    It has been rumored for a while now that Google is working on their own smartwatches to feature the latest and greatest versions of Android Wear. This would be like the Nexus program for smartwatches if you will. Who better to optimize hardware specs with Android Wear?!

    Their is expected to be two Google made smartwatches code named Angelfish and Swordfish. According to rumors we may see these in the fall. A render of the devices has surfaced. It looks like Google will be going with a round watchface. One larger face and one smaller face. The bezel looks reasonable with one device featuring a larger flat bezel while the other device features a smaller rounded bezel. From the images it appears that these devices may not have the moto x "flat tire" syndrome. The strap appears to be rubber. I'd like to see a metal or leather band.

    Would you be interested in Google made smartwatches?

    Whenever Google does release their own smart watches, I will be interested. Looking forward to seeing what the final version looks like and how easy it is to swap bands. I would hope these would come with Mode Bands right from the start, so you could have a rubber band for exercise and a metal or leather band for dressier occasions.

    If AW 2.0 opens up standalone as well as Samsung has done with their Tizen ones BUT with the Android apps to work with vs the lackluster Tizen Store I'll be all over it.

    I'll have to find that watchface (it's note quite perfect, but close - love the shortcut widgets).

    I find the standalone works quite well on my Moto 360. Problem is I find the GPS too inaccurate. Music works great, if not incredibly tempermental to actually get on the watch. Biggest hitch is some apps insist on you being connected to the internet to work, but the phone can indeed be left at home.

    I'm really excited about this. And I'll admit, for fitness I would like a little bigger face than the 360 has.

    I also think NFC (along with maybe a fingerprint sensor for security) would be really terrific.

    That's the Bits watch face. It came with one of the major AW watch updates last year on some watches, it was automatically installed on my G Watch. If it's not already on yours, Bits is available on the Play Store. The picture looks like an enhanced Buts face, but the current one is very close to that.
