The Verge has recently reported that Facebook is planning to enter the smartwatch industry. The social media company is said to release a smartwatch that features two detachable cameras that can be placed where the user desires to capture photos or videos. These can be shared across Facebook app suites such as Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
The smartwatch will feature a front-facing camera, which will primarily cater for video calls, and a rear-mounted camera that is equipped with an autofocus feature and can record 1080p videos. Also, like other smartwatches, the Facebook Watch, not the official name, will have health and fitness monitoring features like heart rate monitoring.
It is reportedly to come with LTE connectivity which can work separately from smartphones. It will be available in white, black, and gold colors and it will be coming sometime in 2022 for $400. As of now, Facebook is contacting third-party accessory makers that will provide compatibility with the product’s detachable camera such as backpacks and cases.
