Google is hiring a VP of engineering for wearables, but what does that really mean?

Last night Android police released two new job listings on Google called Hardware Engineering, Wearable Vice President and Wearable Design Manager, Consumer Hardware .

Given the sorry state of wear, using OS SmartWatch means that everyone's fingers are crossed, and that at last Google is seriously responding to to improve SmartWatch.

. There are many clues you can do together. It looks like Google and its hardware use SmartWatch, which is in line with Google's overall strategy of creating its own hardware with a touchstone device that teaches the rest of the hardware. How to do well in the Android (and Chrome and Google Assistant) industries

However, separating desires and clues from smart watches is particularly dangerous. Many Android users want to make Google accurate and first-rate smart watches because the Wear OS ecosystem is not so good right now. Google has a history of making pretty good hardware, and Android users actually need the best smart watch selection.

When we asked if this was about creating a smart watch, Google did not comment. It may not be possible. Google executives previously called headphones like Pixel Buds "wearable". However, I think you can think of it as a more traditional definition of "wearables" (at least as in 19459003). I also would not see the Google pixel clock this year if the company hires for this role right now. At least people who have received many comments from people who have jumped into this job can not be seen.

Still a clue. There were so many rumors that Google made "Pixel Watch" last year, so it came out in August last year.

Since then, we've seen references to the "medaka" and "salmon" codenames in the Android open source code, "said Miles Barr, director of Google for Wear OS. . It is noteworthy because Google usually uses fish names on its hardware. The code we were discussing seemed to be related to Wear OS, and the engineer who submitted the code had experience working on that platform. proviso! Hope!

Another clue is that Google recently spent $ 40 million on Fossil's wearable technology. According to Fossil's senior vice president, "New product innovation is not yet on the market," Wearable said, "This goal is to bring to other partners in the ecosystem." "In other words, our story will look more like yarn and tacky bulletin boards than if Google were consistently making their watches.

The thing at the heart of the bulletin board is the work in the center of every computer, worn on the wrist Even if one person is a processor, what processor will we use to build our own smart watches? In the short term at least the only option currently available is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 3100, which will improve battery life and speed up slightly

Using the OS as a software platform suffers from latency, stuttering and indifference of third-party app manufacturers with a good user interface, although the new processor could help the first two, Three clocks made by Google It can help by second processor. [19659015] All these clues are added to the Google I create its own smartwatch? Maybe. Can I also add that the president of wearable wear a hard day? Certainly.
