Facebook might be wanting to launch a smartwatch in 2022, as per another report, checking one more hardware project for the social media organization. As you’d expect, the smartwatch will purportedly connect to the Facebook platform, empowering clients to get to the service notwithstanding more general wearable features like fitness tracking.
Smartwatches have become a common personal device and it’s nothing unexpected that Facebook might be peering toward the innovation for future hardware products. The social media organization has just fiddled with such products, the most eminent being its Portal smart displays.
The new data comes from sources talking with The Information, which asserts the supposed Facebook smartwatch may provide clients with restricted access to the social media services, as well as unspecified health and fitness features.
The report claims that Facebook’s smartwatch will feature a cellular connection, as well as messaging capabilities. The model will allegedly be powered by a version of Android. How widely the smartwatch may integrate with Facebook’s family of services — including Instagram and WhatsApp — is unclear.
Accepting the sources are right and everything goes as supposedly arranged, we may see Facebook launch its smartwatch at some point one year from now with an upgraded model showing up in 2023. The big question, obviously, is whether customers will be interested in such a product.
Security concerns identified with Facebook have, for instance, prompted a mass exodus from WhatsApp, and it’s yet to be seen whether shoppers will be interested in wearing a gadget connected to the organization’s services. Facebook would moreover be facing more settled parts on the lookout, including Apple and Samsung, the two of which offer smartwatches with support for the social media platform.
