The year of Android Wear — An Android Central Roundtable

18
Android Wear watches

Android Wear — Google's operating system for wearables — is more than a year old. But in the tech world, a year can seem like an eternity. Or at least time enough to see a healthy leap from one generation to the next, whether we're talking about hardware, or software, or both.

There are currently seven Android Wear watches in the wild, with five of them still available for purchase directly from Google. The LG Watch Urbane, ASUS ZenWatch, LG G Watch R, Sony SmartWatch 3, Moto 360, Samsung Gear Live, and LG G Watch. They range from bland displays on your wrist to timepieces that could well pass for a decent-looking analog watch. They're still very much the first generation of Android Wear hardware, though the software has progressed quite a bit in their lifetime.
