It's time for a new wave of Smart watches I'm Bridget Carey and this suggesting that up to. Google gave the world a sneak peek at the future of injury powered Smart watches it unveiled. Android ware which is a special version of Android operating system that will work on the small screen at the Smart watch. And it's very much like the system that powers the Google glass headset. You can glance -- quick updates and notifications from Google now but also. Use voice commands. Several companies said they'll have hardware to work with this including LG HTC Samsung and Motorola. In fact Motorola took a step further and at least -- -- its upcoming Android where Smart watch the -- 360. It'll have a round screen and it'll be sold in a variety of styles globally by summer 2014.
