Google Pixel Watch: the Best of Google and Fitbit

As part of our latest offering of Google devices, we’re officially unveiling our first full-featured premium smartwatch: Google Pixel Watch. A natural extension of the Pixel family, the Google Pixel Watch combines the smarts and helpfulness you know and love from Google with Fitbit’s health and fitness expertise, all in an elegant design.

Now with Google smarts right on your wrist, you can get things done on the go with Google Assistant, Maps, Wallet, Calendar and Gmail. Plus, with a 4G LTE option available at select providers, you can stay connected on the go, even when you leave your phone at home.1 2

A beautiful design, you can truly make your own

Designed with comfort and durability in mind, the Google Pixel Watch is sophisticated for a night out or a business meeting, can endure your activities and workouts, and is pleasant to sleep in. The bold, circular 3D domed glass blends seamlessly into the stainless steel body giving it a slim look on the wrist. It is both water-resistant (up to 5 ATM/50 metres)3 and scratch-resistant, meant to be worn all day. Inspired by a classic timepiece, the tactile crown controls on-screen scrolling, accesses shortcuts and initiates the app tray to get you the helpful information you need. The side button subtly above the crown opens your most-recently used apps, so favourites are just a click away.

Wrapped in a stainless steel body and slim, sophisticated design, Google Pixel Watch has your favourite features just a swipe away.

The unique band attach mechanism — inspired by how a camera lens attaches to a camera body — makes it easy to change bands to transform the overall look of the watch. Switch up your style with 20 available band choices, and choose from a wide assortment of classic or modern bands in woven, stretch, active and leather styles, with metal coming next year.4

And the comprehensive family of 19 customisable watch faces, each with many personalisation options – from the colours to the layout and the information you need most – provide thousands of options. You can even set your favourite photos as your watch face with Google Photos.

Whether it’s a new watch face or accessory band, Google Pixel Watch offers thousands of combinations to personalise your look.

A grouping of more than 35 watch faces with various on-screen designs appear in several rows.

Google help goes with you

Google Pixel Watch is powered with Wear OS by Google (Wear OS 3.5) and delivers the information you need at a glance, making life more convenient and providing help whenever and wherever you need it. Interaction is extremely smooth, responsive and easy to use. With tiles and watch faces that you can easily customise to be information-rich or minimal, the experience is uniquely yours to show you what you need at a glance. With Google Assistant built in, your personalised help on the go is quick and hands-free. You can easily control your smart home devices through the Google Home app or just say “Hey, Google” to your watch to turn on or off the lights, and get notifications from your Nest Doorbell when a person or package is at the door (with compatible smart devices).

Check your notifications from Gmail and Google Calendar, make contactless payments in stores and at transit with Google Wallet, and get turn-by-turn directions with Maps, including an interactive view that makes it easy to see where you are and where you’re going. Enjoy access to over 100 million songs with YouTube Music Premium, and cache your favourite playlists using ample 32GB of on-device storage, or with the 4G LTE model you can stream phone-free. Get access to even more apps with Google Play Store right on your wrist, including Adidas Running, Calm, Spotify, MyFitnessPal and Strava.

The Google Pixel Watch is a great companion to the Pixel devices you already love. With Fast Pair, your Pixel Buds will automatically connect to your watch once paired with your phone, and you can start a call on the watch and conveniently transition to your phone once in reach. The same fluid handoff between devices also allows for listening to your music and Maps.

To give you added peace of mind, Google Pixel Watch is equipped with an Emergency SOS feature to alert emergency services or trusted contacts when you’re in an emergency or feeling unsafe.

Health and fitness favourites from Fitbit

Google Pixel Watch has a deep integration with Fitbit to provide leading health and fitness features, including our most accurate heart rate tracking yet. With on-device machine learning and deep optimisation down to the processor level, it gives you an accurate measurement of your heart rate continuously tracking at once per second. The Fitbit experience is completely redesigned on Google Pixel Watch, with 40 exercise modes available to track your favourite workouts and all-day activities including steps, distance with built-in GPS and Active Zone Minutes, to help you push for that extra rep during workouts.

Google Pixel Watch is designed to comply with a water protection rating of 5 ATM under ISO standard 22810:2010 when manufactured, but it is not waterproof. Water resistance is not a permanent condition and decreases or is lost over time due to normal wear and tear, repair, disassembly or damage. Dropping your device may result in loss of water resistance. Google Pixel Watch is designed to be used in shallow water and should not be used for activities involving water at high velocity or high temperature. Some Google Pixel Watch bands are not water resistant. See g.co/pixelwatch/water for details. After any exposure to liquid, we recommend drying the watch and band because, as with any wearable device, it's best for your skin if the band is clean and dry.
