Android Wear

Android 5.0: it’s not just for smartphones anymore. (Well okay; it was for smartphones and tablets before, but that kinda ruins the joke.) With the latest software update out of Google, the company’s wearable computing platform gets a big boost. Around here, we call it the Android Wear Lollipop edition – and it’s already made our Moto 360 and G Watch R smartwatches much more capable.

Join us for a guided tour of Android Wear Lollipop! In five minutes, we take you for a spin around new notification settings, specialized modes for movie theaters and beach days, a new gallery built just for watch faces, and the coveted “undo dismiss” command we’ve wanted since day one. We also show you what hasn’t changed, and shed some early light on a few issues that might have snuck in with this build.

Our Android Wear Lollipop tour lies below, and beneath it our Moto 360 and G Watch R video reviews for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to let us know about your own experience with Android Wear Lollipop: drop a line in the comments below!
