Android Wear is a version of Android on Google, designed and optimized for smart watches (smartwatches) and other “wearable” devices.
The term “wearable” devices, translated as “wearable” computers or “wearable” electronics is not new, but in recent years entered mass in use around the attempts of big technology companies to create new technology boom (respectively corporate profits) based on the revolution of miniature electronic devices worn on the body or clothing. The terms used in English are wearable computers, body-borne computers or wearables. Examples of such gadgets can be smart watches, bracelets, glasses, clothes, etc. At the moment it’s not clear which way will direct the technology in terms of computing power and general principle of operation of these devices. Whether they will be independent from devices and build their own ecosystem of applications or will be a sort of remote displays for more powerful electronics? Both are totally possible technology available and real today, but who would be more effective and enforced in the coming years? The decision is clearly not completely cleared as a concept and it will show the practice of entering this electronics consumers. The fact is that at the moment and originally Android Wear devices will work independently and will require connection with a smartphone (and tablet, etc.), except for the most basic functions.
After a few lyrical clarification, let us return to blitz offensive Google’s right to “portable” through new and hot hot Wear!

Still Wear is not created just because the clocks, which means that we can expect any other surprising products. The main key points that should be “merely check” as determined by Google, are battery life (to the extent depend on the software), the quality of the built-in Google services (most notably Google Now), daily convenience of the interface, work on design and quality manufacture of hardware partners, as well as the price range of proposals for different classes of users. Great development on the issue is expected during the annual conference the Google I / o, scheduled on 25 and 26 June 2014. in San Francisco.
