Google has finally revealed its smartwatch. Named the Pixel Watch, the company has confirmed that it will be coming this 'fall' - likely meaning between September and November.

The Google Pixel Watch combines its own Wear operating system with Fitbit health tracking.

Although the tech giant has supported smartwatches through its wearable operating system and completed its acquisition of Fitbit for $2.1bn (£1.7bn) last year, this is Google's first branded smartwatch.

The watch can be paired with Android devices only and is 4G-compatible, which means it can function on its own without being near a phone - but to do this it requires its own data plan. Both the phone and watch would also need to be on the same network, according to Google.

There's not much need for design leaks because Google itself has shown us what the Pixel Watch looks like, as you can see in the image.

“This includes a circular screen, a - presumably rotatable - crown, and a build made of recycled stainless steel. The company also promises customizable bands that will seamlessly attach", reports TechRadar.

As such, the Pixel Watch looks set to be a rather clean and minimalist smartwatch, somewhat in keeping with the design of other Pixel devices. Interchangeable bands, meanwhile, would offer wearers a bit of customization.

According to a leak by 9to5Google, the Pixel Watch could have 32 GB of internal storage. For a smartwatch, that’s a lot. The only reason we can think of having that much storage would be for downloading music files.

Pricing for the Pixel Watch is a mystery. Still, we can speculate a bit. Because Google owns Fitbit, it will probably avoid placing the Pixel Watch in the same price category as Fitbit products. That means it could cost more than the $200 Fitbit Sense.”
