Google is rumoured to be close to releasing a smartwatch, making it the third major company to be linked with the latest tech device.
It is believed the Nexus watch will be codenamed Gem, and announced on October 31.
Google Now functionality is reportedly at the centre of the product and, if used, would enable the user to link their watch to their smartphone.
Information such as calendar alarms, emails and text messages could all be pushed to the watch’s display.
Samsung’s Galaxy Gear uses Google's Android operating system and acts primarily as a notification system, offering users previews of text messages and emails, and a way of controlling music playing from larger devices.
It also includes a low–resolution camera and voice recognition, allowing users to dictate emails and messages.
It can also make phone calls, count users steps – and tell the time.
Apple's iWatch is believed to be launched in the second half of 2014, and though it has not indicated whether it is working on a smartwatch, in July the company filed an application to register "iWatch" as a trademark in Japan, under product category for a computer or watch device.
In May, Apple CEO Tim Cook did not rule out the possibility of Apple developing a wearable product when he spoke at AllThingsD conference.
He said: "It's an area that's ripe for exploration, it's ripe for us to get excited about. Lots of companies will play in this space."
