This could be our first look at official Google Pixel Watch images

Leaked marketing images reveal a smartwatch with no physical bezel.

What you need to know

  • Official marketing images of the rumored Google Pixel Watch have cropped up.
  • Google's first smartwatch will likely run Wear OS 3 at launch.
  • The wearable is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2022.

Google has been skipping developing its own Wear OS smartwatch for many years, despite having the resources to do so, let alone its long-standing Android wearable platform. However, renders of the Google Pixel Watch surfaced earlier this year, courtesy of Jon Prosser, raising hopes that Google's first smartwatch would be released soon.

While the long-awaited Pixel Watch did not make an appearance alongside the Google Pixel 6 series in October, a new report emerged a few days ago claiming that the smartwatch would be unveiled early next year. A new leak now gives us what looks like a solid proof that Google is indeed preparing to launch its own Wear OS smartwatch soon.

Jon Prosser has revealed what appear to be official marketing images of the Pixel Watch, which corroborate previous rumors about its design. The marketing images show a round watch body with no bezel. It will also most likely have standard health tracking capabilities as well as proprietary bands. You can watch more images below:

It's also possible that the smartwatch will run Google's Wear OS 3, a version of the platform created in collaboration with Samsung. Only Samsung's best Android smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 4 series, currently support Wear OS 3.

That said, Wear OS 3 is expected to arrive on more wearables in the middle of 2022, including future Fossil Gen 6 models and select Mobvoi TicWatch smartwatches. In light of the most recent leak, the Pixel Watch appears to be a worthy addition to that list.

The watch is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2022, ahead of the scheduled Wear OS 3 rollout to more smartwatches.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
