A Google Smart Watch, code named Gem, has been previously reported by us, but the rumours are definitely mounting for a reveal alongside the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4. It is believed that the watch will be “always listening” and use Google Now for most of its functionality, such as local weather, nearby cafes, flights, appointments, calendar notifications and more. Messages, emails and calls would also be pushed to the watch.
The watch would be wirelessly connected to a phone via Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, and it is envisioned that Google’s powerful Voice Search will be deeply integrated.
It is anticipated that Gem will be announced with the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 before the end of this month.
