Slow start for Android Wear-“EVERYTHINg Depends Now On The Apple”

Devices with Google’s operating system for smart watches, according to several analysts have not gone as well as expected.

Time has not really come for smart watches that run Android Wear.This despite the fact that the platform marketed extensively by Google’s partners include LG, Motorola and Samsung. It argues now more analysts.

Together they shipped last year only 720 000 devices with Android Wear worldwide. It shows the new figures from analyst firm Canalys.

–Android Wear must do considerably better in the future, and we think it’s going to make it, “says Daniel math at Canalys.

Francisco Jeronimo at analyst firm IDC agrees, but adds that the platform also needs to be improved in terms of the graphical interface and battery time.

–I use multiple mobile devices and feel that the interface in Android Wear is hard to learn. “once I learned to deal with it, I felt pretty unhappy with the experience, says Francisco Jeronimo.

He also believes that neither Google or hardware manufacturers managed to convince consumers with valid reasons as to why they should invest in a smart watch. While all eyes are directed against Apple and the upcoming Apple Watch which is released in april.

“If Apple does not succeed, it may mean death for this product category. Because if Apple fails, who can,” said Francisco Jeronimo.
