Google I/O is almost here, set to kick off on June 25! We have already taken a look at the official Google I/O schedule, which gives us a peek at what to expect from the developer’s conference. There’s still likely plenty of surprises in store for us, but we already know with complete certainty that at least one of the main focuses of I/O this year will be Android Wear devices.

So what specifically can we expect when it comes to Android Wear? Although we don’t have all the details, sources directly familiar with the situation tell us that the Moto 360 will be shown off at the event. As for the LG G Watch? As expected, the device is essentially a reference device for Android Wear and will not only be shown off at Google I/O, it will be given away to all those that attend Google I/O 2014 this year!

Reportedly there will also be also be at least one other manufacturer that will show off their Android Wear ambitions at I/O, aside from LG and Motorola. While we can’t confirm who this might be, we have heard whispers suggesting that it could be Asus.

Bottom-line, it’s going to be an exciting year for Google I/O and for wearables in general. What do you think, excited for Android Wear or still not completely sold on the idea?

    Excited for the smartwatches, but wondering about health concerns due to having connected devices held against your skin all day long.

      I don’t know if you mean cancer, but there’s no proof that the radiation from phones causes cancer, so why would a smartwatch cause it? And you have your phone in your pocket near you all the time too

      • xaijin

        He is referencing the bluetooth connection to your phone from the watch.

        • MasterMuffin

          And it hasn’t been proved that it does anything to you

          • Jsilvermist

            The thing is though, not being proven that it does is very different from being proven that it doesn’t.

          • MasterMuffin

            But if there’s no proof at all, it’s just stupid.

          • bel57

            That’s not stupid. We should all be concerned about this, but hey, not be worrying. I mean, just care about it. Only time will tell us if it is unhealthy.

          • MasterMuffin

            Personally I don’t care because I’ll never buy a smartwatch :)

          • bel57

            I own a Sony SW2 and it’s awesome. :)
            Got it for €90 (~$120).

          • K2

            Has it been proved that it doesnt do anything to you? You need proof for both sides of the argument.

          • MasterMuffin

            Yes actually. Millions of test that found absolutely nothing

  • Dave

    Oh my god, this is gonna be awesome!
    Can’t wait!

  • Lucas Teixeira Gouveia

    “Reportedly there will also be also be at least one other manufacturer that…”
    This means I’ll probably get a glimpse of it: a friend ia going to I/O…..yay!!!!

  • As someone that grew up with the Casio “smartwatches”, I’ve gotta say I’m super excited for all of this next generation stuff. A dream come true!

    • Serge Cebrian
