Google might be putting finishing touches on a smartwatch running Google Now
2013 may be ‘the year of the smartwatch’ since the parts has gotten small and cheap enough and the wearable technology is extremely popular and welcomed all over the globe. In September, leading companies such as Samsung and Sony launched their smartwatch gear for the purpose of enabling users to leave their handsets in their pockets thanks to the directional speaker for phone calls. Google’s time is now for releasing such gear soon. This type of innovation is exactly what is needed in the smartwatch market, so Google might be already putting the final touches on such product built around Google Now service, as the 9to5Google reports.
The gear will run a Google Now version suited for a smaller display and that will happen ‘sooner than later’, probably by the end of the month in conjunction with the popularized Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5. It’s not a secret why would anyone be hyper about a Google Now watch due to the fact that already released smartwatches can’t impress the users with their limited notification abilities and poor interface. We believe that Google Now will take that concept and take it to an entirely new level. Instead of simply using a modern take on a smaller screen, like other smartwatches do, the Google Now will offer to move contextual data off the phone to a wearable gear as the useful information will simply appear and that is definitely more appealing. It’s a fact that with Google Now you will get your notifications without pulling out your smartphone due to the utilized Search in a clean way that makes much more sense. It also specializes in voice commands so you may ask for directions by just saying it out loud. And that’s not all- the software will be completely light with Bluetooth connectivity and will tell you everything you need.
This desirable product running Google Now is still not available for developers; however the audience is ready for a new wearable display with the codename Gem. Google might soon bless us with their genius piece of kit.
