Google Pixel Watch: Help by Google, health by Fitbit

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

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, substantial for your activities and workouts, and lightweight to sleep in. The bold, circular 3D domed glass blends seamlessly into the 80% recycled stainless steel case giving it a slim look on the wrist. It is both water-resistant (up to 50 meters) and scratch-resistant, meant to be worn all day and all night. 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 favorites are just a click 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 10 available band choices, and choose from a wide assortment of classic or modern bands in woven, active and leather styles, with metal coming next spring.

And the comprehensive family of 18 customizable watch faces, each with many personalization options – from the colors to the layout and the information you need most – provide thousands of options. You can complete the look whether you want something for your workout, a night out or staying in, even set your favourite photos as your watch face with Google Photos.

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 customize to be information-rich or minimal, the experience is uniquely yours to choose what you see at a glance. With Google Assistant built-in, your personalized 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 adjust the thermostat, 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).

From adjusting the thermostat to turning off the lights, Google Pixel Watch offers various features with the Google Home app to make life more convenient.

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, to cache your favorite playlists using ample 32GB of on-device storage, or streaming phone-free over built-in 4G LTE-cellular. You can access even more apps with Google Play Store right on your wrist, including Adidas Running, Calm, Spotify, MyFitnessPal and Strava.

Powered with Wear OS by Google (Wear OS 3.5), Google Pixel Watch can be customized to deliver all the information and notifications you need throughout that day.

Pixel Buds will automatically connect to your watch if paired with your phone, and you can start a call on your phone and leave the house without it and it will automatically transfer to your Google Pixel Watch. The same fluid handoff between devices happens for listening to your music and Maps for a cohesive experience.

To give you added peace of mind, Google Pixel Watch is also equipped with an Emergency SOS feature to alert emergency responders or trusted contacts when you’re in an emergency or feeling unsafe. Fall Detection can detect if you take a hard fall and will connect you to emergency services, even auto-dialing if you’re unresponsive (coming this winter).

Health and fitness favorites from Fitbit

Google Pixel Watch includes the best of Fitbit’s leading health and fitness features, including its most accurate heart rate tracking yet.

The Fitbit experience is completely redesigned on Google Pixel Watch, with 40 exercise modes available to track your favorite workouts and all-day activities including steps, distance and Active Zone Minutes, to help you push for that extra rep during workouts.
