The Google Pixel Watch has now been officially launched. There have long been rumors that the company could be working on a smartwatch. It has now been presented to the public at the Google I/O 2022 developer conference. Below you will find all the important details about the smart watch.
The Google Pixel Watch is not yet commercially available, but it was officially presented at the Google I/O. This is a very simple smart wristwatch. The wearable has a round design and a 40 mm display that is rounded on the side. The watch sometimes appears almost frameless. It is also made of stainless steel and has an integrated “Digital Crown”, a rotating button on the side. The bracelets are interchangeable and proprietary. This means that only wristbands that are also intended for Google’s watch can be used. The tech company also provided a short introductory video of the watch:
Fitbit integration and Google apps for the Pixel Watch
Google’s hardware boss and senior vice president Rick Osterloh was the first to slip on the Pixel Watch at the big developer conference and explained the benefits and functions the wearable will offer. The design does not reveal it right away, but the watch should primarily be suitable for fitness. The in-house smartwatch should be supplied with Fitbit functions. These include activity and sleep applications. Users can link their Fitbit account.

The Google Pixel Watch will come with the Wear OS operating system. The company announced at the launch that it would be improved and revised before the release. In addition, the apps Google Maps, Google Assistant, Google Wallet and Google Home will be usable. The wearable is compatible with all devices from Android 8, use with iPhones is (for the time being) excluded. Rather, the company wants to build and expand its pixel ecosystem more.
