The first two Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches by Google were mentioned by some rumors last summer, and now it looks like the Internet search giant is targeting the first quarter of 2017 for their launch.

The global smartwatch market is not going up anytime soon, but this does not mean all big names in the industry are not thinking about it. The first Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches by Google were mentioned by various rumors and leaks since last summer, and now Evan Blass has just confirmed their existence.

Evan Blass mentioned the two devices in a Twitter message but did not offer any detailed information. His message simply reads "Google's two smartwatches will be released with Android Wear 2.0 in Q1 2017" and nothing more. Google unveiled the first details on Android Wear 2.0 back at the I/O conference that took place in May, released three developer preview versions ever since, but announced in September that the launch date had been pushed from this fall to early 2017.

Unfortunately, nothing is official yet. However, a confirmation coming from the leakster widely known as "evleaks" is better than just another rumor. We will keep an eye on new information about the two upcoming smart wearables, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
