Google has unveiled its latest flagship phones, as well as its first smartwatch, the Pixel Watch. It runs Wear OS 3.5, but it is mostly like Fitbit watches on the inside because all of its fitness features are taken directly from it.
Google Pixel Watch will be available in a single 41mm size, but with two different Wi-Fi and LTE variants. It has a 1.2-inch circular screen with a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits and Always On support. It appears to be a regular wrist watch because the entire UI is black and blends well with the thick black bezel around it.
The dome-shaped dial completes the look, and the stainless steel chassis ensures durability. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, and the only physical button for scrolling through the UI is on the right side. Its 5ATM water resistance makes it suitable for swimming and showering.
It includes standard health monitoring features like a heart rate sensor and an ECG sensor for more accurate readings. It has many Fitbit team integrations for accurate algorithms that allow for better health tracking. It can even notify you when you need to take a break.
Google has used the Exynos 9110 chip for the watch, which has been in use since 2018, instead of its custom Tensor chip for its smartphones. It has 2GB of RAM and Google claims that the battery will last all day.
The Google Pixel Watch (Wi-Fi) will cost $350, while the LTE version will cost $400. There will be several straps to choose from, as well as a silicon “Active” band in the box. There are also woven, metal, and leather bands.
