The tech world was abuzz when photos of what seems to be an early prototype of the Google smartwatch leaked online Tuesday.

Citing an anonymous source, Android Police claims the Motorola-made Google Watch, which goes by the codename “Gem,” falls under the Nexus line of devices.

The images look grainy at best, but they show what to expect from the Google smartwatch: a square display, a capacitive back button, and two buttons. One of the photos shows the prototype displaying a settings menu.

It remains unclear when the photos were taken, although Android Police believe it existed in 2013, before Google sold its Motorola business unit to Lenovo recently for $2.9 billion.

Meanwhile, Motorola confirmed on Twitter that the company was developing a watch that they aim to release “this year.” It is not yet known if the two devices are related

Rumors of a Google smartwatch also circulated last October, when the tech giant was reportedly close to completing the device with the help of Google-acquired Android watchmaker Wimm.

Google has yet to respond on the issue.
