Two weeks ago, we ran a report titled: ‘Google Watch is happening soon, heavy into Kit Kat/Google Now functionality‘
Google is focusing on longer battery life and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
The WSJ is now “hearing the same things” (video below)
- Google Inc.’s smartwatch is in late-stage development and the company is in talks with Asian suppliers to begin mass production of the device
- The smartwatch will be able to communicate with other devices such as a smartphone, and draw information such as travel schedules from a user’s email through Google Now
- With its wristwatch, Google is aiming to address two criticisms of smartwatches that skeptics have long made: usefulness and battery life.
