Google Pixel occasion 2022 stay weblog: Pixel Watch, Pixel 7, and extra anticipated at right now’s launch get together


There are a couple of key areas that we haven’t touched on but, with battery life and price. For the previous, rumors level to the Pixel Watch utilizing a 300mAh battery, falling nearer in keeping with the 40mm Galaxy Watch 5. This can seemingly get you thru a whole day, however it’s positively not going to be a multi-day wearable. And we’re nonetheless not sure as to what Google plans to do on the subject of charging, however we’re simply maintaining our fingers crossed that it’ll use the Qi commonplace, and permit for reverse wi-fi charging with appropriate Android telephones, together with the Pixel 7 collection.

Fitbit carries the model recognition that Google wants to assist or not it’s profitable within the wearable house. And the Pixel Watch might do effectively to implement a few of Fitbit’s greatest hardware and features. Which means that the Pixel Watch has to execute effectively on the basics, similar to steady coronary heart price and sleep monitoring. However we’re additionally hoping that Google “shoots for the moon” by providing options that even the newly-released Fitbit Sense 2 can’t present. These embody issues similar to accessing Fitbit Premium exercises proper out of your wrist, making it simpler to view and entry Fitbit knowledge, and customizable watch faces that let you put your vital metrics entrance and middle throughout exercises.

GOOD MORNING, it is 6 AM ET, Shruti (AC’s managing editor) checking in once more with ya’ll. I’m drained you guys (see gif), however it’s PIXEL DAY!

Constructing on what Brendan stated…

A part of the enjoyable of proudly owning a smartwatch is to have the ability to view notifications as they arrive, and even reply to them while not having to make use of your telephone. However there’s one other facet of the coin, as wearables have grow to be invaluable for maintaining observe of your basic well being, alongside together with your exercises, health club periods, and extra. And because of the rumored Fitbit integration (that we talked about earlier), one might argue that is set to be extra of a Fitbit powered by Google’s software program.

Morning people, Brendan from the UK checking in right here. Issues are heating up as we edge even nearer to right now’s launch occasion. The Pixel Watch stays our most anticipated gadget right now, however these chunky bezel rumors have had us involved.

So think about the sensation once we woke as much as photos just like the above from WinFuture’s Roland Quandt on Twitter. We’re nonetheless holding out hope that perhaps they don’t seem to be actual, however that bezel is thick. Like, actually thick.

That is extra regarding because the show is seemingly solely going to be round 41mm, and as somebody with a 41mm Galaxy Watch 4 Basic, I can inform you that is a really small dimension for a number of the widget textual content and the like, and that is on a watch with no surrounding bezel consuming into the show. The Pixel’s bezel actually appears to encroach greater than the bezel on the brand new Galaxy Watch 5 too.

Simply as vital because the {hardware}, is the software program, and the Pixel Watch is not any exception with Google’s taste of Put on OS 3. Not solely will there seemingly be deep Fitbit integration, however the Pixel Watch can even deliver one other long-awaited characteristic. The Google House is lastly coming to smartwatches, supplying you with a simple technique to flip your good house lights on or off, with out grabbing your telephone or invoking Assistant. This is among the options many smartwatch homeowners have been eager to see for years, and it’s lastly coming.

Anyway BRB, cuz I will mattress quickly, however one in every of my colleagues may take part quickly, and if not….catch me at 6am ET vibrant and early!

As anticipated, Google didn’t present an excessive amount of details about the Pixel Watch throughout its I/O 2022 Keynote. Nevertheless it wasn’t lengthy after the occasion concluded that we began to study extra in regards to the Pixel Watch. Notably, a rumor recommended that Google could be utilizing a processor from 2018, within the Exynos 9110, which was first launched alongside the Galaxy Watch. Nevertheless, subsequent rumors have recommended that Google will pair the 9110 with an unnamed co-processor, together with loads of RAM and probably the most storage on an Android smartwatch.

We must see what the ultimate outcome will actually be, however for now, I feel lots of people really feel just like the beneath gif. 

Shortly earlier than Google I/O 2022 kicked off, Android Central was the first to report on and supply real-world photos of Google’s first smartwatch. This confirmed a couple of issues in regards to the watch itself, such because the rotating crown, and two hidden buttons to offer numerous strategies for interacting with the wearable. The supplied photos additionally gave us a sign of simply how the Pixel Watch would stack up from a dimension perspective in comparison with the Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch.

Much more excitedly, Google is lastly, and we imply FINALLY set to launch its first smartwatch. This has been rumored for years, and appears like it is going to be the right complement to your shiny, new Pixel 7 (or any Android telephone). Since exhibiting it off at I/O, Google has supplied a couple of teasers right here and there, full with a “Design of Google Pixel Watch” trailer video, giving us an concept as to how the design got here to be. 

People, it is Shruti typing, AC’s managing editor. I will be on till tomorrow when the occasion goes stay and actually I already really feel like I want a drink…perhaps that is how I am going to discover one other gadget that was “by accident” left at a bar. Lmao. JK. Anyway, Andrew Myrick helped me write a bunch of stuff, so I wish to kick issues off. 

It’s been a protracted 5 months for the reason that Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Professional, Pixel Watch, and even the Pixel Pill had been first teased at I/O 2022. Since then, we’ve seen an iPhone 4-like debacle with a Pixel Watch left in a bar together with various totally different individuals getting some hands-on time with Pixel 7 and seven Professional prototypes. For no matter motive, it appears that evidently Google simply can’t work out the way to flip off that leaky faucet yearly.
