Dante D’Orazio for The Verge:

Google is officially getting into wearables. The company has announced Android Wear, a version of the operating system designed specifically for wearable devices. To start with, the system is made for smartwatches, and Google is moving aggressively to make itself the key name in wearables.

And so it begins. Googles idea for the smartwatch is interesting, but I wonder why they couldn’t wait with the reveal until they had more to show than a couple of 3D renders and a UI draft. A real product, perhaps.
