Android Wear: The first try

The first thing to do is update de Android SDK, install the software and download the preview app (it is quite easy if you follow the instructions of the Google website). With all the stuff running, you can try to compile the examples to see the behavior of the new Android Wear.

My first impression is that the functionalities are currently very limited, as far I can see  it only seems to work as a wearable  notifications display, and allows to show custom and dynamic itemset content into the device.
