Google Unveils Pixel Watch, Pixel 7 Series, Pixel 6a, Buds Pro, and More at I/O 2022

Usually, the I/O conference organized by Google focuses on software updates and launches. This year, things were different as it teased a lot of upcoming gadgets. The show's star was a Pixel Watch, but other gadgets are also worth looking at. Keep scrolling to know more about them.

Pixel Watch

After making fans wait for years, Google finally unveiled some details about the Pixel Watch. The company didn't share a full image, which was a disappointment. The watch is expected to be launched later this fall, along with Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. So, an October launch is expected.

The Google Pixel Watch will run WearOS and feature "deep integration" with Fitbit. You will be able to monitor your heart rate, sleep, and fitness if you own one. It will also feature a voice assistant, wallet integration, and support the Google Home app.

Google Pixel Watch will be able to pair with Android devices only. It will also be 4G-compatible, allowing it to function independently without being near a phone if you invest in its own data plan. To make it work, the phone and the watch would need to be on the same network.

Google Pixel Watch is expected to be a premium product and give tough competition to smartwatches from Apple and Samsung, the current market leaders. It will also compete with several third-party Android watches that run on Google's Wear operating system.

Rick Osterloh, senior vice-president of devices and services at Google, stated the combination of "Google's ecosystem and Fitbit expertise" made the watch unique.

It features a 6.1-inch OLED display with a centered hole-punch selfie camera and a 60Hz refresh rate.

It also has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, an 8-megapixel shooter on the front, and a 4,410mAh battery.

Costing $259 in Canada, these high-end wireless earbuds are expected to launch sometime this year. These are designed to automatically switch between Android devices via "intelligent" audio switching, just like Apple's AirPods. They are also IPX4 water-resistant.

The tablet is expected to launch in 2023 and will run on the Google Tensor chip. It will probably be launched in white and green color variants. It will also have a cool front-facing camera that will simplify video calls.
