Rumor: Google is making two Nexus-branded Android Wear smartwatches

 

Love the Nexus phones? How about some Nexus smartwatches? Well, they are coming based on what Android Police has heard from a reliable source.

According to Android Police, the two upcoming smartwatches will have circular displays. The larger watch is codenamed Angelfish and looks similar to the current Moto 360 and LG Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. It is said to have visible lugs, three buttons and a smooth housing shape that curves where the watch band meets the body. Other specs include a diameter of 43.5mm, a LTE-ready chipset, a matte dark gray finish, GPS and a heart-rate monitor.

The second watch, codenamed Swordfish, will have a smaller display with a single button on the right side of the chassis. It reportedly has a diameter of 42mm  and will come in three colors: silver, titanium and rose gold. 

Both smartwatches will have Google Assistant integration with contextual alerts and may debut with new watch faces that allow easier access to notifications, information and media controls for certain apps.
