Google is reportedly set to enter the smartwatch market with its own range of a smart wrist gadget.

According to sources, the tech giant’s innovative ‘Google Now’ will act as a virtual personal assistant, answer the user’s questions and display important information, apart from syncing data from a smartphone to the watch.

The tech giant is also trying to equip the smartwatch with a longer battery charge and Bluetooth 4.0 support.

According to a report, despite the smartwatch market being still new, developers were facing difficulty in gauging the consumer preference for the technology with fears that people won't ditch the technology after awhile.

Recently, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai said that the smartwatch technology was constrained by how big a watch people were willing to wear.

Google’s smartwatch, if reports are to be believed, will be seen competing Samsung’s Galaxy Gear and Apple’s yet-to-be-unveiled iWatch.
