Google’s possible Android Wear smartwatches leaked in renders
Even though Google hasn’t found the amount of consumer adoption that rivals have seen with their smartwatch offerings, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a tremendous future in Android Wear. This is not only the most diverse platform, but also the one that has evolved the quickest when compared to others. We’ve seen a few recent rumors that claim that Google is even willing to build its own smartwatches to compete, and today we learn about them.
Today we find some very interesting renders of Google’s possible Android Wear smartwatches, codenamed Angelfish and Swordfish. The renders are actually not what was originally leaked, but instead recreations with minor changes in order to protect the anonymity of the source. The recreations are claimed to be very close to accurate and at the left we can see Angelfish, which is rumored to be the LTE-capable smartwatch with extra buttons, and the smaller watch at the right is Swordfish, the typical Android Wear offering. The source claims that Google’s MODE watch bands might not be compatible given the curves of the chassis between the watch lugs, but it could also be the case that this is just a design element that is flat within.
What we do know is that if these rumors hold water, these watches could be Google’s first attempt at showing off Android Wear 2.0, and this time with its own hardware. We even see the leaks showing interactive and customizable watch faces, something we know is part of Android Wear 2.0.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
