After running around the rumor mill for months, the Google Pixel Watch has been finally revealed, and it feels like everything we wanted it to be.
The Google Pixel Watch offers that classic circular watch design like what real watches have. That screen is at 1.2-inches and has always-on mode so you can look at the time and other important information at a glance.
It also boasts 1,000nits of peak brightness so you can still see what’s in it even when it’s sunny outside. For a more seamless look, the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that’s protecting the watch has a dome shape as it melts to the main chassis.
There’s a button on the left side that looks like a crown for a more classic watch appeal. Next to it is a physical button.
The body is made of stainless steel material, which is both durable and matches the overall elegant look of the watch. A 5ATM water resistance ensures that it is safe from being submerged in water.
To power this watch, Google went with Samsung’s Exynos 9110 custom chipset, mated to a 2GB of RAM. But like most feature-rich smartwatches, this thing only has all-day battery life.
Also on this fancy smartwatch is a heart-rate sensor and an ECG for more detailed heart monitoring.
For connectivity, the Watch can be had either WiFi-only or with LTE. Both models will have Bluetooth 5.0 to pair with your phone and NFC for mobile payments. Of course, it runs on Google’s own WearOS.
The Google Pixel Watch WiFi-only retails for USD349 (around Php20,500) while the LTE variant is at USD399 (around Php23,500) and comes with a free 6-month Fitbit Premium subscription and 3 months for YouTube Premium. You can have it for free when you pre-order the also-new Pixel 7 Pro.
Each unit will come with an Active silicone band in the box that’s available in different colors to match your style. Also available are leather and metal bands.
