Facebook has recently made several attempts to penetrate the hardware market with products such as Portal TV and Facebook AR, sometimes successfully, others not so much. Today, some reports say that Facebook is working on launching its own smartwatch with an emphasis on social media capabilities. It is therefore interesting to see, if this is the case, how the business model and the activity of Facebook can be used on the small screen of a smartwatch.
According to the report, Facebook’s smartwatch will provide users with additional features in addition to the usual ones such as monitoring its physical condition and alerts. It will also integrate messaging services through the company’s services, including WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, and will be able to connect to the internet autonomously.
With so many smartwatches on the market, Facebook will be forced to bring out something unique or at least something different from the usual health and fitness characteristics of competitors. A big question remains = if there is a buying public that will be interested in something like this. However, given all the privacy and security concerns for Facebook in recent years, connecting another device to Facebook’s services may not be that appealing, at least to the more aware buyers.
In any case, we can expect the Facebook smartwatch to reach our hands at some point in 2022. And if all goes well, an upgraded model will also arrive in 2023.
