Since all of us heard about Google’s rumored smart watches, it’s been a long time, and now the rumor became truce when Google has officially announced two flagship Android Wear watches next year, of which they’d launch early in 2017.
The news comes from Jeff Chang, a product manager of Android Wear, who said both devices will be launched with Android Wear 2.0. But he did not say the manufacturer with which Google is working to build these devices, just say it’s a manufacturer that has ever released Android Wear devices before. In addition, he said that the partnership was the same with Google’s Nexus program for collaboration and goals. Two devices will apparently not have Google or Pixel branding and instead be called by the company manufacturing them.
Motorola recently took its name out of the Android Wear market, so Google might also tap the owned company to pitch in. Unlikely Google launched its own branded smartphone this year, this time the company will not do the same for the upcoming smart watches.
Besides, he also added that the upcoming Google smart watches would lead a pack of brand new wearable device to promote the release of Android Wear 2.0, which was delayed from the 2016 release to 2017. Its wearable platform has become a major snag this year and it’s no doubt that Google doesn’t want to go down without a fight.

The next developer version of Android Wear 2.0 is expected to be released in January including the support for Google Assistant and Android Pay. The watches will support Android Wear 2.0 including the Moto 360 2th generation, LG G Watch R, and the Asus Zenwatch 3. We’re not sure if Google will hold an event to introduce these watches to customers but it shouldn’t be much longer until we can hand them on.
