Google has announced it is working on Android Wear - a special Android version for wearable devices. Naturally the first target group of Android Wear is smartwatches, but the OS focus will expand to even more gadgets soon.

What's the Android Wear?

Android Wear is a special miniature version of the popular mobile OS that will allow you to interact with your wearable via voice commands and you will receive straight answers both on-screen and as voice feedback.

Here is what Android Wear can do for you:

Useful information when you need it most - Android Wear shows you info and suggestions you need, right when you need them. The wide variety of Android applications means you’ll receive the latest posts and updates from your favorite social apps, chats from your preferred messaging apps, notifications from shopping, news and photography apps, and more.

There’s a lot of possibilities here so we’re eager to see what developers build.

And here is the official promo video, which looks really nice. It shows a watch from LG (the square one) and a watch from Motorola (the round one).

Google says many of them will
probably require little to no
additional updates.

Google has already partnered up with manufacturers such as Asus, HTC, LG and Samsung, plus chipmakers such as Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm.
Android Wear-powered smartwatches are already in the works and will hit the market later this year.
