With Samsung and Apple having a stranglehold on the smart phone market, Google is preparing to be a major player in the game and they are rumored to be nearing the completion of the Google Smart Watch to rival their competitors, according to a source who spoke with 9to5Google.
Here is more on the rumored device, via Mashable.com:
According to the report, the smart watch will focus on harnessing the utilities present in Google Now, the company’s software tool that acts as a kind of intelligent mobile digital assistant.
Currently, Google Now can be used on any number of Internet-connected Android and iOS devices. But a smart watch would make the most sense in terms of utilizing the software’s ability to offer predictive suggestions based on your search habits and preferences.
The final details are in flux, but Google is reportedly working on increasing the device’s battery life and adding Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
If the device is released, it could revolutionize the smart device market.
Rather than have to worry about storing your phone in your pocket and getting the screen all scratched up, you can simply go to your wrist to have everything you need with a touch of the finger.
Google representatives reportedly did not comment on the potential Google Smart Watch, so we will have to wait and see if and when the device could be announced.
