    Oops, demo fail. Voice recognition in giant halls always a bit of a gamble.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:04:14 PM
    Ah, live demos with tech flubs.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:04:15 PM
    As is trying to get the peanut butter out of the bottom of a jar.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:04:33 PM
    But the Limburger cheese voice recognition works.

    Nice, setting do not disturb is as easy as swiping down on the display. Simple.

    Music controls on the watch activate the music app on the phone.

    My question is, after nearly 20 years of not wearing a watch, I'm not sure I'm ready to go back.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:06:24 PM
    "Set an alarm for 7am." Still my favorite voice command in Android. Will be nice to have on your wrist. But, can you automatically set do not disturb mode?
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:06:28 PM
    Will people like me *want* watches?
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:06:29 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:06:43 PM
    Oh, yes, boarding pass on your wrist. I can't wait to see the confusion at the checkpoints.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:06:54 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:07:00 PM
    "Sir I don't care what kind of watch that is or who you can call on that, I need to see your ticket."
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:07:15 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:07:40 PM
    Heart rate will be monitored by some watches, and pedometer.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:08:12 PM
    Watches will be your phone's connection to your body. That's nothing new. Will it work is the big question. Things like Google Now's "where's my car" feature have been poxy at best.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:08:24 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:08:37 PM
    We're seeing both round and square displays, not that there was any doubt we'd be seeing both.

    Pinterest notifications! Gosh, sign me up.

    I used to live next to Han Il Kawn, the Korean BBQ place featured in the watch/reminder demo.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:09:48 PM
    It really is one of the best in SF.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:09:59 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:10:04 PM
    Full Android Wear SDK available today.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:10:08 PM
    Android Wear SDK available today, though it's sort of already been out there for awhile now. But, now you can run code directly on devices. "Almost all the APIs" from Android are available on Wear, too.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:10:14 PM
    So, running apps directly. Should make porting easy.
  • James Martin 6/25/2014 5:10:37 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:10:59 PM
    Oh, we've switched over to a Moto 360. Man, this looks about a zillion times nicer than the LG.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:11:08 PM
    Eat24, which I just used to order Thai on Sunday night, is up for the demo. Moto 360 is the watch being used for this demo

  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:11:45 PM
    I'd almost consider wearing the 360. Shiny...
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:11:53 PM
    Seriously, cleaner design, more beautiful screen. Hard to imagine anyone wanting the LG when they could have the Moto -- but we still wonder about cost, and availability.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/25/2014 5:12:45 PM
    Google takes another stab at the Recipe Dilemma. There's heads-up recipe display on Glass, and now it's Android Wear's turn.
  • Tim Stevens 6/25/2014 5:12:48 PM
    Demo on the LG? Annoying popup from Pinterest. Demo on the Moto? Ordering a pizza. The cards were kind of stacked against the LG, I'm sorry to say.
