Upcoming Google Nexus smartwatches Angelfish and Swordfish shown in alleged render


If the render you're seeing above is anything to be trusted, then Google is building a pair of elegant, understated Nexus smartwatches with the intent of releasing them in the near future. Reportedly, these guys are code-named Angelfish and Swordfish (in line with the Nexus tradition of using fishy names), and will serve as introductions to Google's upcoming Android Wear 2.0 platform.

According to Android Police's "extremely confident" information, the Angelfish is 0.55in (14mm) thick and measures 1.71in (43.5mm) in diameter. It will be the more premium model with a larger watchface and functionality like LTE, GPS, and a heart rate monitor. This will enable it to function as a standalone device, taking advantage of Android Wear 2.0's native apps.

Meanwhile, the Swordfish will be a less involved smartwatch with basic notification and communication functionality. It measures 1.65in (42mm) in diameter and a delicate 0.41in (10.6mm) in thickness. Reportedly, this one will be sold in silver, titanium, and rose gold finishes. It will also be compatible with Google's interchangeable MODE bands, while the same won't apply for the bigger Angelfish.

The watches are expected to debut alongside Android Wear 2.0 in the Fall.
