Google is working on a Smart Watch: Report

Last few weeks have been quite interesting for the wearable computing products. We first heard about google-smart-watch

According to a report in Financial Times, rumours circulating in Silicon Valley suggest that Google is indeed working on a Smart Watch. This Google Watch is being developed by company’s Android unit not the secret X Labs that are making Google Glass.

If these rumours are really true, we might see Sundar Pichai showing this Smart Watch at company’s Google I/O event.
Google patent application for wearable computer, which was filed in 2011, was also unearthed by FT, which lends further credence to these rumours.

A Google spokesperson declined to comment on the rumours, as they always do.

The entry of giants like Samsung, Apple and Google could jump start the smart watch market, but positioning a device on a wrist could be too restrictive for many people, says Sonny Vu, chief executive of Misfit Wearables.

Would you be interested in using an Android run Smart Watch, which could communicate with your phone and give you information right when needed?
