Android wear always on feature

Android wear has just received its first major update today. The Smartwatch platform similar to Android on Smartphones has seen significant growth thanks to its adoption by manufacturers such as LG  with the LG G Watch.

Before this update, Android Wear users did not have much customization or ‘cool’ features that make it appealing to most users. The update hopes to change this as it brings more customization including new watch faces and bands, Wi-Fi support, hand gestures and a cool new feature that allows users to draw and send emojis to friends.
