Meta halts development of smartwatch with two cameras

Meta halts development

Facebook’s parent company, Meta Platforms Inc., has stopped the development of a dual-camera smartwatch and is instead working on other devices for the wrist, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The device, which has been in development for at least two years, is designed to include many features common to other smartwatches, such as activity tracking, music playback, and messaging. A prototype of the now-discontinued device includes dual cameras, a key differentiator from market leaders like the Apple Watch.

According to images and video of a prototype seen by Bloomberg, one camera was placed below the screen and the other sat at the back against the user’s wrist.
