At its event on October 6, Google is preparing to unveil the Pixel 7 series, the Pixel Watch, a new Nest WiFi router, and perhaps a few other new products. With previous teasers showcasing the design in all its grandeur, the firm has already made a significant amount of information about the Pixel Watch and Pixel 7 public. Additionally, it was stated that pre-orders for the Pixel 7 Pro would start on October 6. The device would then allegedly go on sale starting two weeks later, on October 18. The Pixel Watch’s availability has not received much attention, but it appears that it may also be on sale at the same time as the new Pixel phones.
The Pixel Watch retail packaging is visible in a leaked image from a Target DC, according to r/PixelWatch. The wearable’s integration with Fitbit is alluded to by the compact packaging’s addition of the “with Fitbit” label. The business is right to stress the fact that Google’s upcoming wearable will be the first Wear OS smartwatch to sync with the Fitbit app.
The front-facing image of the Pixel Watch, which Google has been teasing for months, is all that is visible in the leaked image of the box. However, the retail box that has surfaced in the wild suggests that Google’s smartwatch will go on sale soon after the event on October 6.
After the presentation, Google might begin taking pre-orders for the Pixel Watch before releasing it alongside the new Pixel phones. If the reports are accurate, the Wi-Fi version of the smartwatch might cost as little as $350. It appears that the cellular version will cost more over $400.
The Google Pixel Watch will be a fascinating addition to the company’s hardware selection and might help the Wear OS 3 ecosystem gain more traction. Additionally, it would put a strain on Samsung’s monopoly over the top Android smartwatches.
