Android Wear

A wearable version of the Android operating system. Designed for smartwatches and other body-worn devices, Google Now was integrated into Android Wear to anticipate the user's information needs. In 2014, the LG G Watch and Moto 360 were the first smartwatches running Android Wear.

In 2015, Wi-Fi support was added to allow music, GPS, notifications and apps to be used without the phone nearby. Gesture controls enable scrolling by flicking the wrist, and a battery-saving black and white mode was also included. See Google Now and Android.
