The newest technologies of Google and Apple have created a buzz way earlier than the actual release of the said technologies. And now that the news is out, everyone’s looking forward to what is predicted as the new products set to bring a whole new level of revolution in the way we interact with and use technology. Let’s take a look at these newest gadgets, the Google Glass and Apple iWatch, and the features that are about to change the technological industry.
What They Are
When you look at these two products at their basic level, they’re a simple eyeglass and a watch that’s incorporated with various technologies. You can look at them as supercomputers in a wearable package.
How They Are Designed
Google Glass is a voice-activated display mounted into an eyeglass. The entire technology can be found in the top right portion of the device. It is built with a rocker button on its right frame, which offers a second option for controlling it (next to voice command). It also comes in different colors: charcoal, tangerine, cotton, sky, and shale.
Meanwhile, not much can be said right now as to the final design of the Apple iWatch, except that it’s a future-looking piece of gadget that looks much like a modern watch and can perform a whole range of functions.
How They Work and What They Offer
Google Glass is powered by Android OS and, through your voice, can perform a wide range of actions: take photos, record live events (and share them), send messages, and even work as GPS. It can provide your needed information (all you have to do is ask), as well as translate foreign language.
The Apple iWatch is iOS-operated and can sync to your Smartphone through Bluetooth. It can work with Siri, will allow you to control the music on your phone, and can even have health tracking features. Like the Glass, it has GPS, too.
Some of those features, however, are just expectations at the moment (especially those for the iWatch). More or less, those are what you’ll find in these devices, and we can expect more improvements in the months or years to come.
So Which Is The Cooler Wearable Tech?
When it comes to fashion and style, the Apple iWatch takes the cake. To start with, the iWatch will be easier to incorporate in one’s wardrobe than the Glass. The Glass will remind you of its presence the whole time you wear it, whereas the iWatch can be worn and forgotten, until you need to use it. When it comes to technology, though, Google Glass is way more advance. So do you want the latest technology, or do you want a technology that you can wear comfortably?
