Android Wear gets new update

Google updated Android Wear with support for interactive watch faces and Google Translate. The new version is rolling out to all Android Wear watches over-the-air  in the coming weeks.

Interactive watch faces are exactly what you’d expect, They let you engage with information on the actual watch screen when you first look at your wrist. Tapping could change the watch face design, launch a specific app, or reveal more information such as location of your next meeting, the weather, or your fitness activity. Google has worked with some early partners on a handful of interactive watch faces. There are 21 available today, of which Google highlighted three to showcase what interactive watch faces can do better.
