With wearables set to become the technology growth market of the next few years, Google isn’t content letting its Android partners do all of the driving. According to a report on Sunday from The Wall Street Journal, Google has confirmed that within the next two weeks, it will launch a new Android software development kit (SDK) tailored specifically for the wearable devices market.

The confirmation comes from Google’s senior vice president of Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai, and Google’s new SDK will target the new wave of smartwatches and other wearable computers.

The WSJ also noted that Google plans to launch its own Nexus smartwatch manufactured by LG, though it cited no sources with that information and offered no new details on the device.
