Microsoft app Torque allows Android Wear users to access Bing with a twist of the wrist
Just because you own an Android Wear powered smartwatch doesn't mean that you can't use Bing for your search needs. In fact, Microsoft has devised a product called the Bing Torque, that allows you to access Bing with a twist of the wrist. It's almost like having Cortana on your arm. Twist your wrist and ask away. Find out what the weather forecast is, the score of the Miami Heat game, prices of stocks in your portfolio, or the answer to other questions. And instead of uttering "Okay, Google," all you need to do is twist your wrist.

Torque is a free download, available from the Microsoft Garage group, which is made up of interns, artists, tinkerers and inventors. This group is supposed to turn ideas into projects. And as we know, some of America's greatest corporations and ideas came out of a garage.

While Torque works great on LG and Samsung branded Android Wear timepieces, it has issues with the sensors on the Motorola Moto 360. You can check out the app by clicking on the video below. When you're ready to install Torque, you should head to the Google Play Store.
