    In an effort to preemptively attack Apple's press event for the Apple Watch, earlier this morning Google shared a new teaser for their Android Wear line of smartwatches. We have included it above. As usual, it uses Google's new Android catch-phrase, "be together. not the same."

    It's short on meatiness and on time, clocking in at only 17 seconds, and including nothing but some dancing people. We aren't sure it really did much to over-shadow Apple's event, but it was probably a necessary marketing move.

    Show something it does that most don't realize instead of dancing would've worked better.

    I agree... The "this product is fun and cool" approach isn't going to cut it for me.. I want to see why I should want this product.. But we're a different breed...

    Have to agree with you guys, especially given the timing of the release. It doesn't even say Android wear anywhere. Many people don't even know that's a thing, or at least what it's called.
