Earlier this week we wrote a blog on Apple and Samsung working on a smart watch for release in 2013, a few days later we have LG and now Google lining up to create their own models.
From a report in the Financial Times, Google are apparently working on a Smart Watch to rival the current rumoured offerings. In the FT report they say they have a “person briefed on the project” who suggests the watch is not being made by Google X Labs (creators of Google glass) but instead by the Google Android unit.
“While Glass is being created in its X Lab, home to experimental “moonshot” projects such as the self-driving car, Google’s smart watch is being developed by its Android unit, according to a person briefed on the project, to act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system. The project is separate from Samsung’s efforts, the source said, although there is no indication of when it might launch.” – FT
Looks like the smart watch wars could be heating up nicely.
