Almost a year after the first rumours started popping up about it, the Google Pixel Watch is finally here. The Google Pixel Watch runs Wear OS 3.5, which is rarely seen without Samsung's One UI watch skin seen with the Galaxy Watch 5 series.
The Pixel Watch comes in two variants, Wi-Fi and LTE, but is only 41mm in size. After all, the box contains a large and small band (we'll talk about bands because there are multiple options you can use to customize the look).
The watch features a small 1.2-inch display that achieves 1,000 nits of brightness for outdoor visibility and features an always-on mode. The Gorilla Glass 5 that covers the watch is dome-shaped, and the only physical controls are buttons on the side. The chassis is made from stainless steel, which makes it extremely durable.
At the bottom of the Pixel Watch are a heart rate sensor and an EKG sensor for more detailed heart rate measurements. Google has leveraged the Fitbit team's expertise to develop more accurate algorithms for tracking overall health. This clock will tell you the best time to rest and recuperate.
The watch is also water resistant up to 5ATM (often listed as "50m"), so you can even take it swimming. Instead of a custom chip like the phone, Google opted for the standard Exynos 9110. This was used in Galaxy watches in 2018. Paired with a decent 2GB of RAM (the new Samsung Watch5 Pro has 1.5GB), Google believes the battery will last 24 hours. If you wish to pair your Google Pixel Watch with an iPhone, you are out of luck as the Pixel Watch similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Watch is only compatible with Android smartphones.
Let's wrap things up with connectivity features. As mentioned, there's an LTE version if you want to use the watch without a phone. Otherwise, you get regular Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth (5.0) connectivity, plus NFC for Google Pay (or other mobile payment services). Anyway, the box contains an "active" silicone strap, but you can choose different colours and other types of straps to customize the look of your watch. Not just woven straps, but metal and leather straps are also available.
Google is yet to announce the price of the Pixel Watch. Given the prices in the US of $349, the Google Pixel Watch is expected to come in India at a price of Rs 28500 (approx).
