I have yet to wipe my drool from reading about Google’s Android Wear announcement. This news is exactly what I, as a wearable fan who has been following this industry with baited breath, was waiting for. Android Wear is very promising, but it’s also important to keep a critical and slightly skeptical approach when reading about it. Here are the reasons I am oscillating between both sentiments.
Google has just announced its intention to take over the wearables world with Android Wear — a project with which it aims to spread Android beyond smartphones, with watches being the first target. Unlike other smartwatches currently available on the market, Google aims to provide an extensive catalogue of apps on Android Wear-powered watches that will provide users with the right amount of notifications, information and answers at the right time.
