Google's Android unit is developing a smart watch, according to London's Financial Times, meaning that there have been reports that Apple, Samsung Electronics and Google are all working on a wearable device, a trend started by Google Glass. Samsung has confirmed it is working on a smart watch, while Apple is said to be either close or years away from completing its device. Also at Google, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said Thursday that the company has no plans to combine its Android and Chrome operating systems in the wake of the departure of Android chief Andy Rubin.
