Android Wear features on display in new Google-made video

Gigaom

Android Wear, Google’s(s goog) notification-oriented smartwatch platform, is widely expected to be officially revealed at Google I/O later this month. A week before Google’s annual developer event, a new video from Google Developers gives us our best look so far at how Android Wear will work in a finished product.

The video, narrated by Timothy Jordan, a Google Developer advocate, is targeted at persuading developers to make services for Google’s wearable device. While the Android Wear SDK is not yet available, the video goes into the basics of how to make apps for the watch when it eventually becomes available, with an emphasis on approaching the platform differently from the phone. “When considering which features of your service you’d like to make available on your wrist, consider this question: what couldn’t we do on the phone we can now do on the wrist.” Jordan said. “What now becomes possible to the user?”
