Google has announced [Android Wear](http://www.androidcentral.com/android-wear "Android Wear") — it's software platform for wearables — and along with it we saw a couple new smartwatches announced, the [Moto 360](http://www.androidcentral.com/moto-360 "Moto 360") and the [LG G Watch](http://www.androidcentral.com "LG G Watch"). So Phil from Android Central, Adam from SmartwatchFans.com, CrackBerry Kevin and Mobile Nations Design Director David Lundblad got together to hash it all out. (Warning: There's a little bit of NSFW language in this one.)

google was showing real world use and pulling on heart strings while apple was playing chopsticks on an ipad. samsung was even changing diapers around the same time also. i dunno why everything has to be attributed/copied from the way apple does things. maybe some peeps ff through commercials more than others... i dunno.

NSFW language? Hahaha... Please

Listening right now. :)

No love for the G watch lol. Conversation was all about the Moto 360.
Off topic I'd like to see device manager on the watch.

Watching the live numbers today, the Moto 360 was pulling in three times the traffic.

Samsung's involvement probably means that they are providing the screens.

Android Wear: Could we be jumping the gun by thinking that this platform won't be as customisable as android itself.

I want it to be locked down as is and being a universal wearable OS but... wouldn't that be at odds with the ethos of android itself?

Android Wear Sense 6.0
Android Wear S Life Companion
Android Wear ... you get my drift.
