Android Wear Will Soon Get Offline Music Playback, GPS Support And Downloadable Watch Faces

We’ve already seen a flurry of announcements around Android Wear hardware this week, but Google also has some software updates in the works that it will release over the course of the next few months. As the company announced today, a first update will bring offline music playback and GPS support to Android Wear. A second update later in the year will also enable downloadable watch faces. With offline music playback, users will be able to listen to music that is stored directly on the watch with the help of Bluetooth headphones. How exactly you will get your music onto the watch (and whether apps like Spotify will be able to support this feature) remains to be seen.
