It's true that smartwatches have not taken hold of too many wrists yet, but that isn't stopping developers from trying. Two companies launched smartwatches Monday that use the Android Wear platform. Samsung released the Gear Live and LG is out with the G Watch.
Google is also partnering with Motorola, HTC and Fossil, all due out with smartwatches at a later date.
The Android operating system is Google's first effort in the smartwatch space.
