Google Pixel Watch Revealed On YouTube
The year was filled with numerous leaks for upcoming tech goodies. Fortunately, Google goes the extra mile by revealing its upcoming smartwatch on YouTube.
It ditches the endless rumors and speculations about the potential features. The video came out on September 22, 2022, and it teased the design of the Google Pixel Watch.
It was a short and sweet ad that lasted for a minute, but it shared what the smartwatch would look like. What makes its design stand out from the rest?
Google Pixel vs. Apple Watch
The Google Pixel Watch is chic and simple, looking like an elegant timepiece. Its bezel-less face makes it easy to read. Moreover, it only has one button on its right and comes with a minimalist strap.
These designs make the gadget look more practical and unique than the Apple Watch. The latter’s upcoming versions have too many buttons, and the extra features can easily clutter the watch’s face.
You can change the watch styles and track specific metrics like the weather. However, the ad did not reveal more features. Contrary to popular belief, the video is more effective in sparking interest because it reveals few details.
That may entice people to check out the Google Pixel Watch once it hits store shelves. The reveal video only shows a few designs, but its official website discusses more features.
The smart timepiece would integrate with Google apps as expected. These include Google Wallet, Assistant, and Maps. Also, it would help you track fitness goals via Fitbit integration.
It also boasts the new Wear OS experience for the iconic circular design. Moreover, Fast Pair facilitates connecting your earbuds, phone, and watch. Use the Pixel Buds Pro to switch sound between phones, laptops, and watches automatically.
You can control your current music or video with the Google Pixel Watch. Also, you could ring your phone from your watch and vice-versa.
Find My Device will help you locate your misplaced Pixel gadgets on a map. In contrast, Apple’s Find My AirPods only works for its fruit-branded audio accessory.
The Google Pixel Watch also lets you access smart home devices from anywhere. For example, link it to your video doorbell camera to check your home at work.
The Apple Watch will have three new versions: SE 2 ($249), Series 8 ($399), and Ultra ($799). On the other hand, 9to5google said that the Google Pixel Watch would likely cost $349.99 to $399.99.
Google’s new watch will launch on October 6, 2022. Will you wait a few weeks for its release, or purchase the new Apple Watches now? That depends on your preferences.
