Pixel Watch: Google's first smartwatch appears in the flesh
A leak provided a good look at Google's upcoming wearable, the Pixel Watch, last week. When it rains, it pours—or so it appears, anyway—and the Pixel Watch now appears to have made its first appearance in the flesh.
As reported by the good folks over at Android Central, a Google Pixel Watch has now been spotted after it appeared to be forgotten at a restaurant in the US. The restaurant's exact details and the identity of the spotter are, of course, redacted by the source for corporate reasons. It's a bit convenient that a device with such media attention would be forgotten casually in this manner, but fans are unlikely to look a gift horse in the mouth.
As for the Pixel Watch itself, well, it looks exactly like prior leaks claimed. A rounded face, curved display, and a crown by the side. There appears to be two buttons on either side of the crown, too. The Pixel Watch looks quite thick as well, which could imply the presence of big batteries. Or maybe not. Google hardware is traditionally difficult to gauge.
The Pixel Watch is expected to ship with Wear OS 3, but the leaked device looks to still be in the internal testing stage. A such, it never loads up an OS but stays stuck at the Google boot logo.
