The Information reports that Facebook is planning to launch a smartwatch to compete in the Apple-dominated smartwatch market.
The report is suggesting that Facebook is developing their own smartwatch to compete mainly against Apple, with the main focus being on health and messaging.
It would likely be integrated more with Facebook’s Messenger platform and benefit users of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
On health, the report suggests that the smartwatch will be a fitness device, with features like cellular connectivity, workout-tracking, communication with trainers, and a possible connection with apps like Peloton.
Pricing is still unknown but Facebook’s watch could launch as early as possible due to Apple’s dominance in that market of products.
