Written by Mubarak H.

It’s been around a long time since Google Launched Wear OS, in the past called Android Wear, however despite everything we don’t have any wearable, for example, a smartwatch or wellness tracker from Google itself yet. In any case, as per an ongoing activity posting, Google is hoping to enlist a Vice President, Hardware Engineering and a Design Manager for the wearables division. This posting unequivocally alludes to the way that Google may be truly thinking about building its very own wearable gadget, undoubtedly under the Pixel marking.

As indicated by the posting, Google is searching for a VP to lead its wearables group and one of the duties incorporates regulating the plan, improvement and shipment of all Google’s wearable items. The competitor would likewise be required to “create inventive gadgets tending to a wide range of employments, highlights, and value focuses.” The posting proceeds to express that the applicant will work together with the senior administration group for Google Hardware and will likewise be required to build up “various cutting edge wearables items.”

At whatever point this position is filled, we could be taking a gander at numerous wearable gadgets from Google not long from now. This could incorporate smartwatches, wellness trackers or even both. The second employment posting is for a Wearables Design Manager, who’ll be in charge of the genuine look and feel of the wearable.

Google doesn’t have any experience building smartwatches, which is the reason in January the Mountain View organization hit an arrangement with Fossil for $40 million (generally Rs. 280 crores) for their licensed innovation for smartwatches. Wear OS is still route behind Apple’s watchOS as far as marketshare, so this could be Google at last bringing issues into its own hands to right the ship.

We began hearing gossipy tidbits around the center of a year ago that Google may dispatch its own Pixel smartwatch, notwithstanding, in September, the organization let those bits of gossip go. Generally, LG, Huawei, and Fossil are likely the best three makers reliably producing new Wear OS smartwatches. Google’s wearables stage additionally got a lift as of late with its ongoing ‘H Update’ and Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Wear 3100 portable stage intended for smartwatches.

We can anticipate the following rush of updates to Wear OS at the current year’s Google I/O in May and in case we’re fortunate, we may get a mystery of a Google-marked smartwatch as well.
