Google plans to turn up the heat on Apple's Watch by launching a Pixel smartwatch later this year, according to Evan Blass, a reliable industry tipster. And not the first to be associated with the name Pixel, neither.
A good, affordable Pixel watch could help bring Google's operating system back into the consumer fitness sphere and maybe, just maybe, challenge the dominance of the Apple Watch. But, it's still not clear on what basis these smartwatches will differ from each other. The search giant is rumoured to launch at least three smartwatches this year with WearOS on board.
Reliable leaker Evan Blass is reporting that Google is planning to launch a Pixel-branded smartwatch this fall at its hardware event. Have a great summer! The Adreno 304 GPU will be the graphics processing unit and an all new power management unit PMW3100 will also be fitted on the new Pixel branded wearables.
That's not all: German tech blog Winfuture.de reports that Google actually has three wearables, codenamed "Ling", 'Triton, ' and 'Sardine, ' in the pipeline.More news: Tiger Woods To Play At Carnoustie
There is also the possibility that the differences between the Pixel Watch models will centre on whether or not they are LTE-enabled.
The unannounced smartwatch is expected to support Bluetooth with ap-X, integrated GPS, VoLTE support, step tracker and heart rate monitor.
Last year LG and Google released what was meant to be a reference smartwatch which was not well received. The manufacturing will remain on the 28nm process. This means that the actual processor will only be used when it is active and everything else will be offloaded on Blackghost. The chip will reportedly run continuously and allow watches to respond to voice commands. But WinFuture corroborated the information and added more to it.
