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.

Control Your Toast Notifications with SlicedToasts
Toasts are delicious, even in their Android flavor. In Android, toast doesn’t lead to a yummy sandwich, but rather a type of notification. Google decided to use these short prompts to inform about various things that are going on. For example, you may see a toast when an application is granted a superuser access.
Despite the idea behind toast notifications being great, Google has left room for big improvements in terms of implementation details. Developers didn’t like to wait, so they started to play with such details like notifications. As a result, XDA Forum Member abellujan created an Xposed module that lets you make toasts shorter than the minimum duration and longer than their default maximum. With this module, you can also disable toast notifications entirely. It’s not the biggest Xposed module available, but it might be useful for many Android users who would like a bit more control in these common UI elements.
Since this mod is being delivered as an Xposed Framework module, you need to have Xposed up and running on your device. When everything is set, apply the module and reboot your device to see the effects.
Are you quite unhappy with your current toasts notification look and feel? If so, change it in just a few steps. You can get started by visiting the SlicedToasts module thread.
