Smartwatches are coming as Apple seems to be prepping an iWatch while Google has already released a platform – Android Wear and its SDK for developers. Wearables are a huge category, but right now, in 2014, the concentration seems to be on smart watches.

Google’s Android Wear is a platform for the wearables and for now, wearables are being portrayed as devices where you have easier access to the notifications of your smartphone. Google have just released a video demonstrating how the notification system works on the Android Wear platform.

Google’s developer Timothy Jordan has written a post on the company’s Social network – Google+ about how notifications work on Android Wear. He has also mentioned that just by adding a few lines of code, the developers will be able to deliver richer experience to the users on their wearables.
