Smartwatches continue to dominate the market and Facebook does not want to be left behind. Exclusive portal information The Verge points out that the company chaired by Mark Zuckerberg is already developing its first smartwatch and although it is not yet publicly confirmed, it seems that its debut would be scheduled for the summer of 2022. One of the main novelties of this smart device is that will have two cameras, one of them removable, to take photos and videos, and share the content in a more direct way – without the need for a smartphone – on WhatsApp, Instagram and, of course, Facebook.
The report notes that the main camera will be placed on the front of the clock screen and will be exclusive for video calls. While the second camera -autofocus- will be located on the back of the watch, it will have a resolution of 1080p with which it will be possible to capture still and moving images, and it will be able to be disjointed / separated from the stainless steel frame on the wrist.

Likewise, the Facebook smartwatch will seek to be a strong competition for the Apple Watch and will incorporate a heart rate monitor for those passionate about life fitness; as well as a messaging section. The exact software who will use the device, but The Verge points out that they will use CTRL-labs technology, a startup that allows you to control electronic devices with your mind or small gestures, without the need to physically manipulate them (via). In addition, it would debut in the market with the Android operating system, although in the future Facebook could try its luck with its own operating system (via), something like Huawei’s HarmonyOS. If this weren’t enough, Zuckerberg would also be planning for the smartwatch to integrate with its own augmented reality glasses.
As we pointed out above, Facebook would launch the first generation of its smartwatch in 2022 and would continue to work on the second and third generation for years to come. The approximate sale price would range between $ 400 dollars and it would be available in black, white and gold. We emphasize that the information provided by The Verge It is not confirmed and, in fact, the medium suggests that Facebook could completely scrap the idea of the smartwatch, as it has not begun to be mass produced and does not have an official name.
