The ‘Milan’ smartwatch has been under development for over two (2) years. It has all of the typical smartwatch capabilities, including as activity tracking, music playback, and texting. What sets it apart from the competition is the presence of dual cameras, one (1) on the front, below the display, and one (1) on the back, against the user’s wrist. This may be seen in the image supplied in this article, which is based on a Bloomberg report.

The second camera, which is positioned on the backside of the smartwatch, could be the cause for the cancellation. Users can use this camera by simply removing the watch face from the strap to take a brief photograph. Electromyography malfunctioned as a result of this arrangement. This function is a major priority for Meta because it transfers nerve impulses from the wrist into digital commands. Another benefit is that it uses the user’s hand as the controller for other devices that are leaning toward the metaverse thanks to the feature “electromyography.”

If the smartwatch code-named Milan gets approved, it might be released in the coming Spring of 2023 for roughly USD 349.00.

According to Meta executives, they’re still working on other smartwatches that are more in accordance with their metaverse’s vision and don’t have any difficulties with the smartwatch in question.
