    Android Wear is Google's new version of Android designed for wearable devices, most notably the upcoming Android watches like the LG G Watch and the Moto 360. Despite Google's fairly recent announcement of Android Wear, we haven't really seen much of the OS just yet. Luckily, a Googler was obviously given permission to share a bit more.

    That brings us to the above pics, which show off the Android Wear Notifications. As you can see, we get a variety of different notification types, from your typical Google Calendar reminder to a playback from a podcast. There's even a notification to have your Nest thermostat let you know when there is a potential fire in your house!

    It's quite intriguing to see how Google plans to fit the notification onto the smaller screen of a watch or other wearable. On top of this, it will apparently be very easy for third party developers to add in their own custom notifications for Android Wear. Very slick!
