An­droid Wear: the fu­ture of smart­watches?

Australian T3 - - RATED -

While there’s a lot of hype for Ap­ple’s much-ex­pected en­try into the wrist-tech mar­ket, Google’s al­ready mov­ing the goal­posts with its new An­droid Wear op­er­at­ing sys­tem, de­signed specif­i­cally for wear­able tech. It makes good use of con­text-sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion via Google Now and the big G even sug­gests that the tech­nol­ogy will help al­le­vi­ate our ad­dic­tion to smart­phones by pre­dict­ing the in­for­ma­tion we most need to see, mak­ing check­ing your phone con­stantly un­nec­es­sary (yeah, we’ll see). Mo­torola’s cir­cu­lar Moto 360 con­cept and LG’s square G Watch are the first de­vices to sport the colourful, sim­pli­fied OS, but Sam­sung, HTC, Asus and Fos­sil have all con­firmed that they’re work­ing on de­vices. Ex­pect more info at the Google I/O 2014 con­fer­ence.
