The Apple Watch may be the best-selling smartwatch clock, however, is not the most beautiful or the most clever. During the official presentation the WWDC 2017, the Apple Developer Conference, it was pretty clear. The Android Wear nor is the software for smart watches more functional, however, has always used based on Artificial Intelligence, before focusing on Google’s cards Now, now in Google Wizard.
- Why should you be interested by the Spectacles (even not liking Snapchat)
- The problem is not the smartwatches, but the Android Wear
The staff of the site Wareable tested the beta version of WatchOS 4 and managed to test some of the new features, among them the display developed with focus on Siri, the wizard THERE. According to the site: “Apple finally understood that Google Now is very practical and, despite optimizing iPhone with similar functions for some time, the display Siri will bring these updates based on context to the clock screen.
Hey, Apple, Android users Wear use this resource type from 2014.
As you can see in the video below, during the presentation of the news of the WatchOS 4, Kevin Lynch, Vice President of technology at Apple, said that now “the Siri provides the information you need, when you need”. This was basically the Google slogan Now at the time of your release and remains now that has been converted to Google Assistant.
- What is this Machine Learning that everyone talks about?
Don’t get me wrong, the display of the Crab Apple Watch is simply very well designed, can show including pictures, what Android Wear doesn’t make. But design-both hardware and software-is the area of expertise of the Apple, but, clearly artificial intelligence hasn’t.
As you can see above, the nova Siri face will be able to offer a list of upcoming events and updates the wizard THERE Apple believes to be interesting for the users, information such as traffic, weather warnings, calendar events, and other.
In 2014, during the Google i/o, David Singleton, Director of engineering at the time of the Android, offered some example of how users of mobile platform for intelligent watches Google they could use such functions. For those who don’t remember, this was the fateful year of the World Cup of Brazil (7 x 1 Brazil Germany), and the situation constructed on stage was the journey of one of the employees of the giant search for Brazil. So, on arrival at the airport the wizard send the QR code on the boarding pass for the clock, so that the user came to the country to reserve the hotel would appear on the screen of the smartwatch clock and so on.
Well, that’s the kind of thing that Siri will be able to do in the next version of WatchOS.
Having watched the opening of the WWDC 2017 after keynote of Google i/o 2017 makes us realize how much Apple is late when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. The application of Siri in Apple’s smartwatches breaks out this gap.
However, it is undeniable that Apple develop a nice software, offers a very intuitive experience, but does not have the database of Google to feed your Intelligent Assistant. Maybe that’s why open to your store for Google Wizard, because looking at the future, it wouldn’t be interesting to lose users because of this lack in THERE, right?
Finally, if you still have a question about the distance between Apple and Google in THERE, watch the first minute and a half of the video below:
And then, you agree with me?
