Two Android Watches Expected From Google In 2017

Google, which has lagged behind smartwatch rivals Apple and Samsung, will begin selling Android Wear 2.0 watches in next year's first quarter, Jeff Chiang told The Verge.

The new 2.0 platform for the watches will include new features like standalone apps that do not require a phone, support for Android Pay, and support for Google's voice-controlled assistant. The product manager didn't disclose who is the company in charge of manufacturing the products, he only said that it's a company that has produced Android devices before and this narrows it down to either Huawei, ASUS or LG. To drop the unified Pixel brand name is a bold move, and this leaves the door open to speculation as to what kind of naming convention will we see down the road when these smart timepieces are ready for action.

In addition to this unsteady market, Android Wear appears to have its deficiencies.

Android Wear 2.0 will be pushed out to other Android Wear-based smartwatches after it debuts on these new flagship partner devices, with a long list of hardware eligible for the upgrade. However, it looks like within the first few months of 2017 consumers will have two top of the line Android watches to choose from.

Google Android Wear director David Singleton announces Androidwear updates during the 2015 Google I/O conference on May 28, 2015 in San Francisco, California. Better the rising tide of Android Wear 2.0 lift the sales of all manufacturers, rather than just directly benefit Google. They've shown that with the Google Pixel smartphones, and also with Google Home, their new smart speaker product. The news confirms all previous rumors that Google planned to roll out smartwatches soon. The watches will also enable owners to use Google Assistant and even Android Pay.

In 2017, Google's going to take the Nexus approach to its Android Wear smartwatch platform. "He likened the partnership to Google's Nexus smartphone program in terms of collaboration and goals", the report added. To make it happen, the company is rolling out a wave of update for Android Wear devices.

The new smartwatches will be the first devices to launch with Android Wear 2.0, which is now in its fourth developer preview.
