We recently heard that the new Google Nexus smartwatch will be called the Google Gem, although it is not clear as yet on whether this is the devices final name or a codename for the watch.
We previously heard that Google may make the Google Gem official on the 31st of October, the device is expected to be released at the same time as Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
According to a recent report, one of the main features of the Google Gem will be Google Now, and the watch is said to come with a number of Google Now features.
Google are apparently working on the device at the moment, before their official unveiling, and one of the things they are apparently focusing on is battery life.
The Google Gem is said to use Bluetooth 4.0 LE, which is designed to be more battery friendly, to communicate with your smartphone or tablet.
This is the second time that a launch date of the 31st of October for the Google Gem and Android 4.4 Kit Kat has been mentioned, so it could possibly be the correct release date for the device.
Google are also expected to launch the new Google Nexus 5 recently, we are expecting to hear more about the device tomorrow, as all the rumors we have heard have mentioned the 15th of October for the Nexus 5 announcement.
