Google to develop smart Android Wear

Apple seems to be prepping an iWatch while Google has now demoed how notifications will work for the upcoming smartwatches. LG and Motorola were among the first companies to hop in with Google in the smart wearables market with the first Android Wear-powered device just weeks away from launch.


Google’s developer Timothy Jordan has written a post on the company’s Social network explaining that all Android apps can be extended to the wearable devices with little effort. He has also mentioned that just by adding a few lines of code, developers can deliver even richer experiences on the wearable by using stacks, pages, and voice replies.

Google’s Android Wear is a platform for the wearables and they are being portrayed as devices where you have easier access to the notifications of your smartphone. The notifications will take up the lower end of the screen and the apps icon taking up the top right. Users can also use right-to-left gestures to view longer notifications (think long emails) on multiple screens. Google have just released a video demonstrating how the notification system works on the Android Wear platform.
