Google’s Android Wear smartwatch app lets you watch sporting events, movies and other entertainment on the go using a dedicated Android app.
The Watch Direct beta program allows users to download the watch and connect to a smartphone or tablet, but users who aren’t yet ready to try out Watch Direct on their smartwatch won’t have access until the company’s next public beta.
It’s the first time that Google’s watch has officially been made available to consumers outside of the company, and the announcement comes less than a month after the watch first debuted.
Watch Direct is available for $10 per month for a six-month subscription, and it supports Google’s other smartwatch platforms like the Moto 360, Google Glass, the Pebble Time and the Moto X. WatchDirect is compatible with any Android Wear device running Android 4.4 KitKat or later, which means it’s compatible with almost all Android Wear watches, including the Moto E, LG G Watch R, LG Watch Urbane and the Huawei Watch.
If you want to try it out for yourself, watch the full video above.
