Google to help developers use Android on wearable devices

Speaking today at the SXSW conference, Googles SVP of Android and Chrome Sundar Pichai said that in two weeks, Google will be releasing a developer SDK that will make it easier for companies to create wearable devices that run on Android. Pichai didnt drop any hints as to whether or not Google itself was working on any devices, but instead said that when it comes to wearables, he thinks about it at a platform level. That means that Google is focusing on the low-level operating system hooks that are necessary for the sensors in a wearable device to talk to the Android operating system. Google wants to standardize how those sensors send their data to Android — and that standardization in turn should allow device manufacturers to opt for Android instead of a custom OS.
