Facebook is working on competition for the Apple Watch

Facebook is known primarily for its social networking site, but for some time it has also been trying to expand its offer with various electronic devices, such as intelligent Portal speakers and Oculus VR glasses. A new report by The Information suggests that she is currently working on her own smart watch, which will be a direct competition to Apple Watch.

As you might guess, the characteristic feature of the Facebook watch would be extensive social functions, including integration with Messenger and WhatsApp. It would also offer various functions related to health and sport, including the possibility of comparing its training statistics with other users and cooperation with third-party websites and services, such as the Peloton.

This watch would be a fully autonomous device that does not require connection with a smartphone. A modified version of Android would be responsible for its operation. As Facebook’s business model is not to earn money from selling the device itself, but from related services, displaying advertisements and collecting user data, the watch will likely be sold at a price close to the cost of production.

According to the report by The Information, the first generation of Facebook’s smart watches would be available for sale in 2022, and a year later it would be replaced by a second, improved edition.
