Google has not released many details about its new smartwatch, but what we do know is that it will have a Qualcomm Exynos 9110 SoC and a co-processor, and a battery that will last at least a day. The new smartwatch should also have a companion app and support for fast pairing.
Osterloh also showed off a demo of the Assistant on the watch, which responds to a simple weather request. In addition, the Pixel Watch will have an LTE connection, which means that it will be able to give you directions without a phone. It will also have Google Wallet, enabling you to pay for things without a wallet.
Speculation has been plentiful about the new watch, and leaks have already begun to surface. The Google Pixel Watch is expected to have a circular face, going against Apple’s tradition of a rectangular design. It will feature a single button on the face, and a small rotating crown on the right side. The crown may be used for navigation, or to control the voice assistant. Other rumors indicate that the new watch could have a 1.5GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The Pixel Watch will also feature a proprietary band. It will be made of recycled stainless steel, and its bands will connect to the watch face through a twisting mechanism. It will also feature a variety of colors, including black, white, and gray. Google is also said to be working on several different types of bands for the new smartwatch, including fabric and Milanese bands. There is no word yet on whether any of these bands will be available on the market, but we will know more when it finally reaches the public.
The smartwatch will be running on the Wear OS platform. Google did not reveal specific details about the watch’s software capabilities, but executives described it as fluid and easy to use. It will be voice-enabled and glanceable, and it will include features such as Google Assistant.
The Pixel Watch’s display is a round display, with a domed glass top. Its body is made from recycled stainless steel and has a tactile scrolling crown. The Pixel Watch is expected to be around half an inch thick and 1.5 inches wide. The display is expected to be at least one inch wide, but there are no details on the resolution or glass protection. The device also features a bottle-cap-shaped crown on the side, a long speaker grill, and two circular cutouts on the left edge.
The new Google Watch will feature built-in fitness tracking from Fitbit. It will offer features such as sleep tracking and continuous heart rate tracking. It will also have a “Daily Readiness Score” feature to indicate if you’re ready for a workout or not.
