TripIt, as many Android smartphone users will know, is an app that allows you to view all of your vacation, flight, and rental information. The company has an app on Android that's proven rather popular, but the company had remained out of the smartwatch game until now.
Just a few days ago, TripIt took to its own blog to announce TripIt for Android Wear:
First off, we've released TripIt for Android Wear so on-the-go travelers can get where they need to go, even with their hands full. You'll be able to quickly access the info you need most while traveling, including flight, hotel and rental car information. We even added in a little something extra -- a new timer that counts down to your flight's departure time.
Android Wear is the smartwatch platform that has had the most public popularity despite the sales of the Apple Watch. Recently, we've seen apps such as Documents and Microsoft Outlook bring more functionality to what has already proven to be a rather popular platform. Google's Nest team has made it easier than ever to control your Nest smart thermostat with an Android Wear smartwatch. Even manufacturers such as Michael Kors, Casio, and TAG Heuer have joined the race, bringing fashionable wrist wearables that will sway consumers who want something a bit more elegant and prestigious than your typical consumer smartwatch.
With all this support for Android Wear, and the growing power of Android Wear on the consumer smartwatch market, TripIt has made a wise decision indeed to bring its app to what is quickly becoming the go-to smartwatch platform for most consumers.
