Blass: Google smartwatches loaded with Android Wear 2.0 to launch in Q1
That delay in officially launching Android Wear 2.0 may serve to tweak what could be in Google’s own make of smartwatch.
We’ve been hearing that the company would be releasing two of its own Android Wear products at some point after the Pixel launch with the idea of debuting the OS update as well as proprietary features to “the Google Watches.”
Well, it seems that Evan Blass is pointing to the first quarter for when we should see these watches, codenamed “Swordfish” and “Angelfish” in prior leaks from Android Police, debut with Android Wear 2.0 on-board.

Huawei seems to have pulled away from the ecosystem, at least for the time being, to work with Samsung on a Tizen OS-based wearable product while other Android Wear producers have kept the assembly lines quiet since earlier this year.
Will those major OEMs follow suit behind or just in front of Google’s next bit of hardware? How about Wear 2.0? Will it get a bump ahead of these watches? We’ll want to see where this goes.
