Google Pixel Watch REVEALED thanks to leaked images


Leaked images appear to show Google’s Pixel Watch, the first own-brand smartwatch, with a circular display and digital crown.

According to a report by Android Centralthe images were taken by someone who found the watch and bracelets abandoned in a restaurant earlier this year.

Google is expected to officially announce the watch at its I/O event next month, and the images appear to match the many rumors that have been circulating over the past few months.

The images show a minimalist design around a circular display – complete with a digital crown, as well as Google bands, similar to those produced for the Apple Watch.

The watch left at the restaurant didn’t include a charger, so it’s unclear exactly how the charging process will work for the device.

The watch shown in the leaked images is believed to have been a test model likely used by Google’s internal Pixel team, according to Android Central.

The watch was left at the restaurant “for a few weeks waiting for people who left it to come back, but that never happened”, before images of it were shared with the media.

Rumors suggest the watch, first hinted at in Google Wear code late last year, will have an Apple Watch-style rotating crown on one side.

There are also two hidden buttons next to the crown, although it’s unclear from the images if they’re actually on the watch.

Also similar to the Apple Watch, there are proprietary bands from Google, designed to fit this watch specifically – and might have similar material to Apple’s sports bands.

In the photos, there are blue and black squishy bands with a semi-circular end where they attach directly to the watch case.

According to Android Central, this could mean that it is not compatible with standard types of watch bands, as is the case with other Android smartwatches.

User tagtech414writing on Reddit, claims to be the person who leaked the photos of the watch to Android Central, and says the bands are “a bit of a pain” to attach.

“A bit of a pain to attach the first time, but I imagine it would be easier once I figured out how to attach them correctly,” the anonymous user wrote, adding “they are extremely secure and don’t have the impression that they will come off easily.

“Most importantly, it’s the most comfortable watch I’ve ever worn. It feels much slimmer than the measurements would lead you to believe.

Charging is likely to mirror that of the Google-owned Apple Watch and Fitbit Versa 3 – via the back of the watch case, which appears to be metallic but covered in glass.

Also on Fitbit, it’s suggested that the Pixel Watch will come with Fitbit integrations, bringing some of the smart tracking technology to the Pixel brand.

According to the source behind the leak, when they tried to start the watch, it didn’t go past the Google logo splash screen, suggesting that no operating system is installed.

It’s been built alongside the Wear OS 3 operating system, built in partnership with Samsung, suggesting it will include tight integration, similar to Apple’s ecosystem and as was the case with recent Pixel phones.

Release dates and locations are unclear and likely won’t be known until the Google I/O event on May 11-12.
