A Google Pixel Watch, which has been widely speculated, may be on the way. Google’s new Wear OS, which incorporates features from Tizen and Fitbit, has prompted the company to create new hardware.

When it comes to smartwatches, the Apple Watch 7, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, and any other top-tier models might be serious competition for the Pixel Watch.


Google has been acquiring wearable tech companies like Fitbit and many patents suggest that the Pixel Watch will be released soon. Rumors that the Pixel Watch is genuine and might be on the market within a few months are becoming more prevalent.

One of the fastest-growing consumer electronics categories is smartwatches and fitness trackers. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, as well as the Pixel 6a and Pixel 7 that will be released in the near future, are excellent candidates to serve as an accessory for the company’s Pixel smartphones.

Is there a date set for the release of the Pixel Watch? And how will it appear? What distinguishing characteristics does it have? Here are all the rumoured details regarding the Google Pixel Watch’s debut date, pricing, design, and more. Our Google in 2022 post is also worth a look.


When will the Google Pixel Watch be available?

However, a leaker has claimed that the launch of the Google Pixel Watch will take place during Google I/O in May, and that the watch will be available for purchase by consumers in October.

I’m told that Google will formally announce the Pixel 6a and “tease” the Pixel Watch during Google I/O, which is a developer-focused event, according to Prosser. “Pixel Watch will be officially unveiled and released in October alongside Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.”

It’s probable that the Pixel Watch may debut this spring, according to yet another leak from Evan Blass, who mentions wearOS 3.1 and claims it “won’t be long now.”


At least one new item is expected to be unveiled at Google I/O this year, but it’s not clear which one: the Pixel Watch, the Pixel 6a smartphone — or maybe both devices.

Additionally, the Pixel Watch has cleared the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, which typically occurs closer to launch. As a result, an I/O announcement might be in the works, although it’s unclear whether Google will wait until October.

rumours about the Google Pixel Watch’s pricing

What is the price of the Google Pixel Watch, and when will it be available? If we had to estimate, it wouldn’t be as much as an Apple Watch. Google Pixel Watch price rumours are few and few between, but we’d estimate it to be in the middle of the range. We’d anticipate Google to attempt to undercut the prices of the Apple Watch Series 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 a little bit. When it comes to price, Google’s Pixel 6 series is comparable to or less expensive than the Galaxy S22 and iPhone 13.

Not the cheapest choice, however it might cost between $200 and $350 depending on the model and LTE variations available. For the record, we have no idea what Google’s pricing plan is for other hardware products. According to an insider, the watch will be more expensive than a Fitbit.

Design of the Google Pixel Watch

A prototype of the Google Pixel Watch has purportedly been discovered at a restaurant, allowing the company’s whole design to be revealed. According to Android Central, two buttons can be seen on the right side of the device, which has a circular appearance and what seems to be a crown.

It also looks that the Pixel Watch will employ a proprietary watch band connection, although this has yet to be verified by the manufacturer. While the presence of a heart rate sensor is obvious, the presence of other sensors is not.


‘BioActive Sensor’ Yogesh Brar reports the Pixel Watch will feature the same sensors as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, which implies it might have the ability to track heart rate, ECG, and body fat percentage like the Galaxy Watch 4.

According to Brar’s sources, the Pixel Watch will come in two sizes and at least four colours.

In April, Jon Prosser posted a leaked image of what he claims to be the Google Pixel Watch’s design, showing off what seems to be a physical crown and a rounded style. It was reported by the owner of the watch on Reddit that the crown is comparable to that of the Apple Watch and produces a pleasing click when tapped.


Reddit users also speculated that the watch’s left side may include a speaker grille and microphone but that there isn’t somewhere to put a SIM card.

Around an inch and a half in diameter, the watch face of the claimed prototype has a prominent bezel, and around half an inch in thickness. There is speculation that the charging method might be comparable to Fitbit’s Versa line.

More recently, the leaker published photographs of the Pixel Watch’s marketing materials that seemed to be authentic. According to the photos, the smartwatch will have a circular face and an edgeless display that curves around the circumference. There seems to be just one crown on the watch’s right-hand side, which appears to be the sole physical control for the watch’s functions.


Because of this, the Pixel Watch seems to be a sleek and basic wristwatch, similar to previous Pixel products. In contrast, interchangeable bands would allow users to personalise their devices.

