Google Working On 3 Pixel Smartwatches Expected To Launch This Fall

It may also be these three devices are all going to be titled the Google Pixel Watch but will come in subtle variations with different features or designs for each.

Google is reportedly planning to introduce their own smartwatch that will bear Pixel branding at their Fall hardware event. But seems like it may be about to change. The leak comes from trusted Evan Blass a.k.a. Evleaks.

At the same time, German website Winfuture, citing its own sources says that the market will be released three models of smart hours Google with the code name "Ling", "Triton" and "Sardine". While what will be shown off is up for debate, it's expected that next generation Pixel devices will be included.

Mature director of wearables in Qualcomm, Pankaj Kedia, formerly said that the chipset maker is hard at work using a next-gen chip for forthcoming smartwatches.

Search giant Google recently made various important announcements at its annual developer conference I/O 2018. However, what else does Google have in store on the hardware front that will be unveiled alongside the new smartphones? He further adds that all the three smartwatches will be powered by the next generation Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor. Of course, it would face steep competition with the Apple Watch (one of the most popular watches in the world), but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. However, some of the specifications include Bluetooth with apt-X, GPS, and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support. The fall season means around October, November, and December which aligns perfectly with the timeline for Google's hardware event this year. One of the reasons why is that all WearOS devices have been running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset since early 2016 - limiting the ability of vendors to actually improve and iterate.

Folks who are looking for a non-Apple smartwatch are spoiled for choice with several brands to choose from, but I don't believe there's really been a quintessential Wear OS-based device that brings the best of the platform along with a universal design.
