Google is finally developing its own branded smartwatch, according to a source close to the project.

Reports suggest that the upcoming wearable — currently codenamed “Rohan” — will be Google’s first expansion into the wearables market despite other companies such as Samsung creating smartwatches based on the Android system. The tech giant’s Pixel hardware division is in charge of development and will keep Rohan separate from its other Fitbit subsidiary, although there’s no confirmation about whether it’ll actually be called the Pixel Watch.

As you’d expect, the smartwatch will come with all the usual features the industry is now accustomed to after numerous generations of Apple Watches and Galaxy Watches, such as fitness tracking, a heart rate monitor, and a step counter. It’ll also probably run on Google’s very own Wear OS, although the company is currently in the process of revamping the operating system with the latest Wear OS 3.

Of course, Google has yet to officially announce any plans on developing a smartwatch, so those looking forward to it should stay tuned for more potential updates to come.

Elsewhere in tech, the FTC is trying to block NVIDIA’s acquisition of ARM with a new lawsuit.
