Fashion retail company Fossil Group has announced its support for Android Wear-based wearable devices. Fossil, a designer and manufacturer of many fashion items including watches and jewelry, says it's "working with Google" to support Android's venture into wearable tech, though no specific details about the partnership are given in today's press release.
Fossil is named as one of Google's partners for Android Wear in today's announcement, alongside manufacturers like Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung, and chipmakers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm. Given the nature of watches as a fashion item, having a partner like Fossil onboard from the get-go could be significant. But with the first Android Wear devices not expected until the second quarter, it could be a while before we see the fruits of this partnership.
