Google is planning to make a Pixel Watch. If the rumors are to be believed, this will be a high-end smartwatch designed to directly compete with the Apple Watch. However, there haven’t been many concrete details released about the watch yet. We’ll round up all the latest Pixel Watch spec rumors and give you our thoughts on what to expect from Google’s first foray into the smartwatch market.
It sounds like Google’s upcoming Pixel Watch will be a flagship set to compete with Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watches
Google is gearing up to release their own Pixel Watch to compete with the likes of Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watches and the Apple Watch. According to new specs leaked by 9to5Google, the Pixel Watch will be a flagship device, with features like a cellular version and a 300 milliamp-hour (mAh) battery. For comparison, the Galaxy Watch has a 270mAh battery, while the latest Apple Watch has an 18-hour battery life. While the physical capacity of the Pixel Watch’s battery isn’t as impressive as some other watches on the market, it seems about right for its size.

The biggest question about the rumored Pixel Watch is what processor it will use. Rumors have been all over the place, with some sources saying that Google will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 4100 and others saying that it will use the more powerful Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus. Another big question is battery life. The Pebble Time was able to last for over a week because it used an e-paper display, which requires much less power than a traditional LCD display. If Google uses a traditional LCD display, that could significantly reduce the Pixel Watch's battery life. Other unknowns include whether or not it will have LTE connectivity and how much water resistance it will have. A lack of LTE connectivity would be a bad sign, as would a lack of water resistance.
Google could announce the Pixel Watch at its I/O conference
The rumors are heating up and it looks like Google is planning to release its own Pixel Watch. If the speculation is true, that would make Google the latest player in the smartwatch game. No details have been confirmed yet, but we're hoping to hear more about it soon. In the meantime, if you're curious to see what the Pixel Watch might look like, you're in luck. Someone has already leaked a bunch of pictures of it. It's still unclear whether or not Google will actually announce it at its I/O conference next month, but we'll just have to wait and see. Fingers crossed!
Google has been lagging behind in the smartwatch game, but it sounds like the company is trying to make a comeback with its upcoming Pixel Watch. The watch is rumored to have features that will compete with Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watches, and Google could announce the watch at its I/O conference this year. We compiled a list of features that we would like to see on the Pixel Watch, and we also asked our readers what they would like to see on the watch.
