Google to launch Pixel smartwatch next year - report

Monday 6 December 2021 | 13:56 CET | News
Google plans to introduce its first in-house smartwatch next year, Insider reported citing sources close to the matter. The company's Pixel hardware group is working on the watch, codenamed "Rohan", separately from Fitbit, acquired earlier this year for USD 2.1 billion. The device is expected to cost more than a Fitbit and compete more directly with the Apple Watch, according to sources quoted by The Verge. It will have basic fitness tracking features, including step counting and a heart rate monitor.
