Google is reportedly set to enter the smartwatch market with its own range of a smart wrist gadget.
According to sources, the tech giant’s innovative ‘Google Now’ will act as a virtual personal assistant, answer the user’s questions and display important information, apart from syncing data from a smartphone to the watch. The tech giant is also trying to equip the smartwatch with a longer battery charge and Bluetooth 4.0 support, CBS News reports.
The report said that despite the smartwatch market being still new, developers are facing difficulty in gauging consumer preference for the technology with fears that people won't ditch the technology after awhile.
Recently, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai said that the smartwatch technology is constrained by how big a watch people are willing to wear. Google’s smartwatch, if reports are to be believed, will be seen competing Samsung’s Galaxy Gear and Apple’s yet-to-be-unveiled iWatch.
