Some previous hints from Fitbit suggest that the company is preparing a new Wear OS smartwatch.

An APK teardown by XDA Developers reveals some hints in Google Play Services' latest beta may point toward a potential Fitbit watch launch.

According to the beta version of Google Play Services v22.32.12, a new Fitbit smartwatch software is on its way.

In this string, the watch is referenced with Google Pay support, rather than Fitbit Pay which is the payment system for Fitbit devices.

As stated in the code, "You can pay everywhere Google Pay is accepted."

Google could also simply be extending its payment system to Fitbit's trackers.

There are rumors of upcoming Sense 2 and Versa 4 to feature Google Pay as their contactless payment system.

Overall, these APK reports indicate that Google intends to integrate its services deeper into Fitbit.
