Google: Official video with the design of the Pixel Watch, its first smartwatch – Google

The launch of Google’s first smartwatch is just days away, and while we’ve already seen it thanks to renders shared by the company in the past, we’re now getting a chance to see it up close in a new official video.

The Pixel Watch is shown in all its glory in Google’s latest promotional effort showcasing its design. Its circular screen “ties” all the way to the back, where we see the Gorilla Glass branding that makes the well-known durable glass, although it is not clear whether the back is also coated with glass or not.

The right side of the Pixel Watch features a unique button and a crown. We previously thought there would be two buttons on the side, but now it’s clear that’s not the case. The video also confirms that the crown is rotatable, so it will likely serve as a physical navigation button, just like the Apple Watch crown works.

Elsewhere, we get a better look at the system by which the strap locks onto the dial with a rotary action, which likely means we won’t be able to easily fit straps we already own. A number of static and animated watch faces, including one with the Fitbit logo, are also featured in the video. Google has already confirmed on the official Pixel Watch page that some features of its smartwatch will require a Fitbit account as well as the Fitbit app, which is causing some confusion since Fitbit announced a few days ago that it was ending its accounts. with users of its devices having to use a Google account.

Unfortunately, Google isn’t revealing anything additional about the materials used in the construction of the Pixel Watch or whether it has an official durability rating. We will learn more on October 6 when Google will officially present its first smartwatch together with the new smartphone series, the Pixel 7.
