the technical sheet is clarified before the official launch

Google will present in the fall of 2022 with its new Pixel 7 its first connected watch, the Pixel Watch. Before its official launch, we already know a little more about its technical sheet, and in particular about the sensors that will be presented on the back.

Google scrapped the existence of the Pixel Watch at its Google I/O 2022 conference earlier this month, but didn’t share any information about its watch’s specs. 9to5Google has therefore lifted the veil on a good part of the technical sheet before its presentation.

In a new report, 9to5Google has clarified the spec sheet for Google’s next Pixel Watch. Shortly after confirming that the watch was going to be powered by an old Exynos 9110 chip, which was already found on the 2018 Galaxy Watchwe now know that she will not be alone.

Indeed, Google account uses another low-power chip on its watch. This would be responsible for the Always-on display mode, which allows you to read the time when the screen is off, or to manage certain sensors. This should allow the watch to enjoy a better autonomy.

The Pixel Watch will be the watch with the most RAM

According to 9to5Google, the Pixel Watch should offer a storage capacity of 32 GB, but above all more RAM than any other smartwatch on the market. While the Galaxy Watch 4 is equipped with 1.5 GB of RAM, the new Pixel Watch should “ slightly higher than this total », without further details. So the watch is expected to hit around 2GB of RAM, which would be a first for the industry. The Wear OS operating system could therefore be much smoother than with the competition.

Finally, our colleagues are able to confirm that the Pixel Watch will directly inherit the know-how of Fitbit, which Google acquired in 2021, for the health part. We will find sensors visibly identical to the Fitbit Luxe and Charge 5 watches, which we were able to test. The Pixel Watch will therefore benefit from a heart rate sensor, of one SpO2 sensor to measure the oxygen level in the bloodbut above all of a EKG (electrocardiogram), which will allow it to compete directly with the latest generation Apple Watch.
