Google have announced they will have complete control over the interface of Android Wear, Auto and TV, meaning no third party manufacturer will have the option of creating their own version of the software (Like TouchWiz or Optimus UI). The principle benefit of this for consumers is that functionality will remain consistent across all devices no matter what brand, so updates should all come together at the same time. The downside is that you will be locked to the stock Android interface when you make the purchase (though user mods are sure to start appearing in time).
Do you think this is a good thing? Should Google keep control of all versions of Android, including those that appear on smartphones?
