Google Pixel Watch release date just announced by a leaker

A new Google Pixel Watch release date rumor claims that Google’s first in-house smartwatch could launch before the summer.

The advice comes from none other than Jon Prosser, the source of several Pixel Watch rumors last year. In a tweet posted today (Jan 21), Prosser said he “hears Google plans to release [the Pixel Watch] on Thursday, May 26.

This is the first time a specific release date has been cited since the Pixel Watch failed to materialize alongside the Google Pixel 6 series in October 2021. Prosser previously reported that the smartwatch would arrive in early 2022, while a first from Insider also suggested that we’d finally see the wearable this year.

We generally suggest taking these kinds of rumors with a grain of salt. Better yet, Prosser tempered his own reporting by saying that Google is known “for pushing dates back.” The tipster even said, “we’ll know” if May 26 is no longer the expected Pixel Watch release date.

The Pixel Watch remains an elusive product. We’ve gone long periods without Pixel Watch rumors or news, sometimes making it seem like the smartwatch isn’t happening. Leaks are common for Google devices in development, and very little has yet been shared about the so-called Pixel Watch.

Here’s what we’ve heard: Pixel Watch will be Google’s in-house wearable designed to be the best smartwatch for Pixel smartphone users. Just like iPhone users have the Apple Watch 7 and Samsung phone users have the Galaxy Watch 4, the Pixel Watch could be an ideal addition to the Google Pixel ecosystem.

Insider reported in December 2021 that the watch will cost more than a Fitbit, though the best Fitbit devices range widely in price, from a sub-$100 fitness band to the premium-feeling Fitbit Sense.

Google now owns Fitbit, too, and has said that Fitbit’s fitness tracking features will eventually be added to Wear OS, Google’s wearable software. The new version of Wear OS (called Wear OS 3) has yet to be released beyond the Galaxy Watch 4, though smartwatches with the Snapdragon 4100+ processor should be eligible for the upgrade sometime this year.

Right now, smartwatch makers using Wear OS are waiting for Google to roll out Wear OS 3 support for third-party devices. Although there’s no way to know for sure, it’s possible that Google is being patient for the polished version of Wear OS to debut on the Pixel Watch, adding more hype to the alleged smartwatch announcement. Again, this is just our speculation.

Still, if it exists, the Pixel Watch has the potential to be the best Android smartwatch yet. For more on the future, check out our guide to Google in 2022.
