Google Announces Launch of Pixel Watch 2, Accompanying Pixel 8 on Oct. 4
In an exciting development, Google has confirmed that it will be releasing a highly anticipated new smartwatch – the Pixel Watch 2. The announcement comes ahead of the much-awaited launch event for the Pixel 8 on Oct. 4, adding to the anticipation surrounding Google’s latest products.
To build up excitement, Google has released a brief 15-second teaser video showcasing the sleek design of the Pixel Watch 2. The video reveals that the watch will feature a round design, a prominent rotatable crown on the right side, and a single button located above the crown. Additionally, the watch face showcased in the teaser displays a quartet of app widgets neatly positioned beneath the watch hands.

It remains uncertain whether there will be any changes from the previous model’s starting price of $350 (£339, AU$549).
With the launch event just around the corner, tech enthusiasts and fans of wearable devices are eagerly looking forward to getting their hands on Google’s latest creations.
