"All devices we're talking about today are water resistant" but are they scalding oil resistant?
Demo on the LG? Annoying popup from Pinterest. Demo on the Moto? Ordering a pizza. The cards were kind of stacked against the LG, I'm sorry to say.
Google takes another stab at the Recipe Dilemma. There's heads-up recipe display on Glass, and now it's Android Wear's turn.
With Eat24, the food delivery app can surface favorite/repeat orders, allowing users to place a takeout or delivery order within seconds.
If an app downloaded from Google Play has a version for Android Wear, it will automatically download to the smartwatch.
Seriously, cleaner design, more beautiful screen. Hard to imagine anyone wanting the LG when they could have the Moto -- but we still wonder about cost, and availability.
I'd almost consider wearing the 360. Shiny...
A zillion zillion times nicer than the LG
Eat24, which I just used to order Thai on Sunday night, is up for the demo. Moto 360 is the watch being used for this demo
Oh, we've switched over to a Moto 360. Man, this looks about a zillion times nicer than the LG.
So, running apps directly. Should make porting easy.
Android Wear SDK available today, though it's sort of already been out there for awhile now. But, now you can run code directly on devices. "Almost all the APIs" from Android are available on Wear, too.
Full Android Wear SDK available today.
It really is one of the best in SF.
Android Wear SDK available today. Write code that runs directly on wearable. Can present fully customizable UI, control sensors, and send data between devices.
I used to live next to Han Il Kawn, the Korean BBQ place featured in the watch/reminder demo.
"The very best wearable apps respond to the users' context with glanceable cards on the screen and allow users to take direct action in just a few seconds."
Pinterest notifications! Gosh, sign me up.
We're seeing both round and square displays, not that there was any doubt we'd be seeing both.
Watches will be your phone's connection to your body. That's nothing new. Will it work is the big question. Things like Google Now's "where's my car" feature have been poxy at best.
Heart rate will be monitored by some watches, and pedometer.
"Sir I don't care what kind of watch that is or who you can call on that, I need to see your ticket."
Oh, yes, boarding pass on your wrist. I can't wait to see the confusion at the checkpoints.
Will people like me *want* watches?
"Set an alarm for 7am." Still my favorite voice command in Android. Will be nice to have on your wrist. But, can you automatically set do not disturb mode?
My question is, after nearly 20 years of not wearing a watch, I'm not sure I'm ready to go back.
The command "Play some music" turns on music with album art displayed in the background and features controls on the small screen.
