Google Pixel Watch: A price close to the Apple Watch 8 and therefore far from affordable

After seeing a preview of the Pixel Watch and Pixel 7 design during Google I/O 2022, we wondered how much its new products would cost. A new leak has just revealed the price and technical data sheet of Google’s first connected watch. The Pixel Watch would be close to the Apple Watch 8 in terms of price and therefore not at all affordable.

  • Google’s Pixel Watch should be available in 4G and Wifi versions
  • The 4G and Wifi models are expected to cost $350 and $400, respectively.
  • The Google Pixel Watch will launch on October 6

Pixel Watch: Google’s smartwatch would be as expensive as the Apple Watch 8

According to documents obtained by 9to5Google, the Google Pixel Watch could cost $350 in its basic WiFi version. In contrast, the 4G version of the Pixel Watch could be priced at $400, which is only a $50 difference.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 starts at $280 and the cheapest Apple Watch SE 2022 costs $250. The price of the Pixel Watch would therefore place it in the premium segment and on par with the Apple Watch 8 GPS.

In addition to the price, the colors of the Pixel Watch have also been mentioned. Both versions should be available with a case in Black, Gold and Silver. Apart from the silver case, the colors of the straps will be similar between the two watches with it. But we can assume that these bracelets will be replaceable.

Pixel Watch: The technical sheet

It was previously reported that Google will be using a dual-processor setup for its smartwatch, along with an amount of RAM that could be more than the Galaxy Watch 5’s 1.5GB. Additionally, the Pixel Watch will work with Wear OS 3. Other than these details, not much else is known at this time.

Google’s next Pixel event is almost two weeks away. The search giant is expected to introduce the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch. So don’t be surprised to see new device information being revealed.

What do you think could be the advantages of the Google Pixel Watch over its competitors?
