Here’s the next big update to Android Wear

At Google I/O, the company’s annual developer event in San Francisco, Google announced a new version of Android Wear.

The update will make items more glanceable, actionable and effortless. Android Wear will now allow you to leave apps permanently on your device in a low-power black and white mode.

Wrist gestures will allow you to navigate the device by twisting your wrist and performing other gestures.


A new mode will also allow you to sketch an emoji and it’ll automatically be translated into the corresponding emoji. Feeling artsy?
