- Facebook is working on a smartwatch with a display slot.
- The watch is processed within the Facebook View app.
The smart watch Space is heating up again thanks to the urgency of Google and Samsung Wear OS 3 As an alternative to the device, the Conqueror wore everything from Apple. But it looks like Facebook (aka Meta) wants to get into the manufacturing process as well, and this first product looks pretty weird.
