Smartwatches have just gotten a decent upgrade thanks to the Google Android Wear. It is essentially a watch that connects to a person's Android phone in order to bring Google to their wrist for convenient access of information and communication. Although similar to Motorola's latest Moto360 design, it is a beast of its own. What makes the Google Android Wear particularly exceptional is its index card-like interface, which can be resized and reshaped to any screen imaginable.

Displaying such information as local weather, text messages and even taxi movements in a passive way, the Google Android Wear boasts a much more intuitive design. Other similar smartwatches are simply smartphones for the wrist, which doesn't change the game too significantly. The Google Android Wear also still enables gesture and voice.
