Google Gets Serious About Wearables

Wearables have been a hot topic since the new year, with CES featuring wearables a-plenty. Until now, most were powered by third party operating systems, all with different standards and functionalities. Google has decided that Wearables are a potent enough market to expand the Android operating system into, and have announced that they are developing a new wearable SDK for Android. The tools will be available to all in roughly two weeks, and will look to get Google’s interface into smart watches, fitness bands, and others to enable seamless sync between devices and phone operating systems. So although Apple beat Google to the car, it looks as though Google is taking the lead on wearables and connected devices as they continue to flourish.
