Today, it was revealed that a smartwatch startup, founded in part by former Google employees, will now be working on Android Wear directly.
That startup, Cronologics, announced that its team has been acquired by Google.
The company formed in 2014 and had been developing its own smartwatch OS, alongside its own device, the CoWatch.
“We see strong alignment with Android Wear’s mission and look forward to working with our new colleagues at Google to continue pushing the frontier of wearable technology and smartwatches with Android Wear 2.0 and beyond,” Cronologics wrote in its announcement post.
The acquisition is a homecoming for Chronologic, which was founded in 2014 by Lan Rcohe, Leor Stern, and John Lagerling
Chronologic had raised some money from investors, including CoinDesk and Student.com founder and Spotify’s head of special projects Shakil Khan.
