Google launched its first smartwatch, the Google Pixel Watch, in October 2022 at the ‘Made By Google’ event. Reports suggest that the tech giant is now preparing to launch the successor to the wearable, the Pixel Watch 2, later this year, alongside the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. It is believed that the upcoming device could be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9110 SoC, which first appeared in the Galaxy Watch in 2018. The use of this chip could provide improved battery life for the device. The Pixel Watch 2 is also expected to feature Google’s new Material You design language.
At the I/O 2022 event, Google teased the Pixel Watch and then launched it a few months later in October 2022, along with the Google Pixel 7 series. With Google I/O 2023 starting on May 10, it is possible that the company may provide an early preview of the Pixel Watch 2 and the Pixel 8 phones.
The Google Pixel Watch is priced at $349.99 (approximately Rs. 28,700) for the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-only model, while the LTE model, along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, costs $399.99 (approximately Rs. 32,800). It runs on WearOS 3.5 and features a 1.2-inch AMOLED touch display with always-on mode and up to 1,000 nits of brightness. The device is powered by the Exynos 9110 SoC, coupled with a Cortex M33 coprocessor and 2GB of RAM. It also includes a heart rate sensor and an ECG tracker.
