Google after talking about launching SDK at SxSW this year, has now announced to bring Android powered wearable—smart watches.
Company in a statement said that they are working with a number of companies including Samsung, HTC and LG to bring these devices by the end of this year.
Google has partnered with major companies, manufacturing consumer electronics, and famous brands to come up with the a new Android powered smart watch.
Enabling it with Google now, this new form factor can behave very much like a phone tied up to your wrist— but is very light and tiny in size, it can show up you the relevant information at time you need it including replies to the Google+ hangout messages, calendar, schedules and weather. Not like any other smart watch that has been launched earlier and at CES by companies including Sony and Samsung, this new form factor will be available in different shapes and sizes to fit the users’ needs.
The blog introducing it, stated, “Most of us are rarely without our smartphones in hand. These powerful supercomputers keep us connected to the world and the people we love. But we’re only at the beginning; we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible with mobile technology. That’s why we’re so excited about wearables—they understand the context of the world around you, and you can interact with them simply and efficiently, with just a glance or a spoken word.”
By the next week, Google will be providing an SDK preview for the same for the developers to develop apps for the upcoming devices. Google’s Chrome/Android SVP, Sundar Pichai at SxSW also announced that company will launch an SDK for Android wearables by the end of March’14.
While the era of wearables is just starting and there is a lot more room for innovations to be done, companies like Apple, are also looking forward to bring wearable this year. The company is rumored to launch a wrist band with a curved screen on it, and it is expected to monitor sugar level and blood pressure.
