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.

Practice Your Knife Throwing Skills
We can all agree that the creative and expansive nature of gaming allows for nearly unlimited ideas and concepts, including genres we’ve introduced in the past such as puzzle, arcade, and simulation. Of course every person has his or her own personal tastes and preferences when it comes to gaming, and if knife throwing is your thing, read on.
XDA Forum Member Leonid64 developed a game called Throwing Knife, where the aim of the game is to have some good ol’e rounds of knife throwing. There are 4 different levels, each consisting of different targets on a spinning circular board. With 20 knives comes 20 chances to hit the targets, which can be the simple colored spots on the board, the classic circular rings, the roulette wheel, or random spots scattered with a poor man tied amongst them. Game settings allow for different rotation speed, direction, as well as the standard sound, and music and vibration. A handy help screen may also be accessed, providing the player with the basics of the game and the scoring system.
Throwing Knives may not be for everybody, especially when real people are involved. However, those who enjoy such an activity or arcade and puzzle games may find Throwing Knife a staple app in their app drawer. Throwing Knife is available for all users of Android versions 2.0 and newer, and can be downloaded for free. So if this interests you, check out the original thread for more details.
