Pixel-Branded Smartwatch will launch later this year, alongside Pixel 3

According to Evan Blass (@evleaks), a Pixel-branded watch will launch later this year, alongside the already expected Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

On top of this news that Google may keep attempting this whole wearable thing, @evleaks also mentions second generation Pixel Buds, a sequel to the Google Assistant-toting earbuds that launched last year after Google I/O.

Now, as for the watch, we have to hope that Google spent a lot of time thinking about what they want to showcase on it. It seems like a safe bet that Google Assistant will play a big role, but unless Google makes Wear OS truly something that can compete with the Apple Watch, it could be another bust.

Google usually holds its Pixel events in early October, with the phones hitting stores a couple of weeks after that. In other words, there’s plenty of time for all the Pixel 3 and Pixel Watch details to leak, now that Blass has opened the floodgates.
