The company also revealed it is working with giant consumer electronics brands like Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC, and Asus on developing Android Wear devices. Google has also reached out to chip makers like Intel, Qualcomm, and Broadcom, as well as fashion brands such as Fossil Group.

One example of this is the Moto 360. Available this summer, the device appears like a wristwatch with a round face, except that it runs programs aside from telling time. Its band comes in a dark metal finish, although users can also opt for a gray leather strap.
