Wearable technology: The new tech battleground? provides a case study that analyzes Google's involvement with wearables, and what it will hope to achieve within the space. It also addresses the underlying strategy behind other key players' involvement, such as Samsung, Sony, adidas AG and Nike.
Features and benefits of this report (http://www.marketreportsonline.com/343448.html ) include:
- This report contains an analysis of the underlying strategies involved in Google's Glass product concept.
- Read about Samsung's new range of smart watches, and how they complement the company's existing product offering and business model.
- Find out how other players, such as Sony, adidas, and Nike have approached the nascent wearable technology market.
Google Glass, a device that enables users to enjoy much of the functionality of their smartphone through what is, essentially, a high-tech pair of spectacles, made waves on its unveiling in April 2014. Critically, the product remains at concept stage, is only available to select 'Glass Explorers' for $1,500 and is not yet a commercial product.
Samsung has used its first major move into the realms of wearable tech, its line of 'Gear' smart watches, to bolster the appeal of its range of smartphones and other smart devices. Furthermore, the company's smart watches mark a departure away from Android towards Tizen, the company's own operating system.
It is important to note that other tech companies, as well as non-tech players, have entered the wearable technology market. Crucially, however, Sony's latest wearable devices run on Android - including its Google Glass competitor, SmartEyeGlass - and, unlike Samsung, the company has made them compatible with other manufacturers' Android devices.
