According to rumours circulating online, Google is joining the likes of Apple & Samsung by creating their very own smart-watch. The wearable is said to join the likes of Google’s “talking shoes” and their Google Glass.
The rumours suggest that Google’s Android team is working on a smart-watch, a product for which they received a patent last year. The patent describes a smart-watch with a camera and a flip-up screen to show private information to the user. A touchscreen is included covering 75% of the watch’s surface and it is said to include a camera that is activated when the watch is flipped open. GPS capabilities are also described.
It seems like Google might just be onto something here as Apple and Samsung are looking into the same technology and Sony keeps updating their offerings. Google Glasses or a Google Watch, which do you prefer?
