NOTE: While this edition represents good value, there is a newer Second Edition of this book. If you just bought an Android Wear smartwatch, you need this book... because there is no comprehensive manual in the box that tells you how to get up-and-running (and more) with your new device. If you're thinking about buying an LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, Motorola Moto 360 or any other Android Wear watch, you need this book... because it will help you decide which watch is right for you. From theory (about smart watches in general and Google's Android Wear in particular) to practice (with hands-on demonstrated features, tips and tricks) our warts 'n' all coverage will help you to decide which watch to buy plus how to use it when you've bought it. Like all our books at, it's an qunofficialq book because we haven't colluded with the manufacturers during the writing of the book. So we can tell it like it really is. And best of all, this first edition is a relatively cheap and definitely cheerful guide to Android Wear.
