IT'S TIME FOR A GOOGLE FITNESS WATCH

DescriptionHERE COMES A Pixel … sport watch?
Google and the Fossil Group announced earlier today that the tech giant is acquiring some of Fossil’s smartwatch intellectual property, suggesting Google may be making its own competitor to the Apple Watch, or, as wishful pundits refer to it, a Pixel watch. It’s not an outlandish idea: As first reported in Wareable, Fossil Group executive vice president and chief digital officer Greg McKelvey says the $40 million deal will result in the launch of “a new product innovation that’s not yet hit the market.”
In 2015, Fossil Group acquired wearable-tech startup Misfit for a reported $260 million.
