Is buying an Android Wear smartwatch a good idea?

I bought the LG G Watch in December to try Android Wear. Android Wear is the name Google gives to its smartwatch platform. To be honest, I don't use it as much as I thought I would.

Extensions add certain functions to Chrome that are not...

Well, what else I can tell you about me, Elias Pelcastre. I was born in Mexico city, went to Sweden to meet my (other) roots and decided to study Journalism in Cardiff.
