Health and Fitness
Your health is in your hands is a saying, but it turns to reality with the smartwatches. There are apps that can be downloaded such as Allthecooks Recipes and Eat24 Food Delivery, but it is drawback that there is no app that helps in measuring the heart rate or pedometer. Ultimately, the health and fitness apps for the Android Wear devices are not up to the mark and we expect it to progress soon with more applications.
These days, we get to keep in touch with friends via social media and even read news on-to-go using the smart devices. Keeping this mind, a slew of applications have been released for the Android Wear devices and they include popular apps such as Pinterest, Player FM, The Guardian and Thomson Reuters Eikon.
Booking flight tickets, traveling from one place to another and rest is pretty simple with the advancement in technology. Even if you enter a new place, the navigation related apps will help you in getting turn by turn directions. With the Android Wear devices also it is possible to get such benefits and for that Google Play includes American Airlines, Fly Delta, Glympse and Google Maps.
The smart devices are the primary means of communicating with each other without much hassle. You can not only chat with family and friends, but also make video calls and voice chats from any corner of the world. The same is possible with the Android Wear based smartwatches with the Hangouts and Talkray applications. We soon believe that Google will list out more such applications that are commonly used.
