Google introduced the Pixel Watch smartwatch – round, compact, starting at $350

Google today hosted its Made by Google ’22 Showcase, showcasing its new flagship smartphones, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, and its first smartwatch, the Pixel Watch. The novelty has a unique design and wide functionality.

Pixel Watch is crafted in a fairly compact 41mm stainless steel case and Gorilla Glass 5. The novelty is equipped with a round AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 320 ppi and brightness up to 1000 cd / m2. In particular, Google does not specify screen sizes. It is noted that it supports Always-On feature.

The Pixel Watch is based on the Exynos 9110 single-chip platform complemented by a Cortex M33-based coprocessor responsible for efficient power consumption in standby mode. As planned, this should extend the battery life, but at the same time ensure smooth operation and high performance when required. The watch also has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. There is also an NFC module inside.

A 294 mAh battery is responsible for the battery life, which allows 24 hours of operation without recharging. Fast charging is also supported: 50% in just 30 minutes and 100% in 80 minutes. Wireless charging with a magnetic holder – the matching cable with charging function and a USB Type-C connector is included in the scope of delivery.

The manufacturer notes the wide capabilities of the watch for monitoring body parameters and physical activity of the user with a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen levels and others. There are many functions for training, and users get detailed statistics on all measurements that the watch will take. That’s because Google previously bought Fitbit, whose products are known for their fitness and health tracking capabilities. Incidentally, it also supports fall detection and automatic emergency calls.

The Pixel Watch uses Google Wear OS 3.5 as the software platform. This platform is therefore a kind of reference watch that other manufacturers can match. Many different watch faces are worth mentioning, as well as many useful functions and applications such as Maps, Wallet and the voice assistant Google Assistant.

The watch is sold in three colors: black, silver and gold. Google has promised a huge range of straps that will allow you to give the watch a more classic look or, conversely, a more youthful look.

Smartwatch Google Pixel Watch is available in two versions. The Wi-Fi-only model costs $349.99, while the cellular version costs $399.99. Pre-orders will be accepted starting today. Deliveries will begin on October 13th. Along with the watch, the user gets three months of YouTube Premium subscription and six months of Fitbit Premium.
