Pixel Watch, the first smartwatch from Google, is expected to hit the market in 2019. The refined Wear OS, the new SoC Qualcomma and gestures control are to give it an edge over the competition.
What is missing in Google's offer when we talk about hardware? We already have a Pixelbook – 2-in-1 devices, Pixel smartphones and intelligent speakers. The tablet has gone through history, so it's time for a smartwatch. And the first information about him has already reached the network.
What can be a smartwatch from Google?
For Pixel Watch, because it is supposed to be called this device, the network was already loud several times. The reason he has not hit the market so far is … Google's sentence about Wear OS (formerly Android Wear). It was not supposed to be sufficiently polished, so that the giant decided to release Pixel branded equipment. Apparently it is now, or it will be at the time of the premiere, because the topic has come back like a boomerang. Until then, we know absolutely nothing about the specifications of the device. We know, however, that some time ago Google paid 40 million dollars for the technology in which Fossil came in buying a startup. If it is not too simple – that's all we know about it – it is connected to the production of smartwatches.In the picture above, you can see the work of said startup – the Misfit Vapor model , which looks really great . Minimalist design hits my taste much more than Samsung models with a movable ring or Apple Watch with lace on the side. I would not be offended if Pixel Watch was similar.
Brand new service
Despite the rudimentary information, the message spread wide. The technology is to change the way we use smartwatches. Currently, the control of smart watches is currently taking place on two roads: a touch screen or an additional mechanical element. The first one causes problems when we have wet fingers. The latter for it – like a mechanical element – can break down. What is the third solution? You're right – gestures. Misfit Vapor has a touch ring surrounding the screen , through which we control the interface. Add to this active frames that we already know from some HTC smartphones and we get a solution that is not afraid of wet fingers and at the same time resistant to mechanical damage. So what is the future of Google's smartwatch? Refining Wear OS, a new Qualcomm chipset and the service I described above. Such equipment could easily compete with Samsung Gear or Apple Watch. When the premiere? The source claims that still in 2019, and I put on the premiere with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Source
