    Apart from the Sony Smart Watch 3 - Is anyone aware of any other Android Wear devices planned which have GPS built in?

    Not Android Wear either but the Microsoft Band has built in GPS and works on all platforms. It obviously won't have the entire functionality you'll find in an Android smart watch, more geared toward fitness with standard smart watch capabilities (i.e. notifications). How do you plan to use it?

    I had a look at the Microsoft Band and liked what I read, however it appears its best worn on the inside of your wrist -which is a big no no for me!

    Ive got a Pebble at the moment, so want something with notifications. Im also a runner so something with GPS and also music ability.

    I was quite interested in the Basis Peak, however that does not have GPS.

    I think if the Sony SmartWatch 3 had a heart rate monitor, I would have purchased it in an instant. At the moment im just waiting to see what else comes out - Im guessing now we have the first Android Wear with GPS - there will hopefully be a huge influx of devices from other manufacturers.
