Two new smartwatches will be launched by Google in 2017 Q1
During the course of a recent interview with The Verge, Google executive Jeff Chang - the company's product manager of Android Wear - said that two new flagship smartwatches will be launched by the company in the 2017 first quarter.
According to the details shared by Chang in the interview, the two new smartwatches to be launched by Google will be the company's flagship Android Wear 2.0 devices. The smartwatches will be the first devices to be launched with the updated Android Wear platform.
The two new smartwatches, being currently developed by Google, will probably be Nexus-branded devices; and will likely be launched some time after the company's announcement of its next-generation Nexus smartphones.
One of the new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches will be a small device, codenamed Swordfish, which will lack mobile data and GPS. The other smartwatch will be a bigger device, codenamed Angelfish, which will be sportier and more fully-featured --- it will boast LTE, GPS, heart rate monitor; and will, thus, be a true "standalone" Android Wear device.
Both the new Google smartwatches will come with full circular displays; and will seemingly not have "flat tires."
