Google will launch two new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches in 2017

The Verge has disclosed in a recent report that tech giant Google plans to launch two new flagship smartwatches in the first quarter of 2017.

The report about Google's two new forthcoming smartwatches is based on the information shared by Jeff Chang -- product manager of Android Wear at Google -- during the course of a recent interview with The Verge.

Chang told The Verge that the two new smartwatches being built by Google for launch in the 2017 first-quarter will be the company's flagship Android Wear 2.0 devices. Chang also said that the two smartwatches will be the first devices to launch with the new Android Wear 2.0 platform, the fifth and final developer preview of which will be released by Google in January 2017.

According to the details divulged by Chang, Google's two new flagship Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches are the result of the company's collaboration with a third-party manufacturer, similar to the collaboration which Google had worked out with HTC for producing the original Nexus handset.

Despite the fact that Chang refrained from disclosing the specifications for Google's upcoming Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches, the revelation that Google will be launching two new smartwatches is in line with an Android Police rumor this July, about Google's forthcoming big, sporty smartwatch -- with LTE, GPS, and a heart-rate monitor -- codenamed 'Angelfish'; and a smaller model, which will be more of a fitness tracker, codenamed 'Swordfish.'
