The company is reportedly building a smartwatch that it plans to market by next year. The watch is said to be based on Google’s Android operating system.
The smartwatch will focus on Facebook’s suite of apps, such as Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp.
It will have a built-in cellular connection, which will allow it to function separately from its cell phone so that users do not need to carry a second device with them when they walk or exercise.
Facebook’s smartwatch is slated for 2022, and is expected to sell for a nice price, but it’s unclear exactly how much that cost will be.
Facebook should price its smartwatch below that of the Apple Watch Series 6 and SE.
