Most of us are rarely without our smartphones in hand. These powerful supercomputers keep us connected to the world and the people we love. But we're only at the beginning; we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible with mobile technology. That’s why we’re so excited about wearables—they understand the context of the world around you, and you can interact with them simply and efficiently, with just a glance or a spoken word.

Android Wear: Information that moves with you
Today we’re announcing Android Wear, a project that extends Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. Going well beyond the mere act of just telling you the time, a range of new devices along with an expansive catalogue of apps will give you:
  • Useful information when you need it most.
  • Straight answers to spoken questions.
  • The ability to better monitor your health and fitness.
  • Your key to a multiscreen world.
Starting today, you can download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. What are your thoughts on Android coming to wearables?
