Of course, Android Wear can do a whole lot more, including handling media, communications, health tracking, and, of course, telling the time. Do you guys see yourselves using Android Wear for turn-by-turn GPS directions? Are there any new use cases that a watch might enable that otherwise aren't practical for a smartphone?

I use Google Maps on my Pebble Steel. I find it very convenient to use when driving or walking around a city I've never visited before & trying to find my destination
