The long-rumored Google Pixel Watch looks like it might be inching towards a release, probably later this year. Using a description provided by leaker Jon Prosser, @RendersBylan has created an unofficial render approximating what we can expect when it does eventually see the light of day.

There have been rumors of a Google Pixel Watch right from the time the Mountain View-based company launched its first Pixel smartphone back in October 2016. Since then, the rumors have come and gone, but it is looking increasingly likely we will see a Google Pixel Watch launch later this year alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 5a. One that is almost guaranteed is that the Pixel Watch will be powered by the ubiquitous Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 and Google’s own Wear OS.

What the Pixel Watch will look like, however, is open to much more conjecture. Tipster Jon Prosser has been having a tough time of it lately, having to shave his eyebrows off after his prediction of an Apple product even on March 23 failed to come to fruition. He also seems to have been only half right with his claim that the Pixel 5a had been cancelled with Google responding to the claim by saying it will in fact launch. However, other sources suggest it might be cancelled in most markets due to chip shortages except for the US and Japan.

Despite this recent patchy record, Prosser has collaborated with @RendersBylan to create an unofficial render of what Prosser has heard through his sources that the Pixel Watch will look like. What we see is a very stripped back design that features a circular dial and a single button on the side. Although rather pared back, it looks like it will be a simple, but elegant design. The way the Watch band connects directly to the device is also a little reminiscent of the original Moto 360 smartwatch, but slimmer.

Buy the Google Pixel 4a from Amazon.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
