Latest reports suggest the Pixel Watch (or Pixel Time, as some have taken to call it) is not coming this year. Google clearly plans to bring its own device to market in the future but isn8217;t yet ready.
Miles Barr, Google’s director of engineering for Wear OS, said as much in an interview with Tom8217;s Guide: 8220;To think of a one-size-fits-all watch, I don’t think we’re there yet. Our focus is on our partners for now,8221; he explained.
The main reason given is that the smartwatch market is purposely fragmented; there isn8217;t one perfect watch for every person. Also, unlike a phone, a watch is partly a fashion item 8211; something to be seen wearing rather than just a functional device.
Barr told Tom8217;s Guide that his ideal Pixel Watch would 8220;focus heavily on Google Assistant and AI learning8221;, which gives an idea of what to expect somewhere down the line, but it won8217;t be in the foreseeable future.
