Google tipped to launch three Pixel-branded smartwatches this year
It looks like 2018 shapes up to be a great year for Google. After officially revealing Android P earlier this week, Google is readying for yet another major event where the Mountain View company is likely to announce two Pixel smartphones.

However, according to leakster Evan Blass, Google plans to introduce its first Pixel-branded watch this fall along with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. However, those waiting for Google's own wearables to make it to market will be pleased to know the company is actually working on three different smartwatches.

Roland Quandt of claims Google's first Pixel-branded smartwatches are codenamed “Triton,” “Ling,” and “Sardine.” All of them will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and should feature more efficient battery consumption.

Unfortunately, it's yet unclear whether these are just different sized versions, multiple variants with and without LTE support, or completely different models. Hopefully, we'll learn more about Google's plans for the wearable market sooner rather than later.
