➡️ The Shortcut Skinny: Pixel Watch in the wild
👀 First photos of the Pixel Watch in the wild worn by Google’s CEO
🚀 Pixel Watch’s launch event was announced today for Tues., October 6
⌚ The circular watch with a green band wasn’t mentioned on stage
🍎 Teaser comes hours before Apple wows us with Watch 8 and Watch Pro
The Apple Watch 8 and Apple Watch Pro are going to make some news at the iPhone 14 launch event later today, but a few hours ago, we got our first glimpse of the Google Pixel Watch in the wild at the Code Conference. That’s in the wild outside of Google IO and actually turned on (unlike the Pixel Watch left behind at a restaurant).
The timing was perfect.
Less than 24 hours ago, we learned when the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch launch event will happen: Tuesday, October 6 at 10am ET. (Note: that’s not the Google Pixel 7 release date, but we’ll learn about the date at this event – I know launch event date vs release date is confusing to some readers).
The alleged Google Pixel Watch appeared to be on the wrist of Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai while he talked with tech journalist Kara Swisher. Pichai wasn’t questioned about the Pixel Watch, sadly, and dodged all product questions.

The Pixel Watch was first spotted by two reliable tech journalists – Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who took a photos and posted them to Twitter, and CNET’s David Lumb, who was on the scene at the Code Conference and described the Pixel Watch with some finer context. It’s a watch with a circular dial and a green band (Yup – that matches the unique style of the upcoming Google Pixel Watch).
We know a bit more about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, but the specs of the Google Pixel Watch remain mystery. We’ll find out more about the WearOS smartwatch on October 6 – unless more leaks come out between now and then.
