Google has updated Google Maps for Android Wear to provide a better navigation experience for everyone. The purpose of this update is to make it easier to navigate to where you need to go, without ever taking your phone out of your pocket. The latest update also has integrations with a few different popular apps that work with Google Maps.

As you stroll through a neighborhood, Foursquare will make sure you won’t walk by and miss a restaurant’s legendary burrito. And TripAdvisor will tell you about the city’s best comedy club that you should visit now (or save for tomorrow night, directly from your watch). You’ll blend right in with the locals as you expertly navigate a new city’s public transport with Citymapper’s step-by-step directions right on your wrist.

No matter how caught up you get in your adventures, be sure to take the time to check-in with your loved ones. With Glympse on Android Wear, you won’t even need to take out your phone! And should your vacation inspire bigger life changes, use Trulia or Zillow to glance at all the home sale listings in your new, beloved neighborhood.

  1. Hello,
    Does the map rotate when you take a turn or is it always north facing up? It’s bit confusing because moto360 and LG watch R seems to be always north facing but owners of the LG Urbane and sony watches say that the map rotates when you move around. Can you clarify this?
