41
Moto 360

For all its flaws, I'm still using Moto's Android Wear watch instead of its more capable competition.

I've used a fair few Android Wear watches since the platform first launched almost a year ago. I've gone from the imperfect and frustrating LG G Watch to the functional but slightly clunky G Watch R, before finally settling on the Moto 360. But the 360 isn't the only watch I'd recommend — there are a few others worth considering, many of them more practical than Moto's circular wonder.

The Android Central Google I/O 2015 Preview

31
Google I/O 2015

It's that time of year again, and by the looks of things Google has plenty of awesome to show us.

Google's annual developer conference is right around the corner, and there's a lot to talk about this year. A lot has happened in the last 12 months that position Google to make some big announcements this year, continuing the bold new direction the company has taken Android, Chrome, and just about everything else the company does.

While San Francisco prepares for thousands of developers — as well as a couple of Android Central's finest — to descend once again upon the Moscone West convention center, it seemed like a good time to take a look at what we're expecting from this year's Google Nerd Christmas.
