With companies such as Samsung and Sony making smart-watches, it seems as though Google may be “jumping on the bandwagon” as well.
It is rumored that the Google Watch, which may be called the Google Gem, will be released by the end of the month and may use Google Now style card interfaces. We can see from a patent Google filed earlier this year that the smart-watch will feature:
a wristband, a base, a battery and a first auxiliary component. The wristband can include a voltage line. The base can be coupled to the wristband and include a housing, a processor, and a wireless transceiver in communication with the processor. The wireless transceiver can be configured to connect to a wireless network. The battery can be coupled to the housing and be in communication with the processor and the voltage line. The first auxiliary component can be coupled to the wristband in communication with the voltage line and be powered by the battery.
It is also believed that the watch may run on a customised version of Android 4.4 KitKat, with Google Now being at the very centre of everything you do on it. This could work quite well, with you being able to see your latest text messages and emails in the card-style interface Google Now uses.
