    Default Is anyone else wondering how long Google will support these watches?

    I mean really.

    Who provides the backbone support updates. Google or moto/samsung/lg and for how long? Someone should have asked at I/O

    No bloat on the devices so I'd feel it would be google plus most of the support/functions comes from the api's

    As long as manufacturers aren't skinning the OS (optional watch faces don't count), then supporting them over a longer period of time should be very doable. Still, I'd guess it'll be in the 2-3 year timeframe. We will probably see the same thing as in the early smartphone days - earlier model hardware gets outdated quickly, but after 2-3 generations a 2yr old device isn't nearly as badly outdated.
    Tablets: 2nd gen Nexus 7 32gb, 1st gen Nexus 7 16gb
    Phone: Droid MAXX
    Retired: OG Droid, Droid RAZR (RIP), Galaxy Nexus (backup phone)

    ehh, google has a history of jumping the gun too soon and giving up sometimes.

    I might wear 2-3 generations to test out the bugs so the real support can soak in
