Anandtech just posted info about what is inside the first Android wearable devices.
Android wearable technology is a bit of dissapointment for me and lost me when I learned that inside they have only 400mAh battery which you have to re-charge every night.
Also they cost almost as new Chrome book $200-250 retail. I bit high price for actually nothing but remote LCD with touchscreen, attached to your Android phone or tablet.
Android Wearable devices can’t operate stand alone nor you can run code on them, you just receive push notifications and look for return actions like tap, slide on the LCD.
So inside they have LCD with touchscreen, small buzzer and Bluetooth Low Energy, all this controlled with x4 core Cortex-A7 device 🙂 same functionality probably could be done with 8 bit PIC? As one friend says the bloat-ness of the software is in reverse relation with the power of the hardware, the powerful hardware you get more bloated become the software running on it.
By wearable technology first I was thinking for cool sensors which are attached to your wrest and measure your temperature, blood pressure, pulse, your motion activity, siting pose in the front of the computer, ekg, eeg, check your breath for alcohol and log all this info so it could be later used to make your health profile and give you recommendation what and how to improve, so far these first wearable devices do not impress me.
