A few weeks ago, Google revealed that they have been working on a stripped down version of Android designed for wearables and especially smart watches. Android Wear is called the operating system, or rather the new interface.
We know too little to say something concrete about the initiative, if it is basically a reworked interface that is the big difference, or whether it goes beyond aesthetic changes. But personally I can already now say that Android Wear is the most interesting thing that has happened so far this year.
The reason is not the smart watches itself. The technology, we have seen before, both successful (Pebble) and less successful forms (Galaxy Gear). No, that raises my eyebrows is that Google now supports a bullish on the market in order to really reach with wearables to the crowd. So far, the LG and Motorola jumped on the bandwagon, but two single manufacturers make hardly any army.Therefore, I wait with bated breath for who should come next.Huawei? ZTE? Both Samsung and Sony are now calculated since the former embraced Tizen in its latest set of smartklockor and the other revealed that Smart Watch 3 will not be based on Android Wear LED smartwatches. In other words, it is set for surprises.
If we look at what has been announced, it is clearly Motorola’s Moto 360 that impresses the most. With that said, we have not not been told much about either the hardware or functionality for Android Wear. But a manufacturer chooses to build his design around a round dial is, to say the least, unexpected. A welcome surprise, as it provides a much needed variety in a market that has the potential to take the gadget industry by storm.
Android Wear is thus worth keeping an eye on because it represents one of the most serious smartklockor initiatives so far. But there is another aspect that makes Android Wear manages to enthrall. It sets namely pressure on Apple. As you may know, there have been rumored a Iwatch for several years now, and personally I don’t think that we’ll see a final result until next year. But with Google ready to occupy the market means that the Big Apple gets a clear main enemy in this area. And competition will lead, hopefully, to better products and ultimately happy consumers.
