Facebook (Meta), may be making a new product, and this time it’s a Smartwatches. A new report by LetsGoDigital, via PhoneArena details two patents that could hint at what to expect from a meta smartwatch.
One of the design looks like a conventional rectangular-dial smartwatch, but comes with detachable displays, and other features a circular dial and three built-in cameras.
The patents were release by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).
The first watch features a rectangular dial similar to the Apple Watch with a detachable display.
There appear to be no buttons or crown on the side, so this variant could be completely touch-control.
The first patent shows a rectangular watch with a detachable display.
The second meta smartwatch is expect to feature three camera lenses, and the bezel will apparently rotate to allow a single camera sensor to make use of the multiple lenses.
The three cameras in the setup are expects to be similar to a typical triple-camera setup on a phone, including a main telephoto lens, an ultrawide lens and a third zoom/fisheye lens.
The second patent shows a watch that comes with multiple cameras.
Reports suggest that the Smartwatches will be able to work with VR and AR systems and could be use as an input device for an upcoming AR headset.
Smartwatches are expect to have standard fitness-oriente features like heart-rate tracking, step-counting and sleep monitoring.
A temperature-monitoring sensor is also expect to come.
A rumoure release date for at least one of the two Smartwatches is slate for this Summer, but whether the Meta will actually go ahead with this product remains to be seen.
Note that all patents may not necessarily make it to a final product.
And if the Meta smartwatches do make it to the market, it will be an interesting addition to the current lineup of Smartwatches available to customers.