According to 91Mobiles, this picture may be the first official depiction of the Pixel Watch. In addition to showing the curvature of the circular display, the crown on the right side, and a Google Pixel 6-like UI, it also has Fitbit activity complications.

Also, we’ve seen some fantastic concept art Designer James Tsai created the graphics you see here. Playful designs based on Google products, such as “milk white,” “sweet papaya,” and “boba black,” were created by Taiwanese artist Tsai.


Google Pixel Watch colours seem to have been hinted to in a virtual colouring book for Pixel Superfans by the company itself. Think typical colours in a pastel version, including Just Black, Lemon Pop, Pale Yellow, and Dark Olive.

Rather of using the more humorous Google names, a separate colour leak provides only three colours: black, grey, and gold. Although this comes from a single US carrier, it’s conceivable that there are more colours available that aren’t being marketed by this one.

The next-generation Pixel Watch and Pixel Buds might include skin-based touch capabilities, according to a Google patent filing.


Users’ skin might be turned into an expanded control surface for smartwatches and wireless earphones by using sensors embedded in their clothing. This kind of technology is still in its infancy and may never be commercialised. It would, however, set the Pixel Watch apart from other smartwatches.

specifications of Google’s new Pixel Watch

Codenamed Ling, Triton and Sardine, Google’s Pixel Watch models are being developed under the supervision of WinFuture, a German magazine. According to Insider, the initiative is referred to as “Rohan” by Google employees.

These Pixel Watch code names, however, are uncertain as to what they really stand for. Given the titles, it’s possible that the gadgets will come in a variety of sizes and specifications.


Using Fossil’s smartwatch technology, which it purchased last year for $40 million, one may be fashion-oriented. Google’s acquisition of Fitbit might help another become one of the greatest fitness monitors.

There is a rumour from ET News which claims that Google has ordered a significant number of body movement sensors from Samsung. Qualcomm’s newest wearable processor, together with reports of on-board storage and LTE connection, all point to a well-spec’d Pixel Watch.

New reports say that the Pixel Watch will feature a 300-mAh battery, although it is not clear whether this applies to all of Google’s wearables, or just to one particular model of them. If this is accurate, the 300 mAh battery would have the same battery life as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.


Wear OS on Google’s Pixel Watch

Google’s Wear OS software will be included in the Pixel Watch, which comes as no surprise. What, then, might be different or even better about the software?

Third-party smartwatches from TicWatch and Fossil, which run Wear OS, provide heart-rate monitoring through Google Fit, contactless payments with Google Pay, and hands-free access to Google Assistant, as well as a Google Play store for smartwatches. However, the current, more improved Wear OS version works well on Galaxy Watch 4 despite these capabilities’ previous shortcomings.

When new Wear OS-eligible smartwatches are upgraded in early 2022, we should get a clearer idea of what Wear OS looks like without Samsung’s own integrated UI.


It was also reported that the Pixel Watch would contain a basic set of functionality, such as step tracking and heart rate monitoring, according to an Insider. According to the story, Google’s purchase of Fitbit might lead to Wear OS and Fitbit integration nicknamed “Nightlight.”

Fitbit fitness tracking might be included into Google Pixel Watch watch faces, according to 9to5Google. In the Wear OS 3 video, one of the watch faces includes the Fitbit logo with a running count of the number of steps climbed and the number of calories burnt.

It is safe to say that Google’s software is always improving and developing. Wear OS is a favourite of one of our writers, and he has some specific requests for Google about the Pixel Watch.


Apple Watch vs. Google Pixel Watch: What You Need to Know

The Google Pixel Watch has a chance at beating the Apple Watch, but only if Google puts in the work and includes some standout features. An excellent Wear OS experience that is easy to use and has a large variety of useful applications is required. With Google Assistant and its benefits over Siri on your wrist, Google would also need to seamlessly integrate other Google services like Gmail, Google Photos and Gmail calendars.

A fitness tracker that can compete with the Apple Watch in terms of sensors and exercise tracking is what the Pixel Watch needs to capitalise on its Fitbit purchase. Fitbit’s Active Zone Minutes and Daily Readiness Score are two of the best features.

Finally, for the Pixel Watch to succeed, it will have to provide lower prices and a longer battery life than the Apple Watch.
