Cronologics, which was founded in 2014, is a California-based OS development company made up of former Google employees, and works specifically on smartwatches, has been acquired by google for developing its own-branded smartwatches running Android Wear 2.0, which is currently expected to debut in 2017.
The company in a brief statement said:
“We see strong alignment with Android Wear’s mission and look forward to working with our new colleagues at Google to continue pushing the frontier of wearable technology and smartwatches with
Android Wear 2.0 and beyond.”
It further added:
“We’ve been so proud and privileged to build Cronologics and we’d like to thank everyone who has taken part in our journey. We’ve loved working with you, and we look forward to new opportunities to serve you and partner with you in our new life at Google.”
A few months ago, Cronologics with IMCO launched a watch named as CoWatch , probably a smartwatch. It was featured by voice-based virtual assistant services powered by Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service. That’s look like Google wants to improve voice recognition services on wearable.
However, it would be interesting to see how Google’s watch will compete in the market because 2017 is here.
