According to a new rumor, #Google is planning the release of two new Android Wear smartwatches that will be akin to Nexus smartphones. This means that the company will have a say in its design and functioning. It is said that the company will release a high-end model with GPS, LTE, heart rate sensor etc on board and another variant sans those features, thus having two decent wearables at different price points.
The top of the line model is internally known as the ‘Angelfish‘, the report says, while the low-end model is in the works as ‘Swordfish‘. What’s even more exciting is the fact that these smartwatches will apparently include physical buttons, with the Angelfish supposedly having three buttons, while the Swordfish will settle for one.
Google’s Assistant software is said to be available by default, which shouldn’t really be a surprise. The Swordfish could be about 10.6mm thick, while the Angelfish, due to the additional components underneath, will be 14mm thick as per the report. Along with Assistant support, these new Android Wear smartwatches will apparently come with Google’s newly designed watch face which will offer improved notifications.
