Google's Android Wear to Debut in Smartwatches

24 Mar 2014

Android Wear will soon debut in that "familiar form factor" known as the wrist watch.

The New York Times' stated that Google's announcement last week is a "pre-emptive move" against Apple into the wearable computer market, giving its hardware offering "a first claim on developing relationships with the many software partners - the apps builders - that help a gadget become popular."

To that end, it released a preview video for developers that's all blue sky and touchy-feely about devices that can provide "useful, actionable information" that it hopes a multitude of partners will help it develop. But Google already has a lot of that information itself, of course.

"Automatic, passive reminders will be sent to users via their smartwatch," points out Dante D'Orazio on The Verge. "The watches will also connect with Android smartphones so that you'll be able to get all the notifications that you want from whatever apps you have installed on your phone."
