Rumors and reports of a Google smartwatch, previously codenamed Gem, have been in the news for months. This weekend, more details have appeared through CNET, with sources of theirs claiming the smartwatch will in fact launch at Google IO in June. Google plans to announce the smartwatch platform this March through a blog post (typical Google), and then have the final unveiling at IO in San Francisco. 

The device, manufactured by LG, is reported to run much like Google Glass; allowing Google Now’s voice controls to handle the general operations. If you still aren’t using Google Now every day, then you should opt-in to the service.

Unfortunately, no more details on how the watch will look or operate have been reported at this time, but you know we will update you with any new information that becomes available.
