Everything you need, ready at a glance.

Android Wear extends the Android operating system to smart watches. It shows your messages, notifications and other useful updates at a glance, so you can be connected but not distracted.

Android Wear


Android Wear connects your phone and tablet to your wrist. Just say “OK Google” to play and skip music tracks, pause a video or quickly respond to text messages from your watch. Wear works with phones running Android 4.3 or higher.

With Android Wear, you’re always up-to-date with what matters, wherever you are. You can be present in the moment, doing whatever you're doing with whoever you're with, and still be connected to the information you need. Avoid getting your phone out and glance at your watch instead.

Useful information when you need it

Android Wear organizes information, suggests what you're going to need, and shows it to you before you even ask, such as weather forecasts in the morning and flight time and gate information before leaving for the airport.

Straight answers to spoken questions

Just say "Ok Google" to ask questions, like how many calories are in an avocado, what time your flight leaves, and what’s the score in the Barcelona game? Say "Ok Google" send texts, set alarms or even pause a video you’re casting to your TV.

Stay fit and healthy

Keep track of your fitness with daily summaries showing your step count and heart rate.* If your watch has a GPS sensor, fitness apps can track how far you’ve gone and how fast you’ve been going without your phone. Go for a run or bike ride and leave your phone at home.

*Heart rate only available on watches with heart rate monitors.
