Google Pixel Watch has passed the Bluetooth SIG certification website. It is listed with model numbers GWT9R, GBZ4S, and GQF4C. The search giant’s first smartwatch has also been spotted in alleged leaked live images after it was found at a restaurant in the US.
The Google Pixel watch is expected to be teased at the brand’s upcoming annual I/O Developer conference that starts on May 11th. Rumours suggest that the smartphone could debut in October this year.
Google Pixel watch: what we know so far
The Bluetooth SIG certification of the Google Pixel Watch reveals that it will be available in three variants. Apart from this, the listing doesn’t reveal any additional information. The upcoming smartwatch was also registered on the US trademark website as ‘Pixel Watch’.
Publication Android Central shared the alleged live images of the Pixel Watch giving us a first look at the device. The source claims it to be ‘a testing model for the Internal Pixel team’. The smartwatch features a rounded display with slim bezels and a minimalist design with silver accents. There is a rotating crown and two hidden buttons. The design in the live image also corroborates with past leaks and renders. The back of the wearable device has a heart rate and other necessary sensors.
The Google Pixel Watch is seen in only Black colours but we can expect more at launch. The images also reveal an Apple Watch-like sports band that attaches directly to the watch case. It is also likely that the upcoming smartwatch will be topped up from the back of the watch case. Apart from the design of the Google Pixel Watch, the report adds that the device only displayed the company’s logo when the source tried to power it up.
The Google Pixel Watch will reportedly be powered by Samsung’s Exynos processor and run on WearOS 3.1.
