Facebook is in the process of developing and manufacturing its own smartwatches.
The Information website report that the social media giants hope to start selling its smartwatches as early as next year.
According to the report, “the watch will let wearers send messages using Facebook’s services and also offer health and fitness features, according to four of those people cites”.
“Facebook’s planned foray into smartwatches would inch the company further toward CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s aim of controlling the next computing platforms after smartphones. In recent years, the social network has expanded into selling consumer hardware, introducing Oculus virtual reality headsets and its Portal lineup of video-calling devices for the home”, stated The Information.
