Google Watch was canceled at the last minute way back in 2016

Google has actually been at the forefront of the relatively young smartwatch market at the start. Samsung's first-ever Galaxy Gear ran a modified version of Android back in 2013, three years before the Apple Watch launched. Since then, Android for wearables has undergone at least two major branding changes.
