Google has officially announced that they’ll be making smart watches based on the Android operating system. The first two watches, the Moto 360 and LG G Watch, will debut soon; the G Watch, which sports a square fascia, is expected around the end of spring, while the rounded Moto 360 should be available by summer’s end.
Both watches will run on the “Android Wear” platform; it’s a tweaked version of the Android mobile underpinnings, streamlined to work in conjunction with Google’s mobile phones.
Motorola and LG are not the only ones making watches; Google is reportedly working with companies like HTC and Samsung to develop future models.
There are no official specs yet, but Google says that all of the watches will support voice commands, notifications, and directions.
