Rumors surrounding Google’s forthcoming Pixel smartwatch have been circulating for more than a year, and while we know some details about the product, a specific release date hasn’t even been speculated.
Today, that changed. Leaker Jon Prosser posted on Twitter that Google is planning on launching the Pixel Watch on May 26, a date that aligns with the company’s I/O developer conference.
Pixel Watch ?
I’m hearing that Google is planning on launching it on Thursday, May 26th — over year since we leaked it.
This is the first we’ve seen a set date on the device behind the scenes.

Prosser had recently said that Google may uncover the watch close by the Pixel 6 in October yet cautioned that the date was a moving objective. He later revised the course of events, guaranteeing the watch had been postponed to Q1 2022. Presently the gadget looks prone to show up in Q2.
While Google hasn’t affirmed the delivery date-no less the presence of a Pixel Watch-presently, this most recent hole ought to be empowering Android clients hanging tight for an appropriate Apple Watch rival on the grounds that, as Prosser calls attention to, this is the “principal we’ve seen a set date on the gadget in the background.” Moreover, Google’s I/O 2022 meeting, which occurred from May 18 to 20 last year, would be an intelligent launchpad thinking of it as’ the place where Google reported Wear OS 3, the most significant update to its watch OS in years.
We’ve been finding out about a Google-made smartwatch for quite a while now, and keeping in mind that Google has crushed those bits of gossip in years past, this present time may at last be the opportunity. A December report asserted the codename for the gadget is “Rohan” and that it’ll have a round face (like fundamentally every other Android smartwatch). It is said to offer fundamental wellness following, similar to step counts and heart rating observing, alongside different highlights taken from Google-possessed Fitbit.
There had been a lot of theory concerning how Google would approach smartwatches in the wake of settling its procurement of Fitbit last year. It was indistinct whether the organization would deliver a Pixel-marked gadget or go above and beyond and put its smartwatch division under the Fitbit brand. The sky is the limit, however holes and bits of gossip propose the wearable will be a sidekick gadget to Google’s cell phones.
On the off chance that previous breaks are precise, we’ve as of now seen the gadget. Before the end of last year, Prosser posted on his YouTube channel what he asserts are true limited time photographs. They show a watch like the one included in renders from April-it has a round plan and an essentially without bezel watch face that cascades around the edges.
Concerning specs, the reputed wearable could be controlled by a Samsung Exynos chip and backing Google Assistant, in light of a report from 9to5Google that professes to have viewed as a “PIXEL_EXPERIENCE_WATCH” include tag inside a Google application. It may have been accepted that Google would go to Qualcomm, however recollect, Google banded together with Samsung to assist it with fixing its lamentably coming up short smartwatch OS. It would make sense if this organization additionally elaborate utilizing the other’s equipment.
We don’t have the foggiest idea how much the watch will cost, however a new Business Insider report, certified by The Verge, claims it will be more costly than a Fitbit and valued to contend with the Apple Watch. Also like the Apple Watch, the Pixel Watch (assuming it’s named that) should be charged day by day. Regardless, the vast majority of what we think we “know” about the Pixel Watch depends on hypothesis and gossip, so this Android client is holding his fervor under control.
