    Good points to think about PC. . I think price is another factor. I have never thought that any Android Wear watch (or iWatch) is worth the price. Over the three years I have been wearing AW watches I have received a lot of questions about what it is, what can it do, etc. Then most people say "I just can't afford to spend that much money on a watch".

    While holding a $5.00 Starbucks in there hand.

    I guess I'm fortunate, I don't find the $250-$350 price to be too bad. I am at the point I hate being without it, especially at work. I am in construction and answer 90% of my calls via the watch and go grab the phone if I don't want others to hear what I'm talking about.

    Looks like Google intentionally removed the Android Wear page from their Store and is now letting Amazon manage it at the new Amazon Android Wear store. As Google put it this will allow them to "reach more customers than ever.. "

    Couldn't have said it better. I wear my Huawei watch everyday. Love the face variety, and notifications. I prefer uncluttered watch faces.
