Google Is Likely to Launch a Pixel Smartwatch

NEWS


Google has remained fairly quiet of late in the wearable devices world and currently only offers a consumer hearables product, the Pixel Buds (which have been fairly successful and seen overall positive reviews), and enterprise smart glasses, the Google Glass Enterprise Edition (which has been more successful than the consumer version, as it has been adopted by a number of companies to improve productivity). The company has focused much of its wearable efforts on its Wear OS platform, which is used by smartwatch companies, such as Fossil, Misfit, Mobvoi, and Tag Heuer, on their own devices. However, in a similar way that Google moved from just offering its Android Operating System (OS) to be used on smartphones from other companies to making its own Nexus and Pixel devices, the company may now be doing the same with smartwatches, as the larger companies—Apple, Samsung, and Huawei—use their own OSs on their recent smartwatches.
