Will Google’s own-brand Apple Watch rival look like these leaked renders?

July 19, 2016


Google’s got some pretty cool Android Wear updates on the way, but that doesn’t hide the fact that it’s not got the most exciting smartwatches supporting it.

That looks set to change though, with Google reportedly working on its own-brand Nexus smartwatch to bring the fight to the likes of the Apple Watch.

And now we’ve been offered our first potential look at, not one, but two inbound Google wearables thanks to renders based on the company’s internal efforts.

Surfacing via AndroidPolice, the renders are said to be based on designs discussed by internal sources and show two high-end-looking watches with very different designs.

Although the smaller of the two models features plenty of soft curves and a clean, rounded finish, the larger device features a more traditional smartwatch design, with two additional buttons and more angles making it look a lot like the LG G Watch.

While the smaller of the pair is reportedly doing the internal rounds at Google under the codename Swordfish, its big brother is said to have been handed the moniker Angelfish.

Although Google has yet to formally comment on new hardware, with the Android Wear updates set to drop in September, we’d expect to see any new devices around then.
