Google seems to be pretty serious about its wearables business. The company is now set to shake up the world of wearable technology with an all-new launch to take on the Apple Watch.
The company has confirmed that it will be launching two new flagship Android Wear smartwatches in the first few months of 2017. The new devices, which are currently being built by an unidentified third party, will be launched packed with Google’s very own Android Wear 2.0 OS.
The launch has been confirmed by Android Wear product manager Jeff Chang. Chang said that the new watches are being manufactured by a company that has produced Android Wear devices in the past – meaning it could be one of the likes of Motorola, Sony or Huawei.
He noted that, “We’ve enabled a lot of diversity with our hardware partners to target different types of consumers and preferences. This is a marathon, not a sprint. This category of product is here with us to stay.
