Google buys undisclosed smartwatch technology from Fossil for $40m, includes some personnel • Android Police
Ryne Hager:
<p>Google's wearables platform hasn't been as successful as Android itself, but that isn't stopping Google from investing in it further. Today Fossil has announced that Google is acquiring undetermined "smartwatch technology" it is currently developing for a cool $40 million. Together with the IP acquisition, Google is also picking up part of Fossil's research and development team, with the sale set to close this month.

Precise details aren't certain, and we're as curious as you are when it comes to the nature of this new technology, still allegedly in development. All we know is Fossil and Google seem to think it's a pretty big deal. "We’ve built and advanced a technology that has the potential to improve upon our existing platform of smartwatches." said Greg McKelvey, Executive Vice President, and Chief Strategy and Digital Officer at Fossil Group. "Together with Google, our innovation partner, we’ll continue to unlock growth in wearables."

Still, this move is at least partly reminiscent of Google's HTC's hardware team acquisition in 2017-2018. Perhaps in-house wearable hardware may finally be in the pipeline?</p>

It sure looks that way. Indicating that Android Wear - well, WearOS - has not been a success in the market.
