Google jumps headfirst into the smartwatch space with its new platform, Android Wear.
The idea behind Android Wear is to bring contextual information to the user when it's most needed. That can mean getting the latest updates from a social app, pumping in instant messages and photos, and showing the fastest route to get to your next appointment.
Android Wear is voice-enabled, following the "OK Google" dictation scheme of gathering information. Google also says that Android Wear will hit on the popular health monitor market, allowing for real-time access to data for both users and apps.
