Amazon wants to get Alexa everywhere to compete with Google Assistant and Apple Siri which are already on smartphones. To do this they are creating a variety of wearables and devices:
- Echo Earbuds: this is pretty standard and fits the Echo audio brand, makes sense. This is probably the only one that will survive.
- Echo Glasses: try to avoid the Google Glass creep factor by not having a camera, but they’re glasses, do 20/20 vision users just have blank glass? Weird.
- Echo Ring: Dick Tracy had his wrist radio but this is an echo ring. Talking to your finger? That’s going to be just odd.
