Android SDK for wearables announced at SXSW

Google to launch developer kit for wearable tech in two weeks

Google is to release an Android SDK for wearable devices.

Speaking at SXSW, Google SVP of Android, apps and Chrome Sundar Pichai said that the kit would begin to develop a “vision for developers of how we see this market working”.

While Google’s only wearable device remains the Google Glass smartglasses, rumours and reports of a Google smartwatch have been developing in the last few weeks.

Pichai said that the Google SDK would provide a system software and API to developers, without restricting what wearable form factors they choose to implement it in.
