Last night Google took the tech world by storm by announcing its foray into the smartwatch space with Android Wear. So far many companies have been trying their luck with smartwatches. Probably with smartphones becoming too big and bulky to take them out every time they buzz, and accept it they do buzz a lot these days with a zillion apps sending out push notifications, companies think smartwatches could be the perfect add-on device. So what if you are meeting someone over coffee and continuously glance on your watch – etiquettes be damned. But yeah, there is something seductive about a watch being able to tell you more than just time and date. With Android Wear, Google wants to change that perception.
Motorola moto 360
The moto 360 has to be the best smart watch design that I have seen to date. It blends the new smart technology with classical watch design in a minimalist style.
It is the first smart watch powered by Google’s android wear platform and it seamlessly keeps the user up to date without distracting. Subtle notifications alert the user to emails, texts, calls, meetings and social posts and can be reached with a simple twist of the wrist. As well the smart watch responds to your voice, just say “OK Google” to search questions, send texts, schedule meetings and take notes.
The beautiful merge of smart technology and classical design creates a watch which doesn’t feel alienated to wear. It is both comfortable and familar on your wrist whilst offering the latest technology needs.
