Google’s Android Wear Nexus smartwatches show up in new renders

According to reports, Google is working on its own Android Wear smartwatches to be released under the Nexus banner; now we may have our first look at the platform’s potential saviours.

Android Police, which first reported the possibility late last week, has created renders based on information it has received on the forthcoming releases.

As previously reported, there are two devices of differing sizes, codenamed Angelfish and Swordfish. Both of which will be equipped with the Google Assistant software.

The renders you see above, showcasing the new customisable faces in Android Wear, have been recreated from information provided by an anonymous source.

“These are not “interpretations,” but recreations of primary source material for the sake of anonymity of our source,” the site says.

The larger Angelfish watch on the left will reportedly be a completely standalone watch with GPS and 4G LTE connectivity.

Meanwhile the Swordfish device on the right will be a more scaled back model more suited to pairing with an Android or iOS smartphone.

Swordfish will be much thinner smaller and lighter, according to the report, while also offering support for Google’s Android Wear MODE bands.
