While smartwatches haven't exactly taken off in any regard, they are more popular when the first Android Wear smartwatches were unveiled and launched a couple of years back during Google's annual I/O developer conference in 2014. Since then, handful of new Android Wear options have graced the market, but not one has come from Google themselves. Surely, the smartwatch is a market which Google has had some interest in penetrating beyond the inclusion of its Android Wear platform. While there is no way to know for sure if Google has had interest or conducted research in producing their own smartwatch, a recent rumor fro earlier this week suggests that Google may actually be working on two smartwatches, and that they may be Nexus branded.
The mere thought of a Google-built smartwatch is likely enough to send tons of Android fans into a tizzy, especially if they end up as Nexus smartwatches and come with decent specs, a compelling design, and an affordable price tag. While not much is known about these two watches just yet, largely due to there being no confirmation that they're in development, it might be hard for some to get excited at the idea. As part of the rumor, though, there has been brief talk of what to possibly expect from such devices. Both watches will reportedly come with a round watch case, and have a fully round display. It's also rumored that each device already has a codename. Angelfish is being referred to as the larger watch, having a 15mm thickness and a diameter of 43.5mm, while the second and smaller watch, Swordfish, is said to have a thickness of 10.6mm and a diameter of 42mm. Angelfish may also come with LTE and GPS support as well as an integrated heart rate sensor. This isn't much to go on, but knowing these smartwatches may be coming from Google, would you consider buying one?
