The final Preview version of Android Wear 2.0 becomes available after several months of development and after even more months of delays from Google. According to the change log of this fifth (and final) Preview, it now offers full iOS compatibility, better battery performance for most Android Wear smartwatches and improved connectivity.

Google is also urging developers to install the latest Preview, compile their new programs and submit them to the Play Store for approval. This means that the official Android Wear 2.0 release won’t be too long before it happens.

    Hopefully, now that it’s 2017 we can state the obvious: SmartWatches are useless.

    Despite all the hype we need them for exactly nothing.

    If this was $35 I might buy it. Until then, these are gift items destined for sitting on shelves.
