Google Smart Watch: Google wants in on Smart Watch Action

Google Smart Watch: Over the past couple of months, we have talked quite a bit about the potential for the smart watch industry to get a huge bump in the months to come. This is on the heels of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) discussing the possibility of releasing this type of device in the near future.

Google Inc (GOOG)Along with Apple, it appears that Samsung is also in the running to bring a smart watch to the market. And now, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), a company that is best known for its search engine prowess, has ideas of getting in on the action. In other words, it appears that everybody is falling everybody else with one company vying to be first to market.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is one of the hedge fund industry’s most popular stock picks, but it’s been displaced by a financial stock recently (see which one here).

According to a recent report by The Financial Times, the search engine giant has its Android team on the case.

It appears that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) filed a smart watch related patent in 2011, touching on an interactive user interface and dual screen display.

While Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Samsung all work on a smart watch device, it is important to note that there are others being sold right now. For example, the Pebble wristwatch is among the most popular.

Despite the fact that these three tech giants are all thought to be working on a smart watch, only one is going to make its way to market first. The question is: which company will be first, and regardless of who it is, will the watch have something of value to offer?
