...to know you even closer
Facebook is planning to launch a smartwatch next year, reports The Verge. The Watch should have two cameras.
According to the tech website, the smartwatch gets a front and rear camera. The rear camera would have a resolution of 1080 pixels and is intended to take photos and videos. The front camera is suitable for video calling.
Facebook and Instagram can then share the images. The Watch could connect to the network itself. The smartwatch does not have to be connected to a smartphone. The Watch would also be given a heart rate monitor.
The first Facebook smartwatch should be launched in the summer of next year. Although the company does not expect high sales, it is already working on second and third generations of smartwatches.
The watch is part of Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to create electronics for consumers who bypass Apple and Google.
