Facebook is reportedly developing smart watches, which may have hit the market next year. They should be powered by a certain version of Google’s open-source Android operating system, which could be the Wear OS.
According to available information, smart watches have no name yet. However, they will provide mobile connectivity and focus primarily on Facebook messaging services. Of course, they will also include health and fitness monitoring. Facebook will also allow watch owners to connect to third-party fitness services (such as Peloton).
This is not the first time that Facebook has tried to enter the area of the Android operating system. A few years ago, Facebook partnered with HTC to launch an Android smartphone that even had its own messaging launcher. However, the smartphone did not catch on among users.
Not surprisingly, Facebook plans to launch a smart watch, as the company considered buying Fitbit before it was bought by Google. A report from The Information also suggests that if the watch goes on sale, it will be sold at a similar price as the cost of making it. Facebook would then release another improved smart watch model in 2023.
Facebook also plans to launch augmented reality glasses different from Oculus Quest 2. However, they are not expected until 2023.
