Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Hi, do you know where we can go to look at Android Wear devices in person? I really want to get one, but I’m worried they’re still very clunky.


Hi Murray, which watches do you have your eye on? Some are sold via retailers, but not all models.


I really wanted to see the Moto 360, LG Watch R or LG Watch Urbane… I’ve seen the Samsung tizen watch in person, but only Android Wear on the LG Watch R while in Japan last month… but even that was hard to find.

Any help would be appreciated. I’m based in Sydney but down in Melbourne frequently.


I requested an invite. I don’t design, or develop Android Wear, I don’t even own Android Wear. I wonder how this will turn out. Will be sure to let you guys know! hah
