Google has plans to release a number of updates to its Android Wear software before the end of 2014, which will include adding GPS features for the devices that support such a feature in hardware.

In an interview with CNET, Android Engineering Director David Singleton stated that another update will add a way to link a Bluetooth headset with an Android Wear watch. He added an example of how both GPS and Bluetooth would work:

"If you're someone who likes to go for a run, it might be convenient to be able to leave your phone at home. So you can start recording your track with GPS on the watch. You can throw on some music and have a really enjoyable run. And when you come back home, everything will be synced up with the apps running on your phone."

Another new feature that's coming will allow third party developers to develop and release custom watch faces via the Google Play Store. Singleton said that one update for Android Wear will be released this week, which should "improve the navigation experience and some of the voice action experience."
