Google Will Launch Two Flagship Smartwatches Early Next Year

Are smartwatches still interesting to any of you? Google hopes so, as they are releasing "flagship" models next year. I still don’t get the obsession with making smartwatches look like traditional watches; they’re supposed to look dorky.

The new models will not have Google or Pixel branding, but will be branded by the company that is manufacturing them. Chang says that Google collaborated with the manufacturer آ— which he wouldn’t name, but said has produced Android Wear devices in the past آ— on the hardware design and software integration for the watches. He likened the partnership to Google’s Nexus smartphone program in terms of collaboration and goals.
