Google May Be Working on a Smartwatch Project

Last week, we brought you some interesting images of one designer’s idea of how a Google-made smartwatch might end up looking. At the time, we felt obligated to make perfectly clear that, while this was a cool-looking idea and all, there wasn’t any particular reason to believe that Google was actually working on developing any product like it. That may not so true anymore, upon a new report arriving that it is “actively exploring the idea of making its own smart watch.”

According to Business Insider, Google’s been approaching the idea more from a marketing standpoint than one concerned with design or hardware at this point. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have anything more specific to add concerning the results of such an inquiry, or even if it plans to move forward with this smartwatch project, but it may simply be too early for that decision.

Project Glass is still a long way’s off from evolving into a consumer-ready product, so when it comes to wearable devices, Google may just be taking its time. It’s not inconceivable that we’d see a smartwatch project from Google come to fruition sometime later this year or possibly next, but for the moment we’ll have to live with knowing that the company’s at least looking into the idea.
