2013 is turning out to be the year of the smartwatch, with heavy hitters like Samsung and Sony both releasing wearables of their own. If a new report is true, then both Google and Nokia will be tossing their hats into the smartwatch arena later this month. Newly leaked images of a Nokia branded smartwatch have surfaced, and Google is expected to unveil it's GEM smartwatch later this month as well.




The Nokia device that is seen in the images above can be nothing other than a smartwatch, and we fully expect it to be running some form of Windows Phone OS. Not much else is known though, but if rumors are true then we will see the smartwatch unveiled at an October 22nd event along with five other devices. Google's GEM smartwatch is still a bit of an enigma, and the company is keeping any and all information under tight wraps. Some reports suggest that it will have dual screens, while other suggest it will look similar to Samsung's Galaxy Gear. Google is expected to launch the GEM at the Android 4.4 KitKat event where the Nexus 5 will be unveiled.
