It will be exciting year to see more and more companies using Google’s Android Wear like pebble or might be sony too. Regarding Samsung plans read more below.
Samsung’s product roadmap for 2014 looks an awful lot like the 2013 version. In an interview with Reuters, the Korean company’s senior VP for product strategy, Hankil Yoon, says that Samsung will introduce a new Android smart watch as well as a “high-end” Tizen smartphone this year. What’s different, however, is that the watch will run Android Wear — Google’s customised software designed specifically for wearables — and that the phone might actually ship this time around.
Samsung’s first attempt at putting together an advanced smart watch based on Android, the Galaxy Gear, met with a very rough reception at the tail end of last year, and the company quickly switched to its own Tizen software for the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. In emailed comments to The Verge, Samsung has confirmed Yoon’s timeline of a 2014 release for its new smart watch and clarified that it will indeed be using Android Wear. Together with the Gear Fit, which runs its own custom software, Samsung will soon be supporting three different operating systems for its wearable devices.
