According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Google’s acquisition of WiMM Labs will bear fruit within months, with the launch of its own smartwatch centred around Google Now’s at-a-glance services.

The Journal’s source indicated that the watch will be able to communicate with other devices such as your phone — this likely for tethering in order to gain network connectivity. The use of Bluetooth 4.0 LE is almost certain in this case, due to its low power consumption — battery issues have plagued recent smartwatch launches such as the Galaxy Gear.

We’re likely to see a very bare device in order to keep power consumption to a minimum, and with that, a low price tag is also very likely. Perhaps we’ll get some more hints when Google finally decide to show us what it’s been working on in a week or two.
