Is it really Christmas Eve already? It must be, since Google’s Santa Tracker goes live today at 2 p.m. PT. This year, there’s a new way to watch for Mr. Claus: Right from your wrist using an Android Wear smartwatch.

Of course, the usual methods to track Santa are all still available too. Have the kids hit https://santatracker.google.com/ from any browser, for example, or if you have a [company]Google[/company] Android phone or tablet, you can download the free Santa Tracker app from the Google Play Store. And you can even use a Chromecast to mirror that Android app to the big screen — helpful for when you can’t take the ol’ yule log programming any longer.

Google’s Santa Tracker app also includes some extras to keep you occupied while waiting: Games to guide the elves though a maze, fly on a jetpack to retrieve gifts and more.
