Your app’s notifications will already appear on Android wearables.
With the new Android Wear APIs you can customize and extend those notifications.

Receive Voice Replies
Add actions to your notifications to allow users to reply by voice or touch. The system delivers the text to your app on the phone.
Add Notification Pages
Add additional pages to your notification that are visible on the wearable device to provide detailed information on the wrist.
Stack Multiple Notifications
Your app should consolidate similar notifications. On a wearable, you can stack them together so the details for each are immediately available.

You can also trigger your notifications contextually using existing Android APIs. For example, use geofences to provide glanceable information to your users when they are at home, or use the activity detection APIs to send messages to your users’ wrists while they are bicycling.
See the Android Wear Developer Preview Design Principles for more suggestions on creating great wearable experiences.
