With the development of mobile technology, many traditional electronic products have begun to add mobile features. For example, watches that used to be used only to tell the time can now be connected to the Internet via smartphones or home networks to display content such as caller information, Twitter and news, and weather information.
These new watches can be called smartwatches and are designed primarily for use in situations where consumers are not comfortable using smartphones, such as when they are riding a bicycle or have their hands full of stuff.
The smartwatch idea has been around since at least 2000: Microsoft introduced such a product in 2003. Many companies are currently selling such products, including Sony, Pebble, which relied on the crowdfunding channel, and the Italian company i’m.
On June 26, 2014, at Google’s I/O developer conference, Google unveiled Android Wear, an operating system specifically for smartwatches, while Samsung and LG launched three Android Wear-based operating systems, Gear Live, G Watch, and Moto360, respectively.
