 Google Glass vs. iWatch: How Do They Compare?

Google Glass vs. iWatch : How do they compare?

Google Glass vs. iWatch . Google vs. Apple. Clash of the Titans.
-These two companies attack the challenge of wearable computing from two completely different perspectives. How will consumers respond?

It all starts with physical location, or what real-estate the devices occupy on the user’s body:

iWatch : The wrist is an easy target as it has been the home of technological advancements from the beginning of the wristwatch era, c. 1920. People are used to wearing technology on their wrists. It is easy to imagine that by the time we see the iWatch 3gs, it specs will surpass even the best of today’s smartphones. But in all its glory, the iWatch is really just moving the tech from your pocket to your wrist, with a smaller display. Or, in a less ambitious scenario, the smartwatch is merely a satellite hub to your existing smartphone, showing filtered notifications as needed, with a limited touch surface to interact with. Plus, you still have to pull up your sleeve to see the display.

Glass : The face, on the other hand, is a much steeper ascent. For Glass to win, humans will need to get used to wearing a computer on their face. Yet the potential benefits may far outweigh the novelty, especially if Google can successfully position the product as a coveted fashion fetish which transcends tech.

Glass, however, doesn’t just shift the location of the phone screen: instead it offers a completely new computing paradigm.

The unique benefits of smartglass are as follows:

1) true hands-free computing
2) low profile camera that records true first person PoV video/stills
3) head tracking (it knows where you are looking)
4) private audio (via bone conduction)
5) private viewing of information

None of these can be accomplished with a watch. In short, the glasses afford a far more intimate connection to the infosphere than any other wearable tech, short of implants.

Importantly, Glass superimposes net information atop your natural view of the world. Restated: users of smartphones and smartwatches find themselves sucked into screens, walling off the outside world. Smartglass interfaces instead place a small semi-transparent overlay seamlessly atop actual waking reality.

And finally, Glass dramatically reduces the time and effort required to retrieve information from your files or the internets. Well-engineered smartglass will reduce tasks from a 12+ second process to a sub-3 second process. Smartglass also reduces muscular exertion for same: compare getting a phone out of your pocket and pushing a few buttons and typing to simply tilting your head skyward and saying “ok glass“. And while that ~8 seconds savings doesn’t seem like a lot, multiply it times the average 200 times a day a user accesses their smartphone, 365 days a year, and it’s massive. [In fact, it potentially saves users 30 minutes a day, or almost 200 hours a year!]

Results? A lot more net queries. Information is no longer at your fingertips, its closer than your fingertips. Information retrieval so fluid that it becomes ingrained into one’s very consciousness… ideally becoming a genuinely natural extension of our biological brains and thought processes.

My vote is on Google Glass as compared to all of the other offerings in this category out there.

I think the watch. Google glass's look is over the top techy/nerdy IMO. Could do more technically with glass, but I can only see maybe trying the watch.

I think the Glass is definitely going to take some getting used to if it catches on. Watches are definitely let pervasive and nerdy looking. I've already read a bunch of articles about how people think that Glass users are creepy/nerdy and sh*t. That's probably why Google is partnering with Warby Parker and other sunglass designers to make the product s3xier.

you guys really want to have 24/7 "2) low profile camera that records true first person PoV video/stills
3) head tracking (it knows where you are looking)
4) private audio (via bone conduction)

The trend in cells is bigger screens. If the iwatch is just a phone on your wrist it probably won't catch on.

Not sure about google glass yet but could be big. Nobody cares about a camera on your head, but if you can use it to see things like in minority report and it uses hand movements to control computers it could be big.

The possibilities in the enterprise are endless.

I think both concepts are cool but I think the watch would be more compatible with my own lifestyle. Like dude said, I just dont see the glass catching on with everyone because of the way it looks. I will probably eat my words within a year but whatever.
