Re: Leveling the playing field
Apple is doing the right thing here. Altough Apple has its own ecosystem, the big user foundation for Android wearables is not neglectible.

Re: Leveling the playing field
@shakeeb,

IMHO, I don't consider Apple at the forefront of smart ware. It may currently be the more robust, but do to the high price tag, and there being other options, it'll take awhile before it can consider itself at the top of the mountain.

I love gadgets, and the apple watch still doesn't appeal to me. I have a fitbit and that provides the level of functionality that I need at a price point that I wouldn't mind getting a second one (either replacement or upgrade)

What do you think?

Re: Leveling the playing field
Will Apple willingly give access to Google to link with their hardware and software while they are already in the smartwatch market.

Re: Leveling the playing field
Great to see android wear expanding so fast. Users now no longer need to buy an apple watch to get the smartwatch experience.

Leveling the playing field
Great Article!

I think what this does is simply allowing for more players to enter the battle field and duke it out.

I know I would definitly opt for an android wearable devices since I'm a heavy user of google products...aside from the fact that it's more accesible on the money side.

One thing I'll admit...Apple is definitly listening to it's users. By allowing android to be part of the app store is a welcome to many.

Apple has a well equiped team to determine well crafted business strategy, so I doubt this decision isn't part of a very strategic move.
