Google Acquires Smartwatch Software Platform Cronologics Ahead of Android Wear 2.0 Launch

Google has acquired Cronologics, a software platform for smartwatches founded in 2014 by Lan Roche, Leor Stern, and John Lagerling.

Google will use Cronologics’ technology to empower its Android Wear.

“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,” said the Cronologics team online.

Android Wear 2.0 is slated for release early next year amid a cooling and consolidating wearables market.

The value of the transaction was not disclosed.
