Rumor: Facebook is working on its own smartwatch to track health and send messages

Facebook was recently discredited for requiring Oculus users to use Facebook services. After all, Facebook is the parent company of Oculus. It looks like Facebook is looking to increase its wearable influence: according to The Information we are working on our own smartwatch.

According to four sources of the tech site, the product should be primarily intended to be used for sending messages and for monitoring your health and sports performance. Of course, Facebook services are used for this. An ‘open source version of Android’ would be used as the operating system, which should amount to a modified one you that uses the open source aspects of Android. At the end of 2019, the news also went that Facebook would work on a fully self-developed operating system. However, a partnership was not ruled out then, it may be that the result of recent times is a modified version of Android.

It is also striking that the smartwatch must have its own cellular connection, so that you do not have to connect it to a smartphone to send messages. It must be able to handle both Android and iOS devices. Furthermore, it is said to be able to connect to the luxurious Peleton exercise machines as well as certain health equipment. The first version would be planned for 2022, and a second variant would also be in development and should be released in 2023.
