Android Wear has not obtained much love in the past few several weeks. The first significant upgrade, Android Wear 2.0, was declared back again in May. Two several weeks later, we exposed the first leaking of Google’s own smartwatches, set to first appearance with the new upgrade. Although designer previews for 2.0 are still coming, the upgrade itself has been forced back again to 2017, and several organizations won’t launch any new AW gadgets this year.

Now Evan Blass, more popularly known as @evleaks, has tweeted that Google smartwatches are set for a Q1 2017 launch. The two timepieces, known as Angelfish and Swordfish, have already verified by us to be running the Android Wear Use 2.0 upgrade. Angelfish, the larger design, will be capable of LTE and GPS link to run individually from a Bluetooth connection. Small sized design, Swordfish, does not have LTE and GPS but will likely have for less money tag.
That being said, I’m thrilled to see what Google has. Hopefully with the (likely) coordinated launch of both Google watches and Android Wear2.0, the entire AW system will see a much-needed resurgence.
