It’s Pixel Watch leak season now, as barely a day goes by without new news about Google’s upcoming smartwatch break, and today we have not one, but two leaks.
First off, it looks like there could be up to three different Pixel Watch models, as model numbers GWT9R, GBZ4S, and GQF4C have all been certified by the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group).
These are all Google devices and are believed to be smartwatches as they are described as wearables, so it is likely that they are all versions of the Pixel Watch. There’s no additional info here, so it’s not clear how they differ, maybe their sizes or features vary, or maybe they’re just the same watch for different regions.
But this isn’t the only evidence that we’ll be seeing multiple Google Pixel Watch models, as is yet another new leak, this time coming from a source speaking to the leaker. Yogesh BrarIt claims that the wearable will come in two different sizes, so it could represent two of the model numbers.
I got information about Pixel Watch from a relatively new source 1) Google Samsung Association here too. 2) Same sensors as Galaxy Watch (ECG and more) 3) New WearOS 3.1 version 4) 2 sizes, at least 4 color watch bands. 5) Limited release, priced between $300-400April 27, 2022
The source also claims that Google has partnered with Samsung for the Pixel Watch and that it has the same sensors as the Galaxy Watch 4 (including an ECG), but that it will ship with a new version of Wear OS, dubbed Wear OS 3.1. .
Apparently, there will also be at least four watch strap colors, and the wearable will cost between $300 and $400 (approximately £240 – £320 / AU$420 – AU$560). We’ve heard the highest of those prices before, but it’s nice to know it might not cost that much.
Interestingly, the Pixel Watch will apparently only get a “limited release”, however as a Google product it will almost certainly land in the US, with Brar stating in a reply to his initial tweet that it should also make it to the US. United Kingdom. We’d take all of this with a grain of salt, though, especially since Brar describes the source for it as “relatively new.”
Analysis: what about the third model?
So assuming all of this is correct, it’s possible that two of those certifications refer to different sizes of watches, but what about the third one? Well, one possibility is the Pixel Watch Fit, which is a possibly sports-focused spin-off that was previously leaked.
However, it is not entirely clear if this portable device actually exists. Some sources suggest that could be the launch name for the standard Pixel Watch, while Brar, in a reply to his tweet, states that “nothing matching that description is being done” and that “they haven’t seen any other watches except this one.” in two different sizes.”
So exactly which Pixel Watch models there will be and how they will differ (apart from perhaps size) is one of the big questions that remain about this wearable. We should find out soon, possibly even at Google IO 2022 on May 11.
