Looks like Google will finally release their own smartwatch. After a series of annual rumors, data emerged that the announcement of the device is scheduled for 2022.

The device’s codename is Rohan. At the same time, it is not yet clear whether the watch will be called the Pixel Watch, although this is the most logical option at first glance. It is also reported that the watch will not be cheap and will compete with the Apple Watch.

In addition, the source talks about integrating Fitbit features into the Wear OS that the watch will run on. This aspect was called Nightlight. As a reminder, Fitbit is now owned by Google.

It is also known about the round display, the absence of a physical frame, which may hint at a rounded glass, and the need to charge the watch every day, that is, the novelty cannot boast of autonomy, but in general this is true for most full-fledged smartwatches on the market.

Hyundai and Genesis owners will be able to control their cars with Phone and Apple Watch

At WWDC 2020, Apple announced its CarKey feature, which allows car owners to unlock their cars using the U1 chip on select Phones and Apple Watch smartwatches.

Unfortunately, this feature has been implemented very slowly, as it is only available in some BMW models. Now the situation will change. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Apple CarKey feature is on its way to Hyundai vehicles and the Genesis lineup.

Remember CarKey, Apple’s announced feature a year and a half ago that allows you to unlock and start your car from the Wallet app on your iPhone? I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re not familiar with it, given that Apple hasn’t discussed this feature in a while and it only works on certain BMW models. I was told this would change soon. According to code findings from a few months ago in iOS 15, I’ve heard that the next vehicles to get support for this feature will be Hyundai and Genesis models. I was told that the functionality will appear by the summer.

Mark Gurman

Gurman notes that this partnership with CarKey came as a surprise given Apple and Hyundai’s strange relationship amid rumors of Apple car production about a year ago. At the beginning of last year, there were many reports that a deal between Hyundai and Apple to produce Apple Cars was imminent. But a month later, Bloomberg reported that Hyundai and its subsidiary Kia Motors said they were not in talks with Apple about a self-driving car.

The second strange feature is the two or even three cameras built into this very module with a screen. The patent describes various lenses, including telephoto and macro, but why this is needed in this format is not clear. It probably has something to do with augmented and virtual reality, as well as the upcoming metaverses.

In the case of one of the two modifications equipped with a round screen, this very screen can be rotated by changing the lenses above the camera modules. The block itself with the display is mounted on five magnets.

The watch also has many different sensors. There is a heart rate sensor, a temperature sensor, an infrared sensor, a motion sensor and activity recognition.
