If you are one of those who is buying the Android Wear based smartwatch, there is an app that would come a lot of handily. The app named Wear Aware, listed in the Google Play Store under the “Apps for Android Wear” category does a perfect job of letting the user know if he is leaving the phone behind, or is far from it.

When you had the phone on silent phone and don’t remember picking it up from a meeting, and any situation you can imagine of. When the watch can not find the phone around it, till a particular distance, there is a buzz / vibration on the watch to let you know you forget it.
