We’ve been waiting for the Google Pixel Watch for years.
Though smartwatch fans have had a long wait, this smartwatch might finally be arriving. Google and smartwatch fans have taken to the internet to share their excitement and predictions about the watch; the expectation is already very high.
But what has caused the sudden excitement for the Google Pixel Watch if there’s no official release?
We’ve got all the news you need to know about the possible Google Pixel Watch, including rumored releases and possible features. Keep reading to find out more.
What Are The Key Google Pixel Watch Rumors?
All smartwatch news comes from two sources: official launches or rumors/leaks. Big brands try to keep their word under wraps, but naturally, this information gets leaked from time to time.
In the case of the Google Pixel Watch, the recent fuss has been caused by Twitter user “Evleaks.” This self-proclaimed “King of the leakers” revealed that the Google Pixel Watch is currently being stored under the codename Rohan.
The screenshots from Evleak’s Twitter also suggest the new wearable will run on Wear OS 3.1, the latest version. This positions the watch as an essential competitor against brands like Apple and Samsung. There’s a new watch on the block!
When Can We Expect A Launch Date?
Of course, we don’t know the exact time or date for this launch. However, as always, rumors are flying around about possible launch dates.
Some sources cite May 11th, some state July, and others predict October 2022.
May 11th seems like a reasonable date, as the I/O Conference takes place on the same day. This is Google’s annual developer meet, so it only seems fitting that the next smartwatch is released at a popular conference.
We’ll likely see this watch before the end of the year!
Do We Know Any Google Pixel Watch Features?
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. What features do we know already?
Features that are expected on Google’s flagship wearable include:
- Minimal and sleek design – lightweight to wear.
- No buttons on the watch, except for a crown on the side.
- Multiple bands for sports, fashion, and all purposes.
- Wear OS software system.
- Typical Google features – Google Pay, Google Maps, Google Assistant, and Google Fit.
These features are already exciting, but hopefully, we’ll know more from the I/O Conference on May 11th!
Google also recently received FDA approval for a new feature under the Fitbit brand – could this become a part of the Google Pixel Watch too?
The Bottom Line
It’s easy to get excited about the Google Pixel Watch. However, take any leaked information or dates with a pinch of salt. This rumored watch has been in the works for years, so we need to be patient. Whether you’re a Google fan or not, this watch will make waves in the smartwatch industry!
