One of the things you can’t do with Android Wear smartwatches is to surf the internet as cramped and unsuitable it might seem to do on a small screen. Wear Internet Browser changes that using the connection between your smartphone and smartwatch to serve up internet access pulling in your bookmarks and web history.

Setup does take roughly five minutes and when it finally launches does take quite long to load pages. When they do load you’ll get a normal-looking webpage formatted to the screen that’s perfectly readable with support for pinch and zoom gestures. Adverts do however have a habit of eating into some of the page at the bottom. Swiping right brings up bookmarks but without a keyboard you are relying on launching websites from the smartphone app. It definitely needs work but as a way of bringing browsing to Android Wear, it’s a good start.
