UNVEILED: Motorola announces the Moto 360 - The Company's first Android Wear Smartwatch
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:56 CET under 04 - Android News

LG isn't the only company which announced today its first Android Wear smartwatch but also Motorola announced an Android Wear wearable - the Moto 360! Typical for an Android Wear smart device, the Moto 360 keeps its user on time and up to date without taking anyone out of the moment. It's telling the user what he/she needs to know before they know they need it - through subtle alerts and notifications. With just a twist of the wrist users can see who's E-Mailing or calling, what time the next meeting is or a friend's latest social post. Moto 360 also responds to voice by responding to "Ok Google" which allows to to ask questions like who won the Stanford vs. New Mexico game or what time the flight leaves.

OFFICIAL: Google announces Android Wear - Android for Wearables - Starting with Smartwatches
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:31 CET under 04 - Android News

Remember when I told you last October that Google had plans to fork Android for wearables? Well, Google made it official now as "Google Wear" and it makes sense for Google since wearables are a hot topic for the industry and one of "the next big things" after smartphones have reached its penetration in developed market. As Google said in a blog posting, "we're only at the beginning [with mobile technology]" and that "we've barely scratched the surface of what's possible with mobile technology". That's why Google said it's so "excited about wearables" because "they understand the context of the world around you, and you can interact with them simply and efficiently, with just a glance or a spoken word".
