Field Trip adds Android Wear support in latest update

Field Trip, the popular exploration app from Google's Niantic Labs, has received an update which brings full Android Wear support to the app. With the new support users will be able to explore the areas around them right from their wrist. Cards describing nearby places will appear right on their smartwatch, so they won't have to take out their phones to see what's around. Since the application runs in the background on the phone, cards will automatically appear when you are near a location, or you can use voice command to get nearby recommendations.

The full list of changes in version 2.0.8 is:

  • Explore the world with your Android Wear watch!
  • Receive and view Field Trip notifications directly on your watch.
  • Start Field Trip searches for nearby cards directly on your watch.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Field Trip gathers information from more than 200 curated publishers around the world, from Thrillist to Eater, Zagat, Travel Channel and many more. The update is live now in Google Play as a free download.
