Google to release two Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches in the beginning of 2017
Credible leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) revealed that Google will unveil a pair of smartwatches running Android Wear 2.0 sometime between January and March next year. They are expected to be the first devices running the new and updated version of Google's platform for wearables, which will feature its own app store and an improved Smart Reply feature.

We already know that the smartwatches are code-named Swordfish and Angelfish. The former is a 42mm watch that operates with a single button, supports interchangeable bands, and is going to be sold in silver, titanium, and rose gold colors.

The latter is more technologically inclined, with built-in LTE and GPS connectivity which will let it function as a standalone device that need not be tethered to a smartphone. It's also said to feature a heart rate sensor and three hardware buttons for control.

Below, we have two (supposedly credible) renders of the upcoming smartwatches. As you can see, they are both circular and feature a clean, understated aesthetic typical of Google hardware.
