Aside from announcing their idea of making Android and Windows OS boot together on an Intel processor, Intel also announced their plans on entering the wearable tech market at CES 2014 by releasing it’s own smartwatch.
Intel stated that their smartwatch wouldn’t need to be tethered to smartphone as it will have its own connectivity on board. The gadget will support geofencing, meaning it would be able to handle location-based notifications.
“Wearables are not everywhere today because they aren’t yet solving real problems and they aren’t yet integrated with our lifestyles”, said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich in a statement. “We’re focused on addressing this engineering innovation challenge.”
Intel also announced that it is set to release a smart band or what they call ‘bracelet’ in collaboration with several fashion companies.
There’s not much information regarding the specs of both devices but we’ll keep you updated.
