Google's Answer to the Apple Watch Leaks in a Closer Look Ahead of Official Reveal

New images of Google's upcoming "Pixel Watch" have been leaked online ahead of when the company is expected to provide more information on its first in-house smartwatch during an event on Thursday, October 6.

Pixel Watch Leak BPM Feature 2
Google initially offered a preview of the Pixel Watch during its Google I/O conference over the summer. The Pixel Watch is the first smartwatch directly from Google and an answer to the Apple Watch, which has dominated the smartwatch market. The Pixel Watch is powered by Wear OS and, as expected, includes health and fitness functionality and integration with Android devices and even the iPhone.

The Pixel Watch design has already been leaked beyond what Google shared over the summer, but new images leaked on Twitter alleging to be marketing material offer a closer look at the Pixel Watch UI and some of its features. The images reveal that the Pixel Watch will charge similarly to the Apple Watch with a round charger on the back.

Unlike the Apple Watch, the Pixel Watch offers a circular design and display with a bezel around the edges. An image part of the leak on Twitter reveals just how large the bezels appear, making the actual area of usable display smaller than what it may seem to be. Like the Apple Watch, the images depict the Pixel Watch making phone calls, tracking heart rate and steps, displaying custom watch faces with complications from apps, and more.

The exact pricing of the Pixel Watch remains unknown, but some rumors indicate it may cost $349 for the Wi-Fi-only version and $399 for added cellular functionality. If those prices are accurate, the Pixel Watch would directly compete with the Apple Watch Series 8, which starts at $399.

It's very nice of Google to include some screen with that Bezel.

It's so round and bezel-y. I think round watches look nicer, but that's a lot of cutoff screen real estate on an already small device.

How come a Moto360 watch from 2014 (8 years ago) looks nicer than this?

I actually don't mind the design of this, but anyone who invests any time or money into any product from this company other than an Android phone or Google search is a fool. They will have a completely different wearables department 2 years from now with an all new team and OS and this device will no longer be supported.

It looks like Luigi Colani got up from his grave just to do one final bad "design" with more curves than sense.

Makes me really glad the Apple Watch isn’t circular.
