It is not a surprise anymore that Google is working on their Android Wear Smartwatches. After all, this company has been making their flagship phones and tablets.
Earlier this year, there are already speculations that Google has been working on their smartwatch prototypes. However, it was only this December that these rumors have been confirmed.
According to the reports coming from The Verge, Google already disclosed the existence of their Android Wear smartwatches. Apparently, we can expect that these devices will be out on the market on 2017.
Google Android Wear Smartwatches: Who Confirmed It?
In the exclusive interview with The Verge, the Android Wear product manager Jeff Chang confirmed that Google would be launching the said products. Specifically, Chang noted that they would be releasing two Android Wear smartwatches in the early months of 2017.
However, Chang told that the smartwatches wouldn’t have a Pixel or Google branding. Instead, it will be branded by the company who would manufacture them. At this point, Chang didn’t disclose the company’s name.
Albeit this, Chang confirmed that this “mysterious” company has already produced Android Wear devices. This case is similar to the Pixel and Nexus handsets. They are launched by Google but were made by a third-party manufacturer.

For the meantime, the only certain spec is that these devices will come with Android Wear 2.0. Moreover, it is expected that the AW 2.0 is compatible with Google Assistant and Android Pay.
The new platform and features of the Google Android Wear Smartwatches are still shrouded in mystery. However, it is expected that the official details about these devices will be revealed at CES 2017.
On the other hand, many are already speculating the makers of the Android Wear could be the following companies: Tag Heuer, Sony, and Fossil. Even Asus and Huawei were included in the list.
