Leaks suggest the Pixel Watch has a round bezel-less design and will have proprietary bands. In my opinion, the leaked design of the Pixel Watch is exactly what I’ve wanted from a smartwatch for a while now.
This being a Google-made wearable, the device will likely sport the Wear OS 3 platform. It was co-developed by Google and Samsung, uniting the wearable operating systems to create a unified Android wearable platform. So far, it’s been a hit, though it’s yet to launch on other devices besides the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
Since the launch of the Apple Watch, there’s yet to be an Android watch that is as good or better. The Galaxy Watch 4 has come close, but still not quite full parity. The Pixel Watch is reportedly going after the Apple Watch, with a price to match. It’s been speculated that the watch will be priced higher than current Fitbit offerings.
Though the watch was supposed to have launched with the Pixel 6, it was delayed due to the chip shortage, Prosser said in his video. Now, the launch is reportedly slated for Q1 2022 meaning it might only be a matter of months before we finally have a real Apple Watch competitor.
