Google’s Pixel Watch is set to go head to head against the Apple Watch and the Samsung Galaxy Watch.
Google has been on other smartwatch companies’ smartwatches for a long time now, but with this new Pixel Watch, it’s gaining its own business. Announced with the release of Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, I got to see the new watch firsthand at their event in Brooklyn, New York.
Review of the Google Pixel Watch
This adds to the list of various smartwatches on the market. The Pixel Watch starts at $349 for GPS and $399 for cellular, comfortably fitting in the middle of the spectrum.
Pixel Watch: Meet Google’s First Smartwatch
The best smartwatch is round and a little thick because I like that style rather than Apple’s square design. The Gorilla Glass is dome-shaped to show off the watch at the best angle for people.
Cartier has a 41.0-millimeter watch with a stainless steel chassis and it comes in three colors – Champagne Gold, Matte Black, or Polished Silver. I prefer the look of the Polished Silver because of how shiny it is.

The watch has a circular display that is also AMOLED and has 320 pixels per inch. The design looks clean with no pixelated edges.

User actions are about spinning, with a tiny button on the other side that shoots up and down the user interface.
What I think is different about the Google Pixel Watch
New wrist strap options are available at the store, including metal, silicone, and leather. And they all have their own appeal.

Google is combining a four-year-old processor with several custom components to accomplish goals like battery life and performance for the pixel watch. While we can’t comment on future performance, initial user interface testing of these features appears to run fluidly and smoothly.
Google Pixel 7 Watch sensor module
The sensor module is located on the bottom of the watch and its functions include heart rate and temperature. The glass shape is smooth and comfortable when it’s against your skin for a short period of time.
Google Pixel 7 Watch color options
Google may have trouble convincing people to upgrade from affordable fitness trackers to the Pixel Watch, which will have a hefty price tag. However, Google should be able to benefit from the watch’s customization and built-in hardware for fitness tracking.
The Pixel Watch is now available for preorder and will be out by October 13. We’ll be doing a review of the watch soon, so stay tuned.
