Android Wear may soon allow its users to take calls Android Wear may soon allow its users to take calls

After recently bringing watch-to-watch sharing capabilities and support for iOS devices, Android Wear may soon offer even more cool features such as the ability to take calls directly on your wrist. The guys from Android Police studied the recently launched Android Wear and discovered a few very interesting things. According to a changelog found in the APK, the upcoming build of Android Wear will let you take calls (on wearables with a speaker), add more sounds, include new gestures and offer a better battery life. Furthermore, the next update for Android Wear will also bring support for more instant messenger clients such as WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat, Telegram or NextPlus and add more languages like Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai, Indonesian, Polish or Dutch to the OS.

Unfortunately, the current update to Android Wear doesn't bring anything as spectacular as the features that I've just mentioned. The only noteworthy novelties are the possibility to disable the tip cards and the "magical" disappearance of the battery stats. (Hopefully, Google plans to redesign them and reintroduce them in a later version of the operating system.) To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of smartwatches as I feel that they don't bring anything special to the table (not as long as they required a phone close-by in order to be fully functional) and I think they're way too pricey. However, if you would like to try one without spending too much, check out these 5 cheap alternatives to the expensive Apple Watch.
