Google Might Be Working On a New Smartwatch, Report Says

According to new job listings (first spotted by Android Police), it looks like Google may start building its own wearable devices. 'A job listing posted two days ago on the Google Careers site calls for a Vice President of Hardware Engineering for Wearables,' reports Android Police. The description reads, 'As the VP of Hardware Engineering for Wearables, you'll work collaboratively with the Senior Leadership team for Google Hardware and will be responsible for the design, development, and shipment of all Google's Wearable products. You will lead and enable the effectiveness of a large engineering organization primarily based in Mountain View to develop multiple next-generation wearable products simultaneously.' From the report: Google's only current wearable product is the Pixel Buds, which hasn't been a runaway success. It seems extremely unlikely that the company would want a Vice President dedicated to producing earbuds, so it's safe to assume Google has plans for other wearable products, like fitness trackers and/or smartwatches. Another listing is for a 'Wearables Design Manager,' but the description is more vague. 'As the Design Manager of the Wearables design team within the award-winning Google Hardware Design organization, you will be a critical leader and contributor to guide the efforts in defining and evolving what it means to hold 'Google in your hand.''
