Blocks the Smartwatch Will Run Android Lollipop

Blocks, modular smartwatch is on the way, but have opted out of the Android Wear in favor of Android Lollipop.

The English startup company Blocks Wearables are in the process of making a modular smartwatch, a project that originally was inspired by Google’s Project Ara. They have now announced that the Agency is going to run a modified version of Android Lollipop and thus do not make use of Google Wear platform.

They have also indicated that Qualcomm will supply the processing power for the clock in the form of Snap dragon 400 and adjacent modules will use ARM processors that use very little power.

The idea behind the clock, is to make it possible for the customer to extend functionality with strap as essential is a collection of modules, it could be the extra batteries or sensors in various forms.

Crowdfunding on road

The company had otherwise planned a crowdfunding campaign which has not yet been over the stack, but that is expected to be kicked off in the summer.

Co-founder Alireza Tahmasebzadeh says that agreements with, among other things, the Taiwanese manufacturer of modules and Qualcomm had to fall into place before they would put a crowdfunding campaign started, there should now be a handle on the most and they have in the meantime worked to refine the collections that binds the modules together.

On the other hand, there is now a track of plans and production, Tahmasebzadeh tells why the clock is expected to be delivered 7-8 months after a crowdfunding campaign is completed.

Android Wear vs Lollipop

The reason Blocks are unselected Android Wear, according to Tahmasebzadeh the smartphone version of Android simply supports more functionality, they found it therefore more optimally to modify Android interface to support a circular display, and make the changes necessary to support the possible modules that can be associated with.

In addition, he says that the Blocks would have to be compatible with both iOS, Android and possibly WP, and the future of iOS compatibility on Android Wear is yet unknown.

Back there now, according to Tahmasebzadeh, completing the hardware modules, and test the Agency in cooperation with the modules that now even can be mapped. The real smartwatch which serves as the central processing unit, is designed and tested together with the battery modules

Back there is nothing else to do than to wait for a crowdfunding campaign which is just around the corner, here customers must give its verdict, and assess whether the Blocks are a concept that is worth betting on. Blocks are competing, after all, against some pretty strong opponents as good enough does not offer modular smartwatches, but which do what they can to throw as many sensors in their watches as possible.
