Google announced a steel Pixel Watch with ECG and Wear OS 3

Along with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Google unveiled another device – the Pixel Watch, rumored to have been developed for several years. They got a round dial, a steel case (at least 80% recycled), and a compact size: 41 mm diagonally, 12.3 mm thick. Without the strap, they weigh only 32 grams.

The curved AMOLED display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The Exynos 9110 chip is responsible for performance. To optimize battery life, a Cortex M33 coprocessor was added. It operates as much as 2 GB of RAM (a first among Wear OS watches) and 32 GB of internal memory.

The standard heart rate and SpO2 sensors, as well as an ECG mode (approved by the American FDA), are provided for health monitoring. It is possible to swim in the watch: 5ATM water resistance is claimed.

The 294 mAh battery is enough for 24 hours of battery life. Fast magnetic charging is supported: 50% in half an hour and 100% in 80 minutes.

The novelty was announced by James Park, the head of Fitbit (Google now owns the company). In addition to the novelty features, he also announced that customers would receive a six-month subscription to Fitbit Premium, which provides workout instructions and advanced health reports based on data from the gadget’s sensors. Also included will be a familiar bonus for Pixel tech – 3 months of YouTube Premium.

In 2023, the watch will learn to detect falls and communicate with emergency services if the user doesn’t respond that they’re okay. It will use a paired smartphone or the LTE module in the watch for communication.

The Pixel Watch will be available in polished silver, matte black, and champagne gold. The Wi-Fi version will cost $350, while the LTE model is priced at $400.
