Both Google’s newest flagship smartphones and its first-ever wearable, the Pixel Watch, have been announced. It uses Wear OS 3.5, however on the inside, Fitbit watches predominate because all of its fitness functions are directly derived from them.
Although the Google Pixel Watch will only come in one size (41mm), there will be two separate models for Wi-Fi and LTE connections. It sports a tiny 1.2-inch circular screen with a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits and Always On support. It looks like a typical wrist watch because the entire user interface is black and mixes in well with the surrounding thick bezel.
The dome-shaped dial completes the design, and the stainless steel chassis ensures durability. The lone physical button is on the right side and is used to scroll through the user interface (UI). The screen is covered by Gorilla Glass 5. Due to its 5ATM water resistance, it is suitable for showers and swimming.
It includes the standard heart rate sensor and an ECG sensor for more precise readings, along with other health monitoring capabilities. For accurate algorithms that enable improved health tracking, the Fitbit team has integrated a lot of things into it. Even when you need to take a break and rest, it can tell you.
Google has chosen the Exynos 9110 chip for the watch, which has been in use since 2018, as opposed to its proprietary Tensor chip for its smartphones. Google states that the battery should last the entire day and it comes with 2GB RAM.
The Wi-Fi version of the Google Pixel Watch will cost $350, while the LTE version will cost $400. There will be a variety of straps available, and a silicon “Active” band will also be included in the box. Additionally, there are leather, metal, and woven bands.
