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.

App to Auto-Search for LG Optimus 2x Leaks
When a device gets an OS leak, it’s usually a precursor to an official OTA update. They aren’t always good to flash, but they can give developers advanced insight as to how the next update will be or a base upon which to start working. To put it another way, when firmware is leaked, it’s like opening a Birthday present a few days early: It’s just a taste of good things to come. LG Optimus 2x owners now have an application that will automatically search for such leaks.
Released by XDA Recognized Contributor Stefan Gündhör, the tool intelligently scans LG’s websites and lets users know when a new leak has been uploaded. Obviously, this is not for the feint of heart, as you should never flash a leak until it has been deemed safe to do so. However, developers and users alike can benefit from knowing when a leak has been uploaded.
The app is very simple to use. Download it, install it, run it, and it will keep tabs on LG and let you know when something has been uploaded. Also, it is not a brute force script, thanks to XDA Forum Member marsgod.
If you’d like to keep track of the latest leaks, look no further than the original thread.
