When we hear the name Android we immediately associate it with the popular mobile operating system. Google however does not have a monopoly on the Android name as there are also other companies using it. One such company is the Android watch company that has been manufacturing quality timepieces since 1991.
With all the smartwatch models being announced in the market today it would only take some time before the Android watch company made an announcement of their own. That time has finally come as the company announced on their website that they will be releasing a smartwatch model for the Android platform this coming December.
The device which the company calls as the Android SmartWatch will have the ability to take phone calls, allows for music playback and even has a voice memo recorder among others. As far as the physical design of this wearable device goes we’ve seen better looking watches however what it lacks in design we’re hoping it will make up in features as well as in pricing.
Some of the listed key features include
- Alarm Clock
- Call & Message
- Music Control
- World Clock
- Voice Memo
This device pairs with a smartphone using a Bluetooth connection. A video presentation of the device shows it being paired with the Samsung Galaxy S4. After pairing you can keep your smartphone inside your pocket and use the SmartWatch to control it.
The Android SmartWatch will be available in multiple colors such as orange, black, red, blue, and white. So far the pricing information has not been revealed yet.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this upcoming smartwatch stands up against the competition. Right now we have the Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Sony SmartWatch 2 just to name a few that are being sold in the market.
