a Bluetooth SIG listing suggests that three Pixel Watches are on the way
Earlier this week, rumours began to circulate that Google will be making two different types of smartwatches: the Google Pixel Watch and the Pixel Wear Fit. Despite this, a recent Bluetooth certification suggests that there may be three Google smartwatches in the works.
Google’s Pixel Watch was forced to undergo a certification procedure before it could go on sale because of this. Additionally, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has confirmed that the wearable has gotten permission, and the listing verifying this shows three model numbers—GWT9R, GBZ4S, and GQF4C—which are distinct from one another.
There are, of course, a number of possibilities as to why this is the case. However, it’s possible that these labels reflect several Pixel Watch models, or different versions of the same model.
Take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. There are several variations of the watch, and each one is identified by a separate model number. According to the three model numbers, it’s probable that the Pixel Watch will have various sizes or connection choices.
Various model numbers may also signify regional variants that need to be compatible with different cellular bands, as Android Police points out.
There are still a few steps to go before the Pixel Watch is ready for prime time, but this certification indicates that the device is nearing completion. When Google sought to trademark “Pixel Watch” with the US Patent and Trademark Office, we need the FCC’s final clearance before we can proceed.
Bluetooth SIG information is useful, but FCC listings could include even more details. Even if Google comes out with a million different models, each one should have its own page. An attempt to show the contrasts between them in a clear and concise manner
During the last few days, we’ve also had the opportunity to see what is supposedly the Pixel Watch itself. We’ve seen the Watch from almost every angle and seen what it looks like when it’s being worn, despite the fact that it was allegedly left behind at a restaurant. According to reports, the Pixel Watch may use sensors similar to those in Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4.
The latest speculation is that the Pixel Watch will be unveiled at Google I/O 2022, which takes place next month. Even if the rumour of a Google Pixel 6a joins the wristwatch, we can expect to hear more about Android 13 when it launches later this year.
