Today Google announced it was getting involved in the wearables scene by means of their new, super mobile operating system – Android Wear. Google Wear is designed specifically for smartwatches and the company has released a couple of promo videos showcasing what looks like a sweet and intuitive user interface. The new OS will feature initially on smartwatches designed by Motorola and LG, and from what has been seen so far both look pretty damn amazing!
Looking after all your fitness needs, Android Wear will display distance, speed and time information and will feature Google maps. Another key feature will be Google Now which will allow users to easily access functions via voice command. This will be an ‘always listening experience’ and users can access instant relevant information with the voice command ‘Ok Google’.
From what we have seen of Google Wear it looks pretty amazing. It may be exactly what the wearable’s market has been waiting for.
