One of the newest trends in the technological world is wearable tech. One such piece of wearable tech that has become very popular and is being produced by multiple companies are smart watches. There are watches like the Pebble and Meta smart watches that are incredibly popular and then there are companies like Apple and Samsung that are rumored to be making their own watches. According the Financial Times, Google is now throwing in their own name into the smart watch market.
Google’s watch is suppose to “act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system.” It is also reported that Google’s project is not in conjunction with Samsung’s project; this is something that Google is doing on their own.
With projects like this, Glass, Chromebook Pixel, and the Nexus Q, it looks like Google wants to start creating their own hardware to compete with other companies, producing top of the line products.
UPDATE: More rumors are going around that it is the Android Team that is creating the watch, not the Google X department who has been producing Google Glass.
