the expected Google Pixel Watch, which will be Google’s first smart watch, has been leaked in a new image before its official launch. The render, shared by 91Mobilesreveals in great detail the box —and more specifically the front part— of the smartwatch, as well as an interesting integration with one of the companies that the Mountain View firm acquired in 2021.
The Google Pixel Watch, whose code name is ‘Rohan’, would have a rounded design, with a front glass curved at the edges and a digital crown located on the right side. The crown, in addition to providing a more traditional aesthetic to the smartwatch, could be used to navigate the interface, since using the touch screen of this type of device, since it is usually very small, is not always the most comfortable.
The Apple Watch, remember, also includes a DigitalCrown. This allows to do scroll for the different applications. Also access menus and options by pressing or even control the volume of other devices remotely. It wouldn’t be strange to see something similar on the Pixel Watch.
Another interesting detail that reveals the filtered image of the Google Pixel Watch is the possible Fitbit integration, a smartwatch company that Google acquired just over a year ago. Fitbit doesn’t just develop hardware, it also has software solutions focused on health and fitness. These solutions are the ones that the Mountain View company could use on its Pixel Watch. Probably by allowing the user to view their sensor results through the Fitbit Plus platform. It is a kind of subscription service that allows to know in a much more detailed way the different measurements. Fitbit Plus also has additional health-focused features.
The Google Pixel Watch could arrive in May
The Google Pixel Watch, whose launch has been delayed many times, could be a reality this year. Jon Prosser, a popular leakerassured that the company’s smart watch could be announced on Thursday May 26; days after Google I/O, the company’s software conference, ends.
Google’s I/O, in fact, it could be a key event to learn more about this Google Pixel Watch. And more specifically, its software: Wear OS 3.1. The Moutain View firm, in fact, has been betting for some time on improving its operating system for watches. Last year a merger with Tizen, Samsung’s operating system, to offer multiple improvements and features that allow it to compete with Apple’s watchOS. It is likely that in the coming weeks Google will announce the news of Wear OS 3.1 and, therefore, new features that will arrive with its first watch. The I/O, specifically, will be held on May 11 and will end on the 12th.
