Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

Android App Mount Manager – Device Mounts Manager
Thanks to XDA member camalot for developing Device Mounts Manager. DMM is a file systems manager, as you can see from the original post, it is quite useful and extensive in what it does. It can be used for CIFS file shares on the network and much more. Here is the original post by camalot:
I’ve released the first version of Mount Manager, a tool to manage your CIFS shares and other mount points on your device.
Requires kernel w/ CIFS support or the Modules for your kernel
busybox recommended, no longer required.
It supports loading of multiple modules, like on the vibrant with froyo, in order to enable cifs support, you have to load both slow-work.ko and cifs.ko.
Modules can be set to automatically load when the device boots, when the application starts or they can be “forced”
The cifs mounts can also be set to auto mount when the device boots, when the application starts or when connected to wifi.
It displays the used, free and total space on the mount point. View all the mount points on the device and their information.
Open mount points in external file explorers like Astro File Manager, ES File Explorer or AndExplorer.
The app is very well made and looks great! We reccomend that you try it out and leave feedback for the developer in the discussion thread. Enjoy!
