Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months.

Customize How You Use Your Market With Hawkee for Android
You have and love the Android market. However, you wish that you could just look at what you need and want without having to search or dig through mountains of apps. XDA member Hawkee designed Hawkee App Delivery, which basically is an app that will remember the apps that you download and want and will group them in categories of your choosing. This will basically allow you to get the apps that you want and those that may be related to those apps that you currently have.
This is like a personal shopping assistant in the market. So, if you feel that you don’t want to brwose the market but go straight into what you need, make sure you take this for a spin. Please remember to leave feedback for the dev.
Hawkee searches the Android Market and brings new apps to you. Specify the apps you want and Hawkee delivers them. This is an app subscription tool. This app allows you to create a subscription to exactly the apps you want. Hawkee knows what apps you’ve seen and will tell you when there’s something new.
This is an exclusive beta release for XDA members only, so please do not redistribute it.
You can find more information in the application thread.
