The Pixel Watch could then constitute a real device connected to your wrist, of which Google would provide both the hardware and software part.

The leaks already available on the Pixel Watch do not do not yet mention the available applications. Google’s connected watch will not, however, ignore the heart sensor and the pedometer function.

The AndroidPolice site mentions the storage capacity of the Pixel Watch. According to the site, the Google connected watch would be equipped with 41 GB of space, which places it at the level of the famous Apple Watch, and far ahead of the Galaxy Watch4 from Samsung.

What is the design of the Pixel Watch?

Several specialized leakers mentioned a current release 2021 for the Pixel Watch.

What price for the Pixel Watch?

It is still early to decide on the price of the Pixel Watch.

This would mean that Google’s connected watch to be marketed around 98-400 euros.

How long will the Pixel Watch last?

One of the big questions about the Pixel Watch is its battery life. The 9to5Google site, a specialist in the firm’s products, indicates that the watch in question would have a battery of 300mAh.
