There are now more Android Wear apps than Google Glass apps

45

Less than three weeks after the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live were launched as the first Android Wear devices, the number of apps in the Google Play Store that support these watches exceeds the number of Glassware apps Google has been curating for over a year.

Measuring the success of a platform happens in many different ways, with metrics that are only usually important to specific groups of people. Sales, more specifically market share, is usually the one you hear the most about. There's another metric that is important to keep an eye on, one that means a whole lot more to users, and that's apps. When we look at a platform and decide whether or not to invest our personal money into it, the availability of apps are an increasingly significant part of that decision. This is the biggest reason that it is significant to identify a unique milestone in the Android Wear platform. Even though Google's new smartwatch platform is only a couple of weeks old, the number of apps available for it in the Google Play Store have already exceeded those available for the Mountain View company's other wearable platform.

Moto 360 price: What's the sweet spot?

218
Moto 360

How much would you pay for the Moto 360?

To say that folks are eagerly awaiting the Moto 360 ... well, that's probably the understatement of the summer. But it's backed up by our most recent weekly poll, which at the time of this writing shows 63 percent of the nearly 10,000 respondents indeed are waiting on the first round Android Wear smartwatch.

And that spurs the following question: What are you willing to pay for it?

We don't yet know what the Moto 360 price will be. There's reason to think that perhaps it might be lower than expected, given what Motorola has managed to do with its smartphones in the past year. Stylish, functional and affordable isn't the pipe dream we once thought. Will that translate over to a smartwatch? It's possible. (But we wouldn't bet the farm on it.)

Another theory, though, is that the Moto 360 will eclipse the cost of the Samsung Gear Live ($199) and LG G Watch ($229). And there's good reason for that. The round display means there will be more waste in cutting the panels. And if nothing else, it just looks a hell of a lot cooler.

And, so, we ask: What would you pay for the Moto 360?
