Wear smartwatches. The search giant is said to be developing two smartwatches.

Google already develops Chromebook Pixel (laptop), Pixel C (tablet), and Chromecast (streaming devices) and will soon launch Google Home (voice-activated speaker).

According to a report by Android Police, the two smartwatch variants codenamed “Angelfish” and “Swordfish” are heavily based on Google’s AI assistant ‘Google Assistant’ revealed during the Google IO keynote earlier this year.

Angelfish, or the large-size variant, will fit somewhere between the 42mm and 46mm sizes of Moto 360 and will be almost the the same in thickness as LG’s Urbane LTE. According to the report, it will feature LTE connectivity, built-in GPS, and a heart rate monitor.

The larger variant is also said to feature three buttons comprising a circular crown like other Android Wear devices. However, the functionality of the other two buttons is not yet known. The smaller variant-Swordfish is said to resemble the Pebble Time Round.

The Swordfish version will reportedly have a single button on the right-hand side of the smartwatch’s body and will ship without LTE, GPS, and heart rate sensor, according to the website.

Currently, there are no details as to when these smartwatches will be unveiled; however, the website has said that it expects them to be announced separately from new Nexus phones and Android Wear 2.0.
