Google’s Pixel Watch is lastly coming to India and Android customers will now have an alternative choice to select from when shopping for a smartwatch. The primary Pixel Watch did not launch in India, and we’re solely getting the Pixel Watch 2, which I imagine was resolution from Google. The Pixel Watch 2 is anticipated to launch alongside the Pixel 8 sequence on the upcoming Made by Google occasion scheduled for October 4. The primary Pixel Watch, though an ideal wanting smartwatch and a good first try, has a few kinks. I have been utilizing the Pixel Look ahead to a part of a 12 months and this is why I believe Google did not carry it to India.

The Pixel Watch was introduced final 12 months on the Made by Google occasion alongside the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Professional. Google’s smartwatch has been a very long time within the making, and after they lastly unveiled it, most individuals beloved the design, together with me. It has a really distinctive design with a dome glass and a spherical dial with a digital crown. It simply stands out from the remainder of the smartwatches and appears beautiful. I actually imagine that it is the finest wanting smartwatch at present obtainable out there.

It is also a good first try by Google. The Pixel Watch is not the perfect in relation to well being monitoring, however it stored up with the most recent Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 lineup and even the most recent Apple Watch. I in contrast my Pixel Watch’ well being monitoring knowledge reminiscent of steps, train monitoring, sleep monitoring, and coronary heart price, and a few different metrics with a Galaxy Watch 5 (Evaluate) and an Apple Watch SE (2nd gen), and the accuracy was spot on.

When it comes to software program, I discovered the Pixel Watch’s interface, which is inventory Put on OS 3.5, to be a lot smoother than the Galaxy Watch 5. The battery life was its weakest level although. On a full cost, the Pixel Watch lasted lower than 16 hours with AOD turned on. With AOD turned off and different battery saving options enabled, I did get a day’s value of battery life, however throw in a exercise or two, and you may have to cost it at evening.

A variety of customers additionally weren’t proud of the scale of the show, which in comparison with the Galaxy Watch 5 or the 40mm Apple Watch, was type of small. Let’s additionally not neglect the bezels on the Pixel Watch, which makes the display look even smaller. Nevertheless, I didn’t thoughts the small dial dimension or the bezels, as Google did job with hiding the bezels with intelligent software program. Nearly the entire watch faces on the Pixel Watch have black borders, which mix in with that thick bezel.

The Pixel Watch can be not notably sturdy. The dome glass with shiny end meant that any small scratches had been clearly seen, and there is additionally the massive drawback with the glass simply cracking in case you had been to bang the perimeters to a desk or a wall. There was additionally no glass substitute, which meant that you just needed to be very cautious or slap on a glass protector, which is what I instantly did as quickly as I obtained the watch.

Google priced the Pixel Watch at $349.99 (roughly Rs. 28,700) for the non-LTE variant, whereas the LTE model was priced at $399.99 (roughly Rs. 32,800). At this worth vary, the Pixel Watch really provided much less in comparison with its competitors.

In the meantime, the smartwatch market in India is led by manufacturers reminiscent of BoAt, Hearth-Boltt, and Noise, who make inexpensive smartwatches. Subsequently, with all the issues with the Pixel Watch, I imagine it was name by Google to not launch in India. The search large additionally hadn’t had an ideal presence in India because it had solely launched the Pixel 6a in India for the reason that Pixel 3. With the launch of the Pixel 7 sequence in India, Google in all probability needed to check the markets. And now, Google believes that customers in India are prepared for a Pixel Watch. That is in all probability why the Pixel Watch 2 is being dropped at India.

With the Pixel Watch 2, Google in all probability has had extra time to refine and make its smartwatch higher. Current leaks have advised that the brand new smartwatch from Google will kind of look the identical because the predecessor. Nevertheless, it’s anticipated to supply improved well being monitoring, higher efficiency with a more recent chipset, extra bands, and longer battery life. The Pixel Watch 2 is confirmed to be obtainable on Flipkart beginning October 5.
