We have known that Google has been working on its own smartwatch, and at the very least it is working towards optimizing Android for use on smartwatches. But, it seems that Google has been working on this longer than we have known. A new report is saying that Google secretly acquired Android smartwatch maker WIMM sometime last year...

Lucky for all of us, Google bought it if Apple is the one that buy it. 2014 will be the start of patent lawsuits for smart watches.

They were probably trying to avoid another bogus patent iLawsuit by Apple; I can just hear Apple claiming in court documents, "WE patented the wristband and WE patented a tiNy battery-operated metal square running a mobile OS and, therefore, WE hold the patent on any watch with smart features."
