Facebook (now Meta) announced last year that it is working on a smartwatch that will be released in Summer 2022. The smartwatch will have a rounded screen and a front-facing camera. Bloomberg leaked the first image of the Meta smartwatch in October 2021. LetsGoDigital has obtained more information about Meta’s first smartwatch.
According to reports, the smartwatch could have a detachable display and two cameras. Users will be able to directly share photos and videos through apps such as Facebook and Instagram.
The Facebook Watch will have two cameras and support for VR and AR applications
Facebook will release two smartwatch models, one with a square display and the other with a round display, according to the report. It will have a detachable display, which means it will be possible for users to remove it. Depending on the model, the smartwatch will have two or three cameras. Among the lenses available will be a macro lens, a telephoto lens, an optical zoom lens, and a wide-angle lens. Users will be able to adjust the field of view with multiple cameras.
The rotating display on the round clock will be held in place by magnets. Users will be able to choose between different cameras by rotating the watch. With the others turned off, only the camera set to 12 o’clock would be used.
Users will be able to take photos and videos with the Facebook smartwatch’s cameras and share them on social media right from their wrist, according to reports. Users will also be able to make video calls using the watch. Meta, on the other hand, isn’t going to leave the cameras here. Meta could be using these cameras as a result of virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality.
Meta is a huge fan of the metaverse and wants their smartwatch to be a part of it. By combining multiple built-in cameras, the detachable smartwatch will support AR/VR systems. In addition, the company is developing an augmented reality headset, which could be unveiled at the same time later this year. ‘Project Nazaré,’ Meta’s augmented reality glasses, is also in the works.
The Meta smartwatch will have a heart rate sensor, a body temperature sensor, an infrared metre, a motion sensor, and activity recognition sensors.
