Minimalist keyboard crafter Minuum promised to bring Minuum to Android Wear, and they're ready to give the first glimpse of it actually in action. Previously we saw Minuum offer a concept of what their keyboard would look like on the Moto 360, but the currently-available LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live have square screens and don't need the arc-shaped layout. Plus they're also available, which made it much easier for Minuum to actually test their Android Wear keyboard in real life — as you can see above on the G Watch.

Minuum notes that "there aren't yet many apps on Android Wear built with text fields available for typing" — most Android Wear interaction is done through swiping or via voice — but they're apparently working with other developers to make it possible to use Minuum with as many apps as possible.

The question is, though, is a keyboard (Minuum or otherwise) really what you need on a smartwatch?
