In this short and sweet book our aim is to tell you what you need to know – and no more – in order to choose and use an Android Wear smartwatch. Yes, you’ll find some of the same information scattered around the World Wide Web, but here we’ve brought it all together into one very readable reference guide.
It’s an “unofficial” book not because we divulge any amazing revelations about Android Wear, but because we wrote it completely independently without influence from the technology vendors. So where necessary, we can say what we really think, warts ‘n’ all.
