Google has joined the ranks of tech companies hoping to stimulate the smartwatch market. The company this week unveiled its operating system for wearable technology, Android Wear, and revealed that the first hardware running it will be available later this year.
This is LG's Android Wear-powered device, the LG G Watch, which is expected to launch sometime in the second quarter of this year.
Here's Motorola's Moto 360, which the company said will be available this summer. The watch is voice controlled, using Google Now — the wearer can say "OK Google" to ask questions, send a text or set an alarm.
