Google is known to have a lineup of smartphones under its Pixel brand but no smart watch yet. And that is about to change as the technology giant is gearing up to hit the smart wearables market with the launch of a Pixel-branded smartwatch.

Ahead of the official announcement from Google, some details about the Pixel Watch have surfaced online. A report from 9to5Google has found that the device, running Wear OS, will come with some exclusive features.

The latest version of the Google app has a “PIXEL_EXPERIENCE_WATCH” tag which hints that the Pixel Watch will come with some features that won’t be available on other Wear OS devices, at least for some time.

For those who are unaware, Google uses the tag “PIXEL_EXPERIENCE” or a variation of it for rolling out exclusive features that are not available for other devices in the market. For instance, there’s “PIXEL_EXPERIENCE_2021” for the Pixel 6 series phones.

Coming back to the features, it is speculated that the Pixel Watch will come with a next-generation Assistant. It is expected to be built into the watch and have support for on-device processing instead of relying on the cloud. This should result in much faster operations and make the device stand out from others.

Recently, the watch faces for the upcoming smartwatch were leaked online and will come running the Wear OS 3 which is a new operating system created with the merger of Google’s Android-based Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen OS.

If the leaks are to be believed, then the upcoming Google Pixel Watch will come powered by the Samsung Exynos processor similar to the Exynos W920 that the South Korean giant is using on its own Galaxy Watch4 series.

The device is expected to get launched sometime in Spring 2022 and could be priced above $300. To know more about the device, we will have to wait for a few more weeks or months for more details to surface online.
