Google is officially unveiling the Pixel 7 smartphones later this week, and we expect to see the company’s first wearable alongside them - the Pixel Watch. Yet in keeping with Google tradition several major leaks revealed all the details about the interface, design, and even a partnership with Fitbit.
The Pixel Watch will track heart rate and sports activities and offer native support for Maps and Wallet. It will support calls and have a fully autonomous version with eSIM.

Promo materials revealed three different versions, each of them with a different strap and mechanism. The button on the side is not news, but now we learn it will be painted to match the main body on all versions.
Fitbit is now part of Google’s portfolio and the reports revealed every Pixel Watch will come with free 6-month membership for Fitbit Premium. However, expectations are the watch to be working with a Google account, meaning some existing users of the fitness tracking platform might have to merge their accounts.
Pixel Watch will also bring integration with Photos, allowing images stored there to be used as wallpapers. The user interface will also have smart home controls, and emergency SOS calling.
The Google Pixel Watch is expected to cost €379 in Europe for the Wi-Fi-only model; the LTE is reportedly launching with a €419 tag.
