Google will officially announce the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch at a hardware launch event early next month. In the days leading up to the event, the company has started sharing teasers with all its upcoming products. A few days ago, Google shared a video on the Made by Google YouTube channel where we got a closer look at the new Pixel collection. However, the video only featured a short clip of the highly anticipated Pixel Watch. Now the company has shared a slightly longer video of its first Wear OS smartwatch, highlighting its premium design.
The new video, titled The design of Google Pixel Watch, shows the smartwatch from all angles. While we’ve seen several images of the Pixel Watch in recent months, this is the first time Google has officially shown its unique twist-lock strap mechanism.
The video also showcases some of the new watch faces that Google will ship with the Pixel Watch. Unfortunately, all the dials in the video have a black background, so it’s hard to tell where the watch’s display ends and the bezel begins. Either way, the watch’s seamless case design makes it look like it has thick bezels.
Another interesting fact revealed in the video is that the Pixel Watch will have Gorilla Glass protection. A close-up shot of the back of the case clearly shows the Gorilla Glass branding, but it doesn’t confirm the variety of Gorilla Glass used.
While the video doesn’t reveal any details about the Pixel Watch’s hardware specs, recent leaks suggest the Pixel Watch could include the Exynos 9110 chipset, a 300mAh battery and LTE support. We’ve also learned that Google will be offering a host of first-party bands and straps for the watch and a wireless charger with a USB-C cable.
