“This is our gift to you.
But it can never compare to what you’ve given.

What does it take to give a gift?
It takes thoughtfulness. Compassion.
And sometimes, sacrifice of your time,
your talent, and your heart,

———Amazing products are designed in Cupertino.
Amazing moments are made by you.
These moments are your gift this
holiday season—to your customers,
to your team, and to the world.

Thank you.”

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company previously gave custom hoodies with the Apple logo, water bottles and blankets for the holiday.

Google gives smartwatches

Similarly, Google has given Android Wear smartwatches to its employees as a holiday gift this year. Google gave them the option to select between a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 last year. This year, employees will get either an LG GR, a circle faced watch, or an LG G, a rectangular watch. Both watches carry a price tag of around $200, and according to Business Insider’s Lisa Eadicicco, the LG GR is more of a fitness gadget rather than just being a wristwatch.

The Android-powered smartwatch is equipped with a range of sensors, such as a gyroscope and accelerometer for sensing motion, a barometer for detecting temperature, and a heart rate monitor. Also LG has stated that there will be some apps from its side other than Google’s own apps. However, it seems that some Google employees are not happy with the gift and called it “cheap,” says a report from Business Insider.
