Pinterest wants to be on your new Android Wear smartwatch

Pin a place and it'll alert you when you're walking nearby

Android Wear is the in thing at the moment.

Motorola, Samsung and LG have shown off smartwatches running on the wearable tech OS at Google I/O (if you didn’t already know), and software developers are racing to show off Android Wear's features. 

Less than 24 hours ago, Google launched a software development kit (SDK) for Android Wear at the I/O Conference, which enables developers to make Android Wear-specific apps.

Picture-tagging service Pinterest is one of the first out of the gate, wasting no time in revealing that it will update its Android app to add Android Wear compatibilty.

It's all about Android Wear

How Pinterest for Android Wear works is very simple. Tag a place in the app, and it'll automatically prompt you when you're near it, on your Android tablet, smartphone, or smartwatch. It’ll even give you directions to the pinned location as you approach it.

The version 3.0 update will be available on the Play Store sometime today; though unless you're one of the lucky developers at Google I/O who snaffled a Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch, you'll just have to wait until you can take advantage of its features. The rest of you will just have to content yourself with pre-ordering an Android Wear smartwatch.
