More Google Pixel Watch details surface including pricing information
The upcoming Google Pixel Watch has leaked in almost all of its entirety over the past week after a unit was conveniently forgotten at a restaurant in the Chicago area. Some details of the first-gen wearable remain obscured, though, but word on the grapevine now seeks to clarify some of those.
As revealed by Yogesh Brar, the Pixel Watch will arrive in two sizes. In addition to the leaked 40 mm model, fans can expect a larger one. Four band colorway options are said to be available as well, with black already being confirmed. Supposedly, Google will partner closely with Samsung on the Pixel Watch—no surprise considering Tensor's Exynos roots—with the first-gen watch to offer the same sensors as the Galaxy Watch.
According to @Chunvn8888, the Pixel Watch will be available in color options of glossy gold, glossy silver, and matte black. Software-wise, it's expected to run Wear OS 3.1 but current software appears to be unpolished. That will likely change by the time it launches, however.
As for pricing, all available information leans towards the Pixel Watch being priced somewhere between US$300 and US$400. The Apple Watch Series 7 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic LTE both cost US$399 at the top-end, so it'd make sense for Google to try and undercut them.
So me and @VNchocoTaco were able to chat with some sources who directly had access to the Google Pixel Watch/Watch Fit manufacture line and here are what we have learned so far:— No name (@chunvn8888) April 27, 2022
