Google has already announced that the Android Wear 2.0 update will bring the virtual, on-screen keyboard to update-eligible smartwatches when it arrives later on this year. And yet, Google won't be able to claim its virtual, on-screen keyboard is first to the platform. SnapKeys will beat Google to the punch.
According to SnapKeys, a new update it is sending out provides an on-screen keyboard for circular Android Wear smartwatches, allowing you to text and type while waiting for Google's on-screen keyboard to drop. The company says that you can type up to 80 words per minute with its virtual on-screen keyboard; you can even "slide type" in the same way you do with Google Keyboard on Android smartphones if you prefer.
SnapKeys launched a smartwatch on Kickstarter last year with the goal of bringing faster typing to smartwatches, but the company just might make a bigger splash with its keyboard rather than a smartwatch. You can check out the video below.
Tell us: are you excited about the SnapKeys keyboard? Are you ready to dive into this virtual keyboard, or are you still waiting for more than the virtual keyboard with Android Wear 2.0?
