    Default Where does Nexus and Android Wear meet?

    Nexus has been the tool Google uses to move android forward and where they want developers to go further. However the Nexus ecosystem has stayed in only two platforms. The two platforms have been smart phones and tablets. So where does Android Wear and Nexus idea meet?

    Google is working on watch but I not sure it will be a Nexus Product simply because Google may have a different development strategy for Android Wear that the Nexus program does not work.

    What your guys thoughts and questions on this topic.

    My thoughts

    Google has many Android projects like Chromebooks, Chrome Cast, Google TV and Google Glas however neither one of those projects involve the Nexus idea. The reason for this I believe is Google's Nexus strategy for phones and tablets won't work for their other projects because of demand. When the demand in particular tech segment is low it's hard to make device to lead charge when demand is giving you no direction to go. This answer why android versions are so speratic in other Google projects because they are updated as market needs. Android phone and tablet is always growing the Nexus strategy makes sense. If Android wear can duplicate what android did to smart phones then Nexus watch inevitable.

    At this point anything is possible. Will we something branded as a Nexus wearable anytime soon? Not sure. I think we need to see what the first wave of wearable devices bring and how well these devices are supported.

    I sincerely doubt a Nexus branded watch will make it to market.

    Why? Do you mean specifically a "nexus" watch or do you think Google will make non nexus watch?

    I feel Google will make watch but it wouldn't have to necessarily be a nexus watch.

    I'm not ruling a Google watch out, but I'd be a little surprised. Nexus label is right out.

    I don't think a "Nexus" watch is necessary.

    Google doesn't need to lead the android smart watch market like they do with the android smart phone market?

    Android phones with Google services existed before the Nexus One.

    Yes but did Nexus devices didn't influence a change in android smartphone market?

    So are Nexus original purpose as halo or lead devices irrelevant?
