Google is one of the most innovative companies. There’s no question to this claim. In the wearable tech area, it pioneered the Google Glass idea and suddenly other companies are following Google’s footsteps.
As to smartwatches, however, it has been late to join the fray but a recent official statement, we came to know that Google is working on a version of Android designed for smartwatches. The OS will possibly be unveiled at Google I/O and most likely, a hardware will be revealed running the OS.
