It looks like Google is not planning to launch a Pixel smartwatch on the market soon. In an interview with Toms Guide, the software giant has made it clear that the company is not planning to launch its own smartwatch this year. Although Google is fully committed to the smartwatch market, it seems that Google needs more time to launch a Pixel watch.
In an interview, the technical director of Google, Miles Barr, said that the focus is now on partners. He added that Google aims to build a "one-size-fits-all" watch and said "I do not think we are already there". After an interview, a PR representative told the publication that no Pixel watch will be available in the short term.

In addition to the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and Pixel Buds of the second gene, a reliable source tells me – with great confidence – that Google's fall hearth hardware event also introduces a Pixel brand watch. Have a good summer!
