The LG G Watch represents the first wave of wearable technology powered by Google’s new Android Wear software. The G Watch clocked plenty of time onstage at Google I/O because it’s a showcase for the new platform.

The microphone isn’t for making phone calls, it’s for voice commands using “OK Google.” There’s a vibration alert for silent notifications from a compatible Android smartphone. The “always on” screen leverages Android Wear’s contextual awareness to display useful information like the weather forecast for your current location, or traffic conditions that might affect an appointment.
