Now, apple watch 8 Already Landed, only one major smartwatch is expected to launch this year, and that is Google Pixel Watch – A wearable that could prove more affordable than Apple’s latest offering.
Here’s what the leaker @Sudhanshu1414 said, in PriceBaba Exclusive – Claims that the Pixel Watch will start at between €250 (~$250/£220/AU$370) and €350 (~$350/£305/AU$520).
Now, the conversion is unlikely to be accurate, but for reference, the Apple Watch 8 starts at €499/$399/£419/AU$629, so it’s well over the price of the Pixel Watch this leak suggests.In fact, Google’s wearable looks will be priced closer to $249/£259/AU$399 Apple Watch SE 2.
So this could be a pretty affordable device – although it’s worth noting that it’s only available in the Wi-Fi version, and the cellular model is expected to cost more.previous leaks MSRP $399 (~£350/AU$595) cellular version.
The latest leak also revealed possible colors, with sources claiming that the Google Pixel Watch will be available in chalk, obsidian, and charcoal shades. This is for the body of the watch, not the strap, which may translate to white, black and grey-blue.
However, we would be skeptical of this claim, especially when earlier leak Point to grey, black and gold – so the choices are slightly different.
We’ll know the truth soon, as Google will launch the wearable in full on October 6, while Google Pixel 7 Wire.
Analysis: Head to head with Samsung
In addition to the Apple Watch series, the main competitors of the Pixel Watch are from Samsung Galaxy Watch 5a wearable that starts at $279 / £269 / AU$499, so if the leaks are accurate, the price could be similar to a Google watch.
However, the Galaxy Watch 5 comes in a variety of sizes, the larger will go up in price, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which starts at $449.99 / £429 / AU$799.99, and goes up if you want cellular connectivity. So while the starting price may be similar, Samsung’s top-of-the-line model is likely to be significantly more expensive.
Does that mean the Pixel Watch will be cheap by then, or just not as good as some best smartwatch from other brands? For now, we’re not sure, but if Google’s smartphone is anything to go by, it’s probably more of the latter.
