A Google App is now available for Android Wear. There was already a lot of Android in the Google smartwatch, but now with Wear you have Google notifications come directly to your wrist. Wear also seems like it was made just for Google Now and helping Now live up to all it was cut out to be when it was introduced. Android Wear can now link up with your phone and provide every notification and alert that your phone does. Google allows you to pick and choose what notifications you would like to be pushed from apps on your phone to your watch as well. The same concept of Google Now that gives you the right information at the right time is now applied to your wrist. For example, if you need to drive home, the watch will know where you are and get you directions when you need them. Additionally, it can produce the barcode for your flight at the airport, which is so much more accessible, right on your wrist. Google has added more information to Now and made it more accessible and streamlined for customers. Wear and Now both include many of Google’s services into one product. Wear is the next level of Now in that it uses new information that they have learned from Android and the ecosystem it inhabits to be better for customers. New features on Wear include voice recognition and a better, more efficient design. Essentially, the best thing that Wear does is bring Google Now straight to your wrist with a few improvements. Right now the price is a little high, at $200, but it is really worth the investment for all of the convenient features it provides. The only thing that could come in the way of the new Google Wear experience is if the iWatch turns out to be better. Until then, try Google Wear and see what you think.
