Google's Android unit is developing a Smart Watch to rival expected offerings from Apple and Samsung, according to the FT.

The watch will act as an extension of the operating system and is separate from Samsung's efforts, said their source.

So a watch with wifi/3g/4g services not bad. I check it out I may or not buy it. Depends on the price range. So amazing how technology is advancing so quickly.
