Facebook prepares a smartwatch and the news does not stop here

Despite focusing on the social network it is, Facebook has opened up new areas and created new solutions in other fields. Your bet on hardware seems to be increasing and with results that can be considered very interesting.

The most recent rumor to emerge in the field of technologies takes for granted the creation of yet another novelty. Facebook will be preparing a smartwatch and should present it later this year. The news should not, however, stop here,


New hardware to be created by Facebook

In addition to social networks and all the messaging apps it has, Facebook has sought to diversify its offer. For this, it has focused mainly on creating hardware, which then integrates with these services and with all its infrastructure.

To continue this movement, information now appears that Facebook will be preparing its first smartwatch. This should be another proposal that will run Android, but still without confirmation whether it will be Google’s Wear OS.

Android Smartwatch to be created

This smartwatch will have access to several features, with messages, health functions and physical exercise, says the source. If it is a reality, you will join the already known Oculus, with virtual reality, and the Portal for video communication. It would thus have a hardware-based ecosystem.

There is also information that Facebook intends to create its own operating system for its hardware. This smartwatch will later make the switch to this new system, which may possibly be used later in other proposals of the social network.

There are new features in the services that the social network will create

One last piece of information that emerges from this new information suggests that there will be more news. Facebook will also have “smart glasses” that will emerge from a partnership with Ray-Bans. These are expected later in the year and will not have VR components or any screens.

After some less successful experiences, with a supposed smartphone that never materialized, this is a relevant change. The most recent proposals have proved to be correct and have generated an ecosystem that integrates everything that this social network has to offer.
