I think 2013 is going to be the year of the smartwatch. We’ve already seen a few from other companies, and we’d heard Google may be stepping into the market with them. Well, it looks like Google is definitely going to try to turn that smartwatch patent into a reality, and at this point they’re actively looking for ways to market the device. This really shouldn’t surprise anyone, since we’ve all seen that Project Glass is Google’s next big project, and other smartwatches have had some decent success gaining popularity. With Google’s ability to give you information before you even ask for it, they’d definitely have a leg up on the competition if they do go through with a smartwatch. Who knows, maybe wearable technology is going to replace all of our little handheld phones in the near future?
