The Android Wear experience: Google's smartwatches

Google reckons the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live have the design and software chops, but is an Android Wear smartwatch really a must-have accessory?

With the average mobile phone user checking his/her smartphone 150 times a day, it’s safe to say we are more connected than ever before. Smartphones are now an essential extension of our being but as we physically unlock our device to perform critical functions (voice calls, text messages, email) on an alarmingly repetitive basis, the advent of wearable devices looks geared to put the phone firmly back in our pockets.

Instead, the emphasis lies in the time-honoured tradition of glancing at our wrists -- and Google reckons its Android Wear line has the design and software chops to make a splash in the smartwatch market.
