These apps need to be installed on your Android phone before they can be installed on Android Wear devices. Users cannot install apps on Android smartwatches independently of the phone.

The LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live, the first devices released that run Android Wear, have received mixed reviews. Many, including me, are waiting for the Moto 360 (and the iWatch) to come out. Microsoft is reportedly planning to launch an iPhone and Android compatible fitness wristband later this fall.

Mobile ad exchange TapSense has already announced ad support for wearables.
