US$230 / 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?
