Pocket for Android Wear lets you save articles on smartwatches

Pocket, a read-it-later service has announced a prototype for the Android Wear’s OS that lets you save links directly from your smartwatch. The watch will now be able to save content to your Pocket content without ever having to touch your smartphone.

Pocket for Android Wear lets you save articles on smartwatches

An SDK has been made available to developers which will allow them to save save notifications on a watch. However you must follow Android’s UI guidelines for wearables.

Imagine your friend sends you an interesting article. Your Android Wear smartwatch gets an alert and you think, “Hmm, I’d really love to read that on my commute later.” You swipe, and an action pops up to save to Pocket. In a single tap, the article immediately becomes accessible in your list for whenever you have the time to go back and read it.

SDK of Android Wear is in Developer Preview and there might be little bugs here and here. So this should be considered a work in progress.
