No doubt that the Pixel watch is a competition for Apple watches and other smartwatches, it is just a matter of how big or small the competition is, if and when it will be. Pixel watch would be the first smartwatch from Google which makes it the ultimate Wear OS there will ever be. It seems as given that Google, one day or the other will launch its own line of smartwatches the question is “when?”.
PIXEL LAUNCH DATE
The much-awaited Pixel watch has seen leaks and long discussions, but never a confirmation. The smartwatch was first rumored to be released in 2018 and then again in 2019 along with the Pixel 4. Though the latest updates pointed to its launch in the October of 2020, well that didn’t happen. Google already has its Wear OS that works on both, Android as well as iPhone.
PIXEL WATCH PRICE
We can’t be expecting this to be the cheapest among fine smartwatches but, we sure can expect the Pixel watch to be undercut to that of Apple (series 6) or Samsung watch 3, as both of these have a starting rate of $400. So, the Pixel watch might fall slightly under this rate.
THE PIXEL DESIGN
Though we have a bunch of rumored information on its price and launch dates, we have interestingly had no glance whatsoever of its appearance. The designer James Tsai has come to our rescue and given us his interpretation by releasing what he expects the Pixel watch to be designed as. He also allowed himself to come up with quirky Google inspired names for the colors, like Milk White, Sweet Papaya, and Boba Black which only makes us want them more. Google are you listening?
