Product manager for Android Wear at Google, Jeff Chang has announced within the upcoming beginning of next year, Google is set to distribute two flagship smartwatches.
To benefit from the renewed interest in smartwatches is Google which would roll out two flagship smartwatches in 2017.
Despite the fact that the smartwatch market is heavily declining, Google continues to support the ecosystem and the companies that plan to launch new smartwatches next year.
This means the new smartwatch will not be branded like its Google-branded flagship phones such as Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL.
F-35 is a mighty force, but so are Trump's tweets
The Air Force's 100th F-35 Lightning II flys across the sun over Luke Air Force Base, Ariz, on August 26, 2016. Trump discussed the F-35 program with Hewson on Wednesday, promising to decrease the cost of the aircraft.
Right now, the name of the devices or their manufacturer is unknown, as Chang refused to give out the details on those particular topics. These smartwatches will face tough competition from rivals in the smart wear market such as Samsung, Apple and even Fitbit but it will be interesting to have more options to choose from in 2017.
The release of Android Wear 2.0 release on Google's smartwatches will also see the floodgates open, so to speak, as other companies will then update existing smartwatches and release new hardware throughout 2017 with the software pre-installed.
Google has not revealed a significant update to its wearable software since the original platform's launch in March 2014, and recently delayed the launch of Android Wear 2.0 to ensure it was complete. He did mention, however, that the company has produced Android Wear devices in the past. It will also work with iOS devices, but there will be differences. The Android Wear 2.0 is going to have a lot of features. Watches without NFC, for example, likely won't get Android Pay access. Additionally, both will support Android Pay for mobile payments, along with the Google Assistant.
Apart from the launch, Google is also looking to make sure that as many Android Wear devices receive the new Android 2.0 platform as possible. "This is a marathon, not a sprint".
Many reports indicate that the search engine giant is planning to integrate innovative features such as Android Pay and Google Assistant in the smartwatch in a bid to entice users to purchase the device. "This category of product is here with us to stay".
