Android Wear has attracted a number of top OEMs to develop android watch under their brand name. Some of these are Motorola, Sony, Huawei, Fossil, Tag Heuer and many others. All of these offer a different visual feel to the users.
Watch brands have their own set of loyal users who prefer the typical dials that comes from their respective brands. And this is what makes android wear special. Every manufacturer is giving their own UI skins. While Sony gives a fresh UI, Fossil and Tag have mimicked their classic circular dial on Android Wear. Personal choice about looks and brand dominates the watch market and Android wear is giving people exactly that, digitally.
Apps for Android wear run directly on the device and can make use of its hardware and sensors. A lot of apps for Android Wear are often bundled along with the mobile app itself. Once the watch is paired with your Android Smartphone, the app will automatically start functioning and start sending notifications (if programmed to do so).
Fundamentally, the Android wear is suited best for the simplest actions for which unlocking the Smartphone every time is cumbersome.
