Google Pixel Smartwatch Release Date
Evan Blass has revealed that the Google Pixel Smartwatch will make its first appearance along with the Pixel 3 and second-gen Pixel Buds 2 during Google’s fall hardware event. Since Google has a tendency to refresh its Pixel phones in October, then its fans could expect the Pixel watch during that month. When it comes to the availability, the biggest search engine company would sell them via its own site and wireless carriers and major retail stores.
Besides the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and second-gen Pixel Buds, a reliable source tells me — with high confidence — that Google's fall hardware event will also introduce a Pixel-branded watch. Have a great summer!

As for the design, there are still no leaked images of the Google Pixel Smartwatch available. But then, many are expecting that Google will design smaller, sleeker, and aesthetically attractive smartwatches that would help it contend against the Apple Watch.
It is also worth mentioning that the company is working on three different smartwatches. With that, it’s safe to assume that there could be a model concentrated on sports tracking and others devoted to style. Also, Google has to find a balance between features, design, and price. It also has to make sure that the devices appear good on male and female wrists.
The Google Pixel Smartwatches are predicted to have superior specs with the stock version of Wear OS. These watches are expected to be engineered with Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 3100 chipset. This processor will be coupled with the ARM Cortex-A7 architecture and Adreno 304 graphics processor. It will be manufactured using 28nm process technology.
According to Wearable, Qualcomm already revealed that the new processor will have support for built-in features like Wi-Fi, LTE, GPS, pedometer, Bluetooth, fitness features and heart rate sensor. Aside from that, the chipmaker already set that the Snapdragon 3100 would make its first appearance this fall.
Going back to the features, it is expected that the Google Pixel Smartwatch will deliver at least three days of battery life. It is worth noting that a longer battery life would mean the fitness features and sensors will be capable of lasting longer. The Wear OS will have a boosted battery saver mode, but it will limit the number of features the users can utilize when it’s turned on.
In addition, the consumers could expect that the Google Pixel Smartwatch will flaunt either an advanced facial recognition or in-display fingerprint sensor. It is also expected that the smartwatches will offer water- and dust-resistance so that the owners can wear them while they’re swimming. It will also let its users track their workout in their local swimming pool without worrying about ruining their watch.
The users would also appreciate it if it arrives with tons of fitness tracking abilities. Apple, Garmin, Fitbit, and even Samsung have been concentrating heavily on health and fitness features on its wearable gadgets. The health tracking features would let the Google Pixel Smartwatch contend better with Apple and other competitors.
As of now, these are the known details about the Google Pixel Smartwatch. But since these specifics are based on rumors and speculations, it’s advised to be taken with skepticism. Always stay tuned for further announcements regarding Google’s upcoming wearable device.
