It seems everyone is getting in on the smart watch action.
First we had Apple iWatch patents, then Samsung revealed it’s been developing a watch for the Galaxy range, and now Google’s jumping on the bandwagon.
The Financial Times reported that Google is to compete with the two other companies with its own smart watch, which will be a more mainstream wearable accessory than Google Glasses.
“While Glass is being created in its X Lab, home to experimental “moonshot” projects such as the self-driving car, Google’s smart watch is being developed by its Android unit,” a person briefed on the project told the newspaper.
The project is separate from Samsung’s, although there is no indication of when it might launch.
