Google Joins The Race of Smartwatches

As the world market of smartphones is showing signs of saturation-the growth rate should fall from 27% in 2013, to 9.8% by 2017, according to Bloomberg, the largest companies in the industry are beginning to indicate that the next bet is the “computer to wear”.

Samsung said recently that develops a long time a “smart clock”. Apple, according to people close to the company, has 100 designers working on a product for the pulse will have functions similar to those of an iPhone. Now, Google, according to the Financial Times, is another giant who also want to sell.

The paper said, citing a source, that the smart of Google Watch is being developed in Android, the platform name of company boards most smartphones sold worldwide. This would represent the intention of making the wrist device to function as an extension of the cell phones with the operating system.

Google did not comment the information. But a patent approved last year strengthens the rumor. The document says the Smart Watch (smartwatch clock, in English) would have a “flip” screen, which probably can be lifted, “tactile user interface”, processor and wireless network connection.

The design of the search giant, according to the Financial Times, would not have relationship with the Samsung-a manufacturer that sells more Androids in the world.There is the rumor that LG, another partner of Google’s platform would be investing in a similar clock. This possible competition, to analysts, would be doing businesses go with your designs.

Viability
It is unclear how to operate these clocks or if the projects are commercially viable. The Pebble, smartwatch clock that got more than $10 million in funding collective site Kickstarter, displays notifications received on your smartphone and serves to control music on the iPod.

But it is not possible to take a call or reply message. It’s just a useful warning for when the phone is out of reach. The company has already delivered more than 30000 watches the people who participated in the financing.

The Sony Smartwatch, which have not yet achieved popularity, plays similar functions and are for sale on the site of youremailverifier by 599 R$.

Already the smart glasses from Google (Google Glass) are able to record videos, take photos, do searches, links and display maps. The product can be purchased for $1500 by American residents who win a contest sponsored by the company.
