Google's smart watches are finally on sale. At the I/O developer conference in San Francisco, the company announced that both the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch would be available for pre-order in the Google Play store starting on Wednesday. They both run Android Wear, the wearables platform that Google unveiled in March. What's the big deal? David Singleton, director of engineering for Android, boasted the watches could do a lot of things: give turn-by-turn directions on a user's wrist, let people order food in less than 30 seconds and give people reminders based on their location. Not for sale: the round Moto 360 watch, which won't be on sale until later this summer.
