Microsoft has worked hard to ensure that its note taking application stands out from the crowd which is why its the company’s priority to be available on every possible platform out there. Earlier this year Google unveiled the Android Wear platform which has been built from the ground up for smartwatches. As Android Wear smartwatches gradually flood the market Microsoft has decided that its time to land on people’s’ wrists.

Today it announced the launch of OneNote for Android Wear.
The OneNote for Android Wear application is available as a free download from the Google Play Store. Taking notes with this app is very simple. Just download it and start dictating the notes. Users will have to stick with dictation for now as there’s no native keyboard in Android Wear.

In order to take a note on an Android Wear smartwatch simply say out loud “OK Google, take a note”and the app will spring up in action to record whatever little flash of genius has crossed your mind.

Do keep in mind though that OneNote for Android Wear requires a smartphone that’s powered by Android 4.3 or higher. Popular Android Wear smartwatches available in the market include Motorola Moto 360, Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch.
