Is Samsung Developing A Competitor For Google Glass?

25 October 2013

It looks like a new Samsung device may be stepping up as a viable future threat to Google Glass in the new smart-glasses market (then again, there have been rumours of Apple and Microsoft doing the same). It was recently revealed that the South Korean tech company registered a new patent for something called “sports glasses”. The Wall Street Journal released a story detailing Samsung’s latest patent, which was registered in October.

Early descriptions of the Samsung “sports glasses” suggest that the device is designed to allow users to receive phone calls while exercising, without breaking momentum at the gym. The glasses also display information such as incoming phone alerts and messages on the eyepieces in the user’s periphery. Plus, these smart glasses are capable of playing to music through earphones incorporated into their frames. 

What else can be ascertained from the Samsung glasses patent drawing?

It seems that Samsung’s sports glasses will differ quite a bit from Google Glass, in that Samsung’s device is not designed to completely replace smartphones. Rather, Samsung’s device will likely work in contingency with other smart devices, including phones. For example, there is currently no reason to believe that Samsung’s new glasses will be able to support external apps, whereas Google Glass has been designed to support apps and take on practically all responsibilities currently assigned to smartphones.

Interactivity with other Samsung devices?

Will Samsung’s sports glasses be able to sync with other Samsung devices? An ability to sync up makes sense, especially since the company doesn’t seem interested in completely replacing the smartphone market with wearable devices.

A recent software update from Samsung allows its “Galaxy Gear” smartwatch to sync up with various smartphone devices (not just the Galaxy 3 Note). So perhaps Samsung’s sports glasses will be included in the same family of connected devices and be given the potential to sync up with various Samsung products.
