I want to talk with my friends via voice when I driving the car. But you can't use your IM on mobile to do it while you driving. So I'm wondering whether I can just speak over smartwatch via an app which can send out voice message.

Anyone have the same need?

Like a walkie-talkie on smartwatch.

When I am driving, I drive.
I see no reason to break the law, or do anything distracting.... there is nothing that can not wait until I am home, or parked.

I can take phone calls, my phone syncs with my car's On-Star System. (This is safe and hands free)

All Android Wear devices have no speaker, when you say "Samsung Gear", if you mean Gear Live (no speaker) but if you actually mean Samsung Gear you are posting in the wrong place.

I would love to have this, I go to a lot of car meets with my friends and it would be cool to have some sort of walkie talkie app to talk on.

Get a Car with BT and Car Hifi Navigation System with integrated Handsfree, It is available in most cars already,
Otherways get a Parrot Handsfree or a Car radio with Bluetooth, like Kenwood or JVC or any other brand with good car hifi radios.

Also you can buy PMR or LPD WalkiTalkis with VOX function.

How should this work with any Android Wear Device?? There is no speaker in the watches so far. Till "Knight Rider" it is still some time (watchface already available)

Cool

Any other senarior you want to use it (walkie talkie over smart watch)?

BTW, Galaxy Gear does have speaker and micphone, so it is possible to have this feature.

We are in the Android Wear Forum, so I was thinking about the 2 Watches available atm. and both have no speaker.

There are also watches available with normal Android and SIM-Slot in it, maybe thats the right choice then. But it is not Android Wear.

Also there are Walkie Talkies available that are "a watch" for small dollars on ebay. But they have no other function at all.

I'm thinking this will be fixed soon, since I hear android wear has an update coming that has to do with multiple Bluetooth devices, this would allow you to have a Bluetooth headset synced with the watch which is synced with the phone. I think it's mainly for listening to music store on watch
