The Google Pixel Watch just got official – check it out!
At the Google I/O 2022 developer conference today, the search engine giant finally unveiled its long-awaited Pixel Watch to the world.
After much speculation and the occasional leaked image, here’s what the Google Pixel Watch really looks like, as showcased during the I/O event.
Pixel Watch design details
As we expected from leaked images prior to today’s official announcement of the Pixel Watch, its design is quite a refreshing change from the main competition – the Apple Watch Series 7. Mainly due to the fact that the Pixel Watch, despite being a smartwatch, has the more traditional circular form factor, akin to a normal wristwatch.
Although it doesn’t feature a rotating bezel, on the side of the Pixel Watch we get a tactile rotating crown.
As for the color options, while Google hasn’t revealed those yet, industry insiders have previously suggested that the Google Pixel Watch’s recycled stainless steel body will come in three colors:
Of course, the smartwatch’s interchangeable wristband is what really matters when it comes to customization, and we can expect plenty of those – from the simple silicone band showcased today, to the third party ones that are surely to be released in the coming months.
Wear OS improvements, Fitbit and smart home integration
The Pixel Watch will also bring Google Home support, for controlling your smart home devices like lights and thermostats. In addition, Google announced a “deep integration” with Fitbit, meaning the Pixel Watch will be packing all of the health and fitness experiences users would expect on a modern flagship smartwatch.
