For me, android wear really shined when I was out of town and going to meet a friend. I sent him a message and shortly I received one back as to his location on my watch. This is cool and with just one swipe and a few verbal words I responded back to him. It was so fast and effortless. I did not have to take my phone from my pocket, unlock the screen, navigate to hangouts and than enter the message. Right from the watch I was able to verbally speak my message into the watch and off it went. I wanted to say it twice in case you missed how quick the process. I was able to go back to what I was doing with very little change to my current activity. That was amazing, I am able to stay connected, while being unconnected. If that makes sense.
I recently added evernote and “if this than that” onto the watch. Both are very powerful and as a long time user of evernote the application just got a lot stronger for me. I can quickly see a to-do list or recently taken notes.
The platform is very simple and almost too easy to use, but that is what makes it so nice. The watch is there and provides data when you need it. Almost being google glass for your wrist. It does not stand out and scream hey here I am, but stands by providing you valuable data when you want it.
