‘Facebook comes with its own smartwatch’


That writes the tech news site The Information based on insiders. Smartwatch users should be able to send messages via Facebook services such as Messenger and WhatsApp. The watch also gets all kinds of fitness and health functions.

Facebook’s smartwatch should run on an open source version of Android. Facebook’s smart screen Portal also works with that operating system. The smartwatch is expected to require a connection to a smartphone.

The intention is that users will make more use of Facebook services due to the possibilities of the smartwatch. For example, they could share their fitness activities with their friends on Facebook. They could also maintain contact with a personal trainer via Messenger, for example.

Apple, Google en Samsung

Apple is the largest player in the smartwatch market with its Apple Watch. According to market researcher Above Avalon, 100 million people use an Apple smartwatch.

Google had a number of less successful smart watches under its own name, but recently completed the acquisition of Fitbit. That company makes simple fitness trackers, but also smart watches. Other tech companies, such as Samsung, Huawei en Xiaomi, make their own smartwatches.
