A more powerful email app for Google's smartwatch OS

Microsoft

Microsoft's Outlook email app now has a dedicated Android Wear client. Once downloaded, you'll be able to reply with pre-set messages or dictate a response with voice instead of relying only on default smartwatch commands. You can also scroll to see more email content in the notification window.

It's not a game-changer by any means, but it is one of the rare dedicated apps to come out for Android Wear of late. Google's wrist-based OS, which has a smartwatch market share of about 15 percent, doesn't get too much attention. So Microsoft's upgrade for one of the best third-party email apps out there should be welcome, especially for those who prefer to try and get the most utility out of their device without having to take their phone out.
