    Browsing the interweb today as I often do, I came across an article saying that AccuWeather has added full android wear support, making their Android wear app actually interactive & in my opinion, much handier than relying on Google now.

    I lost the article in the process of installing the app & trying it for myself, so without further ado, I present you with my first look video of this functionality in action.

    That was an excellent review and an even better first review video. You really set the bar for the next daring soul to attempt their own video review.

    I wish I had done one already so I wouldn't feel so intimidated now!

    Not that it's the coolest thing ever, but it's moving more towards the kind of interactive functionality that I'm pretty sure we all want in these devices.

    Like I said in the video, I'm not very demanding from my weather app & I've actually used accuweather from time to time more than once, but having a bit now info about the day without pulling my phone out might keep me using it longer this time.

    Also, I was going to just make a pay with screen shots, but I decided to try my hand at this.

    My camera setup was my note 4 perched on a guitar stand that just happened to be at the right angle. Lighting was an overhead bulb with no cover & a table lamp with the shade off.

    One caveat to this update. It says "data unavailable" if you haven't checked accuweather on your phone lately. Hope they work that out in a future update.
