Top 5 features the Google watch absolutely needs

Smartwatches
These are the top five features that Google watch needs to be a success. A report says Google is working with LG to introduce a couple of new Android Wear Watches. For the sake of clarity I'm just going to call these things Google Watches or just Google Watch. Also, number one is obviously often battery life So we're not going to include that on this list. Let's get to it. At number 5, LTE. Having the Google Watch function as a standalone device that is not reliant on a phone will set apart this watch from Apple. There are Android Wear watches with LTE, which is a good thing. Google would be foolish to leave out LTE. At number For fitness features, a Google Watch would need to appeal to lots of different kinds of people. Cram in fitness features like GPS, and a Heart Rate center for fitness tracking. These features could get people who want the causal tracking on board. Google. And number three, Assistant, the good one. Google Assistant is built into developer builds of Edwardware 2.0. That's the operating system that these Google watchers should run. However, there are different versions of Google Assistant. The Google home version is currently dumber than the pixel version. If Google is giving tis blessing to a watch, it should function much more like the pixel phone. And number two, waterproofing. This one is a no-brainer. The more occasions you can wear a watch, the better. Enough said. At number one, an awesome design. Google, LG, sit down. If you want human beings to wear your watch, please design a watch that people actually want to be seen with. Google's Pixel phone is dull, uninspired design. Whatever a Google watch looks like it should be a design that is immediately identifiable as the Google watch. Make it happen. Special thanks to CNET's Dan Graziano for his help on this top five.
