Facebook plans to release a watch with a detachable display & camera

meta Platforms is known by many for the much-discussed social media platform Facebook. However, the activities extend beyond that. For example, it was announced last year that the company is also developing its own smartwatch. It promises to be a very special wearable with a detachable display and two cameras, which can be taken off the wrist to take photos and videos. You can then share this directly via apps such as Facebook and Instagram, The Verge reported in mid-2021. The smart watch is expected in the summer of 2022, according to the website.

Today LetsGoDigital brings new information about the expected Meta smartwatch. We came across a patent that describes a very advanced watch with a detachable display, multiple cameras and many features we haven’t seen in smartwatches before.


This is a smartwatch with a detachable display. There are multiple cameras integrated into the screen – at least two, the documentation mostly assumes three. Use different types of lenses—such as macro lenses, telephoto lenses, optical zoom lenses, and wide-angle lenses. By using multiple lenses, users can easily adjust the camera’s field of view.

The Facebook smartwatch has a second display, and it also has multiple cameras—with different types of lenses. The second monitor has the same form factor as the first monitor. The user can easily remove the screen from the case. The casing then remains on the user’s wrist along with the wrist strap. Displays are interchangeable but can also be used for AR/VR/MR purposes
