Google releases four new Android Wear ads ahead of Moto 360 launch

At this point, Motorola’s upcoming Moto 360 is the only Android Wear-powered smartwatch we’ve seen that people are actually excited for.

The first part of its effort involves four new ads that show off various Android Wear watches and their capabilities. More →
