Google’s Pixel smartphones have been a hit, and the company also makes other gadgets like the Nest Hub 2 smart display and the Pixelbook Go laptop.

So, why hasn’t the corporation attempted to create its own smartwatch? It’s a great topic with no easy solution, especially because so many Apple Watch competitors use the company’s Wear OS platform.

When will the Pixel Watch be available?

We’ve been waiting for the Pixel Watch to be officially recognised for what feels like an eternity, with Google first stating that it was working on a watch in 2018 and rumours about one dating back even farther.

Miles Barr, Google’s director of engineering for Wear OS, claimed in a 2018 interview with Tom’s Guide that it wasn’t quite ready for primetime yet. “I don’t believe we’ve arrived at a one-size-fits-all watch. For the time being, our focus is on our partners.”

The Pixel 6a, which was announced alongside the Watch’s tease at I/O ’22, lends credence to another of Prosser’s claims that the Watch will be available in October alongside the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones (also aligning with Google promise of autumn).

Google even revealed an unexpected preview of the future Pixel Tablet.

What is the price of the Pixel Watch?

Despite numerous rumours, there has been no indication of a pricing for the Pixel Watch.

Still, we may make a prediction based on the price of gadgets like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, which starts at £249/$249 and goes up to £309/$329 for a bigger model with 4G. We don’t rule out the possibility that the Pixel Watch will be similar.

What functions does the Pixel Watch have?

Google revealed official press shots of the watch as part of the presentation. Confirming previously leaked images from sources. Like Jon Prosser and confirming its sleek, circular form.

While we don’t yet have details on the Watch’s casing dimensions, internal technology. Or full feature set, Google’s I/O tease did give us some insight into its design. With a “bold circular, domed design” and a “tactile crown.”

According to reports, Pixel Watch Release Date the casing is composed of recycled stainless steel. And looks to support unique silicone straps that twist into the body.

In terms of software, we already know that the Pixel Watch will run Google’s Wear OS, which is expected to be version 3.0 when it launches; however, notorious leaker Evan Blass previously tweeted a screenshot of what appears to be an online manual for the Watch, with ‘Wear OS 3.1’ selected in the dropdown menu.

The Pixel Watch will also include “Fitbit’s industry-leading health and fitness tools — directly on your wrist,” according to Google (again, from I/O 2022).
