Embarcadero Technologies enables app development for the IoT marketplace, including the fast growing wearable tech sector
SAN FRANCISCO – October 2, 2014 – Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, continues to reinforce its strategy to help developers build connected apps for the Internet of Things (IoT) with its "Developing the Internet of Things Showcase," which highlights new devices and IoT platforms supported by the September 2014 release of Appmethod. This week's showcase feature is Android Wear from Google, and in particular the new Moto 360 smartwatch – Motorola Mobility's first entry for the next generation of 'wearable tech' built on the new Android Wear platform.
The Moto 360 serves as both a Heads Up Display (HUD) and connectivity bridge between Android smartphones and other smart devices, including sensors. Appmethod is the software development platform of choice for developers that want to build and connect apps for the new Moto 360 Smartwatch and other Android Wear devices as they are released to market.
"Wearable tech is one of the fastest growing sectors of the IoT market. Samsung has launched its mHealth initiative, and Apple is deeply integrating Healthkit and Homekit into its platforms and has recently announced Apple Watch," says Michael Swindell, Senior Vice President of Products at Embarcadero. "The growth of this interconnected landscape of devices is creating new opportunities for companies to extend the user experience of their business out to gadgets and wearables like the Moto 360, and has app developers racing to create the next "killer" connected app. Appmethod is making it easy for businesses and developers to quickly and easily build powerful interconnected solutions across phones, tablets, PCs, IOT sensors, gadgets and wearables, delivering amazing user experiences and interactivity."
