There have been rumors floating around for months that Google is working not on one, but on three Pixel-branded smartwatches, slated for release well before the 2018 holiday season. Codenamed ‘Ling’, ‘Triton’ and ‘Sardine’ in typical Google fashion, these are either three different watches, a single model in three different sizes, or possibly three versions of the same (similarly to how Samsung and Apple have Bluetooth-only versions of their smartwatches).

Wear OS

One of the things Google likely wants to showcase with the Pixel watch(es) is not that it can design hardware in-house (that’s already been proven), but that the new and revamped Wear OS is a worthy competitor to watchOS and Tizen.

Improved health and fitness tracking

Health and fitness tracking are some of the most important features in wearables, and with Apple and Samsung planning to expand the functionality of their upcoming smartwatches, Google would be wise to make the Pixel watch capable when it comes to measuring your pulse, or even possibly blood pressure. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ recently proved that a smartphone could be used to measure blood pressure correctly, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the upcoming Samsung Gear S4 (a.k.a Galaxy Watch) also features a similar monitor system.

New Qualcomm processor

For the first time since 2016, Qualcomm is set to release a new chip for Wear OS watches.

In an interview with Wareable last month, Qualcomm’s senior director of wearables Pankaj Kedia said that Qualcomm will announce a new processor this fall. The new chipset will debut alongside a “lead smartwatch” — which could be a Pixel Watch — with other partners adding it by the holidays.

In an interview with CNET, Kedia said the new chipset will improve the Google Assistant experience and make it more visually appealing. Dennis Troper, the product director for Wear OS, told CNET that the Assistant will become more personalized and “proactive about information you may want to see,” and will have improved fitness functions.

Better battery life

Qualcomm’s Kedia told Wareable that the new chip will give Wear OS watches — and by extension, a Pixel Watch — a “significant” upgrade in battery life.

The debut date

While it’s not set in stone, the Pixel Watch will most likely make its debut this fall — the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel 2 were announced in October 2016 and 2017 respectively.
