The company in its official site announced,
“Today, we’re excited to announce the next phase of our journey -- we are joining Google to help grow the portfolio of watches powered by Android Wear.”
The CoWatch has just been launched in September, and one of its biggest features is that it supports Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant. It allows users to use the voice command in order to know the latest weather report or order food of their choice. Now that Cronologics is officially part of Google, we do not yet know what will be the fate of CoWatch, though there are possibilities that it would not be available for sale for awhile.
Cronologics, has gone on to state,
“We see strong alignment with Android Wear’s mission and look forward to working with our new colleagues at Google to continue pushing the frontier of wearable technology and smartwatches with Android Wear 2.0 and beyond.
Android wear 2.0, which was supposed to be launched by the end of 2016, might now be launched sometimes in 2017.
