After nearly a year, Google finally introduced the Pixel Watch. Google’s smart watch supports Wear OS 3.5 operating system and it seems that it is going to attract a lot of attention.
Google Pixel Watch has been introduced in two Wi-Fi and LTE versions, but unfortunately, the size of both models is 41 mm and Google has not distinguished between them.
This watch is equipped with a small 1.2-inch screen, the maximum brightness of which is 1000 nits, and it is perfect for outdoor viewing. This display also supports Always On mode.
The display of this watch is protected by a domed Gorilla Glass 5, and the only physical part to control the watch is the button next to it. The chassis of this watch is made of stainless steel, so we expect to see a durable watch.
The Pixel Watch has a heart rate sensor at the bottom as well as an ECG sensor to get more detailed heart details. Google has tapped the Fitbit team’s expertise to create more accurate algorithms for tracking your overall health (the watch can even tell you when it’s best to rest and recover).
This watch is 5ATM certified for water resistance. This means that this watch is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters.
Unlike its phones, this time instead of using a custom chip, Google has used the standard Exynos 9110 processor that was seen in Galaxy smartwatches in 2018. The company has put 2 GB of RAM next to this chip (Watch5 Pro has about 1.5 GB of RAM) and also believes that Google Pixel’s battery is quite adequate for 24-hour use.
As we mentioned above, this watch is introduced in two LTE and Wi-Fi versions. If you want to use your watch without the need for a mobile phone, you should consider getting the LTE version. Otherwise, you can use the Google Pixel Watch Wi-Fi, which includes services such as Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth (5.0), and NFC for Google Play (and other mobile payment services).
Google Pixel Watch Wi-Fi costs around $350 (€380) in Europe, while the LTE version costs around $400 (€430). Not to mention, the Pixel Watch comes with 6 months of Fitbit Premium plus 3 months of YouTube Premium.
You also get a silicone band with the watch, but you can get other colors and styles of bands for your watch if you want. Also, if you don’t like silicone straps, you can use metal and leather straps.
