The long-rumored Google Pixel Watch — the company’s first try at a smartwatch — looks to be getting closer to release.
A photo of what looks to be the online handbook for the Pixel Watch was tweeted by Evan Blass, a frequent and accurate leaker, with the message “Won’t be long now.”
There are no mentions of the Pixel Watch, which is true. “Rohan” is the codename for the Pixel Watch, which is consistent with the bulk of leaks thus far.
Interestingly, the screenshot refers to Wear OS 3.1, which is not the current version of the operating system for wearable devices. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 owners may finally take use of the Wear OS 3.2 developer preview that has been available for some time. It goes without saying that the Pixel Watch would be odd if it debuted without Google’s most recent software.
The release date of the Pixel Watch is said to be somewhere in the
Blass, on the other hand, doesn’t really reveal the Pixel Watch’s release date. Weeks or months, depending on how you define “long,” might be included in your description.
The release date might be as soon as the beginning of next month. May 11 and 12 is Google I/O 2022, the company’s annual developer conference, which has in the past been used to announce new hardware, such the original Pixel 3a. We might be in for an interesting few days with the Pixel 6a and the Pixel Watch in the works.
According to Jon Prosser, who leaked information on Apple’s next products, the company will present new products, but they won’t be available for purchase until a few months after the event. According to what I’ve been told, Google will formally announce the Pixel 6a and ‘tease’ the Pixel Watch in July, with the wearable arriving in October with the Pixel 7.” Prosser tweeted a month ago.
Perhaps this information is incorrect, or perhaps the facts have changed since it was first reported. Whatever the case may be, we should have the answer soon enough.
We don’t know much about what the Pixel Watch can do yet. After Google’s $2.1 billion acquisition of Fitbit in 2019, leaks suggest a circular display with an Apple Watch-style crown on the right side and some Fitbit integration into Wear OS.
Colorful Pixel Watch possibilities were also hinted to in Google’s free colouring book for Pixel superfans, which might signal the firm is aiming to undercut its rivals with a lower-priced device.
