Facebook, oops, sorry, it seems we’re now supposed to refer to it as “Meta”? I highly doubt my parents will remember that, and it’s likely the majority of Facebook’s users won’t care either. Anyway, Meta has been making some slight technological strides in recent times, partially thanks to their acquisition of firms like Oculus. As the concept of the “Metaverse” remains distant on our horizons, Meta still needs to create technology for us dwellers in the real world. One such technology they’re developing is a new intelligent wristwatch with a notably unique characteristic that sets it apart from its peers.

Reportedly, leaked images of the new Meta Watch (not to be confused with the ones seen in the Medabots series) indicate that the device will sport a small camera notch just below its touchscreen. These images were uncovered within the companion app for Ray-Ban Stories sunglasses, where the watch is apparently identified by the code name “Milan.”

The existence of this fresh version of the smartwatch first began circulating in June, with rumors suggesting the device could feature a detachable rear camera. If speculations hold true, this front-facing camera will support 1080p video calls and incorporate diverse facial recognition features. It will likely also have photo-capturing capabilities, but that’s to be expected.

Previous statements from Facebook/Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg have indicated his disapproval of the leading smartwatches in the market, crafted by tech giants like Google, Samsung, or Apple. Zuckerberg has criticized these watches as “closed platforms,” and even took a quick jab at Apple, alleging that their ad-tracking practices had supposedly hindered Meta’s Q4 revenue objectives.
