Google Getting Closer to Launching its Smartwatch

Google Getting Closer to Launching its SmartwatchThe Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google is almost ready to launch its smartwatch and will do so in the very near future.

As of this writing, we’re told that Google is now in talks with Asian suppliers to begin mass production of the device.

The new device, which will run on Android, will be integrated with Google Now, the company’s intelligent personal assistant that can answer questions, make recommendations and predict what information users need based on what they are doing, a person familiar with the situation said.

According to the WSJ, we haven’t yet seen Google’s smartwatch because the company has been working to perfect the device many ways. For example, Google is hoping to limit the smartwatch’s power consumption so it “won’t require frequent battery charges.”

Apart from the fact that it’s “coming soon,” there’s still confirmation of the device’s name, price, or anticipated launch date.
