Google recently announced its plans to release its first ever Pixel Smartwatch. Google has been offering its Android-based operating system for smartwatches over the years. However, this will be the first time the company release a smartwatch of its own.
The Android-based operating system which was once called Android Wear was also recently renamed to Wear OS. There isn’t much details available about the watches but according to recent updates, Google is working on three Pixel branded watches.
These new smartwatches have been code-named: Triton, Ling and Sardine. All three smartwatches will be powered by Qualcomm’s next-generation processor for wearables dubbed the Snapdragon 3100 chipset.
One of the main advantages of the Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform is that it uses a new power management system. The new power management system enables longer battery life among other features for smaller wearable and fitness trackers.
Google is still a little hush-hush on the specifications of the smartwatches, so far they have code-named them seafood names which could mean that they have fully waterproof capabilities.
