Watch Out for Two Nexus Smartwatches from Google
With code names Angelfish and Swordfish, Google have a master plan of releasing their very own Nexus smartwatches ditching the “flat tire” found on the Moto 360.
Google and Nexus might be another brand to watch out for when smartwatches are concerned. The company is working on their very own version of the technology that can compete with Motorola and LG. Code named Angelfish and Swordfish, these smartwatches will be a the first smartwatches that can possibly ditch the flat tire at the bottom part of round displays.
Rumored specs is the first variant will be considerably larger with LTE and GPS connections. This one is named Angelfish with a 43.5mm case and 14mm thick body. That’s wide but still smaller compared to the Moto 360 (46mm) and the LG Watch Urbane (46mm). And the smaller version will come with mobile data and other connections. This bigger model will have a crown between a top and bottom buttons for various purposes.
Swordfish is the smaller one much like the Pebble Time Round but with thinner bezels. Dimensions are quite smaller at 42mm wide and just 10.6mm thick body. By far, this is way thinner than the Moto 360. Swordfish’s features can be more gentle and rounded than the Pebble’s with just one button without the LTE and GPS.
The inclusion of the Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor inside these devices are yet to be confirmed. Such SOC can increase battery life.
