Pixel Watch is Google's first smartwatch, but it doesn't arrive in Italy


The Pixel Watch had already been announced by Google in May, but with the presentation on October 6 along with the Pixel 7 it made its debut in society. If you exclude Fitbit products, Pixel Watch is Google’s first ever smartwatch.

The “dome” shape

The shape of Pixel Watch is circular and is characterized by the domed glass, a customized Gorilla Glass 5 3D, under which a 320 ppi AMOLED screen is manifested that supports the DCI-P3 color space, has a declared brightness of 1000 nits and can rely on the Always-on display (AOD).

The size is 41mm, the weight is 32g, the water resistance of 5ATM, and the 294mAh battery promises to cover a day of use on a single charge, it is not known whether with or without AOD. So, in terms of autonomy, we are more on the Apple Watch side than on the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.

However, Google has added a magnetic base to the Pixel Watch that recharges the watch to 50% in 30 minutes, 80% in 55 minutes and gets 100% in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Health is “managed” by Fitbit

The chip that drives the Pixel Watch is Samsung’s Exynos 9110 that pairs with a Cortex M33 processor designed to optimize battery life. It is a solution similar to that of Samsung, which for its wearables uses a W920 processor that relies on a Cortex-M55 for the management of the AOD, and of Qualcomm, which also uses a Cortex M-55 for its W5 + SoC for background tasks.

RAM is 2GB and storage is 32GB on eMMC. The operating system is Wear OS 3.5. The Pixel Watch is completed by Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, integrated GPS and all the sensor parts represented by the altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, SpO2 sensor, heart rate sensor (and ECG) and a sensor defined by Google “multipurpose”, probably to activate in the future also the gestures borrowed from the Pixel 4 Soli technology. However, the warning for falls will only arrive in 2023.

Obviously there is the microphone and the speaker because Pixel Watch can also manage calls, and above all it can interact with the Google Assistant.

Fitbit is still an important part of the Pixel Watch, not only because 6 months of the premium plan comes with the watch, but because all health-related functions will be tied to Fitbit’s algorithms, then sleep monitoring, ECG, daily readiness score, meditation; but it cannot measure body temperature and stress levels.

Google has chosen for the moment not to bring Pixel Watch to Italy. In Europe it will be available only in Ireland, Germany and France starting from 13 October at a price of 379 euros for the Wi-Fi version and 429 euros for the LTE version.
