As if it’s any surprise the new Android Wear demoed recently completely blows me away. You can check it out in action at one of my favorite blogs Droid Life.
Android has come a long way from the original Sidekick phones. Remember those? They were all that was cool and happening, at least in my neck of the woods. I remember being amazed back then that not only could I get my email on my phone, but I could browse the web AND look at cute graphics day or night. I was sold over on Android from day one and I have yet to be disappointed.
Through crap Samsung bricks to great Vanilla goodness that is the Moto X I have been there with Android through thick and thin. So if they want to repay my loyalty with kick ass innovation I won’t complain. I, also having learned my lesson early on, won’t be first in line, but hey that’s an Android users’ choice.
As excited as I am about Google Glass, Android Wear seems extremely down to earth and intelligent in functionality and design. It’s a piece of tech I can consistently see myself wearing and with Google Now I can already see the feature set growing.
Since there are no details on pricing I can still hope and pray these wearables come in under a fraction of the Google Glass price.
