Android Wear 2.0
Android Wear 2.0 is the current generation of the Android Wear platform. With Android Wear 2.0, developers can build standalone Wear apps that function without the need for a paired phone app. In addition, Wear 2.0 includes the Complications API, which gives watch face and app developers another way to surface glanceable information. Wear 2.0 also includes updated notification support, which makes it easier for users to read and interact with app notifications.
with a user experience that's designed specifically for wearables.
Get glanceable, actionable information at just the right time with notifications that are synced from your phone.
Say “Ok Google” to send messages, ask questions, and get stuff done.
Design apps that can access a wide range of sensors and other hardware directly on the wearable.
Before you start building, check out the Android Wear Design Principles to understand how to create great experiences for this exciting form factor.
Notifications on phones can automatically sync to wearables, so design them with both devices in mind.
Register your app to handle voice actions, like "Ok Google, take a note," for a hands-free experience.
Build Wearable Apps
Create custom experiences with activities, services, sensors, and much more with the Android SDK.
Send data and actions between phones and wearables with data replication APIs and RPCs.
We’re working with partners around the world to build watches powered by Android Wear!
Set up your development environment and start working with the APIs. We’re excited about the experiences you'll create and can't wait to see what you do next.
