Android Wear Developer Preview Now Available

Developers, your Android Wear developer preview is now available. We already showed you Android Wear in action, but in order to get your own apps ready for that type of experience, Google is letting you get in on the action early.

The dev preview – once you sign up – will get you into an emulator that will let you preview how your notifications will look on both square and round Android wearables. That’s right, we are getting multiple shapes, including a round watch from Motorola dubbed the Moto 360. The preview also includes new Android Wear APIs, so that you can “customize and extend notifications to accept voice replies, feature additional pages, and stack with similar notifications.” 

Sign up to be a part of the preview here.

You’ll also find the Android Wear developers community on Google+ here.

Check out the intro to Android Wear developer features below.

    I’m very curious to see if the SDK can be built and put on a galaxy gear. I would like to grab one for $100 if this can be flashed to it. We will know in the coming months
