Google Android Wear is a special Android version for wearable devices

Before the Moto 360 was announced, Google has announced Android Wear, which is a special Android version for wearable devices. The Moto 360 was the first wearable device running on this special Android version.

Android Wear is a special version of the popular mobile OS that will allow you to interact with your wearable via voice commands and you will receive straight answers both on-screen and as voice feedback. Here is what Android Wear can do for you:

- 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.

Meanwhile, LG is also working on a smartwatch - LG G Watch. It features a 1.65" screen with a 280 x 280 resolution, 512MB RAM and 4GB of built-in storage. The smartwatch will go on sale in Q2 this year.
