Can Facebook Watch Give Apple Tough Time?
The Facebook smartwatch will feature two cameras and a detachable display module that allows people to capture images and videos on the go.
According to The Verge, Facebook is planning to unveil its first smartwatch next summer. The Facebook watch can possibly give Apple a run for its money.
The smartwatch by the social networking giant will feature two cameras and a detachable display module that allows people to capture images and videos on the go.
The camera sensor at the front is designed to be used for video calls.
This announcement does not come as a surprise as the social media behemoth continues to try to compete with Apple across multiple areas, including with Facebook watch to give apple some tough time.
Facebook demonstrated interest in participating in the smartwatch arena when it looked to purchase San Francisco-headquartered consumer electronics and fitness company Fitbit in 2019 (Google ended up snatching the fitness wearable maker).
Since then, Facebook has spent roughly $1 billion to develop the first version of its watch and has hundreds of people working on the effort.
According to the Verge article, the first edition watch will come in three color options – black, gold, and white, and will be priced around $400.
Whether Facebook watch and Apple Watch will make choosing a smartwatch between them difficult for smartwatch enthusiasts remains to be seen, but Facebook’s can be expected to be a force to be reckoned with for Apple.
