It’s not a secret fact that Wear OS-powered smartwatches for the majority of the time, have disappointed us. However, as technology improved with wearable chipsets that were efficient, such as Snapdragon Wear 4100/+ and Exynos W920, Snapdragon Wear 4100+ as well as the Exynos W920 Wear OS smartwatches got better.
There was speculation that Google may unveil its Pixel Watch, but we weren’t told anything until the company recently announced the name code (Rohan) to the device. Executives from the company have told employees that “they are planning to release a watch this year.”
Pixel Wear OS Rumors: Now, a Excellent Wear OS Experience?
There are many reasons to be thrilled regarding this Pixel Watch. When Google released Wear OS 3.0 this year, it partnered with Samsung to create its first Wear OS-powered Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy Watch4.
One of the drawbacks (subjective subject) that comes with the Watch4 is it is running Tizen UI, which is not as good as that of the Wear OS 3.0 images of the UI that Google provided us within the launch. The Watch4 is, for the most part, is also a sign that it was designed with Samsung customers in mind since you’re missing out on certain features if you don’t own a Samsung smartphone.
But however, the Pixel Watch should be different and won’t differ according to the Android phone you have. The renders that were released some time ago showed almost none of the bezels however don’t get too hopeful about the device having the same style as the renderings.
GSMArena informs that Pixel Watch won’t be a Fitbit device, even though Fitbit has said that it will eventually introduce Wear OS smartwatches. However, we’d like to witness some competition from well-known brands, as it would aid in capturing market share. It could also require other manufacturers to produce Wear OS products.
According to a Google person, the device will feature exclusive bands that will include heart rate, step-counting capabilities. You probably didn’t think of this.
There’s been no announcement regarding pricing, however, given that the majority of premium Fitbit smartwatches are in the sub $350 price bracket We’re expecting Google to set the price of its Pixel Watch at around the same price.
