Google is apparently about to ramp up its wearable device
business in a major way. That would seem to be the case thanks to a
few clues, the most recent of which is a
new job listing spotted by Android Police that shows the
company is looking for a “Vice President, Hardware Engineering,
Wearables” for the Google Hardware team.
According to the job description, this executive will “work
collaboratively with the Senior Leadership team for Google Hardware
and will be responsible for the design, development, and shipment
of all Google’s Wearable products.” When you couple this new
position — as well as the
$40 million Google just paid Fossil for secret, unfinished
smartwatch tech, which the image at the top of this post is a
reference to — you can start to see how it adds up to something
important about the direction of Google’s wearable efforts.
