Cronologics’ CoWatch made waves with integration of AVS. Before Alexa, it had built an Android OS for watches. Now, it’s a part of Google.
It’ll be interesting to see if it will continue to support Alexa on the CoWatch or if the deal will mean that another player will be able to come in with an Alexa integrated device. AVS on a watch is definitely a play.
If NLU companies were in vogue last month, this month’s fashion seems to be watches with Cronologics joining Pebble in the acquisitions game. Maybe CES 2017 will be a place where we’ll see more watch players emerge (maybe Viv on Samsung Gear?).
