What is the key difference between Android Wear OS and android for phone ?
Does the underlying kernel also changes for the same ?
Is there any development platform at cheaper price to get started with porting of the Android Wear OS ?
Thanks for the detailed reply.
I already made my peripheral working with Android.
May I know which of the TI SoC's are supporting the same ?
Also does it worth to experiment the same with wearables running Android Wear OS in the current market like wear watch ?
Does any of the wear watch contains USB OTG facility to test it ?
The Moto360 watch is one that uses the TI OMAP3.

I've seen a few articles on fashioning a USB connection to the slightly hidden D+ D- Vcc GND pins for USB and this one makes me believe there is also an ID pin you can attach.

You can probably verify if the watch has USB host drivers installed before you go to the trouble of hooking up the ID pin though. Either that or find a dev board with an OMAP3 if that is the SoC you want to use. I'm at a conference at the moment (you might be here too?) so I don't have an ID pin/OTG USB cable on me but when I get home next week, I could dry one with my Snapdragon based watch. Best of luck in your research,
Thats great info.
Unfortunately I am not on any conference as of now.
If any of the watch is with ADB facility and ability to root it, then I am fine on buying it.
Now on I am eagerly waiting for your response on the QC's snapdaragon based watch.
It turns out, I've written a blog on using ADB to root an LG G watch to install our gatord driver.

There are, however, many different Android Wear watches running the same SoC with USB charging ports broken out.

My method should work on all of them. Do a little research on each of them and their SoCs and features and find out which one works best for you.
Does any of the above contains USB host functionality as well ?
