Yet another Pixel Watch leak claims to reveal US pricing and detailed color combinations

Written by admin

Despite Google’s unconventional willingness to be sure Pixel 7, 7 Pro and Pixel Watch details public well before a formal October 6 event announcement, mystery and/or confusion lingers over some key puzzle pieces.

Almost a month ago there were rumors of the search giant’s very first in-house smartwatch to be released at a suggested price of $399 in a mobile phone variant, suggesting that GPS-only models could start at around $350 or even $320.
But then European prices were tipped yesterday at between €250 and €350 with no 4G LTE support in tow, raising hopes of a US starting tag under $300. Sadly, that probably won’t be the case in the end.

How much does an entry-level Pixel Watch cost?

If we have to trust Max Weinbach from 9to5Google, $349.99…or exactly the starting price derived from the previous (cellular) leak from the same publication. Of course nothing is set in stone until Google will make it official in a few weeks, but Weinbach has in-house retailers listing photos to confirm his latest prophecy, so we’re clearly looking at more than just an informed guess here.

The 9to5Google contributor and occasional Twitter leaker (who has a pretty solid personal track record in this industry) goes on to explicitly debunk yesterday’s European price speculation, which most likely means the highly anticipated Pixel Watch will end up going over $300. costs on the old mainland.

For $350 and more in the US, this Wear OS-powered villain would indeed be positioned between his $280 Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 software platform cousin and the hot new Apple Watch Series 8, which starts at $399.
The premium Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is a bit steeper, fetching $450 in a single 45mm case (without standalone cellular connectivity), while the rugged Apple Watch Ultra is, well, an entirely different animal.
The Pixel Watch, mind you, is also expected to come in one size, reportedly measuring slightly more than the 40mm case of the small Galaxy Watch 5 model, which probably means that with the most expensive version you get back four Benjamins with built-in 4G LTE speeds. Unless of course there is also a premium model in the pipeline, made of titanium or another extra robust material, which seems unlikely at the moment.

These are (probably) all the upcoming Pixel Watch color options

  • Black/Obsidian, Silver/Chalk, Gold/Hazel – Wi-Fi only variant
  • Black/Obsidian, Silver/Anthracite, Gold/Hazel – with LTE

While some of these colorways were also mentioned in yesterday’s Europe-focused report, that chic-sounding combination of gold and hazel is new, combining a potentially striking case with an equally stylish strap.

Just to be clear: the Pixel Watch is today tipped to come in black, silver, and gold case options, with “obsidian” (aka black), “chalk” (aka white or “off-white”), “charcoal” (aka dark gray). ) and “hazel” (aka light green) bands to choose from depending on your chromatic preferences and connectivity needs… a host of other bands likely to be offered as first-party Google alternatives for buyers willing to wait a little longer and potentially pay some sort of premium.
Speaking of waiting, the oft-delayed Pixel Watch is rumored to ship later than the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro handsets. specifically, on or about November 4, although if US retailers already ramp up prices and paint jobs in their systems, an earlier release may also be in the cards. Let’s hope Big G will take this release seriously and manage to produce enough units to meet global demand. After all, some people have been waiting for this thing for several years.
