Eager wearable developers can now get their hands on the source code for Android Wear devices, or at least part of it, as Google has uploaded version 4.4w_r1 of the wearable code to the AOSP repository. However, this is only a partial release related to GPL projects for devices which are currently shipping, much like what we have seen with the Android L developer preview.

Files for this new release can be found under the android-4.4w_r1 tag in the repository. Active development branches of the wearable code can be found under the kitkat-wear directory, hence 4.4w, which is where future patches and minor updates will be placed. Speaking of which, we can probably expect a number of changes to the wearable code as Google works out the bugs and kinks of its new platform.

In addition, Kernel sources for the LG G Watch (Dory) and Samsung Gear Live (Sprat) have also appeared in the directly for download, which might help out developers looking to work with these particular smartwatches.

Although this is only a partial release of the full code, Bill Yi has explained that Google will be making a full platform push for Android’s next milestone release, Android L, which will offer developers much more to work with.

The release of the full Android Wear source code, expected around the launch of Android L later this year, will open up the platform to developers wishing delve into the finer details. It’s going to be interesting to see what developers can find to tweak and what new ideas they can pull from the code.
