Google has started selling the Pixel Watch in multiple markets. Equipped with the chipset from the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch3, the Pixel Watch also has a stylish design, is available for free with Pixel 7 Pro pre-orders and marks greater Fitbit integration within Wear OS.

Google has launched the Pixel Watch, its long-awaited smartwatch and one of the first opportunities to try stock Wear OS 3.5. Available to pre-order today, the Pixel Watch can also be obtained as a pre-order bonus with the Pixel 7 Pro if you purchase the latter before October 17. Alternatively, Google will offer £179 off a Pixel Watch if you pick up the Pixel 7 during the same period.

As for the Pixel Watch, Google offers the device in four colour combinations, all with 41 mm stainless steel cases. According to the company, the Pixel Watch is also 12.3 mm thick and weighs 36 g without a band attached. Sadly, Google has only managed to fit a 294 mAh battery within that 36 g package. As a result, the Pixel Watch is slated for just 24 hours of usage, far below the manufacturer estimates for the smaller Galaxy Watch5 and Watch Series 8.

As expected, the Pixel Watch relies on the outdated Exynos 9110, a chipset that we first reviewed a few years ago in the Galaxy Watch Active2. Additionally, Google includes an ARM Cortex-M33 co-processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The Pixel Watch starts at £339 in the UK with Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity and rises to £379 for the LTE variant.

It is worth noting that all but the Champagne Gold/Hazel Active Band combination can be ordered in both connectivity variants. For some reason, Google restricts the Champagne Gold edition to the more expensive LTE edition. Separately, the Pixel watch comes with 6 months of Fitbit Premium, which begins upon device activation. Similarly, Google bundles 3 months of YouTube Music Premium.
