Google has announced that several of the Android Wear partners will be releasing smartwatches this fall (autumn). The search giant is working with watch makers like Diesel, Emporio Armani, Fossil, Guess, Gc, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger to produce Android Wear-powered smartwatches.
“Android Wear was created to take smartwatches beyond “one size fits all.” That’s why we’re thrilled there are even more ways to express your style this fall—all while keeping you informed with messages at a glance, activity tracking, and help from your Google Assistant,” David Singleton, VP Of Engineering, Android Wear, wrote in a blog post.
Google did not share any specifics about the upcoming smartwatches, but the blog post is full of examples from the existing Android Wear smartwatches and how each of them carries unique and interesting features. If you are in the market for an Android Wear smartwatch, the Google blog post is a great place to start.
