Report: Facebook smartwatch no one wants has been put on hold, thankfully


  • Meta has halted the development of what has become known as the Facebook watch.
  • The watch likely would have featured a unique, dual-camera design.
  • The watch would likely have also included a feature that would allow the user to control other devices via gestures.

Meta (formerly Facebook) appears to be backing off of its plans to release the heavily rumored Facebook watch, switching its focus to other wrist-worn devices.

Meta has been rumored to be working on a smartwatch for roughly two years. While many features of the Facebook smartwatch were similar to existing devices, Meta was working on a couple of unique abilities but was unable to make them work the way it wanted. According to Bloomberg, the company has now halted development.
