A Google smartwatch is due to appear in 2022
Google has emerged as a smartphone manufacturer for several years. Next year, the company wants to expand its product range with a smartwatch. The wearable is currently still codenamed "Rohan", as reported by "The Verge" and "Business Insider". Pixel Watch" is being discussed as a possible name, which is obvious because Google has been successful with the Pixel smartphone in recent years. About a year ago, Google Chromecast released Google TV, its own television device. It seems plausible that Google now wants to expand its product range with a smartwatch.
The smartwatch is not only supposed to show the time, but also monitor some of the user's health functions. Among other things, there is to be a pedometer and a heart rate monitor. .
The smartwatch is to get WearOS 3 as its operating system. This operating system was developed together with Samsung and combines the platforms of Tizen and Google. The Galaxy Watch 4 from Samsung also uses this operating system. However, those who switch from this Watch to the Google product should not expect the same functionality. WearOS 3 has been modified according to Samsung's needs. Some functions can only be accessed if a Samsung mobile phone is used in addition to the Watch. The price is supposed to be oriented towards the Apple Watch.
