In context: Whispers about Google’s smartwatch began to appear in 2018, but until now there was not much to continue with “Pixel Watch”. Thanks to Jon Prosser, who is known as a credible source of Android-related leaks, we can now take a first look at what the Google Pixel Watch might look like and some of the features we can expect.
When Google sent invitations to the Pixel 3 announcement in 2018, many thought that a showcase of the Pixel Watch was imminent, but then it did not happen. It’s been three years and Google has not yet said anything official about the Pixel Watch, but this latest leak suggests the tech giant is still working on it.
Jon Prossers Front Page Tech has released a new video showing the first rendered images of the Google Pixel Watch, giving us a glimpse of what it will look like. These renderings are based on photos that the sweetheart was asked not to share.
The video further informs us that there will be about 20 different bands for the Google Pixel Watch and that the screen has a borderless round design. Like other Android-based smartwatches, Google’s device is expected to have WearOS. Prosser also notes that the UI renderings are based on the software seen in the images, which means that it should be roughly equal to the final product.
There is still a lot to learn about the Pixel Watch, but with Google I / O coming just around the corner, the company may shed light on it. As for a release date, rumors point to a release from October 2021. When it reaches the market, it will likely compete with the Apple Watch Series 6 and other WearOS watches such as the Casio GSW-H1000.
