The rumor buzz is mounting and it looks like the Google Pixel Watch may finally become a real and marketed product in the near future. Now we have leaked marketing materials that give us yet another glimpse into the supposed design of the upcoming Wear OS smartwatch.
The blurry images are courtesy of a well-known tipster Jon prosser and Front Page Tech, and are apparently official promotional renderings made by Google – so we might revisit those images when the laptop actually launches.
These new images correspond to unofficial renderings we saw earlier this year from the same source, with the Pixel Watch sporting a very minimal design and almost nothing like bezels on the side of the screen.
With Fitbit added
What we don’t get here are details on the specs or dimensions of the smartwatch – these are just the visuals for now. We’ll have to wait to find out what kind of colors the Pixel Watch will be offered in, how much you should expect to pay for it, and more.
What we do know is that the laptop will come under Wear OS: Google is hoping the Pixel Watch will serve as a showcase for its software capabilities in the same way that Pixel phones are flagship of Android’s potential. . .
A few days ago, we heard that the Pixel Watch could finally see the light of day at some point in 2022, although it has been talked about for years at this point. It’s possible that Google’s acquisition of Fitbit is part of the reason the device is finally moving from development to launch.
Analysis: The smartwatch market is more competitive than ever
It seems the question is when rather than whether the Pixel Watch will launch at this point, and we’re glad it’s on the way: Google neglected Wear OS in recent years, until the major update. this year, and the new wearable should hopefully mean that the smartwatch software invests more time and effort in it.
The Pixel Watch, however, is entering a very strong market. There are some great smartwatches out there right now, including the Apple Watch, which over seven generations has been refined and improved into a genuinely useful and stylish gadget.
We’re also seeing top-tier smartwatches from Garmin popping up every year as well, across the spectrum in terms of features and price. Garmin clothing appeals to everyone from casual runners to serious outdoor enthusiasts, and is packed with features.
Fitbit, now owned by Google, manufactures both the Sense and Versa smartwatches as well as its many fitness trackers, and let’s not forget Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Add in other Wear OS watches like the Fossil line, and the Pixel Watch will have to work hard to stand out.
