Google is expected to release the Pixel Watch running Wear OS 3.1 on May 26 this year, a new report has claimed. Smart wearable devices have been the subject of speculation and uncertainty for quite some time.
Tipster Evan Blass said in a post on Twitter that the smartwatch launch “won’t be long”. In the same post, he provides a screenshot of a device named “Pixel Rohan”. The codename Rohan has long been associated with the first Google smartwatch.
However, it does not necessarily mean that the device will carry the Rohan moniker when it is launched. The search engine giant may adopt a more catchy marketing name for the upcoming Pixel Watch.
The upcoming Google Pixel Watch is expected to get the Skin Interface feature, a combination of sensors that can recognize gestures made outside the body of the watch. To recall, Google filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization in 2020. The patent was called ‘Skin Interface for Wearables: Sensor Fusion to Improve Signal Quality’.
The watch will have basic fitness tracking features including step counting and heart rate monitor. Google is also reportedly working on rolling out Fitbit integration into Wear OS with the new Watch when it launches.
Earlier renders suggest that the smartwatch may come in a slim form factor and a curved display around a metal frame. A large Crown button was shown on the right side of the dial, but the report did not specify what the switch would be used for.
On the other hand, if we talk about the features, then some trackers have been revealed from the renders, including maps integration, heart rate monitoring and step counter. The feature list includes SPO2 (oxygenation) tracking, sleep apnea detection, sleep analysis, heartbeat alerts, recovery time monitoring, stress tracking, pairing medical devices and gym equipment, rape detection and calorie tracking.
In addition, Google has started working on its next-generation flagship smartphones, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. According to reports, Google’s upcoming flagship smartphone can be launched with the second generation Google Tensor chipset and Samsung’s new Exynos modem. The renders suggest that the upcoming Pixel 7 series will be offered with a few changes compared to its previous version, the Pixel 6 Pro.
