Google's Android unit is developing a smart watch, according to London's Financial Times, meaning that it has been reported that Apple, Samsung Electronics, Google and LG are all working on a wearable device. Samsung has confirmed it is working on a smart watch, while Apple is said to be either close to or years away from completing its device. LG is also starting to produce its own device, Darrell Etherington writes. 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.
