The Google Pixel Watch could finally launch this year based on the latest leaks, with a Pixel event next to the Pixel 6 seems possible. Considering everything we've heard about a Google Watch, we can assume it's under development, but the big question is when it will arrive, as the above date is uncertain.
Like comment Pixel phones are a showcase for Android , the Google Pixel Watch should be an example of Wear's full potential OS - and considering the target big update presented to Google IO, we thought the watch wasn 'twas not far behind, so a launch this year would make sense.
It 's hard to be overly optimistic, however, when several rumored launch windows have followed one another. A suggested leak the watch Google would be announced alongside the Google Pixel 4 , but this did not happen.
A first report in mid-2018 from reliable Twitter leaker @Evleaks says he had information from a reliable source that a watch Google was in development. Its source said it would be announced alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL , but that - maybe obviously - didn't work that doesn't happen either.
But a leak in April 2021 shows a supposed image of the smartwatch (whether it's real or the rendering isn't clear), suggesting it might be ready to go out, and Google itself has confirmed it's working on one Fitbit premium running Wear OS, which could become the Pixel Watch.
Below we will detail everything we know so far about the new watch. Then, further down, we've put together a list of the features we'd like from Google's first flagship watch. Latest News
Leak suggests Google Pixel Watch data could land on October 19 alongside the Pixel 6.
Get straight to the point
- What is it? The first flagship watch designed by Google
- How much will it cost? Probably a high end cost, but no details yet
- When is it coming out? Maybe in October with the Pixel 6
Google Pixel Watch release date and price
An exact release date for the rumored Google Pixel Watch n ' is not clear - just predictions based on leaks. If it's to land in 2021, our best guess would be on the Google Pixel 6 launched on October 19, and indeed it was spread more once .
Of course, Google Watch is launching rumors that have wrongly predicted its release before - a tweetof the famous leaker Evleaks claiming a "reliable source " said it would be announced alongside the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in 2018, then rumored asserted that the Google watch would land on October 15, 2019 during the Pixel 4 launched, but of course nothing happened and we are still waiting.
It is possible that the Pixel Watch could benefit from Google's acquisition of Fitbit , who could see the wearable skills of this last company leveraged Google smartwatch hardware, but this deal was only finalized that 'in January 2021 . A smartwatch based on Fitbit technology is unlikely to land in the near future, although Google has announced that a Fitbit premium running Wear OS is in the works.
Better yet, at Google IO 2021, the company announced that Wear OS incorporates features from Samsung Tizen OS, which might suggest what's going on in the Google Watch.
We also heard that Google has ordered processors from Samsung (according to ETNews ) which would be able to detect body movements. There is no guarantee that this is a smart watch (they mightbe for a Pixel phone), but a portable device would be fine. So that's solid proof that some form of Pixel Watch is in the works.
However, a codename has also been spotted for a device called the medaka. A medaka is a small fish (Google still uses codenames of sea creatures for its products) and the device is said to have no notch, so some have figured it out. was the Pixel Watch.
This is also a pretty old leak. But in April 2021, the leaker Jon Prosser released rendered images based on the information it received, including a potential release date of October 2021, which matches the usual release window for Pixel flagship phones.
Prosser also suggested that the watch could arrive in octobre, supposedly around the usual exit window for the flagship. Google Pixel phones, but the timeline was fungible.
As for the price, we currently have no idea how much this watch will cost. Considering the Pixel lineup. is generally high-end products with generally flagship prices, we would expect this, but currently have no evidence to support this.
Google Pixel Watch News and Rumors
In terms of specs, not much is known about the Google Pixel Watch, although one source suggests it will use a 5nm chipset - probably the same as the Samsung Galaxy Watch It is said that Active 4 a. You can expect a 5nm chipset to be a lot more powerful than what we've seen in current Wear OS watches.
We've also seen a Google patent , which details a control system gesture that would allow a smartwatch to detect the movements you make with your arm, wrist or fingers.
For example, you can clench your fist to launch the Google Assistant and open your fist to close it. These gestures would be done on the arm or the hand on which the watch is worn. However, patents are not always used, so there is no guarantee that we will see this.
There could also behave a big emphasis on fitness, both because Google buys Fitbit, and because Google sent out a poll asking people for features they would like to see in Wear OS, and those features included things like SPO2 (oxygenation) tracking, sleep apnea detection, sleep analysis, heart rate alerts, recovery time monitoring, stress tracking, pairing of medical devices and gym equipment, rep detection; and calorie tracking.
Sure, they're unlikely to all get added, but some might be, and it shows Google is thinking about the health and fitness.
As for specs, the Pixel Watch is likely to run Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus chipset, which meanse lots of power to run your favorite apps on your wrist.
