This morning I mentioned that Google may be naming a new watch Tacto… but Fusion, Altos and Pillar may also be in the mix… BUT during some more digging, I discovered that Google now owns the premium, category killer domain name SmartWatch.com and SmartWatch.net which they have just revealed via whois.
Google appears to have acquired the domain SmartWatch.com with-in the purchase of WIMM Labs or used the WIMM Labs name to acquire the domain on or about Late February 2012 or early March 2012.
Google also used WIMM Labs to purchase the SmartWatch.net domain name on May 8, 2012 from the past owner who had the domain listed / parked with Afternic.
Google transferred in about 40+ domain names total yesterday relating to watches, most were likely tied with the WIMM Labs purchase or the WIMM name was used after Google purchased it to acquire the domains. Those domains include:
I think one thing is pretty clear, Google is launching a new smartwatch and the name is likely in this list!
