Android Wear to support iHeartRadio app
Next week, those with an Android handset, the iHeartRadio app, and an Android Wear powered smartwatch, will be able to use their voice to control the music listening experience. Using the watch and a paired Android smartphone, the user will be able to verbally search through 1900 live radio stations. All you need to do is say the name of the station you want to listen to. If you want to create a station around an artist, just say the name of the act.

With your Android Wear device, you will have quick access to saved stations or shows. Receive recommendations based on your favorite on-air shows and genre of music. And from your wrist, you can give a song the ol' thumbs up or thumbs down. This way, the app can hone in on the artists and songs you like to hear, to provide you with a play list more suited to your tastes.

This feature will be available to iHeartRadio fans starting on October 15th. Watches that support Android Wear include the Motorola Moto 360, the LG G Watch, and the Samsung Gear Live.

Android Wear just keeps on getting better and better all the time. Now if I can only get a Moto 360. I still can't get one where I live.

I'm most interested in a "smart" watch that doesn't rely on a phone. For example, I'd like to have calendar-based reminders run on the phone itself.
