Android Wear will reportedly let you navigate with a flick of the wrist

Moto 360

Right now, the only ways to get around Android Wear are to use your voice or swipe your fingers. What if you’d rather not talk to your smartwatch, and don’t have a hand free? You may have another option soon. A source for The Verge claims that a future Android Wear update will add gesture control — you’ll just have to flick your wrist to switch through cards, so you can check the weather even if your hands are full. There’s also talk of WiFi support in the next release, so you won’t have to stay close to your phone to get alerts if you have a suitably equipped wearable. It’s not certain just when these upgrades would hit (assuming they’re real, of course), but they could be worth the wait if you’re a Google watch devotee.
