Trulia says it will be ready with a real estate search app for Android Wear when wristwatches and other “wearable tech” devices running on the operating system hit the streets in coming weeks.

The app, featured today at Google’s I/O conference, will allow users to:

  • See new homes that come on the market near them using Trulia’s nearby home alerts feature.
  • Swipe through photos and key home details about a property from their wrist.
  • Save a property for later access from their desktop, tablet or smartphone, or contact an agent to schedule a viewing with one touch.

“As wearable tech becomes more prevalent, we believe that these devices will become key house-hunting tools given how important location and context is in the search for a home,” Kira Wampler, Trulia’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement.

Trulia was early on another Google wearable technology, Google Glass. It built a Trulia for Glass app last June to notify users when they’re near a home that meets their search criteria, let them see listing details and images by sliding their finger along the Glass headset, or listen to the device “read” out a property description.

The Trulia Glass app also allows users to call or email an agent right from the device.
