The arrival of a Made by Google family wristwatch seems unavoidable, but progress has been glacial. Following the confirmation last week by two reputable sources of the existence of a linked watch made by Google, potentially referred to as the Pixel Watch, several supposed official drawings of the smartwatch have surfaced.
It is implied that these renderings are the same ones used to create recreated images of the smartwatch in April, which would mean these images are eight months old at this point. In turn, there is a good chance that the design or some specific details are no longer quite precise.
To support this theory, an image showing Google Maps, but with a slightly different design than the one, Google has since released on Wear OS 3 on the Galaxy Watch 4. In alleged renderings, the product is referred to as “Google Pixel Watch And there’s a “Buy” button that would be online with the Google Store. The product is described as “round” and “bezel-less” and as a device that transports “the unit between hardware and software.
A render also shows a user interface for heart rate data. While reporting this week mentioned that Google was working on Fitbit Integration for this product, these seemingly older renderings still seem to represent Google Fit. One of the dial complications shows two rings, aligned with Fit’s M where the minutes and heart points.
According to current sources, the “Pixel Watch” will be released in 2022, maybe as early as Spring. To compete with the Apple Watch, the device’s price is projected to be on the upper end.
