Google Smartwatch

There is often talk in the last period of a smartwatch made directly by Google. The watch has been shown in at least three different Google offices: Berlin, Manchester, and Mountain View. The circulating watch seems to be an almost definitive version and could arrive on the market shortly.

The source also reports some curiosities about materials, stating that 'it will be very similar to glass'. As far as the interface is concerned, it will be simple, based on the Google Glass interface and managed using swipe from right to left for menu management.

Smartwatch but with smartphone in tow?

A function that should include the inclusion of the telephone signal and radio signals, which with the combined use of Google Glass could free us from the use of the smartphone. But the source is critical of this possibility due to the need to use tethering, stating 'Not yet a standalone device.It needs to be connected to a smartphone".

When asked for information on the manufacturer, the source replied without hesitation, indicating Motorola, which could prove to be the ideal partner for this type of production.

Motorola has already created an excellent smartwatch, the MOTOACTV. A solid smartwach, well made and already among the best available on the market.

It remains to be assessed whether this technology, defined as 'wearable', made up of Glass and Smartwatches is ready to make the leap and become a mass product and for daily use.
