Google Wants to Be All Over Your Body

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-10_1bfc1de86a.jpgGoogle (NEW YORK) -- Google wants to be all over your body. The search giant announced Tuesday that it is working on the second version of Google Glass and, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal, the company is also gearing up to mass produce its new smartwatch. While Google began its Glass Explorer program in the spring, the company is planning to expand it before the full consumer launch of Glass in 2014.

Glass Explorers, who were chosen by the company yet still had to pay $1,500 for the glasses that display digital info right in front of your eye, are now allowed to invite three of their friends to the program.

Those Explorers will also have access to a new Glass device that allows the digital spectacles to work with prescription frames and includes a new earbud. Google does not state if the battery life has been improved, but it does state that it will allow those early buyers to swap out their Glass for a new color option.

But Glass doesn't look like it will be the only Google gadget you can put on your body next year. Google is in the final stages of creating its own smartwatch and has begun talking to Asian suppliers to begin mass production, the Wall Street Journal reports. Google did not respond to ABC News' request for comment on the report.

According to the same report, the watch will be powered by Android and will be feature Google Now, the company's personal assistant technology that feeds recommendations and information before people even know they need it. Google is said to be focusing on the battery life in particular, an issue that has already plagued Samsung's Galaxy Gear watch, which was released last month.

Google's watch may also have steeper competition next year. Apple and Microsoft are also reported to be working on digital bracelets.
