Google Pixel Watch Specifications
The Pixel Watch has a bezel, it sometimes seems to vanish. Black, silver, and gold are the available colours for the Pixel Watch. The bands are internally bonded; all you need to do is twist and click to secure the band. The 1.6-inch AMOLED touch display on the Google Pixel Watch smartwatch has a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits. The screen features an Always-on mode with a 320ppi pixel density and is shielded by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has a thin appearance on the wrist thanks to the way the striking, round 3D domed glass melds into the stainless steel body. It is designed to be worn day and night and is both scratch- and water-resistant (up to 5 ATM/50 metres).
Additionally, the extensive family of 19 custom watch faces offers thousands of customization possibilities for each watch face, including choices for colours, layout, and the information you want to see most. With Google Photos, you can even make your favourite images your watch face.
Its internal hardware consists of an Exynos 9110 SoC, a Cortex M33 coprocessor, and 2GB of RAM. It utilises Wear OS 3.5, with watch faces and tiles that you can easily personalise, you can decide whether to view a lot of information or not at a glance. Your hands-free, personalised assistance on the road is quick thanks to Google Assistant’s built-in features. The Google Home app makes it simple to operate your smart home appliances, or you can just say “Hey, Google” to your watch to change the thermostat, turn on or off the lights, and receive alerts from your Nest doorbell when someone or anything is at the door (with compatible smart devices).
The Pixel Watch, according to Google, has a battery life of up to 24 hours. Check your Gmail and Google Calendar notifications, use Google Wallet to make contactless purchases at merchant locations and on public transportation, and use Maps to obtain turn-by-turn instructions with an interactive view that makes it simple to see where you are and where you’re going. With YouTube Music Premium (which includes three months), you can browse over 100 million songs, cache your favourite playlists using the device’s generous 32GB of storage, and stream without a phone using built-in 4G LTE cellular. Additionally, you can access even more apps straight on your wrist through the Google Play Store, including Adidas Running, Calm, Spotify, MyFitnessPal, and Strava.
A function called Emergency SOS on the Google Pixel Watch lets you notify trusted contacts or emergency services when you’re in danger or experiencing an emergency. This option gives you additional peace of mind. Fall detection (due in 2023) can tell if you’ve fallen hard, calling emergency services for you and even phoning you on its own if you’re not responding.
You get a precise reading of your heart rate that is continually tracked at once per second thanks to on-device machine learning and deep optimization all the way down to the processor level. With 40 activity modes available to track your favourite workouts and all-day activities including steps, distance with built-in GPS, and Active Zone Minutes, to help you push through that additional rep during workouts, the Fitbit experience has been fully reimagined for the Google Pixel Watch.
