Google want to make wearables more 'connected' so owners don't need to carry their phone around with them. The new version of Google's Android Wear smartwatch platform will enable hardware OEMs such as Sony and app developers to build more features that do not rely on a phone to work.
For example, location updates can be sent directly to all new Google-powered devices, and music can be synced without the need to pair the device with a mobile phone.
One of the first smart phones to be powered by Google's latest version of Android Wear is the Sony Smart Watch 3. The device is already available to purchase in the States from Verizon and in the UK from Clove.
