After years of speculation for smartwatches and other wearable tech, we are finally seeing products hit the market. Google Glass is still in beta but will hit the market sooner or later. Meanwhile Samsung has released the galaxy gear smartwatch, the question is will anybody actually buy it?
There were some interesting designs for the galaxy gear over the past year, but Samsung opted for a more conventional approach. It's hard seeing the Galaxy smartwatch getting off the ground, but it does have one big thing going for it- the ingenuity of 3rd party developers all hoping to make a mark by developing the next big app for Android. As long as new devices offer new reasons to use Android, developers will keep thinking of new ways to capitalize on new form factors.
