Google To Unveil Pixel Smartwatch With Pixel 3 Phones
Renowned tech leaker, Evan Blass, claims it’s highly likely Google will release a Pixel-branded smartwatch during October’s major hardware event. The watch is tipped to debut alongside Google’s new Pixel 3 and 3XL smartphones.
The news follows Google’s recent I/O event, and furthers speculation the smartwatch has a major role in its expanding ecosystem.
Besides the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and second-gen Pixel Buds, a reliable source tells me — with high confidence — that Google’s fall hardware event will also introduce a Pixel-branded watch. Have a great summer!

Commentators also question whether Google’s Pixel smartwatch will feature Qualcomm’s new wearable chip.
At its October hardware event, Google is also tipped to release second generation Pixel Buds, which are anticipated to be totally wireless, and comparatively bug-free.
Like its predecessors, Google’s new smartphones will land in two sizes – the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL – and take on the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
