If you’ve been keeping up with the tech world in recent years and months, the chances are you’ll have heard of Google Glass, the eyewear which allows you to interact with the world around you, simply by looking in the corner of your eye (where the small display is). You can do simple tasks such as using Google search, taking pictures and videos, all the way through to Navigation, which is another key feature, and allows you to see directions in the corner of your eye rather than having to glance down at your phone.
Whilst the only wearable you may know of is Glass, there are actually many more less heard of wearables which are just as good, not only in the form of eyewear, but also smartwatches, and other wearables which can be clipped onto clothing, shoes, and almost anywhere else on your body.
The number of smartwatches on the market is growing significantly, including the launch of Apple’s ‘Watch,‘ which I think will revolutionise the SmartWatch industry. We are still waiting to see just how many clever companies are developing apps for our wrist-borne companions. It seems we can add Sonos to the list, at least. Smartwatch Audio is getting better.
Over on the Sonos Forums, a user named Robert reports that Sonos is beta testing compatibility with Android Wear — so you’d be able to control your music via your Moto 360, for example. Meanwhile, Dave Zatz reports that Sonos is also working on a lockscreen widget for iOS.

More integrations for Sonos users is great news, but it’s also interesting to see how third party companies will choose to engage in the smartwatch trend as it grows — we are looking forward to seeing what we will be able to integrate the Sonos system here in Australia.
