What you need to know
- Google is expected to launch the long-awaited Pixel Watch this year.
- A new image shows an interactive tutorial of “Pixel Rohan” running Wear OS 3.
- The leak suggests that the Pixel Watch may be released quite soon.
Google I / O is only a month away, which means we’ll definitely hear more about Wear OS 3 coming on more smartwatches. A new image suggests that the long-rumored Pixel Watch may soon be among them.
The picture was published last Friday by delicious Evan Blass, who states that it “will not last long now.” The screenshot shows an “interactive tutorial” by Pixel Rohan. The device is shown to be running Wear OS 3.1.
Rohan has long been known as the internal code name for Pixel Watch. Of course, we expect the device to run Wear OS 3, even though the screen shows Wear OS 3.1. Interestingly, this is a bit behind version 3.2, which is currently available on the Galaxy Watch 4.
It is unclear exactly what the circumstances behind this are. Still, the screenshot alone makes the possibility of a Pixel Watch seem even more likely, something that is likely to be a huge relief for Wear OS fans who have been following rumors for years.
Recent rumors suggest that Google is teasing the Pixel Watch at its upcoming conference on May 11, with a launch later along with the Pixel 7 series.
We’ll probably also hear more about improvements to Wear OS 3, which has only been available on the Galaxy Watch 4 with the One UI Watch on top. It’s been about a year since Google announced the update, but the company has largely been the mother of the “stock” experience since then. However, the company has previously stated that selected Wear OS 2.x devices would be updated sometime around mid-2022, which is fast approaching.
So far, the emulator has provided an insight into what we can expect from “stock” Wear OS 3. But from that point of view, the update and Pixel Watch will probably breathe new life into the best Wear OS watches and hopefully the platform as a whole.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
If you want the latest and greatest version of Wear OS, look no further than Galaxy Watch 4. It has a great design, a wealth of health and fitness features and connects willfully with other Galaxy smartphones.
