Additionally, Google's app repository now comes with a dedicated section, which comprises a number of curated apps that fully support the new platform.

I am going to really enjoy watching Wear evolve and grow. I think wearable tech, voice commands, and home automation are really going to explode onto the scene in the next couple of years.

Best app for running. PERIOD
I will most likely be running a 10k race next month. Thanks to improvements and feedback from runtastic.

You like runtastic better than runkeeper? What do you like better? I have not used runtastic since it does not allow interval or pace training without buying the pro version.

I haven't really tried runkeeper but here's how I think runtastic is better:
1. Runtastic pro (paid version) offer intervals as you mentioned
2. It even records elevation.
3. You can pre-plan your running route.
4. You get much more detailed analysis online.
5. There are few pre-designed running program by athletes which helps you increase your pace at their website.
I got the pro version off amazon. It was app of the day so free :)) Also what do you mean by pace training ?

Unfortunately I missed that amazon promotion or I'd have that too! Pace training is when you set the app to keep you running at a specified speed. For instance, if you want to run 8 minute miles the app will will remind you every so often that you are ahead or behind that pace (overall) and by how much.

hmmm....that seems a very good feature to have. I'll give runkeeper a go too. Thanks.
