Google tipped to launch three Pixel-branded smartwatches this year
by Cosmin Vasile / May 10, 2018, 5:03 PM
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 Winfuture.de 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.

With Googles AI and hopefully maps onboard, if the watches look good they’ll hopefully pose a serious threat to the Apple Watch and upcoming Gear S4.

If the battery life is dramatically increased maybe...but otherwise I doubt it will garner much interest over anything else currently available.

I think Google and Apple each have a majority in different markets that the other is trying hard to get into. For Apple, they now represent 50% of all smartwatch sales which will be tough for Google to crack. Conversely, Google has a 20% share in the smart speaker segment that Apple is barely able to compete in at the moment.

Me too. I've been itching to buy one. But i will only buy WHEN the cpu is ultra efficient (10nm/8nm), and the battery is good for 1-2 weeks. Because I'm not planning to buy smartwatch in every 2 or 3 years.
