The competition between Apple and Facebook so far is turning out to be a walk in the park. Because Facebook plans to launch a connected watch which could well be called Meta Watch, after the name change from Facebook to Meta. A new competitor of the Apple Watch which would have the full support of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp and its billions of users to make it succeed.
A Facebook connected watch with notch for your camera
Bloomberg took a leaked photo via the Facebook application itself and located by developer Steve Moser. We see a square shaped clock with rounded corners with a wide curve. The most characteristic of the front is the lower camera, which introduces a notch
Apparently the watch has a removable strap as well as a button on the top. Previous rumors discuss the possibility of a second bedroom On the back, it can capture photos and videos when it is “detached” from the strap. It should also have its own cellular connection which makes it independent of a smartphone.
At the same time, this connection would be used to interact with applications like Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp or Facebook. As for the health part, it is assumed that it has a heart sensor.
According to Bloomberg, the scheduled date for its launch it’s the first half of 2022. Although it is not a fixed date and plans may change.
A competitor of the Apple Watch Series 8
Meta Platforms Inc. is the new name of Facebook Inc., which has decided to rename some of its products. Meta Portal instead of Facebook Portal, Meta Quest replaces Oculus Quest. And, Meta Watch? That could well be his name.
What is clear from the leaked photo is that this device will be more of a smartwatch than a smart bracelet like Fitbit and many others
Meta will be hard pressed if your goal is to beat the Apple Watch. Although there is an important stress component in the clothes for convincing people’s “empty dolls” they have nothing in it. It remains to be seen whether the ongoing privacy dispute of the old Facebook will pose a problem for potential users.
In all cases, the Meta Watch will add another layer of shock with apple. If things were already tense due to the negative impact of iOS 14.5 on Facebook’s business, it will now reach another level.
