You want a smartwatch but you're a die-hard Google fan. Life has been hard for you. Apple has owned the smart watch arena and you've been left behind. TicWatch Pro, which runs on Google's Wear OS in here for you. This smartwatch brings Google Assistant, Google Pay, Google Fit and even Spotify to your wrist. And hopefully you have a big wrist, because this watch is HUGE.

It could let Google know where you go and what your heart rate is and then you get followed around with targeted ads based on that.
