Report: Facebook working on Android-powered smartwatch

With Oculus VR headsets and Portal video conferencing smart displays, Facebook is increasingly becoming a hardware maker. One Facebook product reportedly in the pipeline is a smartwatch that’s trying to compete with Google-owned Fitbit and the Apple Watch. The Information broke the news today and detailed how the Facebook smartwatch would be powered by “an open-source version of Google’s Android software.” This is similar to the Oculus Quest 2 and Go, with the report also revealing that the company is working on making its own OS for “future hardware.” Additionally, the watch will have its own cellular connection rather than have to rely on a smartphone for internet access.
