An Android Central reader has noticed that after updating his smartphone to Google Maps to version 9.9, a "near-fully functional Google Maps app had suddenly appeared on his Wear watch as well", reports Engadget.

The Google Maps app reportedly works just like its smartphone counterpart, with the "OK Google" voice command intact. With the app not being an official release (for now), it's not totally perfect yet, with an example of opening the Google Maps app on your Android Wear smartwatch forcing the Google Maps app on your smartphone to open, too.

We should hopefully see an official Google Maps app on Android Wear unveiled at Google I/O later this month.
