Google plans to launch its Android smartwatch






Google has made revelant advances on hardware and software tech. From the invention of their auto self controlled cars which is still is still topping tech chart, to the invention of Android Nougat. Now the company may be working on creating wear-based smartwatches with Google Assistant integration. 


These Android Wear smartwatches are expected to come with Nexus branding. According to the report, "One watch will be larger, sportier, and more fully-featured (LTE, GPS, heart rate), the other will be smaller and lack the aforementioned mobile data and GPS."

The larger watch is likely to be called Angelfish and is expected to sport 43.5mm diameter and three buttons. The smaller watch is said to be called Swordfish and sport a diameter of 42mm.

According to the report, the company is also said to be working on new watch faces, apps and other controls. It is not clear when Google plans to launch these watches.

So far, Google's Android Wear operating system powers smartwatches from manufacturers like Samsung, Sony and Huawei.

At this year's I/O, Google announced a major update to its Android Wear platform. The biggest feature of Android Wear 2.0 is support for standalone apps. The update also adds keyboard and hand-writing recognition, along with general interface overhaul.

Android Wear is a version of the company's Android operating system designed for smartwatches and other wearables.
Android has been designed to work on devices with screens larger than 1.5-inches, though it has been squeezed down to tiny proportions before. 

When Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat, it promoted it by saying it would work on all sorts of different pieces of hardware, primarily because it was happy to operate with 512MB of RAM.

Could the lightweight KitKat be destined for Google’s smartwatch?

If not, and the smartwatch does come from Google itself, then perhaps it’ll work with software similar to what’s installed on Google Glass. Rumors have said the watch will be tightly integrated with Google Now, and we’d also expect it to display the usual notifications associated with smartwatches.

Another feature taken from Glass and Google Now is voice control, which could also be used to operate the watch.

The search giant has made their intentions of diversifying very, as they wouldn't be limited to only one line of innovation.
