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.

XDA TV – Ish Looking Boot Animation for Android
There are various boot animations out there for our Android devices and they are all fantastic. However, they don’t really show the love and devotion that you have for your favorite online community. Well, thanks to XDA member HJ200, you can now sport the colors, logo, and a bit of animation like that of our Youtube channel, XDA TV. The animation is 100% original artwork for the XDA TV intro, as the files (in psd format) used to create this were provided by azrienoch himself to the dev. This is a really good job and goes hand in hand with the wallpaper thread that he made as well (link below if you are interested).
So, what are you waiting for? You love XDA and you love your device, so go out there and show the world that the two of them together do indeed make a nice looking phone! Please leave some feedback for the dev as well.
After publishing the wallpaper azrienoch provided the original XDA TV intro .psd files, so I could upload the original. Instead of a wallpaper I created a bootanimation for Android, so here it is;
The bootanimation is created for 480×800 devices, but if you prefer any other resolution feel free to ask for it.
Update: added 600×1024 version for Galaxy Tab (untested)
You can find more information in the original thread.
