Google shares a first look at the upcoming Pixel Watch
The Pixel Watch will launch in the fall alongside the Pixel 7 smartphone.
The Google I/O developer conference is underway and the company continues to drop announcements, including a preview of the upcoming Pixel Watch. The watch may be Google’s worst-kept secret in recent years, but we finally got an official reveal.
The Pixel Watch will arrive this fall alongside the upcoming Pixel 7. It features a circular dome design with a “tactile” crown. It’s made with all-recycled stainless steel and has customizable bands that you can switch out easily.
The watch will run on a new and improved version of the WearOS 3 operating system. It will feature a refreshed UI that features better navigation and notifications, as well as a handful of other improvements.
You’ll also be able to use the Pixel Watch with Google Maps and the upcoming Google Wallet without even having your phone present.
This integration will help users maintain their health, with fitness goals and activity tracking. Additionally, it’ll feature heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and many more health and fitness features found in Fitbit devices.
Google’s Pixel Watch will release alongside the Pixel 7 later this year. In fact, Google is gearing up for a release in the fall. And we’ll likely learn a lot more about the upcoming wearable in the coming months.
