Google Announced “Android Wear” Operating System for Smartwatches

Google telah mengumumkan Android Wear, sebuah versi sistem operasi mobile-nya diperuntukkan bagi smartwatches dan perangkat wearables lainnya. Menurut Google di official blog-nya, mereka sudah bekerjasama dengan beberapa industri elektronik seperti Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola dan Samsung serta pabik pembuat chip Boradcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek dan Qualcomm. Saat ini Android Wear lebih fokus ke smartwatches dan saat ini sudah bekerja sama dengan salah satu fashion brands Fosil Group.

Android Wear berfokus pada notification yang cepat untuk menampilkan informasi yang diperlukan pengguna smartwatches sekaligus mengurangi interaksi yang minimum dengan perangkat.  Berikut katalog yang diberikan Android Wear dari blognya:

  • Useful information when you need it most. Android Wear shows you info and suggestions you need, right when you need them. The wide variety of Android applications means you’ll receive the latest posts and updates from your favorite social apps, chats from your preferred messaging apps, notifications from shopping, news and photography apps, and more. 
  • Straight answers to spoken questions. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions, like how many calories are in an avocado, what time your flight leaves, and the score of the game. Or say “Ok Google” to get stuff done, like calling a taxi, sending a text, making a restaurant reservation or setting an alarm. 
  • The ability to better monitor your health and fitness. Hit your exercise goals with reminders and fitness summaries from Android Wear. Your favorite fitness apps can give you real-time speed, distance and time information on your wrist for your run, cycle or walk. 
  • Your key to a multiscreen world. Android Wear lets you access and control other devices from your wrist. Just say “Ok Google” to fire up a music playlist on your phone, or cast your favorite movie to your TV. There’s a lot of possibilities here so we’re eager to see what developers build.
