After enabling Bluetooth and Wi-Fi facility, Google’s latest Android Wear will now get cellular connectivity that will be reducing user’s dependency on smartphone. Android Wear is the operating software for various wearables including smartwatches.
Cellular connectivity will allow the users to plug the wearable device directly into the mobile grid to take calls, send and receive SMS, do internet search, and do other internet related tasks without pairing up with any smartphone or Wi-Fi connection.
About the usage and application of this latest connectivity feature the official Android blog post stated that,
“The next time you’re running an errand or a marathon, try leaving your phone behind. With calling, messaging, and thousands of apps right on your wrist, you’ll always be able to stay in touch and on track. Say goodbye to bulky pockets and awkward armbands: cellular support for Android Wear lets you wear what you want.”
The post also disclosed that the first Android Wear smartwatch to have cellular connectivity will be LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.
