20.2.2021 | Facebook is building a smartwatch!
Facebook is pushing further into the hardware industry by building a smartwatch which it plans to start selling within 2022 as reported by Business Insider on 12 February, 2021.
The watch will prioritize features that people use Facebook’s family of apps to send messages to each other, as well as integrations with health and fitness products from companies like Peloton, according to the report.
