Olivier Janin's insight:

Pairing and using an Android Wear Smartwatch on an iPhone ?

It is now possible. 

Noticeable change in the usual Apple wallet-garden biztech model but it keeps iPhone on a safe position, independant from Smartwatch market.

Yet, the features are not as performant as for an Apple Watch.

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 2, 2015 2:23 PM

In a nondescript conference room at Google’s headquarters a few weeks ago, I paired my iPhone to a smartwatch running Android for the first time. I was there to ask Jeff Chang, the lead product manager for Wear, how he’d managed to get Android watches working with iOS and how much they could do with an iPhone. Then my first notification came in on my newly paired Huawei Watch and my carefully laid plans evaporated.    That’s how it goes with smartwatches. They’re meant to keep you from having to pull your phone out of your pocket. You’re supposed to glance at the notifications and smile inwardly, knowing that you can ignore that ping and focus on who you’re talking to. At their best, they do exactly that. At their worst, they derail a conversation.   They’re also still nascent. Very few people have had to bother grappling with the idea of notifications and computers on their wrists, because not all that many people are buying smartwatches. There’s a real sense that everybody’s waiting to see how things shake out, and I don’t blame them. Smartwatches aren’t really ready for everybody yet, not the way that smartphones are. But the smartphone comparison is apt: nothing drove innovation in that space faster than healthy competition between Apple and Google. If competition is what it takes to get smartwatches ready for the mainstream, even Apple Watch users should be glad about Android Wear coming to the iPhone.

The future of Google isn't in your phone — it's on your wrist.
Olivier Janin's insight:

The key points of Google Smartwatch's Davd Singleton strategy : 

  • the problem that Smartwatches aim to solve: make everything in you pocket obsolete

Google has filed a patent for a smartwatch that can take your blood without needles

Google has filed a patent for a smartwatch that can take your blood without needles | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

It could help diabetics more easily monitor their blood glucose levels throughout the day. (...)

The patent application reveals that the device first sends an 'abrupt surge' of gas into a barrel containing a microparticle, which then punctures the skin to produce a small drop of blood.

This droplet is then sucked into a negative pressure barrel, where it can be used for further testing.

Google has developed and started testing a cardiac sensor wristband.
Olivier Janin's insight:

Google intends to be more accurate than HR Wearable Trackers on the market. Particularly by using bio-impedance technology (and not infrared photopletysmography as Apple Watch for example). Google watch embeds Valencell Technology, one of the key Tech actor which succeed to license its HR tech in numerous devices, from headset to wristband.
