Curator Notes

This kit gave developers the ability to create smartwatch applications using the Android platform. In 2012, WiMM Labs posted a message on their website that they had entered into an “exclusive, confidential relationship” and that they were ceasing sales of the Developer Preview Kit. The “exclusive, confidential relationship” was revealed to be with Google who confirmed that they had purchased the smartwatch maker. Along with the technology, Google also brought WiMM employees onto the Android team.
