Google has announced Android Wear, which will shrink Android onto a variety of new wearable devices. The first Android Wear-powered devices unveiled so far are the LG G Watch and Moto 360, both coming this summer. They're sharp-looking watches that show off how Google Now and other core services will work on a wrist. More details will be coming soon, but for now, take a look for yourself.

The Moto 360 has a round face, looking like a classical watch until its display transforms into a Google Now-like interface.

The LG G Watch looks to have a more traditional square-type display, but a similar UI and interface. That's the idea: Android Wear will have a consistent feel across devices.

Android Wear seems to operate a lot like a shrunken-down Google Now, complete with active voice commands.
