I'm with you. Although there may not be much of a need at the time I can see this come in handy when I go and pick up a Wear device and start tinkering. I can already think of a few uses for it. And you know what? Even if I fail, it's future proofing. Who knows what the future may bring with Wear devices and their restrictions/Wear skins?
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
