Now, almost after two years, this is turning into reality. We say this as one of the recent reports suggest that Uber is now accessible even from the wrist. The Android Wear 2.0-powered devices will include the support for the cab hailing service.

The worrying part is Uber is exclusive only to the latest iteration of Android Wear. The users of wearables based on the older versions of the platform will not be able to enjoy this feature. Moreover, Uber will be a standalone app that can work without a companion app or a tethered mobile phone.
