What you need to know
- A new leak reveals what could be the final look of Google's upcoming Pixel Watch.
- Codenamed Rohan, the rumored smartwatch appears to have a more curved screen than previously thought.
- The latest leak indicates the wearable device is just around the corner.
The Google Store website has just been redesigned (opens in new tab) for visitors in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, with a top menu that emphasizes Google's phones and watches over its smart home and other products. The change reflects Google's new emphasis on wearables, and a new leak gives us our first look at what appears to be the final design of the Google Pixel Watch (opens in new tab).
Courtesy of 91mobiles (opens in new tab), the latest leak shows a smartwatch with a screen curvature that seems to extend all the way to its back. This is evidenced by the digital crown's stem sticking out from the curved portion of the screen rather than from the case.
Compared to previous leaks, the crown's seamless integration with the screen is more visible in this one. The rest of the image backs up earlier Pixel Watch renders that have popped up in recent months.
A previous leak (opens in new tab) also indicated that the Pixel Watch would most likely make its debut at Google I/O in May. Given that the event is almost upon us, it's possible we're looking at the final design of the wearable.
As you may have already known by now, Google's answer to the best Android smartwatches (opens in new tab) is codenamed "Rohan." It runs Wear OS 3.1, as previously rumored. If this is correct, the Pixel Watch will be a slight downgrade from the Galaxy Watch 4 (opens in new tab), which currently runs Wear OS 3.2.
The leak also highlights the smartwatch's deep integration with Fitbit, which was acquired by Google in 2018 (opens in new tab). We'll probably hear more when Google I/O kicks off next month.
