A pricey addition to Google Watch

Google Watch

It’s possible that Google’s smartwatch, Google Watch, might be more expensive than Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5. The Google Pixel Watch may not meet premium-price expectations.

Google I/O this year showed us the Pixel Watch, but specifics were scarce. Google’s new watch won’t be cheap, but it won’t be the most expensive wearable, either, a pricing leak suggests. 9to5Google reports a source says the watch costs $399 with cellular. Further pricing and details can be extrapolated.

The new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is available with LTE networking for $329/£319/AU$599 or $359/£339/AU$649 for a bigger variant with a larger screen and battery. If Google only launches one size, it will likely be akin to the larger Galaxy Watch 5 or Watch 5 Pro, therefore we may guess it will cost $40 more.

Google’s Pixel Watch could cost $349. Samsung’s bigger watch costs $309/£289/AU$549. Putting Google between Samsung and Apple.

It will cost so much?

The Apple Watch 7 starts at $399 / £369 / AU$599, with luxury materials and watch bands driving up the price. Google’s Pixel Watch shares the Apple Watch’s crown dial, which is interesting. Google uses design to attract premium customers.

Since Google bought Fitbit last year, we know the next Google watch will include Fitbit capabilities. Pixel Watch only works with Android, not just Pixel phones.

We don’t know if it will have skin temperature sensing like the Fitbit Sense 2 and Apple Watch 8. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 features a sensor for the feature, but it’s inactive.

We expect the Google Pixel Watch to launch this autumn alongside the Pixel 7, also revealed at Google I/O. Rumors point to late September or October. Our Google Pixel 7 hub has all the details.
