Google, like always, is expected to launch their next-gen Pixel smartphones in the month of October. Following the previous naming scheme, we’ll see Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL finally making their way to the market. And along with them, the search-giant was speculated to unveil their first ever Pixel smartwatch.
As opposed to what was previously speculated, Google has made it official that it won’t release the Google Pixel watch this year but instead will see next year for the potential launch. Google rolled out the latest smart wearOS at Google I/O 2018 that was held in May and has undergone several major upgrades.
The brand recently released the third major upgrade for the wearOS which has tweaked the UI for easier notification and access to apps using a newly revamped UI and more. It was speculated that the new upgrade will be released with Google Pixel watch in October alongside Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, however, Google has totally squashed the onset of Google Pixel watch and instead stated that the upgrade will be rolled out next month.
Further, Google isn’t interested in developing and manufacturing its own line of smartwatches and instead, the search engine giant has tied up with bigwigs like Casio and Fossil towards redefining the case of smartwatch usage.
Also, some watches are attuned towards fitness while some watches are attuned towards design and thus, Google hasn’t developed a ‘one-size-fits-all’ smartwatch yet but it could roll out a Pixel smartwatch later next year that could cater to most if not all users thanks to its integration with Google Assistant and its machine learning capabilities that could provide a more personalized approach towards its usage.
The new upgrade for wearOS brings heavy integration to Google Assistant and AI, Google Fit, better notifications and more. If you are waiting for Pixel watch, you’ll probably have to wait longer to hear anything about it from Google next year unless it is leaked beforehand similar to the numerous leaks already made on Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL which is yet to be announced.
