Meta Just Killed Its Dual-Camera Smartwatch: Here’s What It Looks Like

Unfortunately, this rear camera made it difficult for another essential feature to work correctly. This feature allowed the watch to act as a controller for other devices, most probably those designed for interacting in the metaverse. It would do this by translating nerve signals into digital commands. It is not yet known if this is the sole reason for the cancelation, but the source also mentioned that costs could also have been a reason for the cancelation, as Meta reported in April 2022 that it would reduce its annual expenses by $3 billion.

Other reported smartwatch features are a 5MP front-facing camera, eSIM support, Wi-Fi and GPS. The watch also had support for heart rate monitoring and activity tracking. Bloomberg also revealed that the prototype they saw had apps for Spotify, WhatsApp and Instagram Stories, as well as photo gallery and calendar apps. In addition, users could manage and install apps from their Facebook accounts and also share their fitness achievements on Facebook and Instagram right from the watch. With so many features, it is no surprise that the smartwatch could only manage 18 hours of battery life.

The provided image also showed a set of contact pins at the bottom of the watch for charging with a proprietary connector. Initially reported to be planned for a summer 2022 release, Bloomberg revealed that Meta’s target was for a spring 2023 release with a price tag of about $349. While “Milan” won’t become a commercial product, Meta is still keen on making wrist-based wearables, and there is a possibility that some of the features of the canceled watch will make it to these products.
