Explore new opportunities to build next-gen experiences with an Android Wear device
Can an Android smartwatch be more than a fashion accessory, fitness tracker, an easy-notification viewer or a gimmick? Are they really worth the money? Are they really going to change the world?

I have been a hobbyist Android developer since 2011 and a professional Android developer for more than a year now.
