Sad that HTC's Grip and LG's Watch Urbane are not running Android Wear. Fortunately, the Huawei Watch is.

There is a reason, and it's not entirely the fault of HTC and LG. https://sterlingudell.wordpress.com/2015/03/02/what-were-they-thinking/

JUnit 4 support finally!
 
Espresso 2.0 is here!

A release is never too late, nor is it too early. It arrives precisely when it’s meant to.” That being said, we would like to apologize for such a long wait. Part of the delay was caused by work that ensures that this does not happen again.

Espresso 2.0 is packed with new features[0], but perhaps the most important change is that Espresso is now part of the Android Support Library and available in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) soon. This will make it easier for you to contribute to future releases.

With this release, we would also like to introduce the new AndroidJUnitRunner[1], which contains all the functionality of GoogleInstrumentationTestRunner and adds extra features[2], including Junit4 support.

Although this is an API-breaking release (hence the major version bump), we do not expect the majority of projects to be affected by anything other than the package name change.

We have added a new set of individual sample projects, available on GitHub[3], to make it easier for you to learn about the new features and get started with Espresso.

Documentation[4,5] and Javadocs[6,7,8] are still hosted on android-test-kit, but will move to d.android.com in early 2015.

We hope that you enjoy the new Espresso experience and look forward to your feedback and contributions.

Happy holidays and happy testing!

Have a presentation on Wear at #ModevCon and there is this Kate breaking news about watch faces and a face API. Things sure are happening in the Wear world!
 
The update for Android Wear to 5.0 is now rolling out to watches, and we are pleased to announce that the official Android Wear Watch Face API is now available for developers. With support for custom watch faces, users have even more ways to personalize their watches, and developers have the ability to create all kinds of new experiences. For more information, including how watch faces work and how to deploy them, check out the blog post by +Wayne Piekarski at http://goo.gl/eJvubC and the video below by +Timothy Jordan

It would be great to see a Glass hardware refresh. Intel is making some bold moves if this is true.
Intel will supply the electronic brains for a new version of Google’s Glass device expected next year, replacing Texas Instruments processors, in a push by the semiconductor giant into wearable technology.

+Xavier Ducrohet​ just announced this in the Deep Dive into Gradle session at AnDevCon and received a big round of applause from the audience.
 
We're getting close: Release candidate 1 for Android Studio 1.0 is now available in the canary channel. Please give it a try and let us know of any blocker bugs. In this build, other than bug fixes and updated logos and final settings directories, we've also added an offline Maven repository for the Gradle plugin such that it can be bootstrapped without a network connection.

For full details, see

Can't wait to ride in a Skynet Marshmallow Bumper Bot (via +Android Central) http://theoatmeal.com/blog/google_self_driving_car It'd be perfect for 25mph max Falls Church City.

Great to see another DevBytes. Love this series.
It is interesting to me how similar an Android Wear Watch Face is similar in construction to a Google Glass High Frequency Live Card.
 
Go deeper with the watch face API. In this #DevByte  from +Hoi Lam, learn three straightforward steps to build your own.  For more info, check out last week's blog post. goo.gl/eJvubC

It looks like +Chiu-Ki Chan 's great #AnDevCon presentations smartly feature her Twitter and Google+ names to make it easy to follow her. I think I'm going to borrow that for my future slides.
