Wearable Widgets lets you push your widgets to Android Wear
One of the most exciting parts about Android is you are never stuck with the out-of-the-box experience. Don’t like something? There’s apps, launchers, mods and so many other methods that can enhance or completely change your experience for the better. While Android Wear might be in its early days, it seems that this same spirit lives on in Google’s wearable-oriented OS as well.
We’ve already seen a developer deliver a custom ROM for the LG G Watch and now, thanks to an updated version of Wearable Widgets, you to push any Android widget over to your Android Wear watch. For those that haven’t heard of Wearable Widgets, the app previously supported only Google Glass and the Sony SmartWatch series.
How does it work? Simply put, the Wearable Widgets card on your watch will let you choose from a list of widgets, and the watch will then communicate with your connected smartphone to fetch the widget of your choice. The only catch here is that you can only add one widget with the free version and so you’ll have to purchase the full experience in-app for $1.99 if you want to add more than one widget to your watch.
Currently Android Wear and the devices that run on it are very much 1st-gen products, but it’s becoming pretty obvious that the platform has a lot of potential and will only grow better in time thanks to Google, its partnering OEMs, developers and the Android modding community.
