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.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
