Google Is acting on Two Android Wear 2.0 Smartwatches.
It shows at this point manufacturers have somewhat given up on Android Wear, Google’s smartwatch floor. This year’s major smartwatch release came from none other than Apple itself with the release of Apple Watch series 2 and Series 1. Android Wear, for some reason, walked into the background. But all of that could turn next year if a new report is anything to go by.
According to Evan Blass, otherwise known as @evleaks on Twitter, reported that Google is currently working on two Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches and are set to be released in Q1 of 2017. Now the most exciting thing about this development is that these smartwatches are going to be the first of its species that will be fully designed and developed by Google itself. Every other Android Wear smartwatch we’ve seen thus far away has been manufactured by third-parties such as Motorola, LG, Huawei, Fossil etc.
Given this report, it’s fairly obvious Google wants to build a proper ecosystem of devices that has been manufactured and produced by the Mountain View company itself. First, it was the Pixel C, then the Pixel smartphones, now it’s likely the tradition will keep on moving forward with the reveal of a couple of smartwatches.
Why is Google releasing two smartwatches instead of one to conduct them all? It’s highly likely the company will follow the Pixel and Pixel XL formula, releasing a pair of devices with different sizes. This is something which others, including Apple, had been doing for a while, providing to the personal taste of users. Besides, not every smartwatch, or watch in general, looks great in a united size. A little choice in terms of size is the way to go.
