CNET: Samsung, Motorola and LG will launch Android Wear watches next week

Google’s video for developers gives a lot of hints at what the Android Wear experience will be like, but even with a number of smartwatches already on the market, we’re ready to see what hardware innovation is still possible. The other factor is Samsung’s internal decision between Android and its own OS, Tizen.

It’s launched Tizen-based watches, switched the original Galaxy Gear device to Tizen from Android, launched a phone with the operating system and prepared for TVs based on it.
