ANDROID WEAR WORN
A smartwatch you actually need
US$230 / lg.com Well hello, Android Wear – we’ve been expecting you. And we see you’ve brought your new friend the G Watch with you. Right, let’s have a proper look at you…
Yes, Google’s bold new wearables platform has finally arrived. The OS displays glanceable location, search and calendar-based info from your Android phone, as well as serving up notifications, all in a clever, context-sensitive way – so in theory it’ll provide handy info exactly when you need it. Google wants to get it on to millions of wrists before Apple’s iWatch launches, and as the first device to run it, the G Watch has a headstart over rival designs. So, is it a worthy vehicle for the OS? And is the OS as useful as it sounds?
