I had a demo of an alternative manufacturer's device the other day. Although it looked a little large on the wrist, it did look less weird than Google Glass.

Google Inc's smartwatch is in late-stage development and the company is in talks with Asian suppliers to begin mass production of the device, people familiar with the matter said. Report: Google's Smartwatch Getting Nearer Production [online.wsj.com]
The new device, which will run on Android, will be integrated with Google Now, the company's intelligent personal assistant that can answer questions, make recommendations and predict what information users need based on what they are doing, a person familiar with the situation said. Google has also been working to reduce power consumption on the smartwatch so it won't require frequent battery charges, the person said.
