Google will unveil the Pixel Watch later this week, revealing the price, release date and all the features of the wearable. But we don’t have to wait that long for those details, because Amazon has delivered again. After the retailer leaked the Pixel 7 price a few days ago, Amazon Germany did the same for the Watch. The laptop was accidentally made available for pre-order on Amazon Germany for a brief period before this week’s launch event.
The Pixel Watch was leaked last year when rumors claimed that Google was ready to compete with Apple. But the Pixel Watch has seen delays as Google reportedly decided to refine the product.
Rumors started picking up steam again in early 2022. Then Google threw in the towel in May and decided to stop trying to hide its next new wearable.
The company confirmed the Pixel Watch’s name and design, but didn’t reveal a release date or price. As was the case with the Pixel 7 series, Google only teased the device, hinting that we would learn more details later this year.
Pixel Watch price and release date
The Google Pixel Watch launch event is scheduled for October 6. But thanks to Amazon Germany, we don’t have to wait for the press conference to learn more about the Pixel Watch.
A die SmartDroid The writers say they were able to pre-order the Pixel Watch Wi-Fi from Amazon Germany for €357 ($349). The wearable has an October 13 release date in the region.
As a reminder, European prices include VAT. Therefore, they are not indicative of US prices.
Also, we can’t compare the price of the Pixel Watch to other Google wearables. It’s the first Google-branded smartwatch, although Google also owns Fitbit.
But we can compare the price of the Pixel Watch with Apple’s 2022 Apple Watch models.
If the price is right, that’s what EU customers will have to pay for the Pixel Watch. Comparatively, the Apple Watch SE 2 starts at €299. The Apple Watch Series 8 starts at €499 or €529, depending on size.
The Apple Watch SE 2 starts at $249 and the cheapest 41mm Series 8 is $399 in the US. You can see the best prices in our guide to Apple Watch deals.
This indicates that the Pixel Watch will fall between the Apple Watch SE 2 and the Apple Watch Series 8 when it comes to price.
Amazon Germany’s pre-order page also reveals that shoppers will get free access to Fitbit Premium for six months.
Features also leak for Google’s new wearable
Along with listing the Pixel Watch’s price and release date, the Amazon Germany pre-order page provides a few more details about the wearable.
Google will sell a 4G/LTE version of the Watch, which is expected to be more expensive than the Wi-Fi/GPS model. Amazon’s listing says cellular models allow users to play music, use Google Assistant, write emails or messages, and make phone calls without a smartphone nearby.
Users will also be able to set emergency contacts that the Pixel Watch can alert in the event of an accident.
In addition to a smartphone, the Pixel Watch will also be paired with Pixel Buds. And the wearable will support smart home control.
Additionally, the Pixel Watch is customizable when it comes to the user interface. You can adapt the layout and dial to your style. Choices will include digital and analog dials, as well as modern looks.
The listing also reveals that the Pixel Watch is water resistant to 5 ATM or 50 meters. Plus, it features scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. That’s essential given the notebook’s round design and those large bezels. Hopefully it will have some kind of drop resistance as well.
