Wear Aware is a leash for your smartphone from your Android Wear

Wear Aware is a simple app for your Android Wear smartphone that serves as a leash for your smartphone. When you walk away from your phone, Wear Aware will vibrate and play an audible alarm on your wrist so that you know that you've left your phone behind. This is useful for those times when you've set your phone down on a table at a cafe or restaurant and forget to pick it up when you leave.

The app is a free download and brings a similar functionality to Android Wear that has been available on Pebble, Samsung's Gear series, and other smartwatches in the past. For now, the developer says that Wear Aware is in its first version and some bugs may crop up.

Will this app make your G Watch, Gear Live, or Moto 360 more useful?

My understanding was that the watches don't have a speaker. So how would your watch play a Audible sound?

LG G watch has a mic and speaker

crxssi says:

I was going to ask the exact same question (and did on another thread and got no response). Which of these watches will and will not have a speaker?

They definitely don't have a speaker. Android Wear itself does not support Audio so far.

Nice! Some reviewer said it did not! Good to know!

Pebble had this function before Samsung released their first wearable, I think. It seems like kind of a no-brainer feature, really. I don't know why this function wouldn't be baked in natively, rather than requiring a third party app.

My AC App signature lacks a witty comment.

I think you mean Pebble thing.

Will it make your phone ring if you can't find it?

Bwahahahaha says:

That'd be awesome!

That would be a nice feature to have.

So, Android Wear will be a trusted device?

It does seem like a must-have app for the watch. If it saves you leaving your phone somewhere just once, it has paid for itself... oh wait, it's free...

Yes!!!! Just what I needed!!

Your don't need the speaker just a mic. Get rid of it and increase battery

Is there any app like this one for the Sony SW2 smartwatch?

From us left behind

sebuas says:

I have sw2 and it has built in on the newest update ability to vibrate when connected/disconnected from the phone. It will now alarm phone thought but for me it is enought.

I ordered lg g watch and will install this app but i would hope developer would add easy to use time for that/&switch so if i am home and it disconnect it will not yell loudly but when i am outside i could enable it. LLama(which i use) and tasker function would be superb for this kind of app.
